Thursday, July 4, 2013: Fourth of July Specials

The Fourth of July: the holiday that makes Labor Day, Memorial Day, Flag Day and Arbor Day jealous. It's America's birthday, y'all, and what better way to celebrate than by blowing up some explosives near huge crowds of people with young children?

If you can't watch a live fireworks show, then the next best option is to watch one at home on your TV, away from any barbecues, parties or other events that might involve human interaction. Don't worry, the networks and cable have both got your back: NBC will air the Macy's Fourth of July Fireworks Spectacular and PBS will show A Capitol Fourth. Both these specials include concerts by "some of America's best loved artists," a title which I previously did not know referred to either Selena Gomez (NBC) or Darren Criss (PBS). Not to be outdone, VH1 is broadcasting the Philly Fourth of July Jam, an annual concert that this year will include performances by John Mayor, Ne-Yo and others.

Swap back and forth between the Macy's Fourth of July Fireworks Spectacular on NBC, A Capitol Fourth on PBS, and the Philly Fourth of July Jam on VH1, all starting at 8 PM. Or, if you're so American it hurts, you can tune in to Impact Wrestling on Spike TV at 9.
