What To Watch: City (Winter 2016)

City had a really promising lineup in the fall, but that fell apart, and it looks like they’ve all but given up. You’re just getting a bunch of shows that you should watch but don’t, two new shows you shouldn’t and won’t and a hell of a lot of Modern Family and 2 Broke Girls. Those two new shows are from Fox, but they’re so forgettable that they’re barely worth the mention.

Monday Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday Sunday
7 Modern Family Sunnyside
7:30 Modern Family Sunnyside
8 The Middle/The Muppets New Girl Two Broke Girls Mr. D Undateable The Mindy Project
8:30 The Middle Grandfathered Mike & Molly Life in Pieces Modern Family Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Surviving Life
9 Scorpion Brooklyn Nine-Nine Modern Family Mom Hell’s Kitchen Family Guy
9:30 The Grinder Black-ish 2 Broke Girls Bordertown
10 2 Broke Girls Cyberwar/Best of Vice Canada
10:30 Two and a Half Men Best of Vice Canada

New Series:  

Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Surviving Life — Sundays at 8:30 p.m. 

Once you get over how much the name of the show sounds a lot like Nickelodeon’s old series Ned’s Declassified School Survival Guide retooled for people out of college, you’ll find out that Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Surviving Life is…. I’m sorry, I just can’t get over how much the names of the two shows are alike. It’s not just me, right?

Bordertown — Sundays at 9:30 p.m.

Once you get the bad taste of Ned’s Declassified School Survival Guide Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Surviving Life out of your mouth, it’s time for yet another Seth MacFarlane travesty. Judging by the number of dislikes the official trailer got on YouTube, I’m guessing I’m far from the only one who isn’t really feeling this show.
