Reality TV About People Watching TV. We're Through the Looking Glass.
Time Scanners on PBS at 8:00pm ET. First season finale. This week they’ll be taking an in-depth look at Petra.
The Wil Wheaton Project on Syfy at 9:00pm ET.
The People’s Couch on Bravo at 10:00pm ET. So this is a show where people are recorded while watching TV to capture their reactions. So, a much more boring version of Mystery Science Theater 3000. But I also kind of want to go on, because there’s nothing that makes me happier than mocking television, as anyone unfortunate enough to be with me in the Pajiba chat for the LOST finale can attest.
The Walking Dead: Inside the Walking Dead on AMC at 10:00pm ET. This episode is all about the training and makeup that go into making the extras on this show into zombies. As I mentioned before, The Walking Dead doesn’t come back until October so now I really AM curious as to how long they’ll keep this up. By late August they’ll be onto “Inside the Walking Dead: The Craft Services of the Dead!” and “Inside the Walking Dead: The Key Grip Speaks!”
Nathan For You on Comedy Central at 10:30pm ET.
Genevieve Burgess finds Twitter a very helpful outlet for when she wants to mock TV and doesn’t have an audience handy.
