On this date in 1358 the Republic of Dubrovnik was official declared no longer subject to the rule of Venice and although it was taken under Hungary’s protection, it became a primarily autonomous city-state, until being conquered by Napoleon Bonaparte four hundred fifty years later. Challenge: say “Republic of Dubrovnik” five times in a row and tell me if it doesn’t completely improve your mood (and strangely make you want to wear a fur hat and call everyone “comrade” for the rest of the day.)
Dogs in the City (CBS 8pm) A mischievous puppy chews holes in the walls; a family with a hefty dog starts exercising; Justin works with a dog who is aggressive with men.
Silly Justin, he’s dominant, not aggressive.
So You Think You Can Dance (Fox 8pm) During the 200th episode of the series, the top 20 finalists are announced; actress Zooey Deschanel serves as guest judge.

Million Dollar Listing: Los Angeles (Bravo 9pm) Josh Altman’s temper runs short, causing him to miss a huge listing; Madison concocts a plan to sell his family home; one of Josh Flagg’s clients threatens to back out of a deal.
I hope Madison told the rest of the family; otherwise they might take it badly when the new owners start moving in.
Monte Carlo (HBO Signature 9pm)
A case of mistaken identity turns a trip to Europe into the adventure of a lifetime for a teen, her stepsister and her best friend.
What, you guys didn’t really think I was only going to settle for two nights on the air per week, did you? Also, those bitches at HBO are going to pay for spelling my name wrong. Now where did I put that meat cleaver…?
Cajun Pawn Stars (The History Channel 9pm) The guys check out a 1975 Mac Fire Truck; an old railroad track known as a Sherman Necktie; Joker pops by in hopes of selling his classic 1950s popcorn machine.
Many hilarious misunderstandings took place when this show originally began filming, because that is actually how they pronounce “porn” down on the bayou.

The pressing question this season: Who will change J.R.’s catheter bag?

Suck it, Fallon, from now on I’m going to bed three hours earlier on Wednesday nights after watching this comedy gem.
The Real World: St. Thomas (MTV 10pm) The roommates move in to their St. Thomas home; one roommate feels left out.
It’s like looking in a mirror of my own post high-school experience. Cinéma vérité, indeed.
