PopWatch Planner: 'The Voice,' 'Monsters University,' 'World War Z'
Man of Steel opening weekend has come and gone. Was it everything you’re tempered expectations had hoped it would be? Maybe you saw The Bling Ring and left even more in love with Sofia Coppola and Emma Watson. Wait, you didn’t see either? Did you…like… go outside? Really? Was there nothing on your DVR to catch up on? Well, if your sunburn keeps you in this week or your pop culture appetite refuses to be satiated, check out our guide for what to watch and go see this week:
The Goodwin Games, 8:30 p.m., Fox
For real guys, start watching this show! Becki Newton is phenomenal! This week True Blood hottie Janina Gavankar guest stars as Piper’s mom. T.J. Miller plays Piper’s dad, Jimmy, and he’s consistently the heart of the show.
The Voice, 9:00 p.m., NBC, Season Finale and record Inside Amy Schumer, 10:30, Comedy Central
Well, it comes down to this! Danielle, The Swon Brothers, or Michelle? Did we ever think that we’d be pulling for Team Usher instead of Team Adam? Is America still totally Team Danielle? One thing we can all agree on: Team Cher!!
And, after you finish watching The Voice, watch your recorded Inside Amy Schumer, which started slow but just keeps getting better (this video is pretty NSFW)
Franklin & Bash, 9 p.m., TNT, season premiere
Heather Locklear joins the cast! You continue to think about that Weeds scene with Mark-Paul Gosselaar. We keep wondering when TNT will do a combo-show called Franklin & Bash & Rizzoli & Isles.
Hannibal, 10 p.m., NBC, Season Finale
Doc Jensen calls this scary, chill-inducing finale, “A flakey tart of psychological tension, gruesomely garnished with an upchucked ear. It’s delicious.”
World War Z opens in theaters
It’s been a long road getting to theaters, but Brad Pitt’s zombie epic is finally hitting the big screen. Find out today why the zombies can climb like ants!
Monsters University is out in theaters
Fans get to see how Mike and Sulley met and became friends! Although it’s still sort of a bummer that we won’t get to see Boo again (like in college many years later, wouldn’t that be great?), Billy Crystal and John Goodman proved to be a hilarious monster duo before and hopefully they can do it again!
Copper, 10 p.m., BBC America, Season Premiere
You know that early-19th century crime show set in the Irish slums of New York that you’ve been hearing about? Well, it’s back for a second season. Donal Logue is joining the cast! Time to check it out!
