What to Watch Tonight: Anger Management, Louie, and Awkward

  • 47comments

What to watch on Thursday, June 28...

Well, it's the day you've all been waiting for... Charlie Sheen's triumphant return to primetime television. I guess there are two ways of looking at it: It either pays to be a train-wreck, or it pays to be the guy network who hired the clown to dance. Either way, somebody's getting paid and it's not me. And that hurts. Here's your Watch to Watch lineup for the evening:

SERIES PREMIERE, 9pm, FX
Anger Management
Charlie Sheen plays a guy named Charlie who gets sentenced to anger management classes after he has an unfortunate run-in with his ex-wife's new boyfriend. Ironically, a woman from Charlie's past shows up in his group therapy sessions. Oh, karma, you are a fickle beast.

9pm, USA
Burn Notice
A lot seems to be going down in tonight's "Last Rites." First, Pearce and Michael team up to hunt for the man who killed her fiance, but their mission hits a snag when they realize he's an asset to the CIA. In Fiona's corner, we've got her plans to investigate the man who tried to off her as well as a meet-and-greet with a notorious smuggler. What could go wrong there?

SERIES PREMIERE, 10pm, Food
Chef Wanted With Anne Burrell
This is brand new television, people! Or maybe it's recycled television with a new twist, I don't know, but either way Chef Anne Burrell has taken it upon herself to help restaurants find their perfect chefs—by pitting applicants against each other for all the world to see! That's some interview process. Tonight she works with Mucho Ultima, a restaurant in Manhattan Beach, California.

SEASON 2 PREMIERE, 10:30pm, MTV
Awkward
Tonight's episode is called "Resolutions," which seems... well, awkward... for a season premiere, but I guess it makes sense to tie up all of the loose ends lying around after last season's finale. In it, Jake offers Jenna a gift without realizing it would inspire her to question whether or not she really wants to leave things where they are with Matty. All the while, Jenna takes it upon herself to spread some holiday cheer—doesn't she know it's summer?!

SEASON 3 PREMIERE, 10:30pm, FX
Louie
Louis C.K. is back, everyone! We should be way more excited about this than the whole Charlie Sheen thing, for the record. I don't know much about tonight's episode other than the fact that it's called "Something Is Wrong" and involves Louie having a bad day. Par for the course, really, but I'm sure it will be magical, nontheless.
