What to Watch Tonight: The Secret Life of the American Teenager, Alphas, and the Premiere of MTV's Death Valley

What to watch on Monday, August 29...


Here we go, another work week! Don't be too sad, though, you're only two days away from Wednesday, which is only two days away from Friday. See what I'm saying? Me neither. Hello, television!

The Secret Life of the American Teenager
Tonight Jack and Grace spend some quality time together on a school project, plus George notices that Nora's starting to bond with Molly Ringwald. What kind of monster wouldn't want to bond with Molly Ringwald, though? Don't pat yourself on the back too hard, Nora!

Death Valley
MTV's been on a bit of a hot streak lately with its live-action series. Both Teen Wolf and Awkward. get a thumbs up from me! (Very important endorsement, I know.) So that's why this show might be worth checking out—it's a mockumentary series in the vein of Cops, but instead of drunken trailer park harpies it's supernatural monsters who run afoul of the law. Plus it stars Alex from Lost! (Hubba hubba, right fellas??)

10pm, Syfy
As it turns out, mutant powers and cults don't mix well, and Hicks and Nina will find this out when an Alpha cult leader "bewitches" them during an assignment.

10pm, TNT
Rizzoli & Isles
The ladies look into a botched-robbery murder, plus Maura's mysterious ex shows up to cause tension between Maura and Jane. Oh whatever, get a room, Rizzoli and Isles!

Whoops, just as I finished praising MTV's newfound quality programming I noticed this new show, which premieres tonight: It's a reality show hybrid of Taxicab Confessions and Cops! Tune in to see dozens upon dozens of drunken girls and guys yammering at their arresting officers from the backseat of a suspiciously well-lit patrol car.

10:30pm, Showtime
The Big C
Parker Posey alert! Tonight her character's inappropriate friendship with Cathy's son continues when he accompanies her to her high school reunion. Plus Cathy offers to help Lee with HIS bucket list and Sean gets into it with the neighbors. All that and more on Shouting: The Series.
