MORE THAN EQUAL
On Sunday, THE EQUALIZER retained 40% of the SUPER BOWL post-game show’s total audience, well above the retention for both “24: Legacy” (29%) in 2017 and “Elementary” (33%) in 2013. This was the best post-game retention for any scripted show since the half-hour “New Girl” telecast in 2014 (40%) and best hour-long scripted retention since “Glee” in 2011 (41%). The second episode of THE EQUALIZER airs Sunday, Feb. 14 (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT).
“LOST” AND FOUND
Henry Ian Cusick and Jorge Garcia, castaways together on “Lost,” reunite when Garcia (as his “Hawaii Five-0” character Jerry Ortega) appears on this Friday’s MACGYVER at 8:00 PM, ET/PT to help the Phoenix Foundation infiltrate a terrorist cell they have been tracking.
THE SILENCE IS OVER TONIGHT
Thirty years after the classic “Silence of the Lambs” was released, Clarice Starling steps back into the spotlight tonight in the new psychological thriller CLARICE. Pour yourself a nice glass of chianti (perhaps with some fava beans?) and take a look behind the scenes with the star and co-creators of CLARICE in anticipation of the series premiere tonight at 10:00 PM, ET/PT on CBS.
EAT YOUR VEGETABLES
On tonight’s B POSITIVE at 8:30 pm ET/PT, a depressed Drew begins to question if all his sacrifices are worth it after missing Maddie’s soccer game due to dialysis:
DREW (discussing with Gina his recent doctor visit):
He thought I should be on a "healthy kidney diet."
What does that mean?
No dairy, no red meat, no salt, no potatoes, no sugar – I call it the "stay away from everything that tastes good diet."
Well, at least we can still eat my favorite vegetable. Caramel corn.
