The Bachelorette, Season 7 (s/ABC): Monday, June 20 at 8pm ET/PT (7CT, 9MT)
Ashley and the final 11 men travel to the ancient city of Chiang Mai, Thailand this week. The bachelors settle into their home base at the Mandarin Oriental Dhara Dhevi, and Ben F. gets the first date with Ashley. The next morning, eight men meet Ashley at an outdoor gym. Athletic or not, no one is prepared to learn the traditional art form of Muay Thai boxing. The real drama begins when they learn they will fight each other in an open-air square in the middle of Chiang Mai in front of hundreds of rooting spectators. An air of anxiety hangs over the cocktail party as Ashley feels she is having difficulty connecting with the men. She confides in Chris Harrison what the true problem is - Bentley still has her heart. At the end of the night, eight men will remain. Next stop: the magnificent city of Hong Kong.
Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition (s/ABC): Monday, June 20 at 10pm ET/PT (9CT, 8MT)
Weighing in at 651 pounds, James, a 25-year-old former football player from Fort Worth, Texas, is the most obese person trainer and transformation specialist Chris Powell has ever worked with. James must lose 150 pounds to stay on track in his first of four, three-month weight loss phases. After James incurred a knee injury in high school, his hopes of playing professional football were dashed. He turned his focus to computer work and spent long hours behind his computer, consuming unhealthy food. Chris hopes to motivate James to safely shed the pounds by soliciting help from former Dallas Cowboys star Nate Newton -- who lost 175 pounds after once weighing 401 pounds -- and one of James' childhood heroes, Dallas Cowboys Hall-of-Famer, Michael Irvin.

Despite a brazen and puzzling break-in at Station 4, a seemingly indifferent Murdoch (Yannick Bisson) asks for a few days off. It turns out that Murdoch wants to travel to Buffalo, New York, to help Dr. Ogden (Helen Joy) investigate the death of one of her young cancer patients – a death she suspects may have been a murder committed by one of her hospital colleagues. Ogden’s suspicions are bolstered when a hospital nurse is found dead. As Murdoch and Ogden work together to determine if and how the two deaths are linked, Murdoch can’t help but feel the flames of romance being rekindled. But does Ogden feel the same way? Meanwhile, back in Toronto, Brackenreid, along with Constables Crabtree (Jonny Harris) and Higgins (Lachlan Murdoch), investigates the seemingly pointless break-in and discovers that there is a lot more going on than meets the eye.
