What to watch on Wednesday, July 31...
8pm, ABC Family
Melissa & Joey
Mel and Joe become a surprise smash when they co-host a local morning show in “Family Feud.” But their banter spills a few too many details about Lennox and Ryder’s private lives, and nothing irks today’s youths more than broadcasting their personal information willy-nilly.
Friends and relatives inspire the dishes in this week’s mystery box challenge. Then the elimination round pairs off the remaining contestants for a tag-team sushi showdown.
Franklin & Bash
In “Out of the Blue,” the boys must defend a piece of meteor against government seizure. Okay, yes, it’s a meteorite that damaged a client’s business here on Earth. But I prefer my phrasing, if only to open the door to a Franklin & Bash: Space Bros animated spin-off, where they battle interstellar tyranny and stodgy galactic courts.
Hank aids a Type-A Wall Streeter-cum-spin instructor, while Divya works with a candymaker who finds sudden success to be fraught with obstacles. But which of these subjects is, as the episode title declares, “Chock Full O’Nuts”? Also: Paige’s big purchase rankles Evan, Divya and Jeremiah learn to cohabitate, and Killer Keller’s negotiating style pushes Hank’s buttons.
Connor’s totally bored with Dani’s new material and wants her to pick up where she left off with her first V3 client instead. Elsewhere in “Bringing the Heat,” Nico performs recon at V3 for the FBI, and TK has a rough time adjusting to life without Sheera.
In “Maria of the Desert,” Marco takes an offbeat approach that flies right in the face of protocol. In Juarez, a potent player crosses the border.
10pm, Comedy Central
Little Bo-Bender has lost his rear fender, and doesn’t know where to sight it. Through the universe he’ll roam in “Assie Come Home,” so he can resume telling people to bite it.
The Challenge: Rivals II
Am I only highlighting this episode because it’s called “Mortuusequusphobia,” which Wikipedia claims is the fear of ketchup? If you have to ask, it’s like you don’t even know me by now.
10pm, TV Land
Hot in Cleveland
On the rebound in “The Fixer,” Melanie finds solace in the arms of a new suitor, a former flame, and a bottle of 80 proof. In less vice-tinged to-dos, film class ignites a competitive streak in Joy and Elka, while Victoria retains a shyster on her fiance’s behalf.
10:30pm, TV Land
Holly and Phil’s plan to seek raises from their boss doesn’t go quite as expected in “Take This Job and Shove It.” Meanwhile, Stuart struggles with the Dentist’s Code when he dates a British woman with unsightly chompers.
