Potts Picks: Today’s Best TV

(ALL TIMES ET)

8PM | TLC – SERIES PREMIERE
The Unpoppables – Yes, it’s a show about balloon people, but not the clowns who make balloon dogs at kiddie birthday parties. Katie, Addi and Brian, the artists – and they are most definitely artists – of New Balloon Art, travel around the country fashioning spectacular balloon sculptures for events big and even bigger. Giant balloon Eiffel Towers, wearable balloon dresses and balloon sofas you can actually sit on are just a few of their most impressive works. In fact, the New Balloon Art crew’s handiwork is so compelling, I’d bet the other cable networks already have copycat series in the works.

The redo of the iconic kiddie series returns for its third season with a continuing emphasis on educating the 6-9-year-old set on STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics), via cool music videos, animation and celeb guests like Alan Cumming, Sherrod Small, Jenny Slate and Good Charlotte brothers Benji and Joel Madden.

9PM | TLC
Cake Boss – In back-to-back episodes, Buddy and the Carlo’s crew make a shark cake, a giant hot air balloon cake and work with four adorable junior bakers from the Make-A-Wish Foundation.

9PM | FOX – SERIES PREMIERE
The Chicago Code – From The Shield creator Shawn Ryan, this cop drama stars Jennifer Beals as new Chicago police superintendent Teresa Colvin, who recruits her former partner, Jarek Wysocki (Brotherhood‘s Jason Clarke), to help her with her new corruption task force. Her first target: city alderman Ronin Gibbons (Delroy Lindo).
