What To Watch: 05/21/2019

Dax Shepard and Lake Bell — that should be enough to get you to watch, but also look at the supporting cast both above and below. SAVE OUR SHOW, peeps! Speaking of supporting cast, legendary comedian Wanda Sykes has improved great shows running from Curb Your Enthusiasm to Broad City. Also, keep your eyes out for a new hour of those young turk newswomen and CBS debuts its first Summer series — a tomb-robbing heist. Talk about hashtag throwback Tuesday.



Bless This Mess [ABC, 9:30p]
In episode six — and the season finale! — Mike and Rio enter Priyanka in the county fair. Why would ABC order so few episodes?! They better bring this smart, funny show back. And I hope Priyanka is best hen! She works so hard.

Wanda Sykes: Not Normal [Netflix]
She’s been one of the most ruthlessly funny comedians for so many decades, so you have zero reason for not watching her latest special. That is all!

The Bold Type [Freeform, 8p]
Kat is forging ahead with her campaign for city council and racism rears its ugly head in her neighborhood. Sutton thinks Richard is hiding something and Jane continues her investigation of the abusive photographer.



  • Relics from Antony & Cleopatra’s romance set the backdrop for the opening of CBS’ new Summer replacement drama (is that even a thing anymore?) Blood & Treasure, starring Matt Barr & Sofia Pernas.
  • Reelz would seem to be doing the Bravo shift — that is, morphing from a serious arts channel into something more provocative. Their latest new series is Executed with Deborah Norville which looks back at the sniper attacks which leveled fear across the DC Metro area and gripped the nation in a post-9/11 panic. The promo’s tone does not suggest it will NOT be exploitative.
  • As ABC’s Black-ish closes out its fifth season, Junior has to decide between Migos and college. You might guess which side his parents are on, and you would not be wrong.
  • Six child chefs taking over a Michelin-rated restaurant sounds like a 1970s movie starring Ricky Schroeder, but it’s actually the plot of tonight’s MasterChef Junior on FOX.
