Dunno about you, but now we want there to exist a Fay Wray horror movie where a crafty gymnast defeats a come-to-life truck. Only us? Ok. Here’s some show suggestions, leading of course with the greatest sports event on Earth:
Olympic Preview Special [NBC, 8p]
A glimpse into what’s in store for us in Rio.
Ice Road Truckers [History, 10p]
Clearly the second greatest sports event on Earth is that carnival of northern survival, Ice Road Truckers. The hearty Alaskans return for a tenth season on the History Channel.
The Wedding March [TCM, 8p]
This silent film from 1928 stars Fay Wray in a romantic drama about an Austrian prince coerced into marrying an heiress, and not the woman he loves.
ALSO ON TAP TONIGHT:
- If you’re seeking hip-hop flavored comic variety shows, look no further than the various MTVs, my friend, as it’s the season debuts for Joking Off and Nick Cannon Presents: Wild N’ Out tonight.
