Skipping election coverage? Find out what else is on TV tonight
Excited for New Girl tonight? Or Happy Endings? Or New Normal? Well, prepare to be disappointed – it’s wall-to-wall election coverage, of course, which means all the usual suspects won’t be on the major networks’ air.
While I could easily write a post about why you should watch the results pour in – pundits doing their pundit thing! CNN is lighting up the Empire State Building! (Really!), finding out the next president! — for those that would rather discover the big news via a quick tweet, I’ve got you covered. I scoured the television listings and if you’re as sick of Obama/Romney as this four-year-old, try one of these programs instead.
Sons of Anarchy and Covert Affairs will have new episodes tonight at 10 on FX and USA, respectively, and for the trashy reality fans, Lifetime will show Abby’s Ultimate Dance Competition at 9 p.m. ET. For those that want to get their political history on, but in a less serious way, check out Chef Race: U.K. vs. U.S. on BBC America at 10 p.m. ET. The teams reportedly meet up in Abraham Lincoln’s hometown.
If you don’t mind the repeats, Bravo is running back-to-back Real Housewives episodes. It’s the Atlanta crew at 8 p.m. ET, followed by Beverly Hills at 9 p.m.. For more reruns, Full House is showing all night long on Nick and USA is rolling out Law and Order: SVU double header before the new Covert Affairs.
Trying to forget Lindsay Lohan’s Romney endorsement? Georgia Rule is on E!.
So yes, avoiding OhioWatch 2012 will be difficult. In addition to all the main broadcast channels, Comedy Central will air Daily Show/Colbert live at 11 p.m. ET, hopefully with news to announce.
Beyond that, a DVD of the first season of Homeland or Downton Abbey was made for nights like this.
