The secret of the Fuller House: one of them is a MURDERER! Okay, it’s Kimmy, the network insisted it be Kimmy, you get no points for guessing Kimmy.


The Voice returns for season 10, and at this point you kind of have to assume that Adam Levine and Blake Shelton are going to hold on to their rotating judges’ chairs until the Apocalypse. (CTV2, 8 p.m.)


It’s Super Tuesday, which is not Superman-related, sadly, but rather the outcome of 13 separate U.S. state primaries and caucuses for the Republican and Democratic candidacies for President, which usually (but not always), determines the presidential candidates. Donald Trump will most likely clean up on the Republican side and Hillary Clinton should basically lock down the Democratic nomination. So we guess you don’t have to watch, then. Well done, us! (CNN from 8 p.m. onwards, U.S. major networks at 10 p.m.)

Marvel’s Agent Carter reaches its second season finale, and probably its series finale because the ratings have not been good. For this, we blame you. Yes, you. In the corner there. (CTV, 9 p.m.)

Angie Tribeca is, improbably, more or less a remake of the classic parody/farce cop sitcom Sledge Hammer! except with Rashida Jones in the lead/title role. If you like Rashida Jones (and who doesn’t?) you should enjoy this: she is backed by a ridiculously deep supporting cast and hordes of great guest stars, and the writing is consistently sharp. (Comedy Network, 10:30 p.m.)


Big Brother Canada returns for its fourth season, meaning it only needs one more season to tie Canadian Idol as the longest-lived Canadian knockoff of an American reality show, and realistically it should break that record in the next couple of years because it’s cheaper to produce. (Global, 9 p.m.)

Gaycation: where Ellen Page and Ian Daniel go to various countries to experience their LGBTQ culture – the positives and negatives alike. It’s really very good. (Bio, 10 p.m.)


The Family—a political thriller where Joan Allen rises to power using her dead son as a political prop, but 10 years later the son turns out not to be dead after all! OoooooOOOOOOOOoooooOOOOOOoooooOOOOoooo! (ABC, 9 p.m.)


Megamind is one of those mid-tier animated releases that gets forgotten after a couple of years (hey, remember Monsters v. Aliens? Planet 51?), and is good enough for a moderate two hours of entertainment—it’s predictable but the jokes are good and the characters are likeable, and there are so many cartoons that can’t even hit those basic marks. (YTV, 7:30 p.m.)

The Weekend

TLC finds a new tragic demographic to exploit in Long Lost Family, their new series about adoptees and parents who give up their children looking for the biological family they lost. The entire premise of this series makes us shudder a little. (10 p.m. Sunday)


Fuller House has been getting a lot of press over the last week as person after person watches it and says “hey, it’s not good!” Because it’s not good, and not even in a “well, the original series was cheesy so this is too” sort of way. The show is just a mess, with terrible barely-a-joke writing permeating the entire thing, wildly careening tone shifts and a total non-understanding of who its audience is and/or could be. Candace Cameron Bure’s dead-eyed staring that masquerades as acting doesn’t help matters any either. Andrea Barber and Jodie Sweetin both deserve to be in a proper teevee show, though. (Netflix)
