TV Watch List: Tuesday, July 23

This man is very drunk.
This man is very drunk.

Metro’s Tuesday night TV breakdown. 

‘The Vineyard’
DRAMA. It’s about time that ABC Family came up with another steamy, young adult dramedy worthy of discerning adult viewers like ourselves. No, we’re actually being dead serious — “Greek” was so good. So good. So, we’re hoping that this new show about the lives of a group of twenty-somethings who work on Martha’s Vineyard for the summer is chock full of the sexual intrigue, hardbodied young people, and smart dialogue we loved “Greek” for. We shall see.
Series Premiere, 10 p.m., ABCFAM

‘Drunk History’
COMEDY. Man, we’d love to sit in on a taping of this show. On tonight’s episode, yet another guest storyteller gets smashed and tells the tales of the man who invented Coca Cola and the author who infiltrated the Klan.
10 p.m., COMEDY

‘Catfish: The TV Show’
REALITY. This is a new one: tonight’s episode features a dude who already has a girlfriend IRL but is still carrying on a relationship with a questionably authentic lady he met online — and his real girlfriend knows about it.
10 p.m., MTV

‘Giuliana & Bill’
REALITY. In yet another episode of one of the most boring reality shows on television (and that’s saying something) the E! host and her husband search for a new pediatrician for their kid — which is a task that’s boring for parents to actually DO…much less for people with no investment in said kid’s health to WATCH. Sigh.
8 p.m., STYLE
