  • 24comments

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.
