Time to Realize How Long Ago the 90s Were
American Ninja Warrior on NBC at 8:00pm ET.
Major Crimes on TNT at 9:00pm ET. Fourth season summer finale.
I Am Chris Farley on SpikeTV at 9:00pm ET. Two hour special presentation. This documentary about the life of Chris Farley includes interview with Adam Sandler, Mike Myers, David Spade, Chris Rock, Molly Shannon, Jon Lovitz, Bob Odenkirk, Dan Aykroyd, and others who knew Farley and could speak to his comedic style and his personality. It’s gotten good early reviews and was made in cooperation with Farley’s family.
Cuban Chrome on Discovery at 10:00pm ET. This episode is the one where it’s announced that the US and Cuba will resume diplomatic relations so if you’re interested in seeing how that went over in Cuba tonight is the night to tune in.
Running Wild with Bear Grylls on NBC at 10:01pm ET. This week’s guest is Michelle Rodriguez. I wonder how Rodriguez’s tough-lady persona will do after this show, but I don’t think the goal is to actually challenge people. More to look like they’re being challenged while giving them a naturalistic way to push whatever story about themselves their publicist wants them to push this week.
Genevieve Burgess admist that she is somewhat cynical about celebrity interview shows that aren’t set up explicitly as interview shows.
