Thursday

Thursday is the 1-hour season finale of Ace of Cakes on Food Network at 10/9c.

Tonight is also the series premiere of The League on FX at 10:30/9:30c. Set against the backdrop of a fantasy football league, this new comedy is about friendship, marriage, parenting, and growing up… or refusing to grow up. Fantasy football provides an outlet for good-natured competition and camaraderie between friends and colleagues, but that’s not always the case. Deception, trickeration, one-upmanship and a win-at-all costs mentality are prevalent in the world of fantasy football and it’s no different in The League. The emotional tentacles of fantasy football extend to personal relationships, marriages and the workplace, all fertile ground for comedy. It stars Jon Lajoie, Katie Aselton, Mark Duplass, Nick Kroll (Sit Down Shut Up, Worst Week, I Love You Man), Paul Scheer (Human Giant, Bride Wars) & Steve Rannazzisi (Samantha Who?, Big Day).

Tonight is also a 1-hour special for The Real Housewives of Atlanta on Bravo at 10/9c.

One of tonight’s guests on The Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien, on NBC at 11:35/10:35c, is Denis Leary (Rescue Me).
