With the Republican nomination race all but sewn up, here are 5 things to watch tonight.
1. Cougar Town (8:30 ABC)
Why watch: If you love nature shows, this is one for you. Cougars are sleek cats with keen eyes and a devastating first bite. They also run very fast. In their natural habitats they…oh wait, wrong cougars.
2. American Experience: The Crash of 1929 (8:00 PBS)
Why watch: Why indeed? Nothing to see here. Move along citizens.
3. Frontline: Money, Power and Wall Street (9:00 PBS)
Why watch: Really PBS? A double bill? Are you just baiting the Republicans to cut all of your funding when they take power next year? What’s next; Bert and Ernie Occupy Sesame Street?
4. Frozen Planet: The Ends of the Earth ( 9:00 Animal Planet DVR Alert!)
Why watch: Here is the ultimate relaxation program for the GOPer who’s come home after voting. The show talks about changing habitats, polar extremes and the warming trends that are affecting wildlife without mentioning the causes! It’s guilt free climate change! When Vanessa Berlowitz, the series producer, said in an interview. that scientific theories “would have undermined the strength of an objective documentary, and would then have become utilized by people with political agendas,” you know that Animal Planet is going to get a zillion dollars in the next budget go-round.
5. Edge of War: Saddam vs. The Ayatollah (10:00 Military Channel)
Why watch: Are you kidding? We love wrestling matches. Especially ones that incite 8-year wars between really bad guys. In this oldie but goodie, the US supports Saddam, but only so we can beat the crap out of him in 20 years. Ahhh, the Reagan-Bush-(Blank)-Bush years.
