What to Watch Tonight: Dominion's Season 1 Finale and the Debuts of Garfunkel and Oates, Black Jesus, and 7 Deadly Sins


What to watch on Thursday, August 7...


7pm, Cartoon Network
Adventure Time
The apparently ironically named Peace Master goes after the Candy Kingdom’s leading citizens in “Nemesis.” Then in “The Suitor,” another interloper sets his sights on Princess Bubblegum in an entirely different way.


8pm, Syfy
Defiance
With New York threatened by a terrorist attack in “Slouching Towards Bethlehem,” Nolan must channel his inner Jack Bauer and interrogate a possible spy for the Votanis Collective.


SEASON 1 FINALE, 9pm, Syfy
Dominion
The 90-minute “Beware Those Closest to You” closes the season with a key revelation that sets Alex and Michael against each other. Elsewhere, Claire and William tie the knot, General Riesen kisses Vega goodbye, and Gabriel apparently waves the white flag.


9pm, USA
Rush
Rush joins his stepmother for a lunch that leads down an unexpected path in “We Are Family.” Is there a chance said path doesn’t go through Illicit Hookup City? Probably not a huge one, no.


9pm, ABC
Rookie Blue
The team probes a suspicious home invasion in “Exit Strategy.” In dicier developments, Tracy accidentally bungles a raid and Chris is bedeviled by his addiction.


9pm, Fox
Gang Related
As the Metas get to the bottom of Salazar’s demise, Ryan encourages Javier to cut a deal with the D.A. in “Almadena.” Elsewhere, Jessica spills the beans about Ryan to Ellis, and Daniel finds his star on the rise with Los Angelicos.


9pm & 10pm, Discovery
Mythbusters
“Laws of Attraction” examines clichés about courtship, possibly with the highly scientific help of the OKCupid laboratory team. Then in “Traffic Tricks,” the gang tries to solve car-related congestion conundrums by testing the efficiency of roundabouts, lane-changing, and more.


9pm, NBC
Welcome to Sweden
Language barriers prevent Bruce from gelling with Emma’s circle of friends in “Fitting In / Vänner,” leading Emma to wonder if he’s making a real effort to adapt to Swedish life. In less tongue-tied transpirings, Bruce deals with a bombshell from his parents and an odd development in his friendship with Hassan.


9pm, Sundance
Rectify
Daniel bites the bullet and asks for assistance in “The Great Destroyer,” because after four hours it was pretty clear he was not getting that hunny pot off his head by himself. Meanwhile, the Talbot house is riven by surprising news.


9:30pm, NBC
Working the Engels
Jimmy enjoys a romp with an eccentric neighbor in “Meet Irene Horowitz,” while Jenna tries to woo a high-class client (Scott Thompson) who was introduced to the Engels by the family’s own lawyer (Eugene Levy).


SERIES PREMIERE, 10pm, IFC
Garfunkel & Oates
Riki Lindhome and Kate Micucci star in this series about the comedic music duo’s various misadventures. “The Fadeaway” kicks things off with Kate auditioning for an uncharacteristic movie role alongside Sir Ben Kingsley, while Riki hopes to rebound from a drab relationship by dating a fellow comedian.


10pm, Sundance
The Honorable Woman
“The Unfaithful Husband” finds an MI6 agent digging into Nessa’s past and learning more about her kidnapping in Gaza eight years prior. More embarrassingly, he also finds a Class of ‘95 Yearbook where she quoted a Toad the Wet Sprocket lyric under her picture.


10pm, FX
Married
Faced with an overdue orthodontist bill in “Uncool,” Russ and Lina have no choice but to become sticks-in-the-mud. Sadly, turning uncool is a fact of growing up we must all deal with. Well, except for those of us who were never cool in the first place.


10pm, USA
Satisfaction
Neil polishes his public perception in “...Through Self-Discovery,” while Grace pulls the trigger on a rash decision thanks to mounting pressure at work.


10:30pm, FX
You’re the Worst
In “What Normal People Do,” Gretchen demands that Jimmy come over to her place, which turns out to be just a hair less well-kept than, say, the Waldorf Astoria.


MINISERIES PREMIERE, 11pm, Showtime
7 Deadly Sins
Morgan Spurlock puts his documentary-style spin on tales that illustrate the sinister septet (presumably without stuffing Gwyneth Paltrow’s head in a box). Each episode will focus on a different sin, with “Gluttony” up first.


SERIES PREMIERE, 11pm, Cartoon Network
Black Jesus
This live-action comedy from The Boondocks creator Aaron McGruder follows Nazareth’s most famous carpenter as he goes about his life and mission in present-day Compton, California. The opener, “Smokin’, Drinkin’, and Chillin’,” finds Jesus tagging along with his pals on a drug buy.

Im watching Rizzoli & Isles, and I just cant find any sympathy for Rizzoli running around in the field preggers and arrogant. Overall this weeks episode was not impressive and all over the place.

When I'm actually home, yes. However I am doing sound for a play at the moment, and when I got back from that I just got online to see whom was eliminated.
