Monday Night Television

Critic’s corner: What’s on TV tonight

Vanderpump Rules 9 p.m., Bravo

What can I say. I love the name Vanderpump. It’s seriously too good, like out of “The Flintstones,” or “Archer.” The new reality spinoff follows Lisa Vanderpump (center), the British breakout star from “The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” as she works with the staff dramas at her restaurant. Maybe if loyal fans are lucky some of the other “housewives” will make the scene.


The Mob Doctor 9 p.m., Channel 25

This title I don’t love. Every time I see it, I hear “Rock Lobster” — not a bad song, but still, hard to focus with it on in the background of your brain. The series ends Monday night, as Fox burns off the last of the new episodes. This show was a forced idea from the start, as it tried to mingle medical tropes with mob tropes. It was trope-a-dopic. Pictured (from left): Jesse Lee Soffer, Floriana Lima, and Jordana Spiro.
