WHOA! After last week’s exit by Brooks, and Desiree’s subsequent meltdown, we have no idea how tonight’s finale will play out. Will Desiree actually choose someone? Or just wander off into the distance, sobbing? We do know this: whatever does happen, it will take two-hours (and an after special !) to play out. Go to episode » 8:00PM on ABC Chelsea Lately Apparently Lindsay Lohan went straight from rehab to a guest hosting spot on a show in which the host and panelists are rarely sober. That’s just solid post-rehab planning on Ms. Lohan’s part. L’chaim! Go to episode » 11:00PM on E! Tuesday's Picks Sex, Lies, and Zumba Did you hear the story about the Zumba instructor in Maine who turned out to be a prostitute who “worked” out of her studio, and recorded some of her “sessions”? No? Well then this TLC documentary special is for you! Go to episode » 10:00PM on TLC Drunk History Are you watching this yet? Because it’s probably the funniest show of the summer. In tonight’s lesson, San Francisco is the setting, and Kristen Wiig reenacts the Patty Hearst kidnapping, which, for you younger kids, was kind of a big deal in the dark ages of the 1970s. Go to episode » 10:00PM on Comedy Central Wednesday's Picks Law & Order: UK Let’s all get British tonight! The seventh season of the U.K. version of the American TV staple gets its stateside premiere on BBC America. Go to episode » 9:00PM on BBCA Broadchurch This new series featuring former Doctor Who star David Tennant is centered on a crime in the seaside town of Broadchurch. The show has already been targeted by the Fox network for a U.S. remake in 2014. See? Re-doing TV shows works both ways! Go to episode » 10:00PM on BBCA Thursday's Picks Sharkpocalypse While we’re pretty sure Sharkpocalypse has nothing to do with Sharknado , it still has us wondering what would happen If you combined sharks with other natural disasters. Sharkquake, anyone? Go to episode » 9:00PM on Discovery Friday's Picks What Not to Wear It’s the beginning of the end for this long-running fashion dos and don’ts series, which we guess means everyone now knows what not to wear, and their services are no longer needed. Go to episode » 9:00PM on TLC Magic City We were watching this purely because we were missing Mad Men and that show’s mid-century fashions and cars, and now this series has been canceled and is coming to an end. What now? WHAT NOW? Go to episode » 9:00PM on STARZ Saturday's Picks The White Queen This historical drama is set during the War of the Roses in 15th-century England, as the Houses of York and Lancaster battle for the royal throne, with a focus on the women who, inevitably, control the men. Go to episode » 10:00PM on STARZ Clear History Oh, OK. THIS can help our Mad Men withdrawal! Jon Hamm costars in this made-for-HBO movie, written by and starring Larry David as a business man who loses out on miliions, and sets out for revenge. Go to episode » 9:00PM on HBO Sunday's Picks Breaking Bad Oh man. We’ve been waiting for this for so long, and now we’re almost sad that it’s finally here since it means in eight weeks it will be gone forever! But we won’t dwell on that. Instead, we’ll relish every minute as we pray for both Walt’s comeuppance AND redemption. Go to episode » 9:00PM on AMC Low Winter Sun Perhaps this new series will help fill the void when BB leaves us. Based on a British series of the same name , and starring the same lead actor (Mark Strong), playing an American version of the same role, it’s centered on corrupt cops and the criminal underworld of Detroit. Go to episode » 10:00pm on AMC Talking Bad Yes, it’s a little silly to air a talk show about a series an hour after said show finished airing, but for whatever reason, AMC has decided to air Breaking Bad at 9pm instead of 10pm. Hopefully you’ll actually remember what happened on tonight’s episode by the time this comes around. Short attention spans! We haz them. Go to episode » 11:00PM on AMC
