What to Watch Tonight: Pretty Little Liars, the Season 2 Premiere of The Jesselnik Offensive, and the Series Premiere of Drunk History


What to watch on Tuesday, July 9...


8pm, Fox
So You Think You Can Dance
Dancing days are here again for the 18 remaining contestants. Summer evenings grow. They got their flower, they got their power, but after tonight’s elimination they’ll have two fewer competitors.


8pm, ABC Family
Pretty Little Liars
If y’all don’t vote “Gamma Zeta Die!” (or "Omega Sigma Die!" depending on which ABC Family source you're reading) as Episode Title of the Week, I will at the very least give it a Hart to Hart Memorial Award for Achievement in Goofball ‘70s Murder Mystery Titling. (And trust me, fitting all that on the plaque is going to cost TV.com a pretty penny.) Anyway, as you might imagine, Spencer and Emily hit up a college sorority party in this week's installment. Back in Rosewood, Hanna wigs out after making a wig-worthy discovery among her mom’s possessions, and A’s latest sortie sparks an argument between Aria and Mike.


SEASON 2 FINALE, 8:30pm, NBC
Betty White’s Off Their Rockers
Betty is joined by her old WJM-Minneapolis coworker Ed Asner for a pair of sketches poking bawdy fun at modern-day courtship and whatnot. Pranks rounding out the finale include dentures being dunked in someone’s coffee, a woman’s quest to snap an X-rated pic of herself, and the reveal of the most popular viewer-submitted gags.


9pm, ABC Family
Twisted
The townsfolk are rent asunder by the question of whether to let Danny attend the upcoming Fall Festival in “The Fest and the Furious, ” while on the sleuthing front, Jo and Lacey each suspect the incriminating necklace has a more complex tale to tell. Meanwhile, Jo drifts away from Rico as she becomes closer to Danny.


9pm, TNT
Rizzoli & Isles
An uninvited guest casts a pall over TJ’s christening—because that guest is a dead body discovered in the church. Elsewhere in “But I Am a Good Girl,” Tommy’s custody tangle nearly provokes Jane to take extreme measures, and the department simmers under the specter of budget cuts.


10pm, TNT
Perception
Pierce suspects that a string of mind-boggling murders are the handiwork of a crusader set on raising awareness of inattentional blindness. Clearly “Blindness” is attempting a gritty reboot of "The More You Know."


10pm, BET
The Game
Chardonnay hopes to keep her camaraderie with Tasha under wraps in “I’m Not Kelly Pitts,” as the lines between Jason’s on-field and off-field personalities blur. Meanwhile, Keira tries to mend fences with Blue.


SERIES PREMIERE, 10pm, Comedy Central
Drunk History
Ale-addled reenactors put the past through its pie-eyed paces in this expansion of the popular Funny or Die series. The opener, “Washington, D.C.,” relives the investigate exploits of Woodward and Bernstein, dramatizes the fraternal feud between Edward and John Wilkes Booth, and reminds us all of the epic White House tête-à-tête between Richard Nixon and Elvis Presley. Bob Odenkirk, Jack Black, Jack McBrayer, and Dave Grohl are among the performers.


SEASON 2 PREMIERE, 10:30pm, Comedy Central
The Jeselnik Offensive
Anthony Jeselnik returns with his wry and ribald roundup of the week’s pop-culture detritus, and tonight he's joined by Jim Norton and recent occupant of this very time slot Amy Schumer.


LATE-NITE:
– Mary-Louise Parker, Breckin Meyer, and Portugal. The Man on Conan, 11pm, TBS
– Dane Cook, Nev Schulman, and Matt Nathanson on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, 11:35pm, NBC
– Adam Sandler and Joseph Arthur on Late Show with David Letterman, 11:35pm, CBS
– Kevin Bacon, Diane Kruger, and the Bacon Brothers on Jimmy Kimmel Live, 11:35pm, ABC
– David Spade, Kris Jenner, Mudhoney, and Preservation Hall Jazz Band on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, 12:37am, NBC

Nice callback to The Mary Tyler Moore Show castmembers. Still ain't gonna get me to watch "Off Their Rockers" though. Drunk History seems like a funny idea, but I actually cannot stand drunk people, so I'm conflicted. Tim says Paula Abdul is guest-judging on SYTYCD tonight, so I'm watching it because that sounds hilarowesome.
