Political Animals (USA Network, Sunday) — I was actually excited about the USA Network series barely disguised as Hilary Clinton fan-fic, mostly because of Carla Gugino. But I thought the opening episode was pretty lousy, through and through.
Newsroom (HBO, Sunday) — Newsroom, on the other hand, I continue to like more and more, and I thought for all its over-the-top manipulations (and despite the Coldplay song) that the fourth episode was the best of the season so far.
Weeds (Showtime, Sunday) — It’s ironic that Weeds — the show that nearly stopped Breaking Bad from happening — would also be in its final season, airing on the same night. Thank God Vince Gilligan forgot to order Showtime.
Comedy Bang! Bang! (IFC, Friday) — Tune in tonight to see Ed Helms, because apparently this show loves everyone that’s ever been on The Office or Parks and Recreation, which isn’t at all a bad thing.
The Dark Knight Rises (Movie Theaters, All of Them) — Do it. Go see it. It’s a bargain at three times the price. Just don’t go on Sunday night.
