What’s on TV Tuesday: ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ and ‘Last Kids on Earth’

What’s on TV Tuesday: ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ and ‘Last Kids on Earth’


BACHELOR IN PARADISE 8 p.m. on ABC. Summer is officially over, which means it’s time for “Bachelor in Paradise” to come to an end. In the three-hour finale the remaining four couples will go to the fantasy suites to have serious discussions about their futures. In the end, who will leave paradise in love? Who will be engaged? Who will go home heartbroken? The episode wraps up with the cast coming together to discuss the highs and lows of the season. The host, Chris Harrison, promises “an explosive reunion show” with confrontations that were left unresolved on the beach in Mexico. Also stay tuned until the end when Harrison announces the next Bachelor.

BRING THE FUNNY 10 p.m. on NBC. The final contestants of the comedy show hosted by Amanda Seales (“Insecure”) will find out who won the competition. Last week, the judges, Kenan Thompson, Chrissy Teigen and Jeff Foxworthy, gave their feedback to the last five acts. But the final decision was up to America to vote on — deciding which comedy act deserves to win the $250,000 prize and the opportunity to perform at the Just for Laughs comedy festival in Montreal.

HAIL, CAESAR! (2016) 10:40 p.m. on HBO. George Clooney plays a hammy mid-20th-century movie star who gets kidnapped in this Coen Brothers film, which sees those sibling filmmakers lovingly poking fun at old-time Hollywood. The ensemble cast also brings together Josh Brolin, Scarlett Johansson and Channing Tatum. “It’s a typically sly, off-center comedy,” Manohla Dargis wrote in her review for The New York Times. “Some of it is familiar and satisfyingly funny,” she added, “even if there are laughs and bits that seem as if they were written to amuse only the Coens and the Turner Classic Movies crowd.”

THE LAST KIDS ON EARTH Stream on Netflix. Jack Sullivan (Nick Wolfhard) and his friends loved playing video games, eating candy and hanging out in their treehouse. But when they suddenly find themselves in a post-apocalyptic world, the crew is thrown into a real-life video game where they have to stick together to defeat monsters and zombies. The show, based off a book series by Max Brallier, features Mark Hamill, Rosario Dawson and Keith David.

TALL GIRL Stream on Netflix. Like most teenage girls, Jodi (Ava Michelle) is not comfortable in her own skin. The only difference for Jodi is that at 6-foot-1, she towers over every person in her high school. But when a male Swedish exchange student, who happens to be taller than her, transfers to her school, she is overcome with shyness and insecurity. With the help of her best friend (Anjelika Washington), sister (Sabrina Carpenter) and mother (Angela Kinsey), Jodi works to overcome her fears and finds herself in a love triangle. In her review for The Times, Elisabeth Vincentelli wrote: “Instead of a John Hughes-style satire of class and social divides — not that acute here, to begin with — we get an uncritical depiction of homogeneous entitlement.”
