What to watch on Monday, April 9...
Okie doke. It's Monday, but let's not dwell. There are some decent things on TV, and there are some things that might've fallen off the back of a garbage truck. That's just television, you know? Let's sort through the good and bad together:
SEASON 2 FINALE, 9pm, Syfy
Tonight's Season 2 finale involves mothers, murder, and occasionally both. First Sally must deal with the reappearance of her own mother. Plus Josh decides he's gonna have to murder Ray. And Aidan decides it's time to murder Mother. See? Themes! Anyway, after all the mayhem, be sure to come back and read Tim's presumably killer write-up of what went down.
In "The Bump in the Road," an extreme couponer winds up getting real killed by an 18-wheeler and Special Agent Genny Shaw assists the team in identifying the remains. Also Brennan returns from a (surprisingly quick?) maternity leave. Plus Cam disapproves of her daughter's relationship with the intern. Moms (who are forensic detectives), am I right?
2 Broke Girls
Whoops, this sounds ill-advised: The ladies decide to earn some cash by participating in a clinical drug trial! But don't worry, it's for a good cause, they're just trying to help Caroline's dad. But yeah. Nope! Asking for trouble, guys.
Tonight the gang deals with a potential copycat killing similar to those done by a notorious serial killer known as the Trashman. But Max thinks it's the same person and he'll have to divulge personal details of his childhood in order to convince the rest of the team. It's unclear if the forced viewing of a slideshow will be involved.
SERIES PREMIERE, 10pm, TLC
Mama's Boys of the Bronx
Here is that reality show you've been requesting, the one about full-grown men in New York who live with their overbearing mamas. In tonight's premiere, one of the mama's boys will contemplate proposing to his girlfriend while two of the other mama's boys will introduce their respective ladies to their mamas. (Hopefully you haven't just assumed these people are Italian because that would be a stereotype-based assumption!)
I can't tell you how to live your life. I just have to trust that if you knew there was a special on television all about real-life murderous children, you'd seriously consider watching it. I mean, come on. Murderous children! If this isn't a good way to unwind after a trying Monday, then what is? (Don't say Dancing with the Stars. Don't ever say Dancing with the Stars.) Killer kids!
