TV picks for Tuesday, April 16, 2013, include the season premiere of “Awkard.” on MTV, “Deadliest Catch” on Discovery and “Body of Proof” on ABC.
Tonight in Prime Time
This refreshing, quirky little MTV comedy feels like the television offspring of several John Hughes 1980s teen flicks. For Season 3, it’s junior year for the ragtag group of misfits, and it brings all the joys and horrors of high-school life. Hourlong season premiere, 10 p.m. Tuesday on MTV (seattletimes.com/tvlistings).
