Critic’s corner: What’s on TV Tuesday night


Drunk History 10 p.m., Comedy Central

Comedy Central picked up this Web-only series, and it is airing new episodes. I kinda love ”Drunk History,” although I completely understand why some viewers might think it’s too slight and silly to watch. It’s a goof on historical reenactments on the History channel. The idea is that a drunk comic tells his or her version of a historical event, and the actors reenact that version, no matter how warped it is. Tonight’s reenactments are of Chicago-based events, including the death of Al Capone and the Haymarket Riot of 1886. Pictured: Derek Waters, Joe Lo Truglio, and Will Sasso.


Pretty Wicked Moms 11 p.m., Lifetime

Poor Lifetime. It knew it should have had “Project Runway,” so it bought it. Now, it just knows it should have the “Real Housewives” franchise, so it’s copying it. In this knockoff, six very superficial and competitive mothers live, love, and fight in Atlanta.
