What To Watch: 05/16/2019

2The beleaguered Sandra is at the center of attention in Cloud 9 and apparently this time for once it’s a good thing for her — and we love that for her. Also, zombies and drag queens both get their grooves back, but on the actual dance floor. Meanwhile, one of television’s most watched sitcoms says goodbye forever — its prequel just for the Summer.

Dinah and Amy go to headquarters to clear up a blunder of Sandra’s, while Garrett tries to prove he’s a good guy. He took in Jonah when he needed a place to stay, so he’s obviously a good guy!

iZombie [The CW, 8p]
The brain-eating adventures have become two times more lively now that Ravi is a zombie and can join in on the personality-shifting. In tonight’s episodes they try to solve the case of a champion dance team, by going in disguise as a… champion dance team.

It’s the top five! This week the queens face their most grueling challenge to date with acting, singing, and dancing choreographed by the talented Todrick Hall. After tonight, we’ll know which queens are headed to the live finale and which queen is headed home.



  • Never really one of our favorite shows, and the nerdier population of our editors found it a slight bit exploitative, but The Big Bang Theory has its finale on CBS, along with a special celebrating its end, Unraveling The Mystery: A Big Bang Farewell.
  • But Sheldon fans should not dismay as Young Sheldon is still a thing and for at least two more seasons on CBS. Its series finale is tonight.
  • Clunk clunk! Greenlighted to break its tie with both Gunsmoke and the original Law & Order to move into sole possession of second place for longest running scripted show in TV history, Law & Order: SVU takes care of its 20th season with Benson crossing wits with nemesis Rob Miller. Mariska Hargitay has been there the whole run, but please nobody tell that Love Guru guy.
  • It’s buddy up with your enemy (rival?) night tonight on NBC’s Brooklyn Nine-Nine — do we sense a Doug Judy appearance.
  • And so it shall be seven on this week’s Project Runway on Bravo and pretty cool challenge tonight as the remaining designers are told to create the change they want to see in their outfits and to make it work! OK, not that last one as Tim Gunn’s gone to the wind…
  • Jordan Klepper takes his lamp of justice down to Louisiana to shed light on protesters trying to stop a pipeline — cajun style! And on Comedy Central’s Klepper, he’ll have better jokes than ours.
  • Pamela Adlon herself directs this week’s episode of the underappreciated Better Things. It’s still on FX.
