What to Watch: 05/31/2018

May sweeps ends with a bit of a whisper, but don’t confuse that with a whimper as there’s still tons of stuff out there, even beyond that documentary on character actors that’s been in your queue for months. Here’s some stuff we love.

FIONA’S PICK:
RuPaul’s Drag Race [VH1, 8p]
Honestly I’m still recovering from last week’s elimination and don’t even know who to root for anymore. My heart belongs to Monet X Change for sure. Tonight the final five battle it out on the runway with an evil twin challenge. Looks like we get two looks for the price of one! Fingers crossed that Aquaria lip syncs. Honestly I just want to see her knocked down a peg.

JASON’S PICK:
Citizen Rose [E!, 10p]
Rose McGowan has been one of the most unstoppable forces of the #MeToo movement; while I’ve never been a huge fan of her as an actress, one has to applaud the tenacity that brought down one of this world’s most powerful monsters, while playing a large part in giving a voice to women who have been fighting sexism and the abuses of powerful men for years. The four-part series examining her fight finishes tonight on E!

BRAD’S PICK:
The Opposition with Jordan Klepper [Comedy, 11:30p]
Jordan Klepper’s brand of caustic satire is need Now more than ever. He and his crack team of correspondents never pull punches. And his guest tonight? None other than Bernie freakin’ Sanders.

KATHERINE’S PICK:
Evil’s Embrace [ID, 9p]
Two parents set out to find their 26-year-old son when the police accuse them of overreacting regarding his disappearance.

ALSO ON TAP TONIGHT:

  • Bravo’s most critically-acclaimed saga since those days when to paraphrase Kimmy Schmidt, their drama came in the form of operas, has two episodes left of the second season of Imposters the saga of the Bumblers, a team of well-heeled grifters.
  • Tarek El Moussa and Christina El Moussa return for an eighth season of re-selling houses on HGTV with Flip or Flop. We’d take flip, obviously. However, since the two have split up and this season promises to be more about that tension, looks like it’ll be flop.
  • The NBA Finals open up tonight on ABC as (sigh) the Cleveland Cavaliers take on the Golden State Warriors, and it should be as predictable a series as it was that those two teams making it, that is unless, say, J.R. Smith does something really strange at the end of a tie game.
  • Jimmy Kimmel loves basketball and he rolls out his Jimmy Kimmel Live!: Game Night offshoot to pair with the finals, inviting friends like Kevin Hart.
  • If you prefer word games to watching balls thrown through hoops, the annual National Spelling Bee has been going on since antediluvian times, and, well, no, apparently I cannot use that word in a sentence, you can watch it on ESPN.
