Lip Sync Battle on MTV at 7:30pm ET. Special presentation. This is airing before the MTV Movie & TV Awards, Zendaya and Tom Holland are competing. They are delightful, and I very much encourage you to watch them. Watching the awards on afterwards may make you feel positively ANCIENT if you are older than 23, though, so I wouldn’t recommend doing that.
American Gods on Starz at 9:00pm ET. The first episode of this was so good. I’m real excited to see how they keep it up.
The Leftovers on HBO at 9:00pm ET. Last week made it clear why Kevin Sr. and Matt get along so well, both of them have a talent for turning good intentions into total shitshows. Although I don’t think Matt has ever been personally responsible for multiple deaths. Anyway, everyone’s going to Australia, so that’s probably where we’re going to wind things up.
Billions on Showtime at 10:00pm ET. Second season finale.
Last Week Tonight with John Oliver on HBO at 11:00pm ET. 100th episode.
