What to watch on Monday, August 8...
Well, that weekend lasted about ten minutes. Did the planet just spin faster or something? I'm not a scientist, I'm just saying that time flew, you know? Anyway, let's slow things back down with some medium-great television!
SEASON 2 PREMIERE, 8pm, ABC
Not since the Deepwater Horizon oil spill has there been a body of water so polluted as the Bachelor Pad swimming pool. Tune in tonight for the Season 2 premiere of this Bachelor spin-off that completely drops any pretense of romance or class. Included in the latest menagerie of orange hardbodies are platinum dunce Vienna Girardi, evil himbo Jake Pavelka, and friendly android Ames, who was only just recently cast out of Bachelorette Ashley's love life. Team Ames!
At tonight's Winter Formal, Scott worries that turning into a werewolf might ruin his rented tux (I'm guessing), but also he'll definitely be stressing about Allison finally finding out about his secret. It's not clear how a towel scene will fit into all of this, but I'm sure Teen Wolf will figure it out.
The team's on the hunt for an artifact known as Joshua's Trumpet, which has been missing for several generations and now suddenly poses a threat to a packed baseball stadium. It's like a mystical vuvuzela, basically.
ORIGINAL MOVIE, 9pm, HBO
HBO unleashes yet another killer documentary, this one about real-life superheroes. No, not the ones who dress up in costumes and harass families on Hollywood Boulevard; this is more like a reality version of the vigilantes in Kick Ass. Sounds great!
SERIES PREMIERE, 9pm, Style
Tia & Tamera
After years of waiting patiently, it's finally Tia and Tamera Mowry's turn to have their own reality series. In tonight's premiere Tia deals with being pregnant, and Tamera deals with planning a wedding. There's no word yet on how Taj Mowry might factor into all of this, and that's where the suspense comes in!
8pm, ABC Family
The Secret Life of the American Teenager
Whoops, sorry Ben, but Adrian has had a change of heart about you! Plus Ricky is like, "Peace out." Also tons of teens and their secrets.
