What to Watch Tonight: Burn Notice Intervention, Young Hollywood Awards, Hero Finale and More

Burn Notice - Season 7On TV this Thursday: The Young Hollywood Awards celebrate notable newbies, Burn Notice misplaces its loyalty, The Hero is a true man (or woman) of the people and Sullivan & Son feels the free love. Here are 10 programs to keep on your radar.

8 pm 2013 Young Hollywood Awards (The CW) | Ah, youth. Kit Harrington (Game of Thrones), Lucy Hale (Pretty Little Liars), Tatiana Maslany (Orphan Black) and AnnaSophia Robb (The Carrie Diaries) are among the honorees at this year’s Young Hollywood Awards (which is put on by Penske Media Corporation, TVLine’s parent company.)

8 pm The Hero (TNT) | Season finale: As the contestants are reunited, the rigorous reality competition’s winner is chosen by fan vote. (Not yet renewed.)

9 pm Burn Notice (USA Network) | When Michael begins to feel an affinity for the organization he’s supposed to infiltrate, it’s up to Sam to help him gain clarity.

9 pm Project Runway (Lifetime) | The designers trek to Coney Island, where they play carnival games to win materials for this week’s challenge. Kelly Osbourne (Fashion Police) guest-judges.

9 pm Motive (ABC) | In this week’s case — which ABC’s synopsis deems “Hitchcockian” — a murder may turn out to be a healing act. Brothers & Sisters alum/Burn Notice baddie John Pyper-Ferguson guest-stars.

9:30 pm The Mindy Project (Fox) | Repeat to Revisit: This episode, directed by B.J. Novak (The Office) is worth a re-watch for Danny’s bumbling local news health minute (“Hand me the vulva”) alone.

10 pm Rookie Blue (ABC) | When Swarek and his old training officer team up on an old missing persons case, the younger cop’s no longer sure he wants to continue in his mentor’s footsteps. Al Sapienza (Person of Interest) guest-stars.

10 pm Hollywood Game Night (NBC) | Tom Arnold (Sons of Anarchy), former Clooney arm candy/pro wrestler Stacy Keibler, Patricia Heaton (The Middle), Rose Byrne (Damages), Anthony Anderson (Law & Order) and Jamie-Lynn Sigler (The Sopranos) take part in tonight’s fun, which includes identifying iconic movie moments in which actors are replaced with cats.

10 pm Wilfred (FX) | Ryan tries progressive psychotherapy to better understand past trauma.

10 pm Sullivan & Son (TBS) | The death of Councilman Ryan inspires Jack to run for the open seat; Owen and Ahmed woo an attractive hippie until she suggests a free-love encounter for all three of them.

  • Is anyone else watching “Motive” on ABC? Just out of curiosity, I watched one On Demand the other night and it was really, really, good! So, if you like a good “police procedural” type of mystery show, check it out! (And, no, I don’t work for ABC or anything like that, I just like a good mystery!! ;-)

  • Wow. Has Hollywood Game Night run out of guests or what? That’s one pitiful lineup.

    • I was thinking the same thing! The last two weeks have been funny and fairly relevant people, but tonight’s group doesn’t really make me want to watch.

  • Yeesh. Seeing how I’m not sure if Beyond Scared Straight is on tonight, think I’ll just catch up on DVDs.

  • MOTIVE IS AN EXCELLENT SHOW — ACTUALLY IT REALLY IS ONE OF THE BEST SUMMER SHOWS ON THE AIR!! My hubby and i really look forward to wartching it each week. Hope it returns next summer. As for Hollywood Game Night — why is still on the air? NOT worth anyone’s time.

    • Of course Motive is excellent, it’s Canadian! We have a totally different production model than your networks. Quality is what we strive for, not satisfying faceless corporate sponsors that are clueless about the arts!
