Here’s what’s happening in the world of television for Sunday, March 24. All times are Eastern.
The Simpsons (Fox, 8 p.m.): The description of “Bart Vs. Itchy & Scratchy” was quite enough to get us on board, even before we got to the note that the guest cast included Awkwafina and Nicole Byer (and while Fox’s notice didn’t mention Chelsea Peretti, Simpsons executive producer Matt Selman did, as is right, just, and wise.) In the episode, Krusty’s all-female reboot of Itchy and Scratchy enrages Bart and his dude friends, who stage a boycott. But life comes at you fast, and before you know it, Bart has allied with “a woke group of sixth-grade girls who commit crimes against patriarchy.” Sounds interesting, right?
Yeah, we’re watching the holy shit out of that. Dennis Perkins, well-accustomed to writing about Megan Amram’s writing, stands ready to recap.
Into The Badlands (AMC, 10:25 p.m.): “Chamber Of The Scorpion” marks the beginning of the end for Into The Badlands, AMC’s post-apocalyptic martial arts drama. We want to enjoy the terrific fight scenes, exemplary costuming, and always sort of surprising presence of Nick Frost while we still can, meaning we’ll be tuning into this special post-Walking Dead premiere, as well as the next episode, which will air tomorrow in its usual time slot.
