MONDAY (7/19)
  • Behind the Music (VH1, 8pm):  “ is profiled through interviews and archival clips. The R&B star discusses his relationship with TLC’s Chilli.” I’d hate to say things are still “chilly” between them, but…

  • True Beauty (ABC, 10pm):  Season finale. “The three beauties left are paired with celebrities to party the night away. They then don’t get to sleep it off, but instead must film a commercial about Las Vegas.

  • Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files (Syfy, 10pm):  “Two creatures caught on a homeowner’s CCTV are scrutinized.” Can we say Paranormal Activity 3?


FRIDAY (7/23)

  • Eureka (Syfy, 9pm):  “An underappreciated scientist’s anger may be contagious as blind rage consumes the staff at Global Dynamics.” Soon, they all find themselves panting Mel Gibson-style.
  • Whale Wars (Animal, 9pm):  “The freshwater supply dips drastically when the Bob Barker develops a leak.” Brings new definition to the word “plinko.”
