The 2014 Winter Olympics (NBC, 8 p.m) — The Olympics has laid waste to Thursday night programming, so rather than wasting your time and mine on a synopsis of tonight’s Rake, I instead found some clips from The Critic, which premiered 20 years ago last month. Our feelings on missing that anniversary…?
American Idol (Fox, 8 p.m.) — IT STINKS.
The Taste (ABC, 8 p.m.) — I’d rather, ugh, READ than watch this.
Rake (Fox, 9 p.m.) — Rake? More like MAKE way for El Kabong.
Party Down South (CMT, 10 p.m.) — That’s a more disappointing title than Honey I Ate the Kids.
LATE NIGHT GUESTS: Kevin Hart, SI Swimsuit Issue cover model, and Alex Pettyfer on Kimmel; Matt LeBlanc and Abbie Cornish on Ferguson; and Gary Oldman on Conan.
