— Politics makes strange bedfellows, but it also makes fantastic comedy. It’s the midterm elections Tuesday, and Comedy Central’s resident newsmen Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert will be following all the action live starting at 11 p.m.
Two chances to see Matt Bomer in action this week, AFTER THE JUMP …
— Fans of Hiyao Miyazaki’s gorgeous Studio Ghibli animations and Adventure Time’s fun-for-all-ages approach to cartoons should not miss Over the Garden Wall. The new miniseries has a whimsical Miyazaki vibe, and its creator, Patrick McHale, worked on Adventure Time. The first installment debuts tonight at 7 p.m. on Cartoon Network and new episodes air nightly this week. Elijah Wood and Melanie Lynskey lend their vocal talent.
— Matt Bomer makes his American Horror Story debut in this week’s twisted episode, titled “Pink Cupcakes.” Between Dandy Mott’s (Finn Wittrock) deranged antics and Stanley (Denis O’Hare)’s sinister intentions, Jupiter doesn’t seem to be any safer even if there is one less monsterous murderer around. Will Bomer make it out alive? Find out Wednesday at 10 p.m. Eastern on FX.
— That’s not your only chance to catch Bomer in action this week. The final season of White Collar makes its debut Thursday at 9 p.m. Eastern on USA.
— If you thought this season’s Real Housewives of New Jersey hit new lows with the Giudice’s legal drama, that’s nothing compared to what’s going down on Real Housewives of Atlanta. The most-watched Real Housewives franchise returns Sunday at 8 p.m. on Bravo. The cameras not only chronicle Phaedra and Apollo’s crumbling marriage, but also Apollo’s failure to report back to prison while he rampages through their home. Kandi, Kenya and, of course, the queen of all housewives NeNe Leakes also return.
