Critic’s corner: What’s on TV tonight



By Sarah Rodman

Screen Actors Guild Awards
8 p.m., TNT/TBS

As the title implies, this kudo-cast, now in its 19th year, is for, by, and about actors. In fact, that’s what they call the trophy: the actor. Another element that sets this back-patter apart is the fact that it recognizes teamwork by handing out awards to entire casts. For film, that means the ensembles from “Argo,” “Silver Linings Playbook,” “Lincoln,” “Les Misérables,” and “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” will duke it out. My money’s on “Argo,” since Hollywood often can’t resist celebrating itself. On the small screen, my vote would be for “Downton Abbey” over “Breaking Bad,” “Mad Men,” “Boardwalk Empire,” and “Homeland.” They’re all terrific shows chock- full of master thespians, but both the upstairs and downstairs contingents of “Downton” really do interact as a group quite frequently — think the large dinner sequences — and always manage to crackle.

We loved him in the short-lived “Bent” and in his current arc on “New Girl,” and now Chestnut Hill native David Walton comes home in this Boston-set Hallmark Hall of Fame twist on “Pygmalion.”
