What to Watch Thursday: Invest in Bajillion Dollar Propertie$

Your daily guide to the most interesting stuff happening on TV and streaming. All times Eastern.

PICK OF THE NIGHT

Bajillion Dollar Propertie$

Seeso, streaming

Million Dollar Listing is great, but its main problem is … not enough Jason Mantzoukas! Enter this superb spoof of the realty-reality genre — think Burning Love or The Hotwives of Orlando — which debuts its first two episodes on Seeso on Thursday. (Those two are free, while the rest of the episodes will air behind a paywall every Thursday.) Created by Kulap Vilaysack (a.k.a. The Widow Kulap) and executive-produced by Comedy Bang! Bang! Mogul Scott Aukerman, the show stars Paul F. Tompkins as the boss of a real estate firm that caters to the rich and famous. The premiere features Adam Scott as a Hollywood alcoholic, while the second episode brings in the aforementioned Mantzoukas to play a very, um, hands-on photographer who claims to be “good friends” with Bradley Cooper. And while Cooper himself is absent, future episodes enlist such pals as Nick Kroll, Gillian Jacobs, and Weird Al as guest stars. Check out our interview with Vilaysack here for a Bajillion more detail$. 

THE FINALE COUNTDOWN

For some reason, several shows are having season finales on Thursday. Here’s a rundown:

Top Chef

Bravo, 9 p.m.

If the winner isn’t Papa John, I declare a mistrial.

How to Get Away With Murder

ABC, 10 p.m

Surrounded by chaos, Annalise needs to escape. Shondaland can be a tiring place! (Also: read our interview with the showrunner for more hints on what to expect in the finale.)

Colony

USA, 10 p.m.

So … was it aliens?

Idiotsitter

Comedy Central, 10:30 p.m.

Gene finally takes her GED exam. Now the question is whether it will be Yale or Harvard that rejects her first.

POLITENESS: STOPPED

The Real World

MTV, 10 p.m.

The show’s 31st season returns to Las Vegas, which, depending on your tastes, was also the site of what was either the show’s last good season or the first bad one. We’re talking, of course, about that 2002 season, which EW’s original review noted had “an air of grimness”. But if you’re ride-or-die enough to have also watched the 2011 Las Vegas season, then you’re probably going to like this season no matter what.
