The Marvelettes’ song “Please Mr. Postman,” the first Motown song to reach the #1 position on the U.S. charts, was released on this date in 1961.
Pretty Little Liars (ABC Family 8pm) Spencer uncovers Paige’s sordid history with Alison, but Emily is reluctant to heed her warning, Aria tries to help Ezra move on from his past.
On the plus side, when Ezra finally snaps and begins his career as a serial killer, odds are good that Aria will be his first victim.
American Gypsies (The National Geographic Channel 8pm) Chris envisions an unconventional business opportunity; Nicky wants to sacrifice a lamb to restore Bob Sr.’s health.
In my family, we just make some chicken soup.
Craft Wars (TLC 8pm) The contestants must create a food-and wine-themed display out of kitchen supplies.
I like to call this particular piece “We Made Lasagna For Dinner Last Night.”
MasterChef (Fox 9pm) The cooks select mystery box ingredients that represent who they are; the judges surprise the cooks with a twist; the cooks re-create a dish that Graham Elliot served to the president.
This is one mystery box challenge that I would have loved to see Tali take part in.
The L.A. Complex (The CW 9pm) Connor encounters someone from Jennifer’s past; Beth’s protective nature takes over; Abby starts to feel overwhelmed.
Nothing a little over-acting and unnecessarily skimpy clothing can’t fix.
Face Off (SyFy 9pm) Premiere: Hollywood star Sean Astin welcomes the cast; the artists create original aliens for the classic Star Wars cantina scene.
It’s also been done in Legos.
NY Med (ABC 10pm) A trauma surgeon struggles with becoming attached to his patients.
He might want to consider using sutures instead of surgical glue if this is a recurring issue.
Teen Mom (MTV 10pm) Maci and Ryan fight at Bentley’s birthday; Farrah spends time with Sophia; Amber and Gary devise a custody plan; Catelynn and Tyler help their parents cope.
So basically it’s like every other episode of Teen Mom ever? Cool.
Covert Affairs (USA 10pm) Annie tries to turn the prime minister of Yemen’s chief of staff into a CIA asset.
I haven’t seen this show, but everything about it from the name to the ads to the episode description screams “Sexpionage!”
Collection Intervention (SyFy 10:30) Elyse meets Crazy Jack, whose vintage die cast car and GI Joe collection has taken over their home.
The guy’s named Crazy Jack. I’m surprised he isn’t collecting his own toenail clippings.
