On TV Tonight, Sunday, 01/05/14: Downton Abbey, The Mentalist and More

TV Equals Schedules Fall 2013 Sunday

Our Picks

The Simpsons – 8pm FOX
The long-awaited Judd Apatow episode of The Simpsons airs tonight. The subject: illegal downloading. Not exactly the most interesting of subjects for The Simpsons to cover, but Apatow is bringing along a slew of awesome actors to guest voice including Paul Rudd, Seth Rogen, Leslie Mann, Will Arnett, Channing Tatum and Judas Priest’s Rob Halford. The part where the notoriously slothful Homer finds himself banned from all the theaters in Springfield sounds promising too.

Downton Abbey – 9pm PBS *Check local listings.
Downton Abbey is back! Someone throw confetti and then call Mr. Carson to come hoover it up. We’re flashing six months post-Matthew and Mary will be in full on mourning mode, while Branson has taken a dislike to the nanny (surely, that is shorthand for they will hook up later this season, right?), but most importantly Edith will be rocking stunning ’20s era dresses.

The Mentalist – 10pm CBS
Jane has a date. It is not with Lisbon. However, it is work related, so there’s no need to panic. Yet.
