What to watch on Monday, June 17...
7:30pm, Cartoon Network
“Another 5 Short Graybles” spins bite-sized tales about time travel, Cinnamon Bun’s fear of darkness, and more. Then in “The Great Birdman,” a lost Finn and Jake depend on Xergiok to spirit them safely away from the badlands.
8pm, ABC Family
Switched at Birth
Ty surprises Bay with tales of his tour of duty as they reconnect in “Distorted House,” while Bay’s wish to stay with Regina unsettles Kathryn and Daphne. Elsewhere, Toby and Travis vie for a job opening at John’s car wash—a contest that can only be settled honorably by a hot wax duel.
The Goodwin Games
Hoping to get more involved in his daughter’s life, Jimmy pays a visit to young Piper and introduces her to Henry and Chloe in “The Birds of Granby.” While aunt and niece strike up an instant rapport, Henry considers bonding with Piper’s stepdad through a business arrangement.
9pm, ABC Family
Stef is none too pleased by Mike’s suggestion that Brandon move in, spurring a set-to between mother and son. Meanwhile in “Hostile Acts,” Jesus’s blossoming romance with Lexi gets Mariana’s goat, and a school assignment sends Callie careening down the Dark Secret Frontage Road off Memory Lane.
In “False Pretenses,” Emma insists that Rusty be relocated after he receives a foreboding letter—which is especially suspicious since it’s the first time anyone under the age of 20 has received an honest-to-goodness letter since at least 2002. At the station, a murder-suicide case has the squad bamboozled.
“If I Ever Leave This World Alive” finds the Iraths quarantined in the mines when the town suffers an outbreak of frightful plaque. Now that is a species that takes dental hygiene seriously, y’all, because... hang on, sorry, this says plague. A plague breaks out. That makes more sense. Nevertheless, we could all stand to learn a valuable lesson about brushing and flossing regularly.
A tony suburban community is under the influence of the artifact-of-the-week in “What Matters Most,” prompting Pete and Myka to go undercover in search of answers. And also in search of the finest fast-casual cuisine this side of the North Point strip mall complex.
The team pursues cattle rustlers and rustled cattle in “The Road to Hell.” Are the culprits common thieves, or has the Hamburglar begun branching out in his beef-based banditry? In non-bovine business, a mysterious gift spurs a worrying change in Vic’s demeanor.
The Winner Is...
NBC's summary insists this is a singing competition hosted by Nick Lachey, but with an episode title like “Million Dollar Mistake,” I refuse to believe it’s about anything other than finding the next head of the network's programming development.
Savi and Dom’s working relationship grows knottier in “Breaking and Entering,” while Joss contends with a demanding new boss and a Sisyphean assignment. Elsewhere, Karen becomes further absorbed by the Grey family in what I imagine is blatant piggybacking off a more popular ABC drama.
Scott and Derek turn to an unexpected ally for aid in “Fireflies.” There’s an obvious joke here, but authorities have warned me that even hinting at a Browncoats/Teen Wolf crossover could cripple the nation’s Strategic Tumblr Reserves.
