The Mayflower set sail from Plymouth, England, on this date in 1620.
America’s Got Talent (NBC 8pm) The judges reveal the Top Six; Train performs.
Here’s hoping Pat Monahan keeps his “untrimmed chest” well and truly covered during his band’s performance, but his predilection for deep-V shirts makes this an unlikely prospect.
Dear Pat Monahan, You are not as sexy as you thought you were back in 1998. Sincerely, the World.
The Democratic National Convention (PBS 8pm, etc., etc.) The 2012 Democratic National Convention from Charlotte, N.C.
It’s going to be a loooong two months until the Presidential election.
2012 MTV Music Video Awards (MTV, MTV2, VH1, 8pm) From the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
Do you ever wonder what happens when Taylor Swift and Kanye West see each other on the red carpet? Is there like an awkward silence, or embarrassed little smiles/shrugs, or what?
Rookie Blue (ABC 9pm) Finale: A violent pedophile escapes during an emergency hospital visit and abducts a girl; Andy faces a serious decision; Chris considers a transfer.
Renewal status: Not only has it been renewed for a fourth season, but they are looking for two new Canadian actors to become series regulars (I guess the show is from Canada, which I did not know.) So if you have any actor friends north of the border, spread the word.
Big Brother (CBS 9pm) The contestants take part in the head of household competition.
Project Runway (Lifetime 9pm) The designers must sell goods on the street in order to earn money to buy fabric for the challenge.
You’ll notice that it says goods, not services.
4 Weddings… (TLC 9pm) Lori’s salsa and rumba dance get her celebration started while Shannon’s Jersey Shore theme keeps the party fist pumping all night long. Tracey flaunts three gowns at her red carpet nuptials and Tatyanna is all about the coral decor.
How do you ensure that your guests really get the full experience at a Jersey Shore Themed wedding? Attack them with a spray tan and a syphilis injection as they enter the reception? I have so many questions!
Texas Car Wars (The Discovery Channel 10pm) Premiere: The rivalries begin as several salvage crews battle over a 1964 Thunderbird, a 2002 Nissan Xterra, and a 1955 Ford Fairlane.
This show lost all credibility with “Nissan Xterra.”
The Real L World (Showtime 10pm) Finale: Episode — Perfect Day
Renewal status: I don’t know, but it’s a show about lesbians and apparently boobies are shown most every episode — I’m guessing that their 18 – 35 year-old male viewership numbers are too high to not give this show another season.
Collection Intervention (SyFy 10pm) Carol wants a solution to Mike’s most complete Battlestar Galactica collections; Holly believes Scott’s Japanese robots are getting in the way.
You say robots, he says girlfriends. There’s really no problem as long as everyone involved is a consenting human-or-human-simulating-artifically-intelligent-pleasure-bot.
