new and noteworthy tv: 1/30-2/5

Looks like mid-season is kicking off with a few new entries.

  • Super Bowl Greatest Commercials (CBS) Tuesday, 8pm – Hosts Boomer Esiason and Daniela Ruah count ’em down.
  • Showtime at the Apollo (Fox) Wednesday, 8pm – Steve Harvey hosts.
  • The 100 (CW) Season Premiere, Wednesday, 9pm – I was super into this show for a while but found it slipping, fan blowback for handling of certain characters aside, but curious to see where we go this season.
  • Madiba (BET) Miniseries Premiere, Wednesday, 8pm – I haven’t heard anything about this Laurence Fishburne led Mandela three part account.
  • Powerless (NBC) Series Premiere, Thursday, 8:30pm – A comedic entry into the DC Comics world where every day folk toil around superhero adjacent insurance scenarios, looks less than groundbreaking but perhaps a look.
  • Superior Donuts (CBS) Series Premiere, Thursday, 8:30pm – New school and old school set in a donut shop with Judd Hirsch as the old school, gives possibilities for this comedy to find its stride.
  • Training Day (CBS) Series Premiere, Thursday, 10pm – Another questionable entry into the movie premise spun for TV with Bill Baxton as a reportedly less menacing Denzel.
  • Santa Clarita Diet (Net) Series Premiere, Friday – I’d watch Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant in anything so I’ll tune into what looks like a tongue in cheek suburban zombie fare.
  • 24: Legacy (Fox) Sunday, 7:30pm – Rumor has it this has some of the pros and cons about the original 24 so use that as you gauge.
