Today’s Top Picks


Love Island

8 p.m. ET on CBS – Series Premiere

CBS is taking a big leap of faith with this new summer unscripted relationship series, which airs a one-hour episode each weeknight through Aug. 7 after tonight’s 90-minute premiere. Actress and comic Arielle Vandenberg hosts the show, which is adapted from a successful international format. The players, a group of singles in Fiji, must find a partner or risk getting booted from the show, and viewers at home likewise can interact to help influence the action.


Farrah Fawcett Forever

9 p.m. ET on A&E

A decade after her untimely death from cancer in 2009, this new two-hour special recalls the iconic blonde actress who had a surprisingly potent effect on pop culture. The Texas-born Fawcett reached superstar status early in her career, thanks to a starring role in “Charlie’s Angels” and a swimsuit wall poster that became a best-seller. Nevertheless, the actress walked away from that commercial success to prove herself as an actress in TV movies such as “The Burning Bed” and the searing play and movie “Extremities.”


The Disappearance

10 p.m. ET on WGNA – Series Premiere

Aden Young (“Rectify”) and Camille Sullivan (“The Man in the High Castle”) star as the parents of a 10-year-old boy, Anthony Sullivan (Michael Riendeau), who suddenly disappears without a trace during a birthday treasure hunt in this 2017 Canadian miniseries, which is making its American TV debut here. The subsequent investigation turns up multiple secrets the Sullivan family thought they had buried long ago. Peter Coyote and Joanne Kelly (“Warehouse 13”) also star.


Bring the Funny

10:01 p.m. ET on NBC - Series Premiere

Comic Amanda Seales hosts this new reality competition series, in which 40 top acts compete for a $250,000 grand prize and the chance to perform at the 2020 Just for Laughs Festival. Two veteran comics, Kenan Thompson from "Saturday Night Live" and Jeff Foxworthy, will be joined on the judging panel by "cultural tastemaker" Chrissy Teigen. The featured talent pool spans the comedy spectrum, including stand-ups, sketch comedy troupes, magicians and puppeteers, among others. Viewers will select their favorite in a live season finale.
