On TV Tonight, Friday, 01/17/14: Shark Tank, Enlisted and More

TV Equals Schedules Fall 2013 Friday

Our Picks

Shark Tank – 9pm ABC
Shark Tank is one of the few reliably entertaining competition series on television for the simple fact that the contestants actually have to do something to get on. They invent things! Weird things destined for late night infomercials most of the time, but still things. And I enjoy watching them convince business types to invest in their whosits and whatsits. This week, for instance, someone invented a power strip that blends in with hardwood floors which is nice in theory, but would rely on proper placement lest the inventor be inundated with a thousand stubbed toe lawsuits.

Enlisted – 9:30pm Fox
Fox has tucked this little treat away on Friday nights where you would be forgiven for missing it. You would be missing out on something pretty spiffy though, as this comedy about three brothers in the same misfit military unit is funny, sweet and deserving of a much better time slot. This ids only the second episode, so you have plenty of time to catch up on the first one.

Win, Lose or Draw – 10:10 Disney Channel
I am a self-admitted game show junkie, so I’m weirdly excited to see Disney jumping into the genre by reviving an old concept and adding it celebrities from their stable of tween actors. Mostly, I’m in it for the under pressure charades style game that will no doubt result in a lot of yelling from the celebrities’ normal, desperate to win prizes teammates.
