What to watch on Tuesday, June 18...
So You Think You Can Dance
The top 20 twinkletoes are introduced to America. But which will be the one to feel the beat from the tambourine? The one to dance, to jive, to have the time of their life—in short, to be the dancing queen?
8pm, ABC Family
Pretty Little Liars
So. You guys. One of the storylines in “Turn of the Shoe” centers on Alison’s mom giving Hanna a parrot who blurts out family secrets. Does it even matter what else happens this week? Does it even matter what else happens on any television drama in 2013? Shut it down, everyone else. Sorry, final stretch of Breaking Bad—points for effort and all, but unless a meth-addled parrot leads Hank to the heart of Walter’s operation, you’re not topping this one.
9pm, ABC Family
In “Grief Is a Five-Letter Word,” Danny and Jo’s families gather over dinner, but the evening is fraught with tension. At school, an on-edge Lacey recoils when an old rival tries to reconnect, and the students are visited by a grief counselor. And lookee here—that counselor is played by Keiko Agena, so I guess ABC Family isn’t totally averse to employing Gilmore Girls veterans. Let’s all take this as a good omen for the return of Bunheads.
SEASON 4 FINALE, Live 9pm ET, NBC
The licensor of the most luxurious lyric-lobbing larynx is lionized—live!
The Haves and the Have Nots
Benny faces the music for mortgaging Hanna’s house in “A Woman’s Pride,” while Hanna discovers Katheryn has cancer. Meanwhile, the episode summary informs us that “David plans to put an end to his problems with Candace,” but unconscionably leaves out the addendum, “...with EXTREME PREJUDICE.”
CLIP SHOW, 10pm, MTV
Tonight's retrospective casts a wistful gaze back upon some of the series’ most hilarious, heartwarming, and cringeworthy escapades. Like that time Sadie told someone “you’re welcome,” or that time Jenna had to include a bloody clip show in her TV column because there was so little on the schedule that day.
10:30pm, Comedy Central
Inside Amy Schumer
Amy mocks a 12-year-old and spots her boyfriend mid-infidelity; place your bets now on which of those people might be sporting the titular “Clown Panties.” Or perhaps that title refers to the addiction Amy battles elsewhere in the episode; debilitating clown-panties habits represent the 34th leading cause of bankruptcy in the United States, you know.
