The Obvious Choice For What’s On Tonight: It’s Another MTV Takeover



The Obvious Choice: Awkward (MTV, 9 p.m.) – The season five premiere sees Jenna still obsessing over Matty, and a senior prank causing chaos at school. Ignoring the fact that it’s taken five years for these kids to graduate, there’s something weirdly entertaining about watching a bunch of self-absorbed teenagers reenact your most embarrassing high school moments on TV. “Obvious Choice”

Faking It (MTV, 9:30 p.m.) – Season three kicks off with Karma and Amy trying to mend their broken friendship and the arrival of a stricter new school principal.

Todrick (MTV, 10 p.m.) – A new docu-series about some kid who’s made it big by producing his own YouTube videos premieres. If watching other people try to get famous interests you, you should tune in.

Girl Code Live (MTV, 10:30 p.m.) – A late (for MTV, anyway) night chat show hosted by three girls you’ve never heard of premieres. They’ll be talking mostly about the VMAs.

American Ninja Warrior (NBC, 8 p.m.) – The show’s getting back to its Japanese roots tonight when the remaining finalists head to Las Vegas to take on Stage One of a four-stage course.

Bachelor in Paradise (ABC, 8 p.m.) – Two people are married by a Shaman, another couple gets an overnight date in the fantasy suite, and there’s a grown woman on this show who spells her name C-H-E-L-S-I-E. Not kidding.

Fashion Police (E!, 8 p.m.) – Giuliana Rancic and Brad Goreski – the only two people insane enough to stay with this sinking ship – talk about Miley Cyrus’ revealing outfits at the VMAs and pretty much nothing else.

So You Think You Can Dance (Fox, 8 p.m.) – Two contestants are eliminated as the final six dancers perform.

WWE Monday Night Raw (USA, 8 p.m.) – Sting is now stalking Seth Rollins. That is all.

Running Wild with Bear Grylls (NBC, 10 p.m.) – Michael B. Jordan is punishing himself for that pretty terrible Fantastic Four reboot by teaming up with Bear and heading to one of the saddest places on earth – Wales. A couple of days enduring the cold weather, blinding rain and wind and being force-fed Bear’s survival techniques should cure him of ever thinking about attempting another superhero franchise again.

The Whispers (ABC, 10 p.m.) – If you stuck with this show, the season finale airs tonight, and Drill is ramping up the schedule for his endgame, leaving the team scrambling to prevent catastrophe. In other words, be prepared to have all of your questions (not?) answered.

LATE NIGHT GUESTS: Roseanne Barr and Demi Lovato on Kimmel; and Gov. Chris Christie and Victoria Justice on Fallon. Corden, Meyers and Conan are repeats.
