June 22--Your least favorite fall shows burn off their remaining episodes while a couple of new network reality shows premiere. It must be summer. Here's what caught my eye this week:
Sunday: "Celebrity Wife Swap" 7 p.m., ABC: Bristol Palin and Melissa Rivers switch families in tonight's season premiere.
"Whodunnit?" 8 p.m., ABC: This new reality series is what would happen if your one super annoying friend's awful murder mystery party somehow got on TV.
"Crossing Lines" 8 p.m., NBC: Let's call this new international crime series "Procedurals Without Borders."
"Copper" 9 p.m., BBC America: Season 2 begins tonight.
Monday: "Under the Dome" 9 p.m., CBS: Ever wonder what it would be like to live beneath a gigantic contact lens? This Stephen King adaptation will show you.
Tuesday: "Rizzoli & Isles" 8 p.m., TNT: Season 3 virtually kicks off. Just watch; you'll get it.
"Perception" 9 p.m., TNT: The sophomore season begins tonight.
Wednesday: "Big Brother" 7 p.m., CBS: Thanks to PRISM, we know that Big Brother is watching us. The question, 15 seasons in, is why are we still watching it?
Thursday: "Independence Day-Saster" 8 p.m., Syfy: The most amazing thing about this "let's save the Earth" TV movie is that it's airing on Syfy and doesn't feature a destructive, rampaging creature that's a hybrid of a platypus and a giraffe.
Friday: "Cult" 7 p.m., CW: Sorry, fans -- this canceled show turned out to be one of those cults that doesn't survive. Back-to-back episodes burn off tonight.
Saturday: "CMT's 20 Greatest Redneck Videos" 8 p.m., CMT: They really could have just called it "CMT's 20 Greatest Videos."
"Do No Harm" 9 p.m., NBC: The canceled Jekyll/Hyde update joins the summer burn-off club.
