How far will contestants go for some grub?

TUESDAY

In a World Like This, Backstreet Boys

Backstreet’s back all right! Well at least since their 2009 album This is Us. Hey, four human years is a long time in boy band years. This album features all founding members, including Kevin Richardson, who left the group in 2006. Check out their lead single, ”In a World Like This,” here

THURSDAY

2013 Young Hollywood Awards, 8 p.m., The CW

Watch the young and hopelessly beautiful together in one room! Judging by last year’s guests and honorees —  Twilight stars, Ginnifer Goodwin, and Asa Butterfield — this one’s sure to be as star-studded.

FRIDAY

Sharknado, midnight showings at Regal Theaters

This summer’s most awesomely bad movie hits the big screen. Go for some good group-think fun.
