Pretty Little Liars (ABC Family): New. Everyone is focusing in on Jason. Plays again later. Last week’s episode, “Save the Date,” replays right before.
White Collar (USA Network): Summer Finale. Neal and Mozzie attempt to retrieve the painting Moz sold before the FBI finds it. Plays again later. Last week’s episode, “As You Were,” replays earlier in the day. As you may remember, I wasn’t a big fan of how last season ended and this season started off. I haven’t completely changed my mind on that, but do think they have done a great job with that storyline that resulted from that. Tonight’s summer finale is absolutely fantastic. So much is going on and the heist element is one of the best they’ve done thus far. Wish we didn’t have to wait until January to see what happens next.
Covert Affairs (USA Network): Summer Finale. Annie convinces a scientist to defect, but has to end up making a difficult choice. Plays again later.
