What to watch on Monday, August 13...
You know what they say about Monday, the 13th? Nothing! But I don't understand that because honestly I think Mondays are WAY scarier than Fridays, so Friday being the horror industry's starlet is a little weird to me. Regardless, something is in the air tonight—tons of finales, premieres, and the return of shows that've been hibernating for the duration of the Olympics! Here's what's on TV tonight:
SERIES FINALE, 9pm, TNT
In "Last Word" a street hustler catches sight of a mysterious figure burying a woman in LA's Griffith Park, which sparks an investigation. But Brenda's fixation on Philip Stroh may threaten not only her career, but also her life. Will this series go out with a bang, or a bang?
SERIES PREMIERE, 10pm, Bravo
In today's global economy, I'm going to guess fewer people are buying high-end art, which might have something to do with why landing a job in the art world is as cut-throat as this series makes it out to seem. Though I doubt it's an entirely accurate peek into the landscape, Gallery Girls will try to give some semblance of a real-life view into the art gallery world. In "All Tomorrow's Parties," Claudia and Chantal get ready to open their own gallery, Kerri gets accepted for an internship, and Amy takes too hard to the liquor at an after-work party. Business foul!
SEASON 2 PREMIERE, 10pm, NBC
In the second season premiere, "Bad Teeth," Hank struggles to come to grips with Nick's double-life while Nick struggles to comes to grips with the return of his mother, who he thought to be dead. Meanwhile, Monroe tries his best to break Juliette out of her coma—but not without Rosalee's help, no doubt. So much to revisit!
SHARK WEEK SPECIAL, 10pm, Discovery
It's Mythbusters! It's Shark Week! It's both! In tonight's very special episode, "Jawsome Shark Special," the Mythbusters crew will discuss the top 25 shark myths of all time. I wonder what the #1 shark myth is. Could it be that they can swallow humans whole with one quick gulp? I guess we'll have to tune in to find out, because I'm pretty sure that's true.
SEASON 2 FINALE, 10pm, MTV
It's like the end of an era or something! A Season 2 era! In tonight's "Master Plan," last week's shocking murder on the lacrosse field inspires Scott to uncover Gerard's master plan as quickly as possible. But Derek wants to take matters into his own hands, looking for another way to undermine Gerard. So who will get to the big G first, assuming anyone does at all?
