We asked the star, who plays a CIA agent on USA’s summer spy drama Covert Affairs (Tuesdays, 10 p.m.), what he’s watching on TV.

The Rachel Maddow Show
(MSNBC, weeknights, 9 p.m.)
She’s smart, she makes compelling arguments, and she listens. I love her interviews on the show. And I like her glasses.

Real Time with Bill Maher
(HBO, Fridays, 10 p.m.)

First of all, he’s really funny, and he’s really smart. I love that he says things that you kind of want to say but you couldn’t really get away with.

A&E, Mondays, 9 p.m.

It’s actually really good. I don’t like to watch it before bed — it’s just a really intense show. That’s one of those shows my wife is obsessed with that I get roped into.
