Full Frontal with Samantha Bee [TBS, 10:30p]

Samantha interviews the Mexican immigrant that is behind the Latinos for Trump movement. I need to see this with mine own eyes to believe it.
American Ninja Warrior [NBC, 8p]
Tonight the warriors move through increasingly complex and mind-boggling obstacles, and we continue to root for our heroine Jessie Graff, the unstoppable Wonder Woman.
ALSO ON TAP TONIGHT:
- For more humor-spiked election year coverage, The Daily Show with Trevor Noah will be going every Monday through Friday until early November. We’re still sad we’ve seen the last of the Unblackening. RIP Nightly Show.
- A winner is declared tonight from the rump-shaking bunch of amateurs on the 13th season of So You Think You Can Dance?
- Meanwhile, we’re just getting started as celebrities show off their wares on a 23rd season of Dancing with the Stars. As you can see in the picture above, Merilu Henner from the 1970s TV show Taxi hopes you’ll tune in to watch her shine.
- So, there’s some chance JonBenet: An American Murder Mystery+ could not be exploitative.
