Monday TV Picks: ‘Bunheads’ on ABC Family
TV picks for Monday, Feb. 11, 2013, include “Bunheads” on ABC Family, “Bones” on Fox and “Mike & Molly” on CBS.
Tonight in Prime Time
As fans of her previous series (“The Gilmore Girls”) know, creator Amy Sherman-Palladino can write rapid, witty dialogue like few others. So, Monday nights have been just a little bit better with new episodes of this charmer, featuring Broadway actress Sutton Foster (pictured, center) playing a former Vegas dancer-turned-small-town ballet instructor ripping through said dialogue like she’s been doing it for years. It also doesn’t hurt to have former “Gilmore” star Kelly Bishop on hand to trade quips as Foster’s mother-in-law. Now if they could find a way to work Lauren Graham and Melissa McCarthy into the storyline, fans would be in heaven. 9 p.m. Monday on ABC Family (seattletimes.com/tvlistings).
