From l to r: Bryan Hunt (Okezie Morro), Mia Lambert (Danica Curcic), Kevin Copeland (Morgan Spector) and Adrian Garf (Russell Posner) seek sanctuary from an eerie and foreboding mist containing a myriad of inexplicable and bizarre threats and puts their humanity to the test in Spike TV's THE MIST, based on a story by Stephen King, which premieres Thursday, June 22 at 10 PM, ET/PT.

“The Bachelorette” (7 p.m., ABC) - After a week long hiatus, Rachel and the guys head to Hilton Head, South Carolina where one bachelor struggles with a fear of heights on the Goodyear Blimp. Later, the guys participate in a spelling bee. As the great Inigo Montoya once said, “Humiliation galore!”

“Better Call Saul” (8 p.m., AMC, Season Finale) - In the season three finale, Kim takes time off while Jimmy tries to make amends. Nacho gambles with his future and Hamlin pushes Chuck to make a decision. 

 “Queen Sugar” (8 p.m., OWN, Season Premiere) - In the season two premiere, Charley and Davis remain entangled; Aunt Violet confronts her feelings for Hollywood; and Micah has a dangerous encounter with a police officer. 

“Wrecked” (8 p.m., TBS, Season Premiere) - The second season of this “Lost” parody begins tonight. In the premiere, the newly arrived pirates attempt to ransom Danny and maroon the others. 

“Big Pacific” (7 p.m., PBS, Series Premiere) - Plunge into the Pacific with researchers and cinematographers and see the ocean’s rare and dazzling creatures. 

“Great Yellowstone Thaw” (8 p.m., PBS, Series Premiere) - This series showcases the effects of premature seasonal temperature on the wildlife of the Yellowstone region. 

“Fargo” (8 p.m., FX, Season Finale) - Gloria follows the money, Nikki plays a game and Emmit learns a lesson about progress from Varga. 

“Boy Band” (7 p.m., ABC, Series Premiere) - The series premiere of a singing competition in which a band of young male vocalists are assembled based on viewers’ votes. It’ll be like watching the creation of the Backstreet Boys!

“The Mist” (8 p.m., Spike TV, Series Premiere) - This is a televised version of the Stephen King novella that was also a 2007 movie. This iteration has new characters and plot lines but stays true to the tone its source material. It's a promising new show, you can read my Gazette review of it here

“GLOW” (Netflix, Series Premiere) - Alison Brie and Marc Maron star in this great new series about the Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling. I’ve watched the first five episodes and thought it was a terrific blend of humor and heart. My review will run on the Gazette website tomorrow. 

“Playing House” (9 p.m., USA, Season Premiere) - In the season three premiere Maggie hosts a game night to welcome Bruce’s new girlfriend.

“Spaceballs” (5:20 p.m., Starz Encore) - A rogue pilot and his best friend team with a princess to help her save her planet from an evil space commander in this “Star Wars” spoof. May the Schwartz be with you!

“The Birth of a Nation” (6 p.m., HBO) - This searing historical drama recounts a real-life slave revolt that occurred in 1831 Virginia, let by a black preacher named Nat Turner. 

“Celebrity Family Feud” (7 p.m., ABC) - Because no one has enough Steve Harvey in their life, his wife, sons and sons-in-law battle his mother-in-law and daughters in an episode entitled “Harvey Family Men vs Harvey Family Women.” Then feel free to watch “Steve Harvey’s Funderdome,” which airs right after “Celebrity Family Feud.”

“Prime Suspect: Tennison” (9 p.m., PBS, Season Premiere) - In the premiere, a young Jane Tennison learns the cold facts of police work; and turns the head of her boss, DI Bradfield, while also impressing her with her instincts. 

“Silicon Valley” (8 p.m., HBO, Season Finale) - Catch Denver comic TJ Miller as Erich Bachman for last time on “Silicon Valley” in the season four finale.
