On TV Tonight, Thursday, 02/20/14: Rake, Under the Gunn and More

TV Equals Midseason 2014 Thursday

Our Picks
 

The Taste – 8pm ABC
I know it’s getting harder and harder to imagine, but one day soon The Olympics will be over and television will return to us. Glorious new programming with actors doing actorly things. Until then I’m going to watch The Taste finale and see if any of the chefs can make tripe look remotely appetizing.

Rake – 9pm Fox
I have mixed feelings about this show, but Greg Kinnear is charming and this is literally the only new scripted program on TV tonight. Plus, he’s representing a bigamist, that should be good for at least one Big Love joke.

Portlandia – 10pm IFC
This isn’t the season premiere of Portlandia (we could only be so lucky); it is the preview of the season premiere of Portlandia. That gives us exactly 15 minutes of hilarity to look forward to.

8 PM – 9 PM

American Idol – 8pm Fox

9 PM – 10 PM

Under the Gunn – 9pm Lifetime
