A select viewing guide for Tuesday, April 24
MUSIC Glee Fox, Global, 8 p.m. ET/PT Somewhere from the great beyond Whitney Houston will be watching tonight’s new episode of Fox’s splashiest series. The entire episode will pay homage to the late pop star’s music, with no less than six of her songs performed by the New Directions glee club, under the usual pointless pretext. As is his wont, series creator Ryan Murphy has kept all song specifics under close wraps, although from brief advance clips we can see the regular character Brittany (Heather Morris) and Santana (Naya Rivera) will perform a sassy remake of Ms. Houston’s song and video for How Will I Know. And while all this is going on, nice guy gleemaster Mr. Schuester (Matthew Morrison) takes one step closer to his dream wedding with Emma (Jayma Mays).
COMEDY Cougar Town ABC, CITY-TV, 8:30 p.m. ET/PT It’s an unpredictable TV animal, this Cougar Town. When the show launched in 2009, it was largely about the wide-open pastures presented to the newly-single Jules, played by ex-Friends mainstay Courtney Cox, and her kinda single best gal pals. In this third season, however, Jules has hooked up with her hunky neighbour Grayson (Josh Hopkins) – they’re getting married! – and ratings have steadily inched upward all season. Tonight, the handsome couple try to take that next big step: merging their finances.
DOCUMENTARY Frontline PBS, 9 p.m. ET/PT Four years removed from the great economic meltdown of 2008, PBS has finally assembled the definitive documentary on the crisis. Hosted by Martin Smith, the four-hour treatise, airing tonight and next Tuesday, interviews more than 70 people – economists, journalists, politicians and bankers, et al. – who were directly involved in the events leading up to the largest government bailout in U.S. history. As shown in tonight’s opening hour, the Band-Aid solution rattled the American political landscape and left the incoming president Barack Obama with a staggering debt. The program also takes sharp aim at the big banks, how they profited and how the business model that produced staggering wealth eventually had America teetering on the next Depression. This is scary stuff.
DRAMA Private Practice ABC, CITY-TV, 10 p.m. ET/PT Strangely, this show feels right on a Tuesday night. After spending six seasons as the companion piece for Grey's Anatomy on Thursdays, the show moved here last month in order for ABC to give the new political drama Scandal a run in the plum Thursday time slot. So far, ratings have stayed largely the same. And since this is a network medical drama, naturally all the best storylines are about young doctors in love, a theme that goes in both directions tonight. While the winsome Dr. Addison (Kate Walsh) is warming up to the new man in her life, Pete (Timothy Daly) and Violet (Amy Brenneman) enter counselling in hopes of salvaging their rocky relationship.
MOVIE Scar Tissue Vision, 9 p.m. ET/ 6 p.m. PT First broadcast on CBC in 2002, this touching TV-movie is based on Michael Ignatieff's 1993 novel, which was short-listed for the coveted Booker Prize. Ignatieff wrote the book after his grandmother and mother had their lives cut short by Alzheimer's disease. In keeping with the source material, the TV version casts the talented Roberta Maxwell as Mara, the mother stricken with Alzheimer’s, with Shawn Doyle and Aidan Devine as her two sons, both struggling to deal with her care as she slowly slips away. Watch for the particularly moving performance of Paul Hecht as Mara's husband, whose own world falls apart with his soul mate's illness. A powerful film.
