What’s On Tonight: The Trial Of ‘The People V. O.J. Simpson’ Begins

The People v. O.J. Simpson: American Crime Story (FX, 10 p.m.) – This series could be really terrible or really great – with Ryan Murphy, you just never know. (Although John Travolta’s involvement and the state of Sarah Paulson’s wig has us leaning more to the side of God-awful, early reviews say otherwise.) Either way, ratings will probably be big because the Kardashians are depicted in a few scenes and true-crime dramas are all the rage right now. Tune in to the premiere tonight, which begins with investigators arriving at the home of O.J. Simpson after his wife and Ronald Goldman are murdered.

The Expanse (Syfy, 10 p.m.) – The season finale sees Holden and Miller teaming up to save Eros (and themselves) in the wake of a strange emergency. We also (finally) get a bit of backstory on Julie.

Fresh Off the Boat (ABC, 8 p.m.) – Tonight Fresh Off the Boat is making history by being the first network TV show to celebrate the Chinese New Year. Unfortunately for them, 1996 was the Year of The Rat – basically the crappiest animal in the Chinese horoscope. We’ll overlook that, though, because watching the Huangs freak out over missed flights and clash with Florida’s Asian-American Association is probably going to be pretty funny, no matter what rodent their naming the year after.

Hollywood Game Night (NBC, 8 p.m.) – It’s sports night as a couple of former Olympians, a pair of ex-NFL players, a Monday Night Football anchor and a CBS sports journalist show they have absolutely no chill when it comes to playing drinking games on national television.

New Girl (Fox, 8 p.m.) – Cece recruits Winston to go wedding dress shopping because her MOH is still MIA and Nick contemplates donating some of his sperm to his cousin’s wife – the old-fashioned way.

Super Bowl’s Greatest Commercials 2016 (CBS, 8 p.m.) — Boomer Esiason and Katharine McPhee are hosting a countdown of the 50 best Super Bowl commercials – expect those Budweiser Clydesdales and insurance babies to make the list.

The Flash (CW, 8 p.m.) – Barry and Wells team up to close the breaches, but a meta-human, who’s earned the nickname Tar Pit thanks to his ability to transform into liquid asphalt at will, screws up their plans.

Grandfathered (Fox, 8:30 p.m.) – The girls go bar-hopping in L.A. while Jimmy does his best to prove he doesn’t care what women think by accompanying the boys on their day trip to a Korean Spa.
