Monday on TV: ‘Partners’ is awful; ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ is dumb

FX, which gives us pretty much nothing but good dramas, gives us yet another bad comedy tonight. Partners (10 and 10:30 p.m., FX) is a lame, unfunny sitcom about a pair of odd couple lawyers (Kelsey Grammer, Martin Lawrence).

For more about just how bad it is, look here.

Also tonight, it’s the premiere of Bachelor in Paradise (7 p.m., ABC/Ch. 4), the latest dumb show in this dumb franchise.

There are a couple of Utahns involved — Michelle Money, who made herself infamous for her behavior on Season 16 of "The Bachelor" and for revealing in an interview that she had an affair with former Utah Jazz player Carlos Boozer - while he was still married.

The other Utahn is Brooks Forester, who was on Season 9 of "The Bachelorette." Desiree fell for him, but he left the show because he did not return her affections.
