What to Watch Monday: The Glass House Opens Its Doors, Drag U Is Back in Session and More
On TV this Monday: A new Pair of Kings kicks off a regal evening that continues with RuPaul’s classroom of queens. HBO rolls out a Dog-gedly determined new doc, and those who live in ABC’s controversial Glass House check their stones — and their last shreds of privacy — at the door. Here are 10 programs you may enjoy.
8 pm Antiques Roadshow (PBS) | For the first time in its 16-year history, the PBS mainstay revisits items appraised in a previous episode to see whether their value has changed over time. In related news, your Dukes of Hazzard lunchbox still isn’t worth as much as you’d like it to be.
8 pm The Secret Life of the American Teenager (ABC Family) | After running off to get married, Amy and Ricky face anxious family members at home. Think of it this way, ‘rents: You’re not losing a child, you’re gaining the relief of not having to pay for a wedding!
8:30 pm Pair of Kings (Disney XD) | In Part 1 of the Season 3 premiere, a storm forces Boomer to stay behind after Brady leaves the island for good. But the tempest also tosses Boomer’s long-lost triplet, Boz (played by Zeke and Luther’s Adam Hicks), into the mix. Huge’s Hayley Hasselhoff, Jessie’s Karan Brar and WWE wrestler Mike “The Miz” Mizanin guest-star.
9 pm RuPaul’s Drag U (Logo) | The Season 3 premiere of the RuPaul’s Drag Race spin-off continues doing the Lord’s work by having drag queens teach style-challenged women how to work it. Amen.
9 pm One Nation Under Dog (HBO) | Pooch lovers will want to tune in for this documentary, but be warned: It’s no fluffy, feel-good affair. Among other topics, Dog examines the plight of unwanted shelter pups.
9 pm Bunheads (ABC Family) | From the network: “An unexpected occurrence puts Michelle at odds with her new mother-in-law; Fanny’s students prove to be an inspiration.” One: If the “unexpected occurrence” refers to the event at the end of the first episode, that’s quite an understatement. Two: What’s with the skimpy synopses, ABC Family? Taking lessons from Mad Men?
9 pm Eureka (Syfy) | Getting dosed with a smart drug causes Carter’s genius to careen out of control. But I’m sure it’ll be OK; after all, things turned out great for Charlie and Algernon, right?
9 pm Top Gear (BBC America) | Jeremy enjoys the Rolls-Royce Phantom and Richard reminisces about Rover’s classic P5. And in a creative alternative to traditional campaigning, a group of politicians race to decide a General Election.
10 pm The Glass House (ABC) | After enduring weeks of litigation in which CBS claimed this new series is a bit too much like Big Brother, ABC opens the doors to its Glass House, in which 14 players live and compete for a quarter million dollars in a hi-tech home that allows viewers to see pretty much everything — and to have a hand in each week’s elimination. Does CBS’ claim hold water? Watch and judge for yourself.
10 pm Teen Wolf (MTV) | The new shape-shifter continues its gory work.
