Not to make light of Jason Isaacs’ situation on Awake, but having a dead son in one dimension and a dead wife in another has to make it very difficult to keep birthdays straight.


Not to make light of Jason Isaacs’ situation on Awake, but having a dead son in one dimension and a dead wife in another has to make it very difficult to keep birthdays straight.

On TV this week


Pretty Little Liars, 8 p.m., ABC Family It's a father-daughter dance with Rob Lowe as one of the dads. This can't possibly end well.

SEASON FINALE It's a Brad, Brad World, 10 p.m., Bravo Brad tries to work on a shoot while welcoming guests for the anniversary party. If only the theme of the shoot was anniversary parties!

Lost Girl, 10 p.m., SyFy Kenzi, Bo and Hale are bitten by a giant spider-like creature and try to kill each other afterward. Mostly because they blame each other for not having a giant, rolled-up newspaper.

Smash, 10 p.m., NBC Nick Jonas shows up playing a hot young star, and that's how you can tell this show is more fiction than fact.


Body of Proof, 10 p.m., ABC Battlestar Galactica's Jamie Bamber guest-stars, so the wife will suddenly want to watch this show to see if he's in any shower scenes.

Top Shot, 10 p.m., History The teams have to battle it out with scatterguns after Season 2 winner Chris Reed shows up to talk about shotguns. This will be the most zombie apocalypse-ready episode yet.

SEASON FINALE Parenthood, 10 p.m., NBC Julia and Joel try to cool down after that whole adoption mess. They should've just asked Cameron and Mitchell from Modern Family for some tips.

SEASON FINALE White Collar, 10 p.m., USA Beau Bridges is back to mess with Neal. It's not like he has any work to do someplace else.


SEASON PREMIERE America's Next Top Model: British Invasion, 9 p.m., CW A bunch of British girls show up this cycle, courtesy of Britain's Next Top Model. Apparently America is all out of pretty, dumb girls.

Restaurant: Impossible, 10 p.m., Food Robert tries to fix Del's in Pittsburgh, where the owner is taking out her stress on the staff. Knowing the folks who live in Bloomfield, that's probably what keeps the customers coming back.

Breathless Bride: Dying to Live, 10 p.m., TLC A bride who needs a lung transplant tries to make her wedding as flexible as possible so she can leave for a transplant at the drop of a hat. That would make for one heckuva reception.

Psych, 10 p.m., USA Shawn and Gus team up with Cary Elwes to go swipe an antique dagger. After all, Elwes led three people against an entire garrison of soldiers in The Princess Bride and won.


Parks and Recreation, 8:30 p.m., NBC It doesn't look good for Leslie's re-election chances when Paul Rudd has a big-name campaign manager and Rob Lowe has people looking for her replacement.

Up All Night, 9:30 p.m., NBC Ava and Reagan's show has a new owner, while Chris and Reed try to fix an old motorcycle. So the theme is turning around old clunkers that could kill you.

Fat Chef, 10 p.m., Food John can't stop eating the pizza in his own Brooklyn shop. Hasn't he seen all the rats back in the kitchen? Wait, wrong show.

SERIES PREMIERE Awake, 10 p.m., NBC A police detective wakes up from a car accident living in two different realities: One in which his wife died and his son lived, and one in which his son died and his wife lived. It sounds kind of like a downer, but there's some creepy X-Files-ish vibe to it, so we might give it a try.


Alaska Wing Men, 8 p.m., NatGeo Topography requires Drake to make a landing on a very narrow strip of gravel, which is apparently more dangerous than landing on a very narrow strip of tarmac.

Supernatural, 9 p.m., CW Dean tries to figure out why a New Jersey restaurant's signature sandwich is making people go crazy. Please! Hasn't he ever had a Primanti Bros. in Pittsburgh? Talk about going insane — there are french fries and cole slaw on all the sandwiches!

Gold Rush, 9 p.m., Discovery The season is over, so Todd and Co. talk to producers about how they felt during it. This brings us one step closer to a universe-ending singularity as Bravo and Discovery meld into one network.

Four Weddings, 10 p.m., TLC A Chicago police officer offers edible handcuffs as a wedding favor, officially winning the title of kinkiest guest takeaway.
