Sunday July 25, 2010 6:00 pm

This Week on TV (7/26-8/1)


MONDAY (7/26)
  • Intervention (A&E, 9pm):  “A woman battles an eating disorder that is combined with a drinking problem.” Those diet shakes can be hard to digest.
  • Rizzoli & Isles (TNT, 10pm):  “Jane’s mother () plays Cupid and arranges a surprise date for her daughter.” She insisted the guy was a good fella.
  • James May’s Toy Stories (BBC, 10pm):  “The host tries to build a record-breaking model-train track that’s 10 miles long and links two towns.” It’s a train even Ricky Stratton and his father would be envious of.
TUESDAY (7/27)
  • Pretty Little Liars (ABC Family, 8pm:  “Hanna’s home life threatens her social status at school.” Don’t her parents know what limited texting will do to her?
  • Warehouse 13 (Syfy, 9pm):  “Myka and Pete go undercover to infiltrate the fashion world after young models age 50 years overnight.” One minute, Naomi Campbell had long, flowing hair. The next minute, she was bald.
  • Cupcake Wars (Food, 9pm):  “Contestants are challenged to make baked goods using foods found at a movie-theater concession stand.” Seriously – what can’t you make with a vat of melted butter?


  • Confessions: Animal Hoarding (Animal, 9pm):  “A man stops supporting his estranged wife’s 87 dogs.” He’s had it with high-maintenance bitches.
  • The Real World: New Orleans (MTV, 10pm):  “A dark secret from Jemmye’s past surfaces.” And you thought her name was really spelled that way.
  • Monsters Inside Me (Animal, 10pm):  “An Iraq War veteran with a foot-long worm inside his body.” That foot-long object will cost more than $5 to remove.


  • Project Runway (Lifetime, 9pm):  Season premiere. “The style trials and garb barbs return when Season 8 opens with a new contingent of clothiers trying to cash in on fashion. New for Season 8: a 90-minute running time.” An extra 30 minutes? The designers will need more than that to make it work.
  • Bethenny Getting Married? (Bravo, 10pm):  “Bethenny and Jason Hoppy delight in their new baby. But while changing diapers and feeding a hungry mouth, they realize that their lives will never be the same.” Before, they were just an average couple living their lives before the cameras.
  • Royal Pains (USA, 10pm):  “Hank treats a childhood foe, testing his ability to put his aside his feelings and remain professional.” Talk about your royal pains.


FRIDAY (7/30)
  • Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta (TLC, 9:30pm):  Series premiere. “A Say Yes to the Dress spin-off, set in an upscale bridal salon in Atlanta. In the premiere, a bride’s grandmother thinks her wedding dress should have sleeves, and she’s the one holding the purse strings.” She’s also holding the key to the chastity belt.
  • Dual Survival (Discovery, 10pm):  “The hosts display how to signal for help and avoid hypothermia in this scenario set in the Pacific Northwest rain forest.” Those books burn quite nicely.
  • Glenn Martin, DDS (Nick, 10:30pm):  “Glenn becomes a superhero known as the Tooth Fairy after he loses the ability to feel pain.” The winged costume won’t spare him from feeling humiliation though.


SUNDAY (8/1)
  • Drop Dead Diva (Lifetime, 9pm):  “Jane asks Hank the bailiff out on a date.” She was convinced he was waving at her when he raised his right hand.
  • Mad Men (AMC, 10pm):  “The agency’s Christmas party is nearly spoiled by the late arrival of a surprise and not-so-welcome visitor.” It’s so like the Easter Bunny to hop on in where he doesn’t belong.
  • The Real L Word (Showtime, 10pm):  “Tracy’s sit-down with a psychic reveals insight into her past.” It’s like the psychic knew she would seek out someone’s advice.
