American Ninja Warrior on NBC at 8:00pm ET.
Guilt on Freeform at 9:00pm ET. Series premiere. This is the new crime series based on the Amanda Knox case. I do a double take when I see the ads, though, because the lead actress, Daisy Head (Anthony Stewart Head’s daughter), bears SUCH a resemblance to Jessa Duggar that I keep thinking they gave her a show. Like how USA occasionally tries to plug their reality stars into scripted series, like that’s acceptable. So far, that has distracted me from being the proper amount of appalled that this is an actual TV series.
2016 NBA Finals: Game 5 on ABC at 9:00pm ET.
Braindead on CBS at 9:59pm ET. Series premiere. This is the thing that the Kings of The Good Wife fame are going to do now that the Wife is no longer Good. It’s about mind control and politics, and maybe zombies? Mary Elizabeth Winstead is in it, and after watching 10 Cloverfield Lane I kinda wish she had better things to do with her time. Aaron Tveit is also still trying to make the TV star thing work for him, and Tony Shalhoub is here too, because why not. For all my DC area friends, start taking bets on how quickly it will be obvious that none of this DC-based show was filmed here in DC.
Major Crimes on TNT at 10:00pm ET. Fifth season premiere.
