What to watch on Tuesday, August 16...

Pretty Little Liars

This morning when you woke up, you looked at your dreamcatcher and saw THESE shows tangled in it:

Gordon Ramsey appears in 74 percent of all television shows now. THANKS, ENGLAND. Anyway, for those of you who are superfans of the one called MasterChef, how stoked are you about tonight's finale? Tune in to see the the top three contestants battle it out for the title and possibly a chance to make an appearance on any of Gordon Ramsey's other 2,200 shows.

8pm, ABC Family
Pretty Little Liars
Jason battles some image issues after Spencer and Emily call his character into question, plus Hanna attempts to bond with her future stepsister and the ever presence of "A" starts causing Emily to lose her dang mind. Whatever happened to just hanging out at chain coffee shops, teens?

11pm, MTV
As Jenna and Matty's relationship progresses to new and different stages of awkwardness, she starts wondering whether her questionable reputation is putting everything in jeopardy. Plus she gets a new stalker. Cut it out, creep!

Katie: My Beautiful Friends
Meet Katie Piper, a former British model who was disfigured by an acid attack in 2008 (!). Now meet her beautiful friends, ordinary citizens who must deal with physical challenges of their own. They include: An epileptic ballerina who was badly burned by a hot shower and a housewife whose sudden-onset facial deformities have put a strain her marriage.

ORIGINAL SPECIAL, 8pm, Animal Planet
The Gorilla Whisperer
If you like gorillas (and really, who doesn't?) tune into this thing, which is an hour-long special about WWF researcher Angelique Todd's relationships with the lowland gorillas of Central Africa, especially a particularly handsome gent named Makumba. It's not guaranteed that he'll rip a parking meter out of the ground and throw it at a cop car like in Rise of the Planet of the Apes, but with gorillas this kind of thing is always a possibility.
