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


The Bachelor’s Funniest Moments  8 p.m., ABC

This should be bizarre. I think every moment of every episode ever is funny. But now we get to see what ABC and the makers of “The Bachelor” deem funny. The hour will include moments from the past 17 seasons — yes, 17 seasons — and Chris Harrison will host. Along with clips, the special will include unaired goofs.

Inside Amy Schumer  10:30 p.m., Comedy Central


Schumer has a Kewpie Doll face, but her comedy is adult, cringy, raunchy, and, often, smart. In that way, she’s a Sarah Silverman baby. Her show, a mixture of sketches and stand-up, turns mostly on gender humor. In one already aired bit, we watched women at a male version of Hooters called O’Nutters, where the waiters’ outfits show off their assets. On Tuesday night, Schumer gets a bad haircut and has a romantic encounter with Amber Tamblyn (who is married to David Cross). The sketches are stronger than the performance riffs; when they connect, they fly out of the park.
