What to watch on Thursday, August 2...
Thursday's child "has far to go," but what about Thursday's television? Well, it has these things!
2012 Summer Olympics (Women's Gymnastics All-Around Final)
America's "Fab Five" won gold in the women's gymnastics team final earlier this week; tonight Gabby Douglas and Alexandra Raisman will compete in the all-round final in hopes of taking home medal number two. Also on in primetime: men's beach volleyball, women's rowing, and more swimming.
In the wake of last week's tragic events, Michael and Fiona reconnect while on the hunt for whoever sabotaged Michael's mission. Elsewhere, Sam agrees to help his girlfriend's son navigate a dangerous situation with a loan shark. Ugh, don't these episode synopses just seem so emotionless sometimes? How is Michael doing?
9pm & 10pm, TLC
Tired of watching athletes compete against one another in hopes of winning Olympic gold? Consider switching things up by watching brides compete against one another in hopes of winning a free honeymoon! In tonight's pair of back-to-back episodes, two different quartets of ladies will attend each other's weddings to judge everything from photo backdrops made of paper flowers to vodka snow cones. (The vodka snow cones get our vote.)
Spoiler alert: We screened this episode at Comic-Con, and it is... weird. And sticky—very, very sticky. Tune in!
The show is called Awkward. for a reason: In "What Comes First: Sex or Love?" Jenna wonders whether doing it with Jake will help clarify her feelings for him... and Matty offers to give Jake advice regarding Jenna's sex "dos and don'ts."
