Monday TV Picks: the new ‘King & Maxwell’ on TNT
TV picks for Monday, July 15, 2013, include the new “King & Maxwell” on TNT, “Cake Boss” on TLC and “Under the Dome” on CBS.
Tonight in Prime Time
‘King & Maxwell’
I’ve seen a couple of episodes of this new buddy drama starring Jon Tenney (“The Closer”) and Rebecca Romijn (“X-Men”) as former Secret Service agents turned private investigators. It’s occasionally amusing and fairly well-written, but it tries so very hard to be cute and clever. It could just be me; a friend of mine really loves this show. Are you watching? 10 p.m. Monday on TNT (seattletimes.com/tvlistings).
