Showtime takes center stage this evening, with the premiere of a new British dramedy from the producers of "Fleabag." It's also one of its biggest hits returning for a tenth season, making it the longest running show in the network's history. We've also got one of the lighter, sillier awards shows this evening, as well as a historical was epic for those who are not swayed by the glamor of the red carpet.
PICK OF THE DAY:
"Shameless" (Showtime) at 9:00 pm EST
The Gallaghers – possibly the most dysfunctional family in all of Chicago – return as "Shameless" begins its tenth season on Showtime. nach Emmy Rossum's departure from the show at the end of last season, the Gallagher kids want to get to life without Fiona, their elder sister and surrogate mother. Of course, they're still bound to get the same hijinks and low-level cons as always. After all, they are still the offspring of Frank Gallagher (William H. Macy), the man who raised gripping to an Olympic sport.
WHAT'S PREMIERING ?:
"Back to Life" (Showtime) at 10:00 PM EST
As a network, Showtime is on safest ground when sticking to the territory of dramedies about grimy yet lovable people doing reprehensible things. So "Back to life," an 18-year stint, feels like it's just fit in. From co-writers Laura Solon and Daisy Haggard (who is stars) and the producers of "Fleabag," "Back to Life" is brimming with potential.
"E! People's Choice Awards "(E!) At 9:00 PM EST
The People's Choice Awards are on tonight, one of the rare award ceremonies where everyday moviegoers do not come to complain about being an elitist and out of touch. While it's best to be "Best Movie Star" rather than "Best Actor" is telling, it serves as a reminder that awards season is about to begin in earnest. So, this is your opportunity to reward all those blockbusters that would have been included in the Academy's '' most successful '' Best Popular Movie category, so be it.
MOVIES ON TV:
"Braveheart" (BBC America) at 8:00 PM EST
"The King" Netflix has made a lot of people in the mood for a good old-fashioned pre-battle speech. And what better way to scratch it than with "Braveheart?" Sure, Mel Gibson's reputation has been blighted since "Braveheart" which originally released, and the film takes more than its fair share of liberties with the narrative of Scottish national hero, William Wallace. But when it comes to period epics, "Braveheart" is pretty much the gold standard.
