Most of your favorite shows are done for the season. Only a couple are airing their finales this week (Hawaii Five-O, Grimm, Dancing With The Stars, Modern Family, Nashville, etc). Summer TV begins this week. Some of it burnoffs that will never be heard again and others are great summer favorites that fill the void from fall television. Here is what’s on tonight.
Goodwin Games – FOX 8:30/7:30c. The show stars Scott Foley (Scandal, Felicity), Becki Newton (Ugly Betty), and T.J Miller (Chelsea Lately, Our Idiot Brother) as three estranged siblings who return home after the loss of their beloved father and unexpectedly find themselves poised to inherit more than $20 million only if they can adhere to their late father’s wishes.
Motives – ABC 10/9c. They keep saying on the promo that this starts on Thursday but they are airing the first episode today. Soo random. The show stars Kristin Lehman (The Killing, Judging Amy), Louis Ferreira (SGU Stargate Universe, Rookie Blue) and Lauren Holly (NCIS, Chicago Hope). The show is about two homicide detectives looking for clues that will lead them to a murderer. But the twist on the typical police procedural is they identify the killer and victim at the beginning of each episode. As the mystery unfolds, winding between revealing flashbacks and present time, viewers will navigate the twisted and complicated maze of each murder, solving the puzzle alongside the detectives and their team; piecing together more of the mysterious connections that drove the Killer to commit murder. I thought already did this show and it was called Law & Order: Criminal Intent.
I will have a full calendar of all the summer premiere dates later on this week. Until then happy Monday.
