What to Watch: August 9 - 15

Teen Choice Awards - Monday August 9, 9 pm ET/PT, Global/Fox

I never thought Katy Perry would last. I really thought she would have faded out by now, but not only is she going strong, I've almost started to like her. Is she the George Constanza of pop music? Anyhow, she's hosting the show tonight, along with the guys from 'Glee.' Many teens -- or at least people who play teens on TV -- will be in attendance, but so will Jane Lynch, Ellen DeGeneres and Betty White, proving that some things are ageless.

Bachelor Pad - Monday August 9, 8 pm ET/PT, Citytv/ABC

Another thing I didn't think would last so long is 'The Bachelor' franchise. The show still gets ratings, chatter and tabloid coverage, and now it has a spin-off. There is something so '70s about this premise, I'm tempted to give it a shot. Basically, a bunch of previous season rejects live in a house together and compete for prizes -- the chance to go on a date with someone else in the house -- and then they eliminate people at the end of each week. It's like swinging, with a countdown clock. I'm curious if this will result in alliances 'Survivor' style, with crushes trying to save each other from elimination.

So You Think You Can Dance - Thursday August 12, 8 pm ET, CTV/Fox

The finale of this summer reality phenom that I totally don't watch but probably should airs tonight, which means someone will win. And then CTV will metaphorically clean the stage of any blood and sweat left behind in time to start airing the Canadian version on Sunday. Annnd, see below:

So You Think You Can Dance Canada - Sunday August 15, 9 pm ET/PT, CTV

Leah Miller hosts as the latest season of 'SYTYCDC' (worst. acronym. ever.) gets started with Toronto auditions. Judges include ballroom champ Jean Marc Genereux, film choreographer Tre Armstrong, music video choreographer Luther Brown and guest judge Mary Murphy. Ear plugs, people. Ear plugs!
