Fall TV Week Three: Sunday – Elliott Gould Lives!

I’m about to head out of town for work for two days, so may or may not get this week’s TV stuff up tomorrow — if not tomorrow, then Tuesday, for sure! If not Tuesday, than certainly Wednesday!  But here’s what’s up tonight, anyway.

bobsburgersBob’s Burgers — 7:30pm — FOX.  I only discovered this show last year and I hardly ever watch it, yet I ADORE it.  I really ought to do something about that; that don’t make no sense.  This is a really clever cartoon series about a family that owns a burger shop.  It’s very, very smart and funny.  Previous seasons are all on Netflix Streaming, so check it out!  And maybe I’ll get Ebola soon and have enough time to get all the way caught up to a current season.  (Too soon with the Ebola humor?  Yeah, okay.  Fair enough, sorry.)

Homeland — 9pm — Showtime.  I watched seasons 1 and 2 of this and then never went on from there.  What season are they up to? I don’t even know.  I liked season 1 a lot, but not as much season 2, when the lady character went all bananas.  And then I heard the dude dies anyway, so, what is this show still up to?  Maybe I’ll find out some day.  BUT NOT TODAY.

mulaneyMulaney — 9:30pm — FOX.  I don’t know much about John Mulaney, but apparently he’s funny enough to warrant his own show.  I’ve read this show is a little too Seinfeld-y for some people’s tastes, but I liked Seinfeld well enough, and besides this show has Elliott Gould in it as a “wacky neighbor.”  I can think of few things Gould could do better than that.  Also: Martin Short, though he can be a bit hit or miss for me, depending on the intensity of his mania.  Going to check this one out just to see if it sticks.  You?
