Here’s what’s up in the world of TV for Wednesday, February 15. All times are Eastern.


Top picks

Schitt’s Creek (Pop TV, 8 p.m.): It’s a “Murder Mystery” on this week’s Schitt’s Creek, and we can only assume one thing: Catherine O’Hara’s going to wear some wonderful wigs. It’s only fair, right? “Moira agrees to attend Twyla’s murder-mystery party, but must recruit other guests or risk being the only one in attendance.” Oh yes. Catherine O’Hara’s going to wear some wonderful wigs.


Black-ish (ABC, 9:30 p.m.): In case you haven’t checked out Survivor’s Remorse, tonight’s Black-ish is determined to give you a taste of what that’s all about in abridged, network television format. “When Dre goes back to Compton for a funeral, he is reunited with his old crew and struggles with survivor’s remorse for the friends he left behind.” Ron Funches guest stars, which we’re pretty sure most people reading this will want to know about. As do Faizon Love, who previously appeared in the Black-ish season two episode “Man At Work,” and Marla Gibbs, who is… Marla damn Gibbs. Ashley Ray-Harris knows what we’re talking about.

Doubt (CBS, 10 p.m.): Doubt “stars Katherine Heigl as Sadie Ellis, a brilliant attorney at a boutique firm who starts to fall for her charismatic client, Billy Brennan (Steven Pasquale), an altruistic pediatric surgeon recently accused of murdering his girlfriend 24 years ago.” And you know what? It might not be half bad. Heigl and Pasquale star alongside Elliott Gould, Laverne Cox, and Dreama Walker (with a recurring Judith Light), so just on the cast front, Doubt has come to play. Even if Sadie Ellis isn’t really a “brilliant” attorney, since she’s falling for a possible murderer and all. Come on, Sadie.

Premieres and finales

Undeniable With Joe Buck (Audience Network, 8 p.m.): What exactly is so undeniable about the third season premiere of Undeniable With Joe Buck. Well, Pete Rose won’t be denied, as he’s this week’s interview subject.


Madiba (BET, 8 p.m.): Based on general history knowledge, you can probably guess how this all ends, but: “Mandela is finally released from prison, but his liberation does not come without cost as he is unable to reconcile his marriage. With the country in a state of contention, Mandela is the only man who can unify a divided nation.”

Navy SEALs: America’s Secret Warriors (History Channel, 8 p.m.): Tonight, History Channel ends its two-week special about what makes the Navy SEALs history’s most badass badasses: “A look at how the SEALs were instrumental in the battle of the War on Terror, where they undertook missions in Afghanistan and Iraq, and executed high-profile rescues of Captain Phillips from pirates and Jessica Buchanan in Somalia, plus the raid on Osama Bin Laden’s compound in Pakistan.” Wow, the Navy SEALs were basically born to exist in movie form.


So Cosmo (E!, 9 p.m.): So Cosmo has a new time slot, and you better get used to that change, because apparently no one at Cosmopolitan can do that: “After editor-in-chief Joanna Coles announces shocking news, the Cosmopolitan staff fear for their future.” Are they possibly in fear of a “smackwich?” They should be. Or maybe we all should be watching Don’t Trust The B— In Apartment 23

Cooks Vs. Cons (Food Network, 9 p.m.): The third season finale of Cooks Vs. Cons sees some “Macho Nachos.” Allow us to tell you what that means: “The contestants face the challenge of elevating nachos with the surprise ingredient of canned soups.” That just sounds like “Soggy Nachos” to us, but what do we know? We are neither cook nor con.


24 To Life (Lifetime Movie Network, 10 p.m.): In the second season premiere of this LMN original series, “a single mother attempts to regain her family’s trust before leaving for prison.” Then, “a former doctor tries to make amends with her teenage son before serving time.” This show is about sadness.

Hacking The Wild (Science Channel, 10 p.m.): Time to head on down to “The Black Bayou.” “Digital survivalist” Andy Quitmeyer “braves the Louisiana swamp, a deadly place packed with alligators, snacks, and dangerous predators. He rigs his bag of tech to create fresh water, gather food, and escape back to civilization.”


Bong Appétit (Viceland, 10:30 p.m.): One of Viceland’s interestingly titled series ends its first season tonight, “Smoking Sativa S’mores.” “Abdullah travels to Joshua Tree National Park, where chef Jake Francis cooks infused-pork dishes over an open flame.” Sativa and pork s’mores. You crazy for this one, Viceland.
