FX's new episode of "Archer" at 10pm is one of very few highlights in tonight's TV lineup

FX's new episode of "Archer" at 10pm is one of very few highlights in tonight's TV lineup
What were some TV highlights for you last night? "Modern Family" and "Traffic Light" (which enjoyed a 75% jump in viewership) were both great, but we particularly enjoyed FX's "Justified" which had a storyline that went well beyond the principal players. In late night, it was great to see "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon" celebrate its 2nd anniversary with a "Late Night Snack" flavor of ice cream scooped up by the actual Ben and Jerry. Fallon went on to do a hilarious Charlie Sheen impression, unveiling a new cologne called Winning. Jimmy Kimmel also had a great time with Nick Offerman as they both looked at photos of cats that looked like Offerman's "Parks and Recreation" character, Ron Swanson.
Tonight's offerings are a bit more sparse, with "Man vs. Wild" (see clip at end of post) and "Archer" as the probably high points of the evening. We'd like to remind you that we'll be actively covering PaleyFest2011 beginning tomorrow night with "The Walking Dead" panel. If you're a fan of TV we urge you tosee what they're offering and get some tickets to see the writers and creators that bring you some of the best television has to offer.
