MONDAY (6/14)
  • Little People (TLC, 8pm):  “A county inspector pays a surprise visit to Roloff Farms and threatens to shut it down before the start of pumpkin season.” A reopening appears as likely as the Great Pumpkin’s arrival.

  • The Real Housewives of New Jersey (Bravo, 10pm):  “It’s in the cards that Jacqueline will host a poker night, where Danielle’s ex-flame spills more scandalous gossip.” Thank goodness for staged sex tapes, otherwise these ladies would have nothing to talk about.

TUESDAY (6/15)

  • Hell’s Kitchen (Fox, 8pm):  “A red-team member gets burned at dinner service before the field is cut to 13.” If you can’t handle being burned, don’t step into Hell’s kitchen.

  • Little Couple (TLC, 10pm):  “Jen and Bill celebrate their second wedding anniversary, and Bill wants to make it special, even though they decided to keep things low-key.” The producers said “low-key” wouldn’t film well on television.

They decide to stick around and rent a house with an elderly caretaker ().” Why move to the City of Light when you could live with a Golden Girl?
  • Bert the Conquerer (Travel, 10:30pm):  “The host visit Cedar Point Amuse Park in Sandusky, Ohio, and attempts to ride the park’s four fastest and tallest roller coasters in under an hour.” Without a fast pass, he’ll be lucky to get through one.

  • Mall Cops: Mall of America (TLC, 10pm):  “Mall cops deal with a fire hazard that closes the food court for hours.” Those arguments between Auntie Anne and Mrs. Fields can get quite fiery.


FRIDAY (6/18)

  • Discovery Saved My Life (Discovery, 9pm):  “Profiling six survivors of deadly situations who credit tips they picked up from Discovery Channel shows for their favorable outcomes.” Top three lessons: Don’t chase storms. Don’t go crabbing. Don’t swim in shark-infested waters.

  • The Tudors (Showtime, 9pm):  Series finale. “Henry is haunted by the apparitions of his former royal wives, who gather for what appears to be one last confrontation.” A frightening image like that could send someone into rehab.
  • Holly’s World (E!, 10:30pm):  “Holly goes out on a blind date, and the experience leads her to have a heart-to-heart talk with her mom.” The dating scene was so much easier when you were just sharing your non-husband with other women.
