All the world’s a game, and all the contestants merely players. All our recommendations are game shows, so, yes, it truly is Summer.
Holey Moley [ABC, 8p]
Summer programming means American Ninja Warrior-level commentary (two hosts above the action and at least one on-the-ground-reporter) while twelve people…play minigolf.
Family Food Fight [ABC, 9p]
Ayesha Curry hosts the latest food competition. Which family of three will come out on top?
Spin The Wheel [Fox, 9p]
It’s name is simple almost to the point of self-parody, but it’s got the charming duo of Dax Shepard and Justin Timberlake as host and producer respectively, so I’m game. I didn’t mean to do that :(.
ALSO ON TAP TONIGHT:
- Poppy Montgomery gives it another go at a police procedural as Cat Chambers who fights crime on a boat. Reef Break debuts tonight after ABC’s game shows.
- There’s more crime and water sports as Riviera starring Lena Olin and Julia Stules comes back for a second season on Ovation.
- Quirky Aussie comedy Rosehaven decides on a third go-around on Sundance.
- NBC makes it three networks with new or returning game shows — this one is in the latter corner and, while hosted by reigning king of affable sarcasm Joel McHale, The Wall aims for the inspire-able portion of your heartstrings.
