What To Watch: 05/30/2019

It’s still the time for exits, entrances, and rebirth, as we approach the end of TV’s traditional most sweeps-y month.

BRAD’S PICK:
Marvel’s Cloak & Dagger [Freeform, 8p]
It’s time for the titular Cloak and Dagger (Tyrone and Tandy) to face some inner demons as they enter the Loa Dimension to save New Orleans. The CW series continues to mix MCU thrills with YA drama while never sinking to the cliches of either.

KATHERINE’S PICK:
Abby’s [NBC, 8p]
Abbys is finally back. Are there special hijinks? No, but I’m happy to have the gang back — and tonight, for a full hour in back-to-back episodes!

JASON’S PICK:
iZombie [The CW, 8p]
Liv, Ravi, and the gang channel Ferris Bueller’s Day Off as we hurtle towards the end of the most wonderfully quirky undead series ever. Catch the episode title: “Death Moves Pretty Fast.”

FIONA’S PICK:
RuPaul’s Drag Race [VH1, 9p]
Tune in to find out who will be crowned the winner of season 11! Will it be Yvie Oddly? Brooke Lynn Hytes? Silky Nutmeg Ganache? A’keria Davenport? Who ever it turns out to be, you can expect to watch some killer lip sync battles.

ALSO ON TAP TONIGHT:

  • Speaking of lip sync battles, there will definitely be some of them on the actual show called Lip Sync Battle, now on Paramount. It returns from its mid-season five break with Jason Schwartzman vs. Big Bird — one’s a weird, wiry muppet and the other’s… well, you can see where we’re going with that.
  • It’s a Whitlock High talent show and we’ll give you one guess how Jack feels about that — especially when he needs a winner to replace his broken laptop… whaaaat? On A.P. Bio. On NBC.
  • If you are looking to stream some broad comedy about a Mandarin translator from halfway around the world, well, that’s some very specific parameters that make it easy to narrow it down. Coincidentally, Netflix today released the Indian import Chopsticks, starring Mithila Palkar and Abhay Deol.
