Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s opera Die Entführung aus dem Serail, better known as Il Seraglio, debuted on this date in 1782. Now I want to watch Amadeus for the 50th time. What can I say, I’ve always had a soft spot for Salieri.
The Bachelorette (ABC 8pm) The Men Tell All: Memorable bachelors from this season return for a final confrontation with Emily and each other; one bachelor tries to justify his actions; previously unseen footage and unforgettable moments.
The “Tell All” episodes are the best part of any Bachelor/Bachelorette season; the contestents, now having some idea of how they’ve been edited, attempt to overcompensate for they ways they’ve been portrayed, and fail dismally.
Fear Factor (NBC 8pm) Contestants connected to a helicopter via bungee cord are ripped off a cliff’s edge; other stunts include being submerged in a tub full of leeches and navigating through a five-story building engulfed in flames.
Quick, name one Fear Factor contestant from any season. Can’t do it? Neither can I.
Hell’s Kitchen (Fox 8pm) A competitive eater and the chefs participate in a wing-eating contest; history is made during a blind taste test.
I’m pretty sure anybody who can scarf down fried testicles the way this girl can is going to make any competitive eater reconsider their career choice.
MasterChef (Fox 9pm) The eight finalists must prepare, cook and serve a hearty meal to 101 cowboys; the challenge losers must prepare six eggs four different ways in only 20 minutes.
They’re promising that this week’s elimination will be “shocking” and “heart-breaking.” Place your bets now, ladies and gentlemen.
Market Warriors (PBS 9pm) Four pickers head to Renningers Adamstown, a large indoor/outdoor flea market, to find mid-century modern items amid the Pennsylvania Dutch antiques.
Looks like this antiquing show needs a Market Square Hero (if anybody gets that reference, you will be my best friend for at least a week.)
The Real Housewives of New York City (Bravo 9pm) Sonja, Heather, LuAnn and Carole play croquet; Aviva is concerned by Sonja’s lack of party planning; Aviva falls down the stairs at the party.
You know who else played croquet?
I think we all remember how well that whole situation panned out.
Eureka (SyFy 9pm) Finale: Carter must save the town after wormholes begin appearing and threaten to tear Eureka apart.
Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t that how the series began? Nice way to wrap everything up. Goodbye, Eureka!
Miss Advised (Bravo 10pm) Julia plans the night of her dreams and hopes Andrew is on board; Amy dresses casually for a date, but Lewis turns the tables; Emily’s blind date takes her to acrobatic yoga.
This show might single-handedly shut down the matchmaking business forever.
Teen Wolf (MTV 10pm) Scott and Stiles figure out a way to trap the new shapeshifter; Allison’s mother plans to take care of Scott for good.
Something tells me that adoption and a trust fund are not in her plans.
Bad Girls Club: Mexico (Oxygen 10pm) Episode: Wash, Rinse, Re-beat
Its nice when they’re upfront about the violence; that is, after all, why we watch the show.
What will you be watching tonight?
