Aug. 4 TV Picks: ‘Partners’ series premiere on FX
TV picks for Monday, Aug. 4, 2014, include “Partners” on FX, “Major Crimes” on TNT and “Longmire” on A&E.
How about this for a new comic duo and premise? Kelsey Grammer (“Frasier”) and Martin Lawrence (“Big Momma’s House”) play odd-couple lawyers ordered to partner up. Now, if the writing can live up to the promising coupling, we could have a hit. Series premiere, 9 p.m. Monday, Aug. 4, on FX (seattletimes.com/tvlistings).
