What’s On Tonight: Katey Sagal Is An Erin Brockovich-Inspired ‘Rebel,’ And The ‘Glee’ Cast Reunites For GLAAD

Rebel (ABC, 10:00pm EST) — Steven Soderbergh’s Erin Brockovich (2000) led to an Oscar win for Julia Roberts and the household-name elevation of the environmental activist who persisted with her cause (justice!) despite all odds. Add in some Gemma Teller flavor on behalf of Sons of Anarchy‘s Katey Sagal, and you’ve got one heck of a spicy protagonist. Sagal stars as a Brockovich-inspired in this series that’s executive produced both by Brockovich and Grey’s Anatomy showrunner Krista Vernoff.

GLAAD Media Awards (Hulu, 10:00pm EST) — Many former Glee cast members (including Matthew Morrison, Jacob Artist, Chris Colfer, Darren Criss, Vanessa Lengies, Jane Lynch, Kevin McHale, Heather Morris, Alex Newell, Amber Riley, and more) will reunite to pay tribute to Santana Lopez, the character of the late Naya Rivera who came out as lesbian one decade ago. Glee guest star Demi Lovato will also be on hand.

Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (NBC, 9:00pm EST) — Olivia (Mariska Hargitay) and Fin (Ice-T) welcomed back Elliot Stabler (Chris Meloni) last week. This week, the duo switches back toward putting sex offenders behind bars while jousting with an incensed neighborhood watch group.

Law & Order: Organized Crime (NBC, 10:00pm EST) — Here’s that full-on Stabler Time that I mentioned. This week, Stabler is on the hunt for his wife’s killers, all after that other killing at the carousel. He’s also learning to work with Bell and two other unfamiliar faces on the same task force while attempting to connect other crimes to their case.

Clarice (CBS, 10:00pm EST) — Clarice and Ardelia are diving into a cold case that’s almost too disturbing to describe here (actually, it is). Meanwhile, Clarice is burdened with other knowledge.

In case you missed these recent picks:

John Wayne Gacy: Devil In Disguise (Peacock miniseries) — The NBCU streaming service is stepping into the true crime game with a six-part series about one of the most terrifying and notorious serial killers. The docuseries will contain a full-on interview with the subject from prison while presenting accounts from an ex-wife, a confidant, and other exclusive interviews. Prepare to be horrified and riveted and afraid to turn out the damn lights at night.

Made For Love (HBO Max series) — HBO Max recently struck dark-comedy gold with The Flight Attendant, and the WarnerMedia streamer is poised to do so again with Cristin Milioti maneuvering around a premise that’s even more dizzying than that of Palm Springs. Cristin stars as Hazel, and Ray Romano plays her father, who’s attempting to help her flee from a god-awful marriage with a guy (Billy Magnussen) who’s implanted a chip in her noggin, so that he can track her every move and emotion. It’s such a cynical spin on relationships, and it’s terrifying, all of it, to consider, but heck, this show will suck you into its compelling vortex. Did we mention that dad is a widower with a “synthetic partner”? Oh boy.

Creepshow: Season 2 (Shudder and AMC+ series) — The spooky anthology show returns with many, many featured players on board, including Ali Larter, C. Thomas Howell, Ted Raimi, Kevin Dillon, Anna Camp, Josh McDermitt, Adam Pally, and Ashley Laurence. Just FYI, the Marilyn Manson episode got axed following Evan Rachel Wood’s allegations against the singer.
