I Hate My What To Watch August 17-23

Season/series premieres: 

The summer doldrums continue with this week’s premieres, which include the debut of a Food Network show about some food truck race on Sunday, the launch of not one, but two shows on tattoos, I Hate My Tattoo and Epic Ink, and we also see the start of the tacky sounding Wizard Wars on Space. America’s Next Top Model also debuts yet another season cycle, and for some reason it thinks it’s the 90s. Well that’s the only explanation I have for the episode title “The Boyz R Back.” On the upside, at least we have the season premiere of Doctor Who on Saturday.

On Monday, CTV’s The Listener ends its rather successful run after five seasons. Although it was cancelled on NBC during its first, it lived on here at home and regularly showed up as one of the country’s top shows each week.

We’re also saying good-bye to Nathan For You, The Audience and Majumder Manor this week. If you’re watching Rookie Blue with the Americans on ABC, you’ll hit the end of the line for now as its having its season finale on Thursday.
