August 18, 2011 by  

The best part about this time of the summer? All of our fall shows are about a month away from premiering! But that doesn’t mean there’s not anything to watch tonight! What about a double episode of WILFRED? Or even the recently renewed SUITS?

Keep reading for more!

Wipeout | 8pm on ABC
“Contestants Are Dropping Like Flies”
What’s the last thing that went through the bug’s mind before it hit the windshield? A “Wipeout” contestant! 24 contestants find out what it’s like to be on the smacking end of a fly swatter — complete with bug goop — before taking the three wheels on Driver’s Ed and diving into the Double Barrel featuring Ballsy’s Underwater Aquatic Adventure. Beware the evil sea sponges! The field is narrowed to 6 on Total Carnage, and slimmed down once more on the Wipeout Playset, with only three players walking to the top of the Flume of Doom trying to secure the best time and take away the $50,000 prize in the Wipeout Zone.

So much more…

It’s a race against the clock as Dov and Gail work under Swarek’s expert tutelage in a stakeout operation to stop an Asian gang from killing a snitch. Meanwhile, at Mounted Unit training day, Andy and Chris join the rookies from Division 27 in a competitive equine training event that gets Andy back in the saddle – both personally and professionally.

Wilfred | 10 and 10:30pm on FX
Ryan’s nutty mother (Mary Steenburgen) moves in with him after spending 20 years in a “wellness center” and bonds with Wilfred instantly, adding fuel to Ryan’s already-considerable resentment of her.

Wilfred is troubled by Ryan’s tendency to keep to himself (“People are beginning to think you’re weird,” he tells him), so he sets out to make his human friend more sociable. Of course, Wilfred also has an ulterior motive.
