Indeed; someone, obviously from Florida, appears to be named fäde, with an umlaut over the “a,” and no fucks to be given. We, meanwhile, are excited about the Indian girl. Guest-judges this season will include Elisabeth Moss, Julie Bowen, Shay Mitchell, and Dita Von Teese. And Christian Siriano!

The American Bible Challenge (GSN, never): TODAY IS A TRUE TRAGEDY. Last week was the season finale of this game, and we forgot to commemorate it in What’s On Tonight—a travesty. Did you know that the official website for The American Bible Challenge has a section devoted to “Faith Moments”? Did you know that Jeff Foxworthy hosts this show? Did you know that it is now casting? You—yes, you—could challenge the Bible.

Hell’s Kitchen (Fox, 8 p.m.): 12th season finale. A winner, presumably, is chosen. The winner receives $250,000 and a head-chef position at Gordon Ramsay’s pub at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas. (Which sounds awful.)

Black Box (ABC, 8 p.m.): And this odd little show that we liked while no one else did is ending its first season tonight in a two-hour event. (The event is just two hourlong episodes jammed together.) Catherine is having hallucinations, because she is a brilliant bipolar doctor, and that is the premise of the whole show!

Adventure Time (Cartoon Network, 7 p.m.)
Regular Show (Cartoon Network, 7:30 p.m.)
Defiance (Syfy, 8 p.m.)
Rectify (Sundance, 9 p.m.)
Married (FX, 10 p.m.)
Youre The Worst (FX, 10:30 p.m.)

Gang Related (Fox, 9 p.m.)
Dominion (Syfy, 9 p.m.)
Welcome To Sweden (NBC, 9 p.m.)
Working The Engels 
(NBC, 9:30 p.m.)
Maron (IFC, 10 p.m.)
Satisfaction (USA, 10 p.m.)

Monty Python’s Flying Circus (1 p.m.): We will take this opportunity of the fourth season of Monty Pythons Flying Circus to remind both Zack Handlen and you, dear reader, that one day, we really will get to reviewing Battlestar Galactica weekly, we promise. (Probably in two weeks.) 

It’s a lighter week for TV coverage, but look, this is TV-adjacent: Sonia Saraiya wrote up a primer of the Star Wars Expanded Universe, because she is insane, and because the EU is very, very big. (You could even call it expansive. Rimshot!)

Rush (USA, 9 p.m.): “Rush treats an MMA fighter with a career-jeopardizing condition while Alex tries to save his job and Manny and Eve discuss their roles in Rush’s life.”

#candidlynicole (VH1, 10 p.m.): “Nicole serves as the adult supervisor to her sister when her parents leave town. Elsewhere, Nicole sets out to get glasses to appear more respectable.” 

Leah Remini: It’s All Relative (TLC, 10 p.m.): Two episodes back to back. Description of episode one: “Leah reacts to an earthquake by asking Angelo to make sure the house is prepared for disasters. Meanwhile, Leah worries that Trish’s hobbies are hiding a hoarding problem.” Description of episode two: “Shannon’s 30th birthday is coming up, and her wish for breast augmentation may be fulfilled by Leah and Vicki. Meanwhile, Vicki babysits Sofia when Leah and Shannon go on a double date; and Angelo and George shop for a birthday cake.”

LeAnn And Eddie (VH1, 10:30 p.m.): “LeAnn has a ladies’ weekend with her Southern friends. Meanwhile, Eddie is offered a big TV job, but the gig would keep him away from his family.”

For A Good Time, Call… (MoMAX, 7:30 p.m.): “Two former college rivals team up to launch a lucrative phone-sex business while sharing a New York City apartment.”

The Dilemma (Oxygen, 9:45 p.m.): “Lifelong bachelor Ronny (Vince Vaughn) struggles to find a way to tell his best friend Nick (Kevin James) that his wife is cheating on him after he sees her with another man. Instead, he sets out to gather evidence against her in an investigation that quickly spins out of control.”

The Bridge: Emily Rios came out of the closet, or at least, talked about being a lesbian for the first time? This did not happen on The Bridge. But it happened relatedly to The Bridge. Molly Eichel knows exactly how much it relates.
