Monday

Monday is the season finale of 3 shows. First up is the 2-hour season finale of Last Comic Standing on NBC at 9/8c. Then at 10/9c, it’s the finales of Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives on Food Network and Fabulous Cakes on TLC.

Tonight is the 2-hour series premiere of Bachelor Pad on ABC at 8/7c. Fan-favorites, arch-rivals, villains and the sexiest participants from the hugely successful Bachelor franchise reunite under one roof in a competitive reality series to compete for $250,000 and perhaps a “second chance” at love. The series begins with 19 of the most unforgettable characters from seasons past living together in the “Bachelor Pad” mansion. Each week they’ll square off in head-to-head challenges to compete for immunity and the opportunity to go on a date with contestants of their choice. The winner of the challenge will then grant immunity to one of his or her dates via the presentation of a rose. At the end of each episode, the contestants will vote amongst themselves to determine which cast members will be eliminated from the competition. It’s hosted by Chris Harrison (The Bachelor host) and Melissa Rycroft (The Bachelor contestant).

Tonight is also the season premiere of Dating in the Dark on ABC at 10:02/9:02c.

From across the country, these contestants bring their own style and flare to the ring. Hosted by actress Brooke Burns, this competition series pits 10 of America’s hottest stylists against each other to see who can deliver the biggest and best in fantasy hair design. Part sculpture and part pop art, each challenge requires contestants to create outrageous coifs that resemble everything from multi-layer wedding cakes to toys with moveable pieces. The stylists then enter the ring to present their hair creations in a fully produced, dramatic and stylized performance. After each challenge, the judges — award-winning fantasy hair designer Derek J, celebrity stylist Lindsay Albanese and a rotating guest judge — critique the designers on creativity, execution and overall presentation. In addition to blow-by-blow drama in the arena, there is also the day-to-day drama between the cohabitating stylists who fight each week to stay in the game and win the ultimate prize of $100,000.

Thursday

Thursday is the 2-hour season finale of So You Think You Can Dance on FOX at 8/7c, and the finales of Boston Med on ABC and Penn & Teller: Bullshit on Showtime, both at 10/9c.

Tonight is the series premiere of American Chopper: Senior vs Junior on TLC at 9/8c. After what seemed to be the end of American Chopper, the hit series returns to TLC in full force with a dramatic new edition – American Choper: Senior vs. Junior. The 13-part series follows the forever feuding father and son as they now go head-to-head building bikes in competing businesses. It’s been a wild ride for the Teutuls, who are no strangers to family conflict. Paul Sr. and his sons, Paul Jr. and Mikey are known for their heated arguments, but last season the relationship exploded when Sr. fired Jr. from Orange County Choppers (OCC). Once partners, they are now fierce competitors at contending motorcycle shops. It captures the renewed rivalry as Paul Sr. continues to build world famous custom bikes at OCC, while Jr. opens up Paul Jr. Designs – his startup shop located across the street from OCC’s original site. And the location isn’t the only rub – Jr. heats-up the competition by bringing back former OCC employees including his brother Mikey, Vinnie DiMartino, Robert ‘Nub’ Colard and Joe Puliafico.

Tonight is also the season premiere of BBQ Pit Masters on TLC at 10/9c.

Finally, tonight is a 1-hour ‘Lost Footage’ special for Bethenny Getting Married? on Bravo at 10/9c, and an NFL football game, Monday Night Football: Preseason: Carolina Panthers at Baltimore Ravens on ESPN at 8/7c.
