Dirk Langeveld is filling in for Elissa Bass while she is on vacation. She will resume this column on Aug. 28.
Saving Hope, 9 p.m., NBC
I’ve seen this described as a supernatural medical drama. Maybe because it sounds like a zombie version of ER.
Top Spot, 9:30 p.m., Travel
A tour of three New Orleans hotels: a “historic celebrity haunt” in the French Quarter, one on Bourbon Street and another in the Garden District.
Louie, 10:30 p.m., FX
Elissa says she won’t watch this under any circumstances, while plenty of critics are hailing it as one of the best shows on TV. I still haven’t checked out the free episode that came with the Archer first season DVD, so I’ll have to reserve judgment.
