The Most Important Shows on TV: Week of August 24, 2015

Which TV series will your friends (and the entire internet) be talking about this week? Stay informed—or at least be able to fake it—with SideReel's weekly guide to The Most Important Shows on TV.   Switched at Birth (Midseason Premiere) Monday at 8:00pm on ABC Family Why: Bay and Emmett broke UP, which is probably the most traumatizing thing to happen to Bay since she learned she was SWITCHED AT BIRTH. Meanwhile, Daphne is worried her friends don't like Mingo, and someone is pregnant... BUT WHO? Prepare to talk about: How you'd react to any subsequent traumas if you'd been switched at birth (like, "first I was switched at birth, and now I dropped my ice cream cone?!"); how Bay and Emmett will obviously, obviously, obviously get back together, since they belong together (it's true, don't argue); what you think of Mingo (if you don't watch the show, you can't go wrong with just saying, "Well, you go first, because I'm still trying to put what I want to say into words.")   America's Next Top Model Wednesday at 8:00pm on The CW Why: It's the makeover episode, which should be reason enough. The makeover episode is pretty much the only episode worth watching of every season (especially these beyond ridiculous later seasons), plus Hadassah looks like she's going to FREAK OUT, and she's super annoying (and I'm still bitter that they cut the beyond gorgeous Maleesa last episode). Who doesn't love "models" sobbing over a haircut? Prepare to talk about: How they could possibly top last season's beard weave; how Hadassah is just the worst (runner up: the girl with the teeth who cries all the time); who gets the worst makeover (other than all of them).   2015 MTV Video Music Awards Sunday at 9:00pm on MTV Why: Because the VMAs exist to shock. OK, in theory, the show exists to award musicians for their videos (which, as you've no doubt already pointed out, aren't even shown on MTV anymore), but ever since Madonna opened the first one writhing on the floor in a wedding dress singing "Like a Virgin," people have watched in order to see what "shocking" thing happens. In completely unrelated news, Miley Cyrus is hosting this year. Prepare to talk about: Kids today.       Leah E.
