Metro’s Wednesday night TV breakdown. 

‘Million Dollar Listing New York’
REALITY. In the Season Two finale of the Bravo reality show that we love in spite of all our better judgement, Fredrick returns to New York after his wedding and lands a major client. He may be out of his damn mind, but he’s sort of our favorite lunatic on TV right now.
Season Finale, 9 p.m., BRAVO

‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo’
REALITY. In tonight’s episode, Sugar Bear proposes to June for the third time, but she’s STILL not sure she wants to get married. The mom from “Honey Boo Boo” is fending off marriage proposals — cue the wails of single girls everywhere.
9 p.m., TLC

‘The Challenge II: Rivals’’
REALITY. Tonight, Jemmye’s biggest phobia is revealed when Knight exploits it for… whatever reason. It’s ketchup. Jemmye is deathly afraid of a tomato-based condiment.
10 p.m., MTV

‘Surviving the In-Laws’
REALITY. In the premiere episode of a new series about people who hate their significant others’ parents, a pair of in-laws overstay their welcome. “Tell me about it,” groaned stereotypes of married people across the nation.
