PICK OF THE NIGHT
The Late Show With Stephen Colbert
CBS, 11:30 p.m.
Anytime frenemies Stephen Colbert and Bill O’Reilly cross paths, it always ends up being TV well worth watching. Tonight promises to be no different when the Fox News man visits Colbert’s studio once again this year. I’m sure they’ll have a lot to talk about.
CBS, 10 p.m.
Robert and Michelle King, whom you know as the people behind The Good Wife (R.I.P.!), return with another political drama, albeit a less buttoned-up one. Starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Aaron Tveit, and Tony Shalhoub, the comic thriller zings the world of Washington, D.C. politics with a plot that involves brain-eating extraterrestrial insects. Check out our review here.
Freeform, 9 p.m.
Remember the Amanda Knox trial, and how sensational all that was? This new drama is more or less based on all that, though they’re not quite saying it in those words. But, you know, come on. Take a look at the trailer here to find out more about the show.
Kardashian: The Man Who Saved O.J. Simpson
Reelz, 10 p.m.
Between the excellent 30 for 30 documentary and the also-excellent American Crime Story series, you’re probably learning a lot more than you expected about O.J. Simpson this year. But wait, there’s more: This one-hour special presentation specifically profiles Robert Kardashian’s role in the whole thing. Watch, and compare it to the David Schwimmer version.
