It’s a summer schedule which means things are pretty light. BUT! Not only do we get Season Two of GLOW on Friday, but we get the return of Big Brother so I can’t complain. Watch both and be more like me!
Here’s what to watch on TV this week!
9-11 American Ninja Warrior – It’s the Philadelphia Qualifiers! Only those who survive the Wrench Fight will move on to the Regionals!
10-10:30 Drunk History – This episode focuses on heists, including a handyman who stole the Mona Lisa and the bankrobbing Santa Bandits. Weird Al Yankovic is appearing in this one, and all of this seems delightful.
10-11 Humans – Mia comes face to face with somebody from her past and Joe faces tragedy. This will be a surprising change of pace from the never ending good times that this show usually brings!
8-10 Big Brother – SEASON PREMIERE! Guys? It’s time. My guiltiest of pleasures returns for the summer. A bunch of people spend three months in a house and I gradually turn on all of them. It is pure joy and agony and it will consume me. And we’ll be recapping the whole mess, so goodbye social life!
8-9 MasterChef – The chefs have to make a dish involving walnuts. My grandfather was deathly allergic to walnuts and I’m afraid I inherited said allergy and so I avoid them. If it turns out that walnuts are awesome, I’m going to feel like quite the dork.
9-10 Gordon Ramsay’s 24 Hours to Hell and Back – As much as I enjoy the work of one Mr. Ramsay, I didn’t like when he made the owner fire an employee. I mean, she seemed to be a disaster, but Gordon’s going to be there for one full day and probably shouldn’t have control over staffing.
9-10 Big Brother – Oh yeah, two episodes in two nights. That’s the Big Brother buzz I’ve been missing. Who will be my new summer crush? And will I eventually discover that they’re terrible people? History says the answer to that second question is “yes”.
10:30-11 Detroiters – Tim thinks he might be too hard on Sam’s girlfriends. Or maybe Tim is right and nobody is good enough for Sam.
8-9 BattleBots – Robots are going to fight. Usually I’d be a lot more excited about that, but this is a very special Friday and I have other things on my mind. What could it be? Well…
GLOW – Yes! Season Two of one of my favorite shows is here and I’m going to binge the whole darn thing like a goof. This is where I remind you that yes, Alison Brie is the star and I would watch it anyway, but it’s actually a very good show that deserves your time either way. The early reviews of this season are fantastic, and I can’t wait!
8-9 Big Brother – I assume this is a nomination episode, but the first week is kind of screwy in regards to scheduling.
10-11 Preacher – Jesse attempts to forge an alliance with a familiar adversary. Man, who isn’t his adversary? Dude doesn’t really have friends at this point. Tulip and Cassidy still kind of like him, but that’s it.
