TV picks for Jan. 17: ‘Electric Dreams,’ ‘Corporate,’ ‘Gianni Versace’

January 16, 2018

Punch the clock

You may want to call in sick to work tomorrow after watching Corporate, the new sitcom that makes the office look about as inviting as a cemetery plot. Theres nothing terribly original in this latest takedown of the 9-to-5 grind, but its a better option than watching reruns of The Office.

9 p.m., Comedy Central

Fashion faux pas

The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story premieres with sky-high expectations the first season of the anthology series, The People v. O.J. Simpson, dominated the 2016 Emmys. But the decision to focus on Andrew Cunanan throughout this nine-parter makes this disappointing effort more like a Lifetime murderer-of-the week flick than awards bait.

9 p.m., FX

Dream on

If youve already gotten through the new season of Black Mirror, sample the new anthology series Philip K. Dicks Electric Dreams. Bryan Cranston, Steve Buscemi and Anna Paquin step into sci-fi adventures created by the novelist who inspired movies like Blade Runner and Minority Report.
