Allison DeBona and Christiana Bennett prepare for another grueling season of missteps in Breaking Pointe.

On TV this week


SEASON PREMIERE Breaking Pointe, 9 p.m., CW Auditions for Cinderella begin, which is sure to kick off a whole new season of people getting along and working together. Or re-enacting the insanity of Black Swan.

SERIES PREMIERE Supermarket Superstar, 10 p.m., Lifetime It's like Shark Tank, if Shark Tank was about pitching ideas for new processed foods. Winners get their products stocked on A&P shelves, which means they pretty much remain unknown.

Mistresses, 10 p.m., ABC Savi decides she's going to try to stay with Harry. That all may change in a few months when Dom's baby is born, but hey, carpe diem, you know?

Below Deck, 10 p.m., Bravo There's an alarm aboard the ship, which probably used to be no big deal. Then cruise ships started capsizing, losing their plumbing systems and catching on fire. They probably take them a little more seriously these days.


Extreme Weight Loss, 8 p.m., ABC A 5-foot-4, 290-pound nurse tells people they need to live healthier lifestyles. Yeah, we see what they did there.

Interior Therapy With Jeff Lewis, 9 p.m., Bravo A celebrity reporter gets a home makeover after she loses her job. Because it's not like she could pay to have her home remodeled.

SERIES PREMIERE The Vineyard, 10 p.m., ABC Family A bunch of people in their 20s hang out on Martha's Vineyard for fun and adventure. For more on this, check out Savage Steve Holland's One Crazy Summer on Amazon Prime or Netflix.

Catering Wars, 10 p.m., Lifetime As if catering a Botox party wasn't enough to make you want to bleach your own eyeballs, one event is doing that naked sushi thing, where you eat sushi off a naked woman. Imagine what the alien archaeologists will say about this culture 30 million years from now.


SEASON FINALE Chef Robli & Co., 8 p.m., Bravo Sports Illustrated swimsuit model Chrissy Teigen celebrates her 27th birthday with husband John Legend, and Roble gets to cook up some crabs for them. No, the shellfish.

Baby Daddy, 8:30 p.m., ABC Family Tucker starts dating an old girlfriend who happens to be Ben's boss. Now he has two reasons to be resentful.

SERIES PREMIERE Spell-Mageddon, 9 p.m., ABC Family Trying to remember how to spell onomatopoeia is hard enough, but try doing it while being dropped in a water tank or having slime thrown on you. Or being on a show hosted by Carlton from The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.

SEASON PREMIERE Top Chef Masters, 10 p.m., Bravo Gail Simmons, who just became a mom, critiques another round of exceptional chefs, including Bryan Voltaggio, who got his start on just regular old Top Chef. These shows are modeled to run in perpetuity, it seems.


Motive, 9 p.m., ABC A news shop owner gets it in an execution-style killing. We blame the Internet, because it's always trying to kill print media.

SERIES PREMIERE Sanya's Glam & Gold, 10 p.m., WEtv Olympic gold-medalist runner Sanya Richards Ross and New York Giants cornerback Aaron Ross get a show illustrating how overbearing family can be. Yeah, we hate it when some people insist on having camera crews follow us around all day long.

Rookie Blue, 10 p.m., ABC Callaghan is brought in to help find a missing woman in a case that is very reminiscent of a past investigation. Well, given all the cop shows on these days, some of them are bound to feel familiar.


ACM Presents: Tim McGraw's Superstar Summer Night, 8 p.m., CBS Put down the cowboy hat, because this special includes Nelly, Ne-Yo, Pitbull and John Fogerty. The Band Perry, Keith Urban, Lady Antebellum, Taylor Swift, Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley and McGraw's wife, Faith Hill. It's safe to say not everyone watching tonight drives a pickup truck.

Magic City, 9 p.m., Starz Now Ike is trying to rig the Cuban lottery. He really has a tendency to bite off more than he can chew.

Banshee, 10 p.m., Cinemax Carrie ditches the hospital so she can save her family before Rabbit gets too close. Plus, her insurance co-pays are outrageous.

72 Hours, 10:30 p.m., TNT Heading through the southern Rockies can be dicey. If there isn't 3 feet of snow falling on you, there's the potential for huge wildfires. Guess which one they're getting this week …
