Thursday on TV: Utahn wrote tonight’s episode of ‘Riverdale’; Utah and USU try to advance at their tournaments

First Published      Last Updated Mar 09 2017 11:40 am

Tonight's episode of "Riverdale" (8 p.m., CW/Ch. 30) was written by Aaron Allen — a native Utahn who's building a nice career for himself as a TV writer and producer.

In the episode, a major piece of evidence is mysteriously destroyed and new rumors swirl as to who was behind Jason's murder.

And there's a great plotline when Jughead's (Cole Sprouse) father returns and it's revealed that he and Fred (Luke Perry) have some unresolved issues.

The best TV news of the week is that The CW has renewed "Riverdale" for a second season. Hurrah!

• Also today, there are a couple of men's college basketball games involving local teams. At 1 p.m. on CBSSN, it's Utah State vs. Nevada in the quarterfinals of the Mountain West tournament.

And at 3:30 p.m. on the Pac-12 Network, it's Utah vs. Cal in the quarterfinals of the Pac-12 tournament (3:30 p.m., P12N).
