Lisa Marie’s Week In Television: 4/9/23 — 4/15/23

Abbott Elementary (Wednesday Night, ABC)

This week, Janine’s mom (Taraji P. Henson) made an appearance, hoping that she could get Janine to pay her phone bill.  This was a really touching and very emotional episode.  Sheryl Lee Ralph was especially moving as Barbara tried to save Janine from being taken advantage of by her mother.  While that was going on, Gregory struggled to improve his people skills and Jacob amazed everyone with his magic tricks.  “The magic doesn’t work if you lie, Melissa!”

Accused (Tuesday Night, FOX)

This week’s episode was a nicely melodramatic one, in which an angry man tried to frame his ex-wife as a drug smuggler.  To be honest, it was kind of a silly episode but it was so over-the-top that it was still enjoyable.

American Idol (Sunday and Monday Night, FOX)

Not surprisingly, I wasn’t really that happy with the Top 24.  Many of the singers seemed to be a bit generic and, after all the suffering he went through to just make it through Hollywood Week, Aden was eliminated.  I was happy that Nutsa made the top 24.  She’s a force of chaos so I hope she wins but I fear that the show’s efforts to turn her into Hollywood Week’s villain will lead to the voters punishing her.

Farmer Wants A Wife (Wednesday Night, FOX)

I was cleaning around the house while watching this week’s episode so I have to admit that I wasn’t paying the show 100% attention.  That said, the farmers still do not have wives.

Half Nelson (YouTube)

The Love Boat (Paramount Plus)

The Masters (Sunday Afternoon, CBS)

“Lisa Marie,” so many people said to me on Easter, “you’re watching golf?”

You better believe I was watching golf!  Seriously, the golf course was very relaxing to look at and I enjoyed the restrained applause of all the people watching the game.  Later that night, while rest of my family was enjoying the danger of NASCAR, I was remembering the calming day on the golf course.  As for who won the game …. well, to be honest, I don’t know who any of the golfers are, outside of Tiger Woods (who dropped out by the final round of the Masters) and that guy that Necromoonyeti doesn’t like.  But no matter!  I’m happy for whoever it was that won.

Night Court (Tuesday Night, NBC)

Dan had a chance to become a billionaire by investing in a new tech company.  Abbi ruined it for everyone.  Oh, Abbi!  Seriously, I like Melissa Rauch and I think she does about as good as anyone could with the character but, at some point, I’m going to start wondering why everyone puts up with Abbi continually screwing up their lives.

Survivor (Wednesday Night, CBS)

I wrote about this week’s episode here!  Where is Jeff Probst always trying to be so nice nowadays?  It’s weird.

Yellowjackets (Sunday Night, Showtime)

Now, I not only have to worry about the new dog but I also have to worry about Elijah Wood!  I swear, I may never recover from the anxiety that this show brings me.

  1. OK, how can you say there’s nothing to watch on TV when there is a show that can be summed up the way you did: “the farmers still do not have wives.” Oh and Mrs. Maisel is back on and brilliant so far!
