Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!
Something pretty awesome is happening tonight – and no, I’m definitely not talking the New Hampshire primary, although that factors in. The Conners will be airing a special live episode on both the East & West Coast broadcasts. New coverage of the first-in-the-nation primary will be incorporated into the story in real time as the results roll in during the evening.
In the live episode, titled, “Live from Lanford,” Mark is watching the results of the primary for a school report with Harris who is apathetic to the electoral process and believes money’s influence in politics means real change is impossible. The rest of the Conners share their differing takes on why they all think everyone should vote, including their working-class perspective that you may have to vote for a candidate you don’t love but one that will “screw you the least.” All of this happens against the backdrop of romance when Louise gets an opportunity that might send her away from Lanford, prompting the family to interfere in Dan’s complicated relationship with her by throwing Louise a surprise going-away party, creating major new tensions between Dan and his daughters.
This is, by far, the closest thing I’ve seen on TV that fits with my view on politics in the last decade. And the Conners are a family very much like a lot of American families in the middle of the country in their income bracket. So it’ll be very, very interesting to see how they handle it – both just the whole live aspect and the fact that it will probably change at least somewhat from one airing to the other as results come in and are verified. I’m hoping that ABC.com or Hulu or somewhere will have both airings available after so everyone can see them both!
Don’t miss the fun tonight on ABC at 8/7c.
I’ll also be watching NCIS, Chopped, FBI, & FBI: Most Wanted.
