What To Watch Tonight – Sunday, January 27, 2019

What To Watch Tonight? With excitement (and not a little trepidation), we will be sitting down to watch RENT on Fox, the latest Live musical broadcast to come to network TV.  We love this show so much, we’re hoping Fox doesn’t fuck it up. If musicals aren’t for you, you have Supergirl, True Detective, Outlander, Counterpart, and Crashing . What are you watching?

Not on our list tonight but perhaps of interest, the 25th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards will be airing on TBS all night. The SAGs will be hosted by Megan Mullally,  and Alan Alda will receive a Life Achievement Award.
