American Ninja Warrior on NBC at 8:00pm ET.
Cake Wars on Food Network at 8:00pm ET. Series premiere. I swear I thought Food Network already had this as a series but apparently I was thinking of Cupcake Wars and/or one of the endless competition shows centered around cake that is not actually Cake Wars. My mistake. This new series will bring in four bakers who have three rounds to conceptualize and create cakes for special events that incorporate specific flavors and themes. Hosted by
Aaron Samuels Jonathan Bennett of Mean Girls fame.
Larry Kramer in Love and Anger on HBO at 9:00pm ET.
Teen Wolf on MTV at 10:00pm ET. Fifth season premiere. I’d never seen the actual teen wolf on this until I googled it and it… kinda sucks? Like, it looks more like a furry vampire than a werewolf, but that’s just my impression.
The Whispers on ABC at 10:01pm ET. I’m vaguely curious about what’s going on with this show, but probably not enough to actually watch it. It’s another one of those shows that seems like it would be impossible to sustain the mystery long term, so I don’t know how the series is supposed to go on.
Genevieve Burgess doesn’t really know what an “accurate” werewolf would look like, but it’s definitely not whatever MTV is putting out there.
