Angie Tribeca (9 p.m., TBS) – TBS tries something new with this comedy series from Steve Carell starring Rashida Jones: they’ll air all ten episodes of the first season back-to-back five times in a row. The 25-hour marathon follows Det. Tribeca (Jones) and her coworkers, which includes K-9 officer, Jagger. It’s in the same family of a “Police Squad”-type spoof. Jones’ real life parents, Quincy Jones and Peggy Lipton, play her parents in a scene on the show.
