Watch this: TV week of Aug. 26


Bizarre Foods America, 9 p.m., Travel

Andrew Zimmern hits St. Louis this week to sample some local classics like pig snouts, brain sandwiches and pig heart pastrami. We get it, America likes to watch people eat disgusting things. Now is it time for the fall TV season yet?


SEASON finale Drunk History, 10 p.m., Comedy Central

A rotating cast of A-list actors recreate, well, drunk history, re-enacting real historical moments while lip-synching to stories told by inebriated storytellers. Past weeks have seen actors like Kevin Nealon, Jake Johnson, Aubrey Plaza and Owen Wilson present tales about Mark Twain, Lewis and Clark and the invention of Coca-Cola. This finale focuses on the Wild West, with Timm Sharp as a sarcastic Billy the Kid and Horatio Sanz as Gen. Santa Anna. Definitely the most entertaining history lesson ever.

Property Envy, 11 p.m., Bravo

The panelists talk about three properties in Long Island enclave the Hamptons, including an exclusive island compound, a beach bunker designed to withstand all kinds of weather and a 19th century windmill that's been converted to a home. We're not so sure about buying property in the Hamptons these days. Did you hear about the stalker who made himself at home for a month in J.Lo's manse?


Top Chef Masters, 10 p.m., BRAVO

Actor Mindy Kaling (The Office, The Mindy Project) stops by to have the chefs create dishes inspired by her favorite romantic comedies. You mean like a nice Breakfast at Tiffany's? Perhaps some Chocolat chip cookies? A My Big Fat Greek Wedding cake? We could go on all day.


Chef Wanted With Anne Burrell, 10 p.m., Food

Anne interviews candidates for an executive chef position at Boston restaurant chain Salvatore's to oversee operations and come up with some fresh new items for the menu. Would a clam chowder joke be too obvious here?

Supermarket Superstar, 10:30 p.m., Lifetime

Sauces are the product of the week in tonight's episode. During the 90-minute challenge, one of the cooks discovers that more isn't always better when it comes to cheese. A focus group of culinary — sorry, we stopped listening after that "more cheese isn't always better" nonsense.


Doctor Who: The Doctors Revisited, 8 p.m., BBC America

Whovians can get their geek on with this series that celebrates British sci-fi show Doctor Who's 50th anniversary by revisiting old incarnations of the Doctor (55-year-old Scotsman Peter Capaldi was tapped earlier this month to play the latest Doc). This episode spotlights Paul McGann, who played the role once in a 1996 TV movie.
