U.S. women’s soccer team heads to Round Of 16


Here’s what’s up in the world of TV for Monday, June 22. All times are Eastern.

Top pick

FIFA Women’s World Cup Canada 2015: U.S. vs. Colombia (FS1, 8 p.m.): The U.S. women’s soccer team made it out of the so-called Group Of Death and move into the knockout stage tonight, with their first game against Colombia. Let’s all take a moment to get collectively mad, again, at the fact that this tournament is being played on turf.

Regular coverage on Monday nights is looking scant for the next few weeks, but at least we’ll always have…

WWE Monday Night Raw (USA, 8 p.m.)

Elsewhere in TV Club

TV Club is in charge of Watch This this week, and we’re telling you all about the best episodes of our favorite web and streaming series, starting with Erik Adams writing about House Of Cosbys. And for the latest Random Roles, The A.V. Club spoke with Michael Harney, who plays Healy on Orange Is The New Black.


What else is on?

So You Think You Can Dance (Fox, 8 p.m.): Yes, we’re still only in the auditions round of So You Think You Can Dance’s 11th season, but tonight marks the fourth and final batch of auditions…before callbacks. Look, it takes a while to sort out the people who can actually dance from the people who just think they can. And the fact of the matter is, even though Paula Abdul and Jason Derulo haven’t quite established themselves as formidable newbie judges yet, SYTYCD is still one of the best reality competition series out there, thanks in part to superhost Cat Deeley. The final auditions go down in New York.

The Bachelorette (ABC, 8 p.m.): As if The Bachelorette needed to get weirder, this week’s episode features six suitors attending a fake Irish wake for Kaitlyn, where they all must eulogize her. It’s every girl’s dream! Then Kaitlyn gets to pick someone to attend a private concert by The Cranberries with. Wait, that is a dream come true.

The Fosters (ABC Family 8 p.m.): Callie’s family helps out AJ, but Callie isn’t so sure about him. Stef gives Lena surprising news about Monte. Jude deals with the aftermath of the shooting incident.


American Ninja Warrior (NBC, 8 p.m.): An Orlando-based qualifying round gives another batch of warrior hopefuls the chance to prove paddle boards and tire swings ain’t got nothing on pure (super-)human strength.

The Island (NBC, 10 p.m.): Y’all, there really isn’t a whole lot of television happening on Monday nights at the moment. So maybe instead, you should have a…


Jurassic Park refresher course

Triassic Attack (Syfy 9 a.m.): So it isn’t actually a Jurassic Park movie, and it also isn’t airing at night, but we make our own damn rules. And this can just be a morning-time dinosaur appetizer.


Age Of Dinosaurs (Syfy, 1 p.m.): A dinosaur mid-day snack…

Jurassic Park (Syfy, 3 p.m.): Time for the main course!

The Lost World: Jurassic Park (Syfy, 6 p.m.): Oh god, why are you still watching dinosaur movies?


Jurassic Park III (Syfy, 9 p.m.): You must really love dinosaurs!

In case you missed it

True Detective: True Detective is back, and sorry, we’re just not over the fact that Rachel McAdams’s character is named Antigone. How is this show real?
