It is a very short schedule this week. I know that has little to do with me, but I still feel kind of bad about it. Is there too little on, or is my bar for schedule status too high? Well, I put miniature golf on the schedule, so you make the call.
Here’s what to watch on TV this week!
8-10 America Ninja Warrior – Oklahoma City qualifiers! I think this will be the new regular ANW night going forward, and also the night it’s aired every other season. But they spent a couple weeks pretending it was going to be Wednesday and I don’t know who to trust anymore.
10-10:30 Drunk History – SEASON PREMIERE! Hey, new season! One of the stories this week is about Phineas Gage, who is a really interesting tale and also the basis for a Venture Bros. villain.
10:30-11 The Detour – SEASON PREMIERE! I fear the sun is setting on TBS’ lineup of original comedy, but at least we get another season to hang out with the Parkers and their misadventures.
8-9 The Amazing Race – The teams transport eggs by bicycle in the Netherlands. No kidding, I made a pun about cracking and immediately deleted it because we’re all better than this.
8-9 MasterChef – It’s the first team challenge as they cater a MasterChef-themed pool party. Gotta say, theming the party after the show that it’s actually on is maybe a little lazy. It’s like have a bar mitzvah-themed bar mitzvah.
10-10:30 Archer:1999 – Archer and the team encounter a cosmic beast and then a life coach. I known which one Archer will hate more!
8-9 Holey Moley – SERIES PREMIERE! Guys? This is an extreme miniature golf show hosted by Steph Curry and Rob Riggle. We can agree that we’re all going to watch this, right?
10-10:30 Baskets – Chip picks up Pedialyte. I like how this show does its vague listing where it cites one minor event in the episode that is literally true but doesn’t indicate what the episode is about.
8-9 Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. – According to the listing, this is a FitzSimmons episode and that sound you heard just now was recapper extraordinaire just totally checking out.
8-10 BattleBots – It’s robot fighting time! I don’t have any more information than that, the stated theme of the show. Man, I am just flying through this schedule!
8-9:20 Luther – I believe this is the season finale and there’s no information available. Boy, this schedule is not very helpful.
9-10:05 Fear the Walking Dead – Charlie finds a friend but the rescue mission hits a snag. That last part could be safely assumed because they hit nothing but snags. I love that this show is about people who are just trying to help, but they’re hilariously bad at it. They’re the Doom Patrol of zombie survivalists.
