What to watch on Monday, August 22...
Happy Monday! Let's each drink an entire pot of coffee and really wrestle this thing TO THE GROUND. There's tons of TV on tonight, and the cool thing about being out-of-your-mind on caffeine is that you can watch everything on fast-forward and it seems like it's in slow-motion. Give it a tryyyyyy! (Ow my head.)
SEASON 3 FINALE, 9pm, NBC
American Ninja Warrior
Although Mt. Midoriyama may sound like a delicious alcoholic beverage served in a festive novelty cup, it is actually an enormous, steel-clad nightmare jungle gym located in Japan. Previous episodes of G4's American Ninja Warrior have narrowed hundreds of athletes down to a select ten who will attempt to climb up this thing for a $500,000 sponsorship deal. If this sounds awesome to you, then congratulations, you are correct. Oh, and note that this airs on NBC (and not G4) tonight! That's big-time!
9pm, ABC Family
The Lying Game
The twin girls' flawless scheme of impersonating one another almost immediately runs into trouble when Emma begins to worry about Sutton's safety amongst the lowlifes she hangs out with. Meanwhile, Emma bonds with Ethan over their upcoming dance without knowing the full extent of his relationship to Sutton.
In tonight's episode of Swimsuits 'N Sadness, the remaining mannequins must endure a synchronized swimming "challenge," Jake and Vienna continue making and breaking friendships, Melissa gets mad about something, Holly and Michael get real, and—in a particularly heartwarming twist—the newly ousted Ames gets struck by lightning and becomes self-aware.
Myka's like, "I gotta find the dude that killed my partner!" And the rest of the team is like, "That's cool, except watch out, the killer MIGHT be linked to the Secret Service!" And then someone opens a dusty crate full of springy snakes and the president of the Illuminati is like "Gotcha!"
In television's weirdest love triangle, Nancy continues ping-ponging between her former lady cellmate and the lady cellmate's hunky brother. Meanwhile, Silas has some difficulties getting the world's greatest male model-operated drug ring off the ground.
The team looks into the baffling death of an officer's daughter and Captain Raydor focuses her internal investigation on Detective Sanchez. Meanwhile Brenda just walks around the office making sure nobody's desk drawers are open.
