AdventureBomb! Wait, is that what it’s called?

Illustration for article titled AdventureBomb! Wait, is that what it’s called?

Here’s what’s up in the world of TV for Monday, January 11. All times are Eastern.

Top pick

Adventure Time (Cartoon Network, 7:30 p.m.): “Angel Face” is the beginning of an AdventureBomb (is that what it’s called?!?), as well as the 17th episode of this show’s seventh season! What happens in it? “BMO convinces his friends to join him in a live action cowboy role-playing game.” That and “Angel Face” aren’t really a case of point A to point B, now are they? But leave it to Oliver Sava to figure out a connection—he’s pretty good at his job.

Elsewhere in TV Club

You want to be pissed off? Then check out this Inventory on “18 true-life injustices that will make your blood boil.” Thanks a lot, Making A Murderer. Then there’s… another reason to say “thanks a lot, Making A Murder.” Marah Eakin’s For Our Consideration on White House petitions has got you covered with that.


What else is on?

Lego Nexo Knights (Cartoon Network, 5:30 p.m.): Legooooooooooooooooos!! And wow—Legos are getting hella dark. “The series describes the adventures of five young knights: Clay, Aaron, Lance, Macy, and Axl who protect Knighton from Jestro, the Book of Monsters and their army of lava monsters. They also help the Monarchy, Merlok (sorcerer) and Robin.” Lava monsters! Yeah! So what is happening in “The Book Of Monsters” (part one and part two)? Well, there’s “buzzing” and a “magic blast.” See? Hella dark.


Make It Pop (Nickelodeon, 7 p.m.): “One of Sun Hi’s relatives visits during Family Week; Jodi grapples with the consequences of the calamity the she, Caleb and Alex caused at Hye Jung’s store; Jared does magic for Corki’s father in attempt to impress him.” This is… a show. Six episodes deep, even. Make It Pop!

The Bachelor / Bachelor Live (ABC, 8 / 10 p.m.): “Big-Screen Stars Kevin Hart and Ice Cube Plan a Hilarious One-on-One Date for Ben and Caila.” You say “The Bachelor,” we say “desperate for ratings!” (This is not what we would ever want in an actual one-on-one date. Bring back Lev Realness.)


Fashion Police (E!, 8 p.m.): Awards season means Fashion Police finally has a purpose again. As such, we get the seventh season premiere of Fashion Police, dedicated to the 2016 Golden Globe Awards.

Kids Baking Championship (Food Network, 8 p.m.): “Eclairs Gone Wild”? Guys. This is a show about children. Come on now.


Superstore (NBC, 8 p.m.): “AMY INTRODUCES HER DAUGHTER TO JONAH AND ASKS FOR A FAVOR- ISABELLA DAY AND NATASHA LEGGERO GUEST STAR.” We’re assuming the favor has something to do with Natasha Leggero. Sex favors? Hey, let’s save that for Another Period.

Love & Hip Hop (VH1, 8 p.m.): “TBA!” “TBA!” “TBA!”

Telenovela (NBC, 8:30 p.m.): “THE RIVALS THE CAST OF ANA’S SHOW COMES FACE TO FACE WITH THE CAST OF THEIR RIVAL SHOW WHILE BUILDING A HOME FOR CHARITY.” There’s really no reason for “rival(s)” to be in this synopsis twice, but we’ll allow it.


Vanderpump Rules (Bravo, 9 p.m.): “Stassi has been sniffing around SUR, but Lisa Vanderpump wants her to keep her distance.” Is she going to stab her or something? That’s what this synopsis makes it sound like, honestly.

The Biggest Loser (NBC, 9 / 10 p.m.): Two episodes. No actual programming on TB right now. This week, “contestants face their biggest temptation.” In case you were wondering, that’s all in the category of food. Spoiler: The Biggest Loser contestants have problems with food. “Host Bob Harper greets contestants with the news that their challenge this week involves pulling food trucks.” See? We told you.


Hit The Floor (VH1, 9 p.m.): What is this? An “Instant Replay” of Hit The Floor?!? Apparently it’s what we need before we start season three next week.

House Hunters / House Hunters International (HGTV, 10 / 10:30 p.m.): International is “Finding French Flair In Lyon, France,” apparently. But what is OG House Hunters (not to be confused with Teen Mom OG)? We’ll just let it surprise you.


Teen Mom OG (MTV, 10 / 11 p.m.): Hey, this is still a show! Yeah, it hasn’t ended since last week. Crazy, right?

Independent Lens (PBS, 10 p.m.): This latest Independent Lens is “Autism In Love,” and it asks several questions: “Do you have people in your own family with autism? Does this film change your perspective about people on the autism spectrum? What does this film teach us about love?” Remember those questions for when you watch the episode.


Watch What Happens Live (Bravo, 11 p.m.): “Scheana Shay And TBD” These are people! We think! Who the hell is “Scheana Shay”? Ah, something something Vanderpump Rules. … Again, we ask: Who the hell is “Scheana Shay”?

Maid In Manhattan (Lifetime, 8 p.m.) / What A Girl Wants (TNT, 8 p.m.): Jennifer Lopez. Amanda Bynes. This is a choice you must make if you don’t have a DVR.


Is that movie My Teacher’s Wife on again?

Yes, three times! Yep.

Sports, sports, all type of sports

Barclays Under-21 Premier League Soccer: U-21: Tottenham vs. Chelsea (NBC Sports, 2:30 p.m.)


College Basketball: Bucknell at Lehigh (CBS Sports, 7:30 p.m.)

College Football Playoff National Championship: Alabama vs. Clemson (ESPN, 8:30 p.m.)


CFP Film Room: College Football Playoff National Championship (ESPN2, 8:30 p.m.): Wait, this and the past thing are the same sports show, right?

In case you missed it

The Revenant: Won the Golden Globes. Yup. Sorry.
