So You Think You Can Dance (Fox, 8:00 p.m.) – Season premiere. I’ve always hated this show, mostly because its title sounds like something the snotty leader of a rival dance troupe would say in a movie about saving a rec center, right before “Pump It Up” starts playing and everyone within a five mile radius gets served.
World Music Awards (NBC, 8:00 p.m.) – There are too many music award shows. The only good part about this one is that it introduced the phrase “From the Monte Carlo Sporting Club in Monaco” into my life. Sounds like the perfect cover for a jewel heist.
NBA Playoffs: Heat at Pacers (ESPN, 8:30 p.m.) – LeBron James doesn’t make sense. He’s basically a point guard who can score and is also the size of Karl Malone. I’m still not entirely convinced he isn’t a Monstar.
One Night Only: An All-Star Comedy Tribute to Don Rickles (SPIKE, 9:00 p.m.) – This is that thing we showed you clips from last week, one featuring Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, and one featuring Tracy Morgan. Watch it if you want. Or don’t.
NBC News Exclusive With Brian Williams: Inside the Mind of Edward Snowden (NBC, 10:00 p.m.) – Tonight is the big fancy Snowden interview that NBC has been pushing for a week. You could also watch Magnum P.I. on Netflix. You have options.
The Soup (E!, 10:00 p.m.) – Marc Maron guest stars. Periodic reminder to always watch The Soup..
American Greed (CNBC, 10:00 p.m.) – The second half of tonight’s episode focuses on the “Kids for Cash” scandal where two Pennsylvania judges railroaded kids into juvie in exchange for kickbacks from the private companies that built the detention facilities. Still one of the most messed up stories I’ve ever heard.
LATE NIGHT GUESTS: Everyone is in reruns except Ferguson, who has America Ferrera.
