AP Bio 3

From coming-of-age shows to K-Drama, tonight, there is TV for many tastes. Choose from shows like NBC’s Glenn Howerton and Patton Oswalt-led “A.P. Bio,” the return of a celebrated CBS’ sitcom, and a new Netflix Original sure to please those in the mood for a little romance. Tune in tonight for shows you just won’t want to miss!

Pick of the Day

“A.P. Bio” (NBC) at 8:30 p.m. ET

“A.P. Bio” (NBC)

Study up, “A.P. Bio” is on tonight for the seventh episode of the season. The former Harvard philosophy professor turned wayward high school biology teacher Jack (Glenn Howerton) always manages to have a little too much fun. In last week’s episode, the saga with Marvin comes to a touching conclusion. Tune in tonight to find out what Whitlock High School has in store.

What’s Premiering?

“My First First Love” (Netflix)

The K-Drama show will be premiering on Netflix today. It follows a group of college students as they move into their friend Yoon Tae-oh’s (Ji Soo) home. They put friendships to the test, and romance begins to bud as well. Hence the title, my “First First Love.” The Netflix Original will add to the streaming platform’s growing presence of original K-Dramas, including “Kingdom” and “Persona.” The show seems to promise heartfelt laughs, plenty of romance, and platonic love as well. Although Netflix hasn’t given much in terms of promotional material, but it looks like promising TV.

What’s Returning?

“Life in Pieces” (CBS) at 8:31 p.m. ET and 9:30 p.m. ET

“Life in Pieces” (CBS)

Not one, but two! Season 4 is kicking off tonight with a bang. The CBS comedy returns with two episodes, one at 8:31 p.m. ET, and another at 9:31 p.m. ET, with a new episode of “Mom” sandwiched in between. The sitcom follows the trials and tribulations of the different generations of the LA-based Short family. It stars James Brolin, Colin Hanks, Dianne Wiest, Betsy Brandt, Zoe Lister-Jones and Thomas Sadoski. From next week onward, the regular time slot will be 9:30 p.m. ET.

Movies & Specials On TV

“Elf” (2003), dir. Jon Favreau

Spring has sprung, and yet Nickelodeon has gifted us with the Will Ferrell/Zooey Deschanel holiday classic “Elf.” It may not be the holiday season, but the inimitable comedy “Elf” will certainly provide plenty of belly laughs and cheer. Favreau’s directing turns up the wit and charm of the film, and the cast simply radiates joy. Particularly Ferrell, who is unafraid to go to the extra mile to get the best shot. This film has become classic viewing in many households during the holidays. Why not watch in April? Just try not to eat the already-been-chewed gum that Elf (Will Ferrell) mistakes for actual gum drops. Tune into Nickelodeon at 8 p.m. ET. 

“Caddyshack” (1980), dir. Harold Ramis
  • “Caddyshack” needs little introduction. The Bill Murray classic remains a classic for a reason, not to count the infinity of films and shows that were inspired, at least in some way, by “Caddyshack.” Netflix’s “Russian Doll” comes to mind. It is one of Murray breakout, and signature, performances of his career. The sharp, writhing, the existential ennui of the film, the stellar performances. “Caddyshack” deserves a viewing. Or two, or three, or four…you get the idea. Catch it on POP at 7 p.m. ET.
