What to Watch Tonight: The 2012 Republican National Convention, Grimm, and Warehouse 13

  • 23comments

What to watch on Monday, August 27...

Well I hope everybody is feeling well rested on this delightfully overcast Monday morning. If not, I hope your preparedness for the day includes a gallon-sized jug of coffee topped of with a healthy dose of raw milk for taste (the pasteurized stuff is so passé). Also, here's what's on TV tonight:

7pm, PBS, CNN, or MSNBC
The Republican National Convention
You know what they say—"Keep your friends close and your enemies closer"—so whether the Republican party is friend or foe, you have 100% stake in whatever hot button topics come up during tonight's convention. For those who aren't quite sure how these conventions work, it's four days worth of speeches and rallies in at the Tampa Bay Times Forum in Tampa, Florida. With 2,286 Republican delegates and 2,125 alternate delegates from all 50 states, the District of Columbia and five territories on top of the 15,000 media members in attendance, it's—for lack of a better word—huge. It will also give Americans some insight on how the Republican party will be preparing to ride out their half of the election campaign come November. Here's what the live schedule looks like for the next three days:

Tuesday, August 28: LIVE coverage starting at 7pm from PBS, CNN, and MSNBC.
LIVE coverage from 10pm-11pm on ABC, NBC, and CBS.

Wednesday, August 29: LIVE coverage starting at 7pm from PBS, CNN, and MSNBC.
LIVE coverage from 10pm-11pm on ABC, NBC, and CBS.

Thursday, August 30: LIVE coverage starting at 7pm from PBS, CNN, and MSNBC.
LIVE coverage from 10pm-11pm on ABC, NBC, and CBS.



9pm, TNT
Major Crimes
In "Medical Causes" the crew investigates a deadly car accident that occurred in front of a nightclub, but as the investigation digs deeper, the facts become blurrier and blurrier. Also, Raydor makes a move to contact Rusty's mom as promised, but finds it difficult to continue the search when burdensome facts come to the surface. Parental expeditions never quite go as planned, you know?

9pm, Syfy
Warehouse 13
"Fractures" get ghostly when Lewis Carroll's mirror is lifted from the warehouse: The murderous spirit of Alice Liddell is somehow set free—and what else is she to do but go on a killing spree? Notice that rhyme? It was all me.

10pm, NBC
Grimm
In "Bad Moon Rising" Nick investigates a case involving a close friend of Hank's whose daughter recently went missing. Of course, any case that Nick jumps into has more going on than meets the eye, so as he begins to discover the motives behind the case, he's driven into an even deeper crime.

10:30pm, MTV
The Inbetweeners
Since we were so pleasantly surprised with this one last week, we're deciding to feature it again! In tonight's "Sunshine Mountain" Simon nails his driver's license test and takes the gang out to an amusement park in hopes of impressing his crush, Carly. Will has other aspirations: Taking on an infamous roller coaster. Teenage misfits at an amusement park—what could be more amusing?
