What to Watch Tonight – Wednesday, January 2, 2019

What To Watch Tonight?  Tonight’s choices aren’t great with most shows still in repeats but we do have some hope. Our Top Pick To Watch Tonight is Vikings. In addition, we have the season premiere of Gordon Ramsay’s 24 Hours to Hell & Back as well as all new SEAL Team and the series premiere of a new competition show show, The Masked Singer … which seems like pointless fun.  At 10pm, our nerdy selves are looking at PBS’s American Masters which is looking at DNA pioneer, James Watson.
