TV Worth Watching
"The Bachelorette" (Monday on ABC at 9 p.m.)
Is this really "TV Worth Watching"? Eh. It is, if it you don't take it too seriously and watch it as a light-hearted parody of modern dating rather than a genuine "journey" to find true love. Rachel Lindsay is ABC's first non-white lead, and she'll meet her 31 future exes tonight on the premiere, which airs after the Freestyles of the "Dancing With the Stars" Season 24 Finale. "The Bachelorette" will move to its normal Mondays at 8 p.m. timeslot on May 29. Want spoilers? Here's the rumored "winner."
"Dirty Dancing" (Wednesday on ABC at 8 p.m.)
Bless her heart, Baby is going to end up in a corner yet again in ABC's new remake of the 1987 classic. Abigail Breslin has the lead role, alongside Colt Prattes as Johnny Castle, with Debra Messing and Bruce Greenwood as Baby's parents, and Sarah Hyland as her sister Lisa. The Catskills await when this movie airs across three hours on May 24.
"Survivor" Season 34 (Wednesday on CBS at 8 p.m.)
"Game Changers," aka Season 34, ends this Wednesday with a two-hour finale, then a one-hour reunion show. There aren't that many game-changing players left to root for, but ... Team Sarah, Cirie, Aubry, or Tai.
"The Leftovers" Season 3 (Sunday on HBO at 9 p.m.)
Next week is the series finale of this wonderful mind-bleep of a show, but we've been told to keep an eye on this penultimate episode. As TVLine teased before this season even started, "Also, if you enjoyed last season's alt-reality, standalone ep 'International Assassin,' then you are going to fall head over heels for its quasi-sequel, Season 3, Episode 7's 'The Most Powerful Man in the World' — aka the series' second-to-last episode ever." The episode is actually titled "The Most Powerful Man in the World (and His Identical Twin Brother)," and here's HBO's synopsis: "On a mission of mercy, Kevin assumes an alternate identity." Cannot wait.
