What to Watch Tonight: The Return of Playing House, the Season 1 Finale of Stitchers, and the CMA Music Festival

Yahoo! Music News - Wed, 08/05/2015 - 04:08

 The Return of Playing House, the Season 1 Finale of Stitchers, and the CMA Music FestivalWhat to watch on Tuesday, August 4... 8pm, ABC CMA Music Festival: Country's Night to Rock Performances by Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum, Kenny Chesney, and many more are among the highlights from the four-day hootenanny in Nashville, recorded in June. Little Big Town returns to host for the third time. 8pm, ABC Family Pretty Little Liars With the girls considered persona non grata at the Rosewood High prom in "Last Dance," their mothers instead organize the swankiest gala ever held in Spencer's barn. But will Charles find a way to foil the festivities? SEASON 1 FINALE, 9pm, ABC Family Stitchers After a shooter wounds Det. Fisher, the team circles the wagons in "Full Stop." Kirsten's stitch leads to a security expert with connections to her mom and to Maggie, while Linus is preoccupied with jealousy that Cameron is training Camille as his backup. DOCUMENTARY PREMIERE, 9pm, PBS JFK & LBJ: A Time for Greatness A chronicle of the Johnson administration's efforts to pass the 1964 Civil Rights Act and the 1965 Voting Rights Act, among the most vital legislation in American history. This week marks the 50th anniversary of the latter's signing. Morgan Freeman narrates. 9pm, CBS Zoo Mitch and Chloe are kidnapped by a drug lord while trying to solve Rio's bat problem, as the series increasingly veers into chemically addled Hunter S. Thompson fanfic. Elsewhere in "This Is What It Sounds Like," Jackson Oz, Jamie, and Agent Shaffer search for escaped inmate Evan Lee Hartley. 9pm, TNT Rizzoli & Isles In "Nice to Meet You, Dr. Isles," the investigation of a high-profile jeweler's murder leads to a relative of Maura's—and to a skeleton in the family closet. 9pm, Syfy Face Off Aboard a U.S. Coast Guard ship in "Siren Song," the artists must conjure their versions of the lethally alluring aquatic temptresses. SEASON 2 PREMIERE, 10pm & 10:30pm, USA Playing House After an awkward encounter with Mark and Tina, Maggie and Emma must launch a rescue mission in "Hello, Old Friend." Then "Sleepless in Pinebrook" finds Emma encouraging Maggie to give online dating a whirl, while Zach and Bruce babysit Charlotte. 10pm, MTV Scream I am shocked— shocked!—to find that the prime suspect is revealed to be someone close to Emma in "Betrayed." Round up the usual suspects (i.e., everyone on the regular-and-recurring-cast call sheet). 10pm, NBC Hollywood Game Night Gina Rodriguez, Rex Lee, Tom Arnold, Curtis Stone, Yvette Nicole Brown, and Zachary Levi are the contestants in an episode titled "Don't Drink and Game Night," which strikes me as entirely contrary to the ethos of Hollywood Game Night. 10pm, FX Tyrant Jamal doubts Rami's loyalty in "Fathers and Sons," while Sammy throws his support behind the insurgents battling the Army of the Caliphate. Meanwhile, Barry is troubled by his apparent dependence on the goodwill of the palace. 10pm, TBS Clipped The gang tries to help Buzzy recoup his losses in "The Gambler," but Ben isn't fully on board with their plan. Elsewhere, the Doyle sisters are enmeshed in wedding-related shenanigans, prompting Joy to question her relationship with Bart. 10pm, TNT Proof In "Reborn," a grieving mother is certain that her dead son has been reincarnated in a piano. Sounds more like fare for a wacky sitcom than for a contemplative drama, doesn't it? Wait... sorry, that should say "in a piano prodigy." Had my notes mixed up. Now if you'll excuse me, I just had a brilliant idea for a wacky sitcom pilot script. 10:30pm, Comedy Central Another Period Hoping to gain fame, Lillian stages her own kidnapping in "Switcheroo Day." In other schemes, Dodo tasks Peepers with impersonating the Commodore at a luncheon, and Beatrice mistakes Blanche for an aristocrat. 12:30am, Comedy Central The Meltdown with Jonah and Kumail Performers in "The One With the Clearance Issues" include Aparna Nancherla, Ron Funches, Al Madrigal, and Chelsea Peretti. LATE-NITE: – Ryan Reynolds, Judy Greer, and Catfish & the Bottlemen on Conan, 11pm, TBS – Denis Leary on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, 11pm, Comedy Central – Lennon Parham, Jessica St. Clair, and Mike Yard on The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore, 11:30pm, Comedy Central – Don Rickles, Kate Mara, Penn & Teller, and Joe Satriani on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, 11:35pm, NBC – Craig Robinson, Michael Ian Black, and Christina Tosi on Late Night with Seth Meyers, 12:35am, NBC – Gordon Ramsy & Matilda Ramsay, Josh Charles, and Milky Chance on The Late Late Show with James Corden, 12:37am, CBS WHAT ARE YOU WATCHING TONIGHT?

Zoo: Was "This Is What it Sounds Like" Music to Your Ears?

Yahoo! Music News - Tue, 08/04/2015 - 22:08

 Was "This Is What it Sounds Like" Music to Your Ears?Zoo S01E06: "This is What it Sounds Like" For a show about animals committing genocide via furevolution, you'd think Zoo would feature way more straight-up beastly attacks. Sure there were bears and rats, and STILL BATS but also a big focus tonight in "This is What it Sounds Like" for some reason was the rescue of Chloe and Mitch from a Brazilian drug dealer who WAS NOT AN ANIMAL AT ALL. Were you into it? What about Jackson and the gang's pursuit of the Wolfmaster? So I'm tinkering away reviewing the materials at hand and building something we can all be proud of in terms of recapping and photos and .GIFs and what have you, but please do me and Zoo Nation a solid and discuss tonight's episode here in the mean time. What was Mitch's best moment? Are you delighted with how things are shaping up? Ready, Set... COMMENT! Yours Forever (or a Few Weeks), Ryan
