What’s On Tonight: Tom Hardy Goes Dark And Weird For ‘Taboo’

Taboo (FX, 10:00 p.m.) — Tom Hardy’s dark, mystic, historical drama premieres tonight on FX. The show follows James Delaney, a man who’s done terrible things and with plans of vengeance, as he returns to London to follow his father’s legacy after a ten-year stint in Africa. There are some top-notch actors involved in this — many of them from Game of Thrones — but the verdict’s still out on whether Hardy and his father, who created the series, have a hit on their hands. There’s a whole lot of weird going on in tonight’s first episode and Hardy is trying out a new accent so those two things alone warrant a watch.

New Girl (Fox, 8:00 p.m.) — Jess does Robby a solid and offers to pay his medical bill but when she finds out how much money health care costs, she loses it. Meanwhile, Winston and Schmidt help Cece get her modeling business off the ground and Reagan shows no interest in reading Nick’s new novel.
