Because American Tourists Don't Have a Bad Enough Reputation
Jill & Jessa: Counting On on TLC at 8:00pm ET. Third season premiere. Hey, remember yesterday when I was talking about basically raising kids to be reality show stars? Yeah.
Halt & Catch Fire on AMC at 9:00pm ET. Third season premiere.
MadTV on The CW at 9:00pm ET.
Chrisley Knows Best on USA at 10:00pm ET. Fourth season fall premiere. It’s not “fall” yet, USA. I can tell, because there’s no good shows on and I have to list dreck like this as though anyone in my audience is excited about watching it.
Better Late Than Never on NBC at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. This is a reality series where several old celebrities backpack through Asia “without luxuries.” It’s an adaptation of a South Korean series called Grandpas Over Flowers and stars William Shatner, Henry Winkler, George Foreman, and Terry Bradshaw. Also, a guy from Last Comic Standing named Jeff Dye will be the sole youngster. They’re presenting it as a straight reality series, but the commercials I’ve seen seem to have a semi-scripted bent so who knows.
