TV Watch List: Monday, August 19

“My Ghost Story: Caught on Camera”
REALITY. In this episode, you’ll learn about a janitor’s ghost haunting an abandoned high school. Wait, if it’s an abandoned high school, how would anybody know to that the janitor’s ghost was haunting it? Somebody would have had to have spent a long time in that abandoned high school to know it wasn’t the basketball coach or something. Or maybe they just assumed it was the janitor because it was always so clean? Or maybe the high school was abandoned BECAUSE OF the janitor’s ghost. Yeah, let’s go with that. Or just tune in for the answer. 9 p.m., BIO

“Mistresses”
DRAMA. Alyssa Milano plays Savannah “Savi” Davis on this drama, and on this episode (spoiler alert, if you are amongst the few people who actually watch this show, as we don’t personally know anyone who does) she realizes she may have lost Harry for good. And if you aren’t one of those viewers, it won’t mean anything to you that April will vent about Paul to Richard, Karen will reconnect with Sam and Joss will attempt to help Oliver impress new clients. 10 p.m., ABC

“House Hunters”
REALITY. A couple tries to choose between three houses in the suburbs of Chicago. They want a two-car garage and a master bathroom, but they might not be able to afford it because of the engagement ring that they hope to buy. So that’s either a really affordable house, or a really expensive engagement ring. Based on what we’ve heard from friends who rent in Chicago, it’s a cheap house. They practically give away real estate there. 10 p.m., HGTV
