Tonight, we will be reminded what conflicted, miserable lives we all led before DVR’s. Tonight, a trio of toddling young crime shows, all Seasons 3 or 4, return simul-freaking-taneously at 10-danged-o’clock, so even with dual tuners, we may still have to ask a friend to babysit one on their tuner or even to watch one online later. (Oh, modern problems.) From the folks at Omnimystery News:
First up is one of our favorite shows, White Collar, on USA Network at 10 PM (ET/PT). When the series took its [3rd] mid-season break, Mrs. Suit — as Mozzie calls her — had been kidnapped. In an episode titled “Checkmate”, Neal is forced to come clean with Peter about the hidden cache of stolen art treasures in order to save Elizabeth. Or does Neal have another plan in mind?
Over on FX Networks, also at 10 PM (ET/PT) is the third season premiere of Justified. The arrival of a dangerous new player in Lexington puts Raylan on a collision course with a sadistic Dixie Mafia hitman in an episode titled “The Gunfighter”.
Finally, on TNT — you guessed it, at 10 PM (ET/PT) — is the fourth season premiere of Southland with an episode titled “Wednesday”. Officer John Cooper returns to duty after recovering from back surgery and meets his new partner, Officer Jessica Tang (special guest star Lucy Liu), a tough and disciplined cop with her own set of baggage from working the streets.
Why the heck does every network let its toddlers stay up so late these days? It’s no wonder they’ve all turned wicked, even if we do plan to enjoy every last bit of bad behavior.
