What to Watch Tonight: Dallas's Season Finale, Big Brother, and TLC's Here Comes Honey Boo Boo

What to watch on Wednesday, August 8...

It's Wednesday! What does that even mean?! It means we've got a number of TV shows each begging for your undivided attention. Ultimately, you decide which show to watch—which sort of gives you the power here, doesn't it? Accept your fate as a TV viewer deity. It's the only way. Here is your television line-up for the night:

8pm, CBS
Big Brother
Will and Frank are on the chopping block tonight, but there's no telling who will go home until the Power of Veto competition is complete. If Danielle has her way, it'll be Frank who gets booted, but if I had my way, Frank would stay behind and haunt Danielle for the rest of the season. Girl's gotta live with her consequences! (And we need our fair share of drama).

SEASON 1 FINALE, 9pm, TNT
Dallas
In tonight's season finale, "Revelations," long buried secrets are brought to the surface as the past comes back to haunt the Ewing family, but a medical crisis will force the family to come together in spite of all of it. Also, Elena and Christopher finally start to wise up, realizing that even those closest to them could be holding back on who they really are. Rich people problems, amiright?

10pm, TLC
Here Comes Honey Boo Boo
Oh em gee. Lock your doors, kids, she's coming. It's the moment we've all been dreading—the ultimate train wreck crossing the line into child exploitation. Young Alana first caught viewers' attention on Toddlers & Tiaras as the outspoken, hyper-confident contestant who nicknamed herself the "Honey Boo Boo." Now she's starring in her very own TLC reality series, which aims to delve into the six year-old's life with her family in rural Georgia. If you can't look away, you might as well watch it.

10pm, MTV
The Real World: St. Thomas
Tonight's awkwardly titled episode, "No Shirt, Boat Shoes, No Sanity" should have just been called "A Shit Ton of Fights." First Trey gets peeved because Laura turns on her flirt with some rando guy. Then Marie and Swift get tangled in a blow out over something equally as ridiculous. And finally, Robb and Marie turn up the tension when they both invite alternate love interests to visit them in St. Thomas. Um, so if studying reality stars' stink-eye expressions is your thing, you will totally love this episode.

10pm, TV Land
The Exes
I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that in tonight's "How Holly Got Her Groove Back," Holly gets her groove back. It's just a hunch. I don't have a whole lot to go on, but I have a feeling this journey to groove city is going to be entertaining, so maybe just take my word for it and watch.

Tonight I'll be watching Big Brother and last nights episode of The Glee Project. I watch the Olympics everyday so that's a given, as well as Jeopardy.



I'm a little confused as to why this list is incomplete a lot of days.. I hope this problem is solved before fall comes and we have TONS of new episodes and new shows starting!



The preview for Matthew Perry's new show is tonight although I think all the previews this month is stupid!! I would prefer to wait till September and be able to watch a new episode each week, rather than watch a new episode now and then have to wait a whole month for the next one. Lol maybe that's just me? I don't know..

I'll be watching Matthew Perry's new show, Go On. Which is going to air right after the Olympics. Why isn't it listed on this page? Seriously, I'm beginning to think this website is just for reality shows.

Hey C. Killian, I know you're having a tough time of writing this what with it being Summer, but could you please re-read what you've suggested as "highlights" for tonight and then explain to me why you didn't just write "Go out." instead? Seriously, this one should be a two word article.

EDITORS: Futurama is new, Comedy Central, 10pm, and certainly better than anything on the choices on this list, it should be included at least in the All New Episodes list.



I'll be watching:

Futurama

The Exes

Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson (even if it is pretaped by a month, it's still technically a new episode because they pretaped a few weeks' worth of episodes while they move into the new studio)

Melissa and Joey and Baby Daddy. Stupid ABC family doesn't put those online after they premiere anymore.

Dallas, Damages and Go On.

Dallas was always great with the season finale episodes and you know there's going to be a cliffhanger. They made the season finales with the famous cliffhangers, so I'm really looking forward to it.

As for Damages, this season has been great and it's the last one (you'd think they would include it).

I'm only going to watch Go On because I want it do well. It's just kind of sad that his projects don't do well, so I'm willing to give him a chance.

I can't believe that you are telling people to watch "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo." Please, folks, don't watch this show and don't support this ABUSE!

I 100% agree. At least there's no Fall Olympics to ruin tv when all the premieres are happening.
