WHAT’S ON TONIGHT: MONDAY AUGUST 17th

Monday, August 17 by
Messy homes, nudity, super-strength, and a man-eatin catfish. Tonight’s TV preview reads like a raucous meth binge.
 
CHECK OUT WHAT TO WATCH AFTER THE JUMP
 
NOTE: ALL TIMES EASTERN AND PACIFIC!!!

 
 
HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER (RERUN)
Network: CBS
Time: 8 – 8:30PM
 
Reasons to watch: The guys devise a bold plan with the belief that if they strip naked midway through a date, two out of three times the outcome will be sex. I like the way they think. There’s risk involved but if successful the reward is valuable. No more hole in the popcorn tub for me!
 
 
METH: A COUNTY IN CRISIS
Network: Biography
Time: 8 – 9 PM
 
Reasons to watch: This show is like watching what the felons from COPS were up to earlier that day. Some programming genius needs to plan a crossover.
 
X-MEN: THE LAST STAND
Network: FX
Time: 8 – 11PM
 
Reasons to watch: Brett Ratner’s terrible take on the mutant franchise does have some amazing special effects despite the fact that it’s a steaming turd otherwise. But seriously? Why uproot the Golden Gate Bridge?? That seems a little gratuitous when you could just put everyone on a flying bus.
 
HOARDERS
Network: A&E
Time: 10 – 11PM
 
Reasons to watch: Push that pile of empty cereal boxes away from the TV screen and check out Hoarders. A show that profiles people who compulsively hoard belongings to the point that their homes are inhabitable. Just looking at the above picture gave me hepatitus (Well, that’s my cover story anyway).
 
HOOKED: MAN VS. FISH
Network: National Geographic
Time: 10 – 11PM

Reasons to watch: Jair Rigotti attempts to capture a man-eating catfish. That’s right. Catfish have moved up on the food chain. Syfy Channel, please plan your crappy movie schedule accordingly.
