What's Worth Watching: 'Jimmy Kimmel Live', 'Cheer Squad', 'Odd Mom Out' and more for Monday, August 22.
Jimmy Kimmel Live (11:35/10:35c, ABC): With the Olympics over, the games begin again in the late-night wars—with the glaring exception of Comedy Central's gone-too-soon The Nightly Show. Making her first appearance on a late-night talk show since accepting the Democratic nomination for president, Hillary Clinton stops by to mix it up Kimmel. The other Jimmy (NBC's Fallon) welcomes show-biz and sports royalty, with Robert DeNiro and golfer Jordan Spieth among the guests. And not to be outdone, CBS's The Late Show With Stephen Colbert books lightning-rod comedian Amy Schumer, who set Twitter on fire last week with suggestions (false, it thankfully turned out) that she might be ditching her own Comedy Central show for good.
Cheer Squad (10/9c, Freeform): While cheerleaders wait for the day when their ultra-competitive sport may be included at a future Olympics, fans can binge on this new reality series, airing every weeknight over the next two weeks through Sept. 2. This isn't about just any cheer squad. The show follows two-time world champions The Great White Sharks as they rebuild and regroup to devour all rivals.
Odd Mom Out (10/9c, Bravo): An all-too-typical New York City nightmare unfolds in this barbed comedy as Jill (Jill Kargman) bundles the family into the car for a drive to a Hamptons party—only to be derailed by a colossal traffic jam. Adding to the misery: Jill's run-in with Molly Ringwald, playing the idol of Jill's nemesis-ter-in-law Brooke (Abby Elliott).
Inside Monday TV: The latest in a line of pint-sized cooking competitions, Food Network's Food Network Star Kids (8/7c) pits 10 young chefs, ages 9 to 13, in a contest to see who has both the kitchen and camera chops to earn his or her own show on FoodNetwork.com. … In the season finale of Freeform's Guilt (9/8c), Grace (Daisy Head) awaits the London court's verdict on whether she is, in fact, guilty of Molly Ryan's murder. … Tyler Perry inflicts his style of drama on TLC in that channel's first scripted series, Too Close to Home (9/8c), about a political up-and-comer (Danielle Savre) who flees scandal in Washington, D.C., to reunite with her sisters in her hometown, ironically (we assume) named Happy, Alabama. … Like a Shark Tank for wilderness lovers, CNBC's Adventure Capitalists (10/9c) sends its investors outside to hear pitches on outdoor recreational gizmos like an electric propeller for paddleboards and windproof tents.
