What to Watch Tuesday: SYTYCD Picks a Winner, White Collar's Summer Finale, TV Faves and More
On TV this Tuesday: So You Think You Can Dance picks America’s favorite dancers, White Collar steals away for a while (but cranks out one more episode first) and Barbara Walters reminisces about your tube faves. Here are 10 programs to keep on your radar tonight.
8 pm So You Think You Can Dance (Fox) | The two-hour season finale names one male and one female as America’s favorite dancers, and Carly Rae Jepsen (of course) performs. Cyrus or Chehon? Tiffany or Eliana? Mark your vote in the comments!
9 pm White Collar (USA Network) | Summer finale: At an FBI conference where someone’s trying to steal defense tech, Neal and Peter find out the thief actually plans to pinch something much more valuable. Scott Evans (One Life to Live) and Jason Pendergraft (Army Wives) guest-star.
9 pm Best in TV: The Greatest TV Shows of Our Time With Barbara Walters (ABC) | This two-hour special edition of 20/20 is based on the outcome of an ABC News/People poll. Interviews with stars like Mad Men‘s Christina Hendricks, SNL boss Lorne Michaels, Kermit and Miss Piggy, Cosby‘s Phylicia Rashad, Betty White and L&Overlord Dick Wolf are interspersed among clips, behind-the-scenes footage and outtakes from your favorite programs.
9 pm Go On (NBC) | Ryan realizes his recovery involves letting the group into his life.
9 pm Face Off (Syfy) | Clerks creator Kevin Smith guest-judges when the contestants pair up to create an original superhero/sidekick duo. If I were in the mix, I’d curry the big guy’s favor by bringing to life Juggernaut Jay and Superhumanly Silent Bob.
9:30 pm The New Normal (NBC) | Bryan’s obsessed with fashion (in this case, baby clothes) and Nana’s freaking out (in this case, over Shania’s new school pal). In other words, just another Tuesday night.
10 pm Parenthood (NBC) | Julia and Joel’s son Victor has a tough first day at school, and Adam and Kristina receive unexpected news. Got thoughts about what that news may be? Hit the comments with your theories.
10 pm Covert Affairs (USA) | Some may call this a “mid-season finale,” but seeing as how the sexy spy series starts up again on Oct. 16, how about we just call it a pause? Anyway, following a time jump (get scoop here), the CIA learns that an enemy it wants to bring to justice is hiding in Russia.
10 pm Sons of Anarchy (FX) | Past sins come to light, challenging Jax and SAMCRO.
10 pm Hot Set (Syfy) | Series premiere: In this new reality competition, Hollywood production designers create original movie sets inspired by sci-fi, fantasy and horror genres. First up, the contestants build an alien landscape and then shoot a scene on it.
