Sunday TV Guide: ‘Bob’s Burgers’ Brings Back A Not-So-Missed Character

Bob's Burgers

Bob’s Burgers is doing a Valentine’s Day themed episode tonight, and that means the show is bringing back a character you might not have missed: Gene’s ex-girlfriend Courtney Wheeler (voiced by David Wain), who comes on way too strong. He’s forced to reunite with her when they’re recruited to deliver the Wagstaff School morning announcements in “The Gene and Courtney Show,” airing at 7:30 p.m. on FOX. Below is a preview clip:

That leads into a new episode of The Simpsons, which likewise focuses on the holiday and turns its attention to supporting character Professor John Frink, whose quest to find himself a woman quickly goes awry. Meanwhile, the Simpson family visits Grampa in the Retirement Castle and “try to rescue the old folks from a drug-induced hallucination.” Sounds romantic, doesn’t it? That starts at 8 p.m. on FOX.

But Sunday primetime really belongs to the drama shows. CBS’s The Good Wife airs its first episode since the announcement that it will end this season, with Alicia (Julianna Margulies) having trouble returning to Lockhart, Agos Lee again. That’s at 9 p.m, which means it’ll go head-to-head with the return of AMC’s The Walking Dead. Amusingly, at 10 p.m., CBS’s new episode of CSI: Cyber is actually called “The Walking Dead.” It has no zombies in it, though.

And over on HBO, it’s the two-hour series premiere of Vinyl, the new 1970’s music industry drama from Martin Scorsese, Terrence Winter and Mick Jagger. Bobby Cannavale (Nurse Jackie) stars as the record label boss in a world of excess, with other cast members including Olivia Wilde (House) and Susan Heyward (Powers).

Meanwhile, ABC is trying to show off its long-running crime drama Castle by airing a new episode in at 10 p.m. “Witness for the Prosecution” airs tonight while a second new episode will air tomorrow in the show’s regular Monday 10 p.m. slot.

In unscripted programming, TNT broadcasts the 2016 NBA All-Star Game beginning at 8:30 p.m., and the game is also simulcast on sister channel TBS, while NBC airs a Tonight Show Valentine’s Day special episode at 9 p.m.
