“Monday Night Football: Preseason: Chargers at Bears” on ESPN at 8:00pm ET.
“Extreme Exterminators” on History at 9:00pm ET. Series premiere. I can’t even watch the commercials for this series, but if you’re cool with scenes of entire floors writhing with bugs, walls full of wasps, closets full of rats, or other similarly swarm-y scenes such as those occasionally featured on “Hoarders” then I hope you like it. I’m sure the cast of colorful characters will make lots of clever quips not dissimilar from the one your “wacky” uncle makes at holiday get togethers after a couple drinks.
“Owner’s Manual” on AMC at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. In this new reality series, men will tackle difficult challenges. One will get an owner’s manual and follow the directions to the letter, the other one will go on instinct alone. Sure to give you enough proof to further endorse whichever you think is the best method. Be sure to watch it with your spouse/partner/body pillow for maximum effect.
“Wilfred” on FX at 10:00pm ET.
“The Pitch” on AMC at 11:00pm ET. Second season premiere. This episode is called “College Hunks Hauling Junk” and I swear that’s a real business so, you know, spoiler alert.
Genevieve Burgess tends to take the manual as an excellent starting point, but has been known to improvise quite a bit. So far it’s working for her.
