What to Watch: 07/05/2016

On a night of thrillers and reality shows, we go off the beaten path for a B-movie series marathon and a Lifetime Movie (and be on the lookout for an upcoming recurring feature on the latter).

NAVANI’S PICK:
Maya & Marty [NBC, 10p]
Tonight’s quest list includes Amy Poehler, Jerry Seinfeld and Will Forte. A hilarious spoof on Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee‎ is all a gal can hope for on a Tuesday nig

KATHERINE’S PICK:
The Other Wife [LMN, 10p]
When her husband turns up dead, a woman joins forces with his other wife from his double life to outwit the mobsters who murdered him.

JASON’S PICK:
Tremors Marathon [Syfy, 4:30p]
What better antidote to the bummer of having to go back to work (or not having a job to begin with) than this ridiculously fun B-movie series, started in the 1990s, about ravenous worms plucking people from above ground. Unfortunately, Syfy would appear to not have rights to the original, well-regarded film, but never fear, that’s more Michael Gross conspiracy theorist to go around.  

ALSO ON TAP TONIGHT:
