Tonight's Best TV
A Daily Guide to Notable Shows
Season 23's last leg begins in Tokyo, with four teams ER docs Nicole and Travis, cousins and self-proclaimed ''Afghanimals'' Leo and Jamal, dating New Englanders Amy and Jason, and bickering exes Marie and Tim (a.k.a. Pinky and the No Brain) rolling through a human bowling competition and stripping down for a phone call at the bottom of a giant fishbowl. (Will it be God on the line, begging Tim to quit standing in for Marie's beloved punching bag?) Three teams then race to the million-dollar finish line in Alaska, where host Phil Keoghan's lovingly cocked eyebrow flickers in the cold. Run, y'all! Save Phil!
Emily puts the finishing touches on her plan to take down the Graysons once and for all. Poor Sharpies. If this plan works, their days on the show are numbered.
When did the story of the most dangerous couple in history become a middlebrow romance? There's nothing provocative about this biopic (concluding Dec. 9), besides the fact that it's airing on three networks. Emile Hirsch is appropriately lunkheaded as Clyde and Holliday Grainger is all breathy charm as Bonnie, but the suspense is ham-fisted (see: the slow-motion shot of Clyde's bartender stabbing ice) and the sexy scenes are silly (Bonnie sends letters to Clyde, licking the envelopes slooowly). Also, the dialogue is laughably expository: Check out the scene where they argue over calling themselves ''Clyde and Bonnie'' or ''Bonnie and Clyde.'' It's mildly entertaining, but Outlaw TV it ain't. B-
This new reality show kicks off with a Navy SEAL being captured, blindfolded, and dropped in Iceland with a Viking shield and a six-foot-tall pink teddy bear. And still, it's more fun than flying cross country with children.
