A Gifted Man, 8 p.m., CBS
A reader emailed me last week after I said that series star Patrick Wilson reminds me of Laura Linney in man-drag. She said, and I quote, “Patrick Wilson looks and acts a lot like Paul Newman (the dismissive turning away) and the ghost looks and acts a lot like Meryl Streep. It's an awful show--dumb stories, obvious, preachy--but you get a reincarnation of Paul Newman! Keeps me coming back now that Law and Order UK moved from Friday to Wednesday.”
Twilight, 9 p.m., FX
Who is excited for Breaking Dawn Part 1? Anyone?
My Extreme Animal Phobia, 10 p.m., Animal Planet
“Donyale fears moths; Tino is scared of lizards; Luann is afraid of birds.” So, I am afraid of really big moths. Like, Mothra-size. I am scared of all lizards and I can tell you a story about the time I was caught in a stampede of iguanas in the Turks and Caicos. And I am afraid of crows. Go ahead – you can share your fears with us.
