Who's Expending More Effort to Smile Here?

American Ninja Warrior on NBC at 8:00pm ET.

The Bachelorette on ABC at 8:00pm ET. I understand that this season the Bachelorette has taken the shocking step of actually sleeping with some of her suitors before the show-approved “date” window to do so. Good for her, I’m not sure why anyone would tip-toe around the fact that if you’re “dating” a reality show’s worth of people at the same time, sexual compatibility might be a legitimate factor in deciding who you’d like to spend more time with. But, I don’t watch the show so perhaps there’s some nuance I’m missing here.

So You Think You Can Dance on Fox at 8:00pm ET.

Packed in a Trunk: The Lost Art of Edith Lake Wilkinson on HBO at 9:00pm ET. This documentary examines the life of artist Edith Lake, who was committed to an asylum in 1924 and never heard from again. It sounds like whatever they find will be horrifying, yet enlightening.

Running Wild with Bear Grylls on NBC at 10:01 pm ET. This week’s guest is Jesse Tyler Ferguson of Modern Family so that is certainly someone that people know about and would want to see roughing it on television. Why not.

Genevieve Burgess isn’t sure who deserves compensation more, Bear Grylls or the people who have to pretend to be super excited to spend time with him.
