There have certainly been better weeks. With the normal-style performers turning in mostly sub-par performances, it was left to the weirdos to subvert the format and carry the week. Joe Randazzo and Barbara Dunkleman were the funniest of the normal jokesters. But everyone below about the midpoint of the list was disappointing.

No new Powers watched this week due to circumstances, but we're all caught up on Preacher!
Preacher: "Possibilities" (10% Stupid)
I've been plowing through a re-read of the comic, which is why I'm finding it slightly odd that the TV show is portraying Jesse Custer's moral conflict so heavily. I think it's right for TV Jesse, but Comics Jesse is so very much a character who knows "what's right" (quotes because there's a lot of 90's Masculinity bullshit in that definition) and only doesn't do it when circumstances prevent.
So, remember how nothing's been happening in he WWE? Well, Money in the Bank didn't change that, except for the one thing. And then real life intervened and changed another thing. Or real life changed both things. It's tough to tell.
Another weird week for Lucha Underground. Some solid matches, some interesting developments, but a dead Temple and some odd choices made the whole thing seem a little off.
@midnight is back! And Mamrie Hart was on it! And Mamrie Hart was about as hilarious as a person is capable of being on @midnight! Damn near perfect, if you ask me. Horatio Sanz was excellent as usual, and Doug Benson was solid. We really don't get into sub-par performances until the last three. I like Matt Walsh in other stuff, but he never seems like a great fit for this show. Jay Oakerson was true to himself, and that's not super-pleasant. Nick Swardson was better than usual, rising to the level of bearable.

Another week of nothing happening in the WWE.
Don't get me wrong. Some entertaining stuff happened on the shows. The New Day did an extended riff on a pair of shoes nobody likes that I only figured out once I looked it up on the Internet because I'm old. Some of the never ending combinations of Cesaro/Zayn/Owens/Ambrose/Jericho/Del Rio that kept interacting over and over again were fun. Seth Rollins was great on Raw.
But it was still just treading water to Money In The Bank, which I suppose I should predict out.
Dudley Boys vs. Lucha Dragons
The problem with one match for the entire show is if the entire match isn't good (see Season 1's All Night Long match between Mundo and Puma) or isn't chock full of dudes (Aztec Warfare), then the rough patches drag the show down.
Six to Survive had a lot of rough patches.
Swearing and darkness and streaming rights, oh my! The off-season will be filled by Powers and Preacher and goddammit I'm gonna finish Daredevil Season 2 yes I am.
Powers: "Funeral Of The Century" (15% Stupid)
In the past two weeks, a total of two things have happened in ten hours of WWE main roster programming. AJ Styles turned heel, beat up John Cena and joined The Clerb, and The Clerb set its sights on the tag team champions.
