May 6 TV Picks: ‘Playing House’ on USA
TV picks for Tuesday, May 6, 2014, include the new “Playing House” on USA, “The Mindy Project” on Fox and “Trophy Wife” on ABC.
Tonight in Prime Time
The premise of this sweet new comedy finds best-friends-since-childhood Maggie and Emma (Lennon Parham and Jessica St. Clair) having to raise a baby together after a couple of major life changes. Parham and St. Clair have a warm, natural chemistry (see their previous, short-lived series “Best Friends Forever”), and it’s great to have them back. 10 p.m. Tuesday, May 6, on USA (seattletimes.com/tvlistings).
