For a decent number of Pajiba After Dark readers, tonight will probably be the last night of TV they watch for the week since A Dance with Dragons comes out tomorrow so all of them will be eyeball deep in their books/Kindles hastening towards the end of the “Song of Ice and Fire” series that I’m sure George R. R. Martin has completely planned out to a meticulous and thoroughly satisfying conclusion. Awww, now I feel bad. It’s not nice to tease about these things, as anyone who was a fan of “Battlestar: Galactica” should be aware of. Now I made myself sad. There’s just no winning here. Here’s your stupid Monday night TV:
8:00pm: “The Bachelorette” on ABC
“Basketball Wives” on VH1
“Eureka” on SyFy. Fourth season summer premiere.
“Inside the Actor’s Studio: Jennifer Aniston” on Bravo
“Secret Life of the American Teenager” on ABC Family
9:00pm: “American Pickers” on History
“No Reservations” on Travel Channel. Seventh season summer premiere. Mr.Bourdain will be visiting Cuba which means most of Miami will probably boycott the show while the rest of the country looks at each other and goes “wait, what?”
“Cake Boss” on TLC
“The Closer” on TNT. Seventh season premiere.
“Love Crimes of Kabul” on HBO
“Hoarders” on A&E
“Man vs. Wild” on Discovery. Seventh season premiere.

“Switched at Birth” on ABC Family
“Unfaithful: Stories of Betrayal” on OWN
“Warehouse 13” on SyFy. Third season premiere.
“WWE: RAW” on USA. CHECK YOUR LOCAL LISTINGS FOR THE MOST ACCURATE START TIMES OF ANY SHOWS, PARTICULARLY IF YOU DO NOT RESIDE IN THE EASTERN TIME ZONE.
10:00pm: “All Worked Up” on TruTV
“Alphas” on SyFy. 90 minute series premiere. Listen, Sci-Fi writers, I will be more terrified of genetically engineered super humans when geneticists can reliably predict and control what eye color a baby will end up with.
“American Restoration” on History

“Intervention” on A&E
“Law and Order: Los Angeles” on NBC. First season finale.
