CMA Music Festival: Country’s Night to Rock on ABC at 8:00pm ET. You guys, the regular television season is so close to being back. So close. There’s only a few more weeks of this sort of thing to get through, and I promise it’s probably harder on me than on you. Honestly, making fun of summer TV is like making fun of a younger sibling trying to tag along with your group of friends; it’s way too easy, there’s nothing there to be proud of, and at the end of the day you kind of feel a bit ashamed about it.
Face Off on SyFy at 9:00pm ET.
Royal Pains on USA at 9:00pm ET.
Hard Knocks: Training Camp With the Atlanta Falcons on HBO at 10:00pm ET. Ninth season premiere. And the teasing leading up to the actual football season continues.
Drunk History on Comedy Central at 10:00pm ET. Tonight’s episode focuses on Hollywood, and Drunk History is probably the most appropriate showcase for that history. Also, the series has been renewed for a third season so get ready for more inebriated historians! I’d actually like to see them branch out into other academic areas. Drunk science, drunk engineering, drunk translating, etc. I’d say drunk music, but I spent enough years in music school that I know that would be redundant.
Genevieve Burgess loves summer but hates summer TV. With a few exceptions.
