TV Watch List: Tuesday, Aug. 13
Metro’s Tuesday night TV breakdown.
REALITY. This show is about pretty much exactly what its title implies. A group of Amish dudes in Lancaster, Pa., patrol like the Luddite version of Tony Soprano and his gang, making sure nobody makes any trouble. What kind of trouble a bunch of people who use a horse and buggy to get around could possibly get up to, we don’t know.
Season Premiere, 9 p.m, DSC
‘Top Ten Sharkdown’
EDUCATIONAL. Shark Week might be over but that doesn’t mean you have to wait a whole year to get your fix of the most terrifying beast o’ the high seas. This special counts down the “top 10 shark attacks of the 21st century.” Sharks are so hot right now.
7 p.m., ANIMAL
‘Catfish: The TV Show’
REALITY. This show is so full of drama, it necessitates a mid-season reunion. In this special, catfishers and catfish-ees from the first half of this season get together to talk about, mostly, how weird that thing that happened between them was.
10 p.m., MTV
‘Heroes of Cosplay’
REALITY. This one’s for the nerds! In the series premiere of a new show about super fanboys, a group of cosplaying fans prepare for the debut of Wizard World in Portland, Ore. Oh man.
Series Premiere, 10:30 p.m., SYFY
