Week In Preview: July 4, 2009 – July 10, 2009

With the recent apocalyptic weather, it'll be no surprise if Mother Nature decides to rain on our parade -- literally. To be safe, tune into the Macy's 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular (NBC, 9 PM) or the Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular (CBS, 10 PM) and celebrate from the comfort of your couch. Bonus points if you can see them outside your window at the same time.

If you're feeling unpatriotic -- or you just really like Eli Stone (ABC, 10 PM), -- watch tonight as Jordan and Eli fight for the rights of three hundred wrongfully fired employees. So maybe it wouldn't be so anti-American to watch this one, after all.

It's an emotional rollercoaster on tonight's season premiere of Ruby (Style, 8 PM). Ruby has lost 100 pounds, but her father's death could present an obstacle to her progress. But apparently a Rascal Flatts concert is just what she needs to keep on keepin' on. To each his own?

Luke Perry stars in the made-for-TV movie Angel and the Badman (Hallmark, 9 PM), and it's a Western. Need I say more?

On tonight's episode of Denise Richards: It's Complicated (E!, 10:30 PM) Denise enthusiastically stars in a video about her "funbags" for FunnyorDie.com. Oh Will Ferrell, your recent influence on the most random shows is truly a great thing.

Several storylines opened up in last week's episode of Make it or Break It (ABC Family, 9 PM), so tonight it'll be time to address the drama. Steve Tanner tries to get retired gold-winner Sasha Beloff to coach the Denver gym, Summer ruins Lauren's birthday dinner (you go, Candace!) and the girls from The Rock attend a wild high-school party. Here's hoping that one of them does a round-off into a keg stand.

And now for something new and different: Jackie breaks a bunch of rules tonight on Nurse Jackie (Showtime, 10:30 PM). But it's all in the name of helping patients, so that's okay, right? Mrs. Akalitus accidentally tasers herself, which sounds really funny but also kind of sad.

Tuesday, July 7, 2009

Tune into the premiere of 10 Things I Hate About You (ABC Family, 8 PM) if you don't care about the fact that this series probably has Heath Ledger rolling over in his grave.

It's no Family Double Dare, but The Great American Road Trip (NBC, 8 PM) could potentially provide some laughs. Watch the premiere tonight as seven families get their kicks on Route 66, starting with a clever challenge at Chicago's Wrigley Field.

Fantasy freaks and conspiracy theorists should check out the 2-hour premiere of Warehouse 13 (Sci Fi, 9 PM), a new series about two Secret Service agents who must keep track of supernatural objects for a top-secret U.S. government storage facility.

The top 12 perform on So You Think You Can Dance (Fox, 8 PM) tonight. Let's hope someone's takin' a ride on the hot tamale train!

We don't know what's going to happen on tonight's Real World: Cancun (MTV, 10 PM), but we can bet that it will involve drinking and partying as this show tries desperately to out-drink the Vegas season.

Thursday, July 9, 2009

Rumors abound regarding the themes and twists of season 11 of Big Brother (CBS, 8 PM). Have's and have-not's? High school stereotypes? Check out the premiere to see if the rumors are true!

Burn Notice (USA, 9 PM) returns after a week off with an exciting episode packed with spies, company secrets, and best of all, a mathematician!

Kat's tats are back tonight with the 3rd season premiere of LA Ink (TLC, 10 PM) and Aubry Fisher (Rock of Love) rocks the boat as the new shop manager. Probably not such a great idea to get on Kat's bad side, but what do we care if it makes for better TV?

Friday, July 10, 2009

Eureka (Sci Fi, 9 PM) returns tonight and picks up where it left off mid-season with Carter's layoff and Allison's pregnancy. Add new love interests and family drama, and it sounds like a good start to the summer season!
