July 1 TV Picks: ‘Drunk History’ on Comedy Central
TV picks for Tuesday, July 1, include “Drunk History” on Comedy Central, “The Haves and the Have Nots” on OWN and “The Night Shift” on NBC.
Tonight in Prime Time
This series was originally created for the Web but is now back for a second season on television. The series’ formula has different inebriated storytellers relate historical tales from a specific American city while a wide range of actors and comedians hilariously re-enact those stories. The results are pretty darn funny. Tonight’s stories are centered on Montgomery, Ala. Season premiere, 10 p.m. Tuesday, July 1, on Comedy Central (seattletimes.com/tvlistings).
