Potts Picks: Today’s Best TV

(ALL TIMES ET)

10:30PM | A&E
Storage Wars
– Yeeeeeep! Though Dave Hester‘s trademark bid call makes me cringe, I’m happy that the network’s finally rolling out new episodes of the addictive Storage Wars. What is it that makes other people’s abandoned junk so fascinating? Probably the same reason we all stop at a yard sale: somewhere, in the irrational part of our brains, we all have those fantasies of finding a real Picasso for a dollar. Anyhoo, here’s hoping Darrell, Barry, Brandi and Jarrod manage to outbid the pot-stirring storage locker hound more often than not in the new batch of installments ahead.

8PM | FOX
American Idol
– The top 12 perform songs from the year they were born.

Justified
– It’s easily one of the series’ best episodes so far, which is saying a lot. Raylan’s papa gets arrested again, Raylan’s services are requested for a state task force that’s investigating Harlan County crime and Boyd …. ah, Boyd. He gets mixed up in a payroll robbery scheme at the mine, and the consequences for some are tragic. The consequences for Boyd portrayer Walton Goggins, meanwhile, should be an Emmy.

10PM | BRAVO
