What to Watch Tonight: The Futurama, Necessary Roughness, and Melissa & Joey Finales

  • 27comments

What to watch on Wednesday, August 29...

I'm going to start calling Wednesdays "Reality Wednesdays" because it literally feels like that's all this day has to offer, which is why I feel like I'm always featuring the same shows week after week. My apologies in advance, but here is your television line-up for the night:

SEASON FINALE, 8pm, ABC Family
Melissa & Joey
We never feature this one, but considering it's the first season finale I figure, "why not?" In "Mel Marries Joe" Mel agrees to officiate a marriage between Joe and Elena, which is happening because Joe's about to get kicked out of the country if he doesn't marry somebody STAT. Of course, my guess is that Melissa's going to have a conniption fit watching Joey walk down the isle with some other lady.

9pm, USA
Royal Pains
In "Dancing With the Devil" Hank treats a pop star who seeks out treatment in order to prep for her latest tour. Hank also meets a pediatrition—maybe a new friend? Meanwhile, Divya falls for a polo player (one of the guys from last week?) and Paige gets ready to leave for school. Ahhh, it's that time of year!

SEASON FINALE, 10pm, Comedy Central
Futurama
In the hour long season finale (aka two episodes smushed together), "31st Century Fox; Naturama," Bender becomes a target for the hunters after saving a robotic fox from their grasp. Then the crew morphs into a team of wild animals when a nature documentary hones in on them as subjects. What kind of animal would Bender be?

SEASON FINALE, 10pm, USA
Necessary Roughness
In "All The King's Horses" the Hawks prepare for their season opener, but a massive disaster may materialize at the zero hour, threatening the team's future. Considering it's the season finale, do you think this "disaster" will wind up as a cliff-hanger? And what is this disaster, anyway?


10:30pm, TV Land
The Exes
In "He's Gotta Have It" the guys get a less-than-expected visitor—one of Phil's tennis star clients, who moves in for a short stint to escape from the paparazzi. Also Holly and Haskell kick start a competition to determine which one of them is better suited to take care of a pregnant Eden. Shouldn't Eden be best suited to take care of pregnant Eden?
