May 13 TV Picks: the new improv show ‘Riot’ on Fox
TV picks for Tuesday, May 13, 2014, include “Riot” on Fox, “NCIS: Los Angeles” on CBS and “Trophy Wife” on ABC.
This new series looks to be an improv show with added physical challenges (including a tilted performance stage). It’s hosted by Aussie comedian Rove McManus and features a stable of regular players, but most people will tune in to see the guest stars. Tonight’s guests are Steve Carell (who also produced the show) and Andy Buckley. Series premiere, 9 p.m. Tuesday, May 13, on Fox (seattletimes.com/tvlistings).
