Tuesday TV: ‘Citizen Rose’ vs. POTUS

rose-mcgowan1Rose McGowan, one of the more prominent prominent members of the #MeToo movement, had begin speaking out about her abuse at the hands of Harvey Weinstein before the New York Times had published its reports.

And she’s been taping herself the past three years, leading up to her moment as a spokeswoman for outrage. It’s been put together in a new series, “Citizen Rose” (E!, 8 p.m.), that begins tonight with a two hour special.

“I am down with calling this reality, because it actually is,” she said at the TV Critics Association winter press tour. “This is reality, it’s mine. And I’m OK with that. I’m not going to shy away from it.” [More of my reporting from that event can be found here].

Sexual harassment will likely not be a topic raised in The State of the Union (ABC, CBS, NBC, PBS, Fox, CNN, MSNBC, Fox News, CSPAN, 8 p.m.) delivered to Congress.

Cable news coverage begins as early as 5 p.m. And comedy responses ought to be the best of all on special live editions of “The Daily Show with Trevor Noah” (Comedy Central, 11 p.m.) and “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” (CBS, 11:35 pm.), which provides a good countdown to the speech with a preview of its new Showtime offshoot, “Our Cartoon President” (YouTube, streaming).
