What to watch on Monday, August 11...
SERIES PREMIERE, 8pm, TV Land
First-time host Mayim Bialik and veteran Peter Funt helm the latest reboot of the seven-decade-old franchise, in which hidden cameras capture genial pranks played on ordinary folks. New episodes will also air tomorrow, Wednesday, and Thursday night at 8pm, before the series settles into a regular Tuesday night time slot.
Whose Line Is It Anyway?
Guest-star Padma Lakshmi drops by to thoughtfully critique whatever putrescent concoction Ryan and Colin whip up in “Helping Hands.” Guest-comic Heather Anne Campbell has a rather boffo quiche recipe she’d like some feedback on, while we’re all here.
8pm, ABC Family
Switched at Birth
Senior prom queen Bay has misgivings about attending the dance at all after a draconian dress code is dropped. Meanwhile in “The Girl on the Cliff,” Regina, Kathryn, and John take tough measures of their own when they learn about Daphne’s troublemaking streak; and Tank lends a hand to Toby’s DJ business.
9pm, Disney XD
Mabel and her snobby rival Pacifica go toe-to-toe on the putt-putt course in “The Golf War.” With caddie Waddles in Mabel’s corner, I fail to see how she can possibly lose.
9pm, ABC Family
In “Leaky Faucets,” a trip to a Mexican street festival is marred by troubling run-ins for Callie and Mariana. Elsewhere, Mike and Ana try to make amends for past transgressions.
In “Zoo Story,” a string of disappearances of young women sparks a turf war between Major Crimes and the Special Operations Bureau. Pro tip to the folks at the Special Operations Bureau: Don’t get into a tussle with the department the show is named after. You’re not coming out on the sunny side of that one.
SEASON 1 FINALE, 10pm, TNT
Murder in the First
The Kevin Neyers murder takes center stage in “Blunt the Edge,” as Terry and Hildy uncover shocking secrets. And I mean, like, super-shocking, you guys. Like, we probably should have put “shocking” in big bold letters. I’m just saying, if you have a heart condition, you may not want to watch this episode.
Under the Dome
Barbie delves deeper into the tunnel in “Going Home,” where he stumbles upon a strange new world filled with mystery and possibility. Oh, and also C.H.U.D.s. Just a crapload of C.H.U.D.s.
April discovers the identity of her stalker: Why, it was Old Man McGillicuddy, the grizzled groundskeeper! And he would’ve gotten away with it if it weren’t for those meddling Mistresses. Elsewhere in “Charades,” Toni’s ulterior motives come to light—with consequences for Savi and Dom—and Harry throws Joss off her game before she meets Scott’s family.
Scott’s cunning plan to draw out the Benefactor leads to danger in “Time of Death.” Shirtless danger, Col. Jessup? On this show, Lt. Kaffee, is there any other kind?
