What’s Worth Watching: ‘Suits’, the ‘CMA Music Festival’, ‘Koko-the Gorilla Who Talks’ and more for Wednesday, August 3.
Suits (9/8c, USA): You didn’t think they’d keep Mike (Patrick J. Adams) behind bars all season, did you? As the season’s plot moves forward, our favorite faux lawyer considers a deal that could take considerable time off his sentence, while Jessica (Gina Torres) and Louis (Rick Hoffman) contend with new tenants taking over the firm’s digs. Followed by another episode of the summer’s most challenging series, Mr. Robot (10/9c).
CMA Music Festival: Country’s Night to Rock (8/7c, ABC): Here’s something new: A country-music special that isn’t yet another awards show. Taped in June, this all-star spectacular from the annual music fest features solo acts (Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban, Jason Aldean, Dierks Bentley, Luke Bryan, Blake Shelton, to name just a few) and collaborations, including a Chris Young duet with Cassadee Pope, Steven Tyler joining Martina McBride, a Bryan-Urban pairing, Little Big Town with Pharrell Williams, among many others. Added bonus: No acceptance speeches.
Koko—The Gorilla Who Talks (8/7c, PBS, check local listings at pbs.org): Few animals have enjoyed a life in the spotlight more than Koko, whose ability to communicate with humans through sign language made her a media sensation. Now 45, Koko is profiled in a documentary that takes us inside her life and relationship with psychologist/handler Penny Patterson.
Inside Wednesday TV: Several of Greenleaf’s juicier subplots come to a head this week (10/9c, OWN) as Charity (Deborah Joy Winans) confronts her closeted husband Kevin (Tye White), while skeevy Uncle Mac (Gregory Alan Williams) plots his exit. … David Alan Grier (The Carmichael Show) guests on A&E’s racially focused new comedy series Black and White (10:30/9:30c).
