“Sharknado: The 4th Awakens,” 8-10 p.m., Syfy.
If you want to
recall all the nuances, don't fret: The first three “Sharknado”
films rerun at 2, 4 and 6 p.m. Then again, there ARE no nuances –
just lots of sharks swirling out of the sky, while Fin (Ian Ziering),
April (Tara Reed) and others bash them with clubs, swords and
Now we jump ahead
five years, when the world assumes tornadoes have been prevented and
April has been killed. Never assume: Soon, sharks are swirling anew,
heading to our prized places -- Mount Rushmore, the St. Louis arch
and the Las Vegas strip. The result is goofy, gory and kind of fun.
II: “Celebrity Family Feud,” 8 p.m., ABC.
One game has drivers
(including Helio Castroneves, the “Dancing With the Stars”
winner) facing Sports Illustrated models. Another has men vs. women
in the “Bachelor/Bachelorette” world.
will be there, facing Shawn Booth (whom she chose) and Ben Zorn and
Chris Strandburg (whom she didn't). The guys also have Ben Higgins of
“Bachelor” and Tanner Tolbert, who met Jade Roper in “Bachelor
in Paradise”; they're married and she's on the women's team, with
Andi Dorfman, Sara Herron, Ashley Ioconetti and Bristowe.
ALTERNATIVE: “Teen Choice Awards,” 8-10 p.m., Fox.
John Cena has become
the summer's designated award-show host. Three weeks after leading
the ESPYs, the wrestler-turned-actor co-hosts this with Victoria
Justice. There will reportedly be music from Charlie Puth, Serayah
(from “Empire”) and Flo Rida; Justin Timberlake gets a Decade
And yes, there are
lots of awards. “Pretty Little Liars” leads with six TV
nominations. Selena Gomez and her ex-love Justin Bieber lead music.
Even “Scream Queens” is nominated. Really.
ALTERNATIVE: “Preacher” season-finale, 9 p.m., AMC.
OK, this one won't
be getting any Teen Choice Awards. Last week's episode (rerunning at
7:55) was very gory, and not in a fun “Sharknado” way; it even
felt a beheading needed to be rerun two more times. As usual, it was
also wildly fragmented ... but many of its fragments were beautifully
After escaping from
the sheriff, Jesse now plans to bring God to Sunday's service; he's
found a phone with a direct line to Heaven. Alas, a cowboy gunman has
been summoned from Hell to kill Jesse.
7 p.m., Fox. In a rerun, Lisa becomes a child star; her parents try
to retrieve her.
Night,” 8 p.m., NBC. Contestants include Mario Lopez, Nicole
Scherzinger and lots of comedians and comedy actors – Bill Engvall,
Marlon Wayans, Kevin Nealon and Miranda Cosgrove.
Inspector Lewis,” 9-10:30 p.m., PBS (check local listings). Next
Sunday, “Lewis” starts its final season. First, here's last
year's season-finale: Lewis' first case is being re-opened as similar
p.m., CBS. Juggling satire, sci-fi, drama and more, this is the
summer's best show. Now the Centers for Disease Control has lost its
funding, just as it's needed most – what with alien bugs invading
minds in Washington. Laurel begs her brother, a senator, to help;
Sen. Wheatus (Tony Shalhoub), one of the brain-infested, stops him.
Also, Laurel finds herself closer to Wheatus' aide.
“Match Game,” 10
p.m., ABC. Host Alec Baldwin again has Jack McBrayer, his “30 Rock”
colleague, on the panel. Also: Niecy Nash, Kal Penn, Cheryl Hines,
Mario Cantone and Alexandra Wentworth.
“Ozzy and Jack's
World Detour,” 10 p.m., History. Back in 1982, Ozzy Osbourne was
arrested for relieving himself on a statue honoring Texans who died
at the Alamo. Now he returns there, with his son Jack. They also
visit the Johnson Space Center and the Museum of Funeral History.
