Sunday TV picks: ‘Whodunnit?’ brings reality sleuthing to ABC
TV picks for Sunday, June 23, 2013, include the premiere of “Whodunnit” on ABC, “Naked and Afraid” on Discovery and “Crossing Lines” on NBC.
Tonight in Prime Time
There is no Miss Scarlet or Col. Mustard, but there is a butler named Giles in this new reality competition that sounds like a live-action version of the game “Clue.” Thirteen amateur sleuths attempt to solve a “series of puzzling murders” and win a $250,000 grand prize. Series premiere, 9 p.m. Sunday on ABC (seattletimes.com/tvlistings).
