The Cyclone at Coney Island, the world’s most famous wooden rollercoaster, opened on this date in 1927. It is both an official New York City landmark and a National Historic Landmark.
US Olympic Trials (NBC 8pm) Swimming: Live from Omaha, Nebraska
They’re holding them in Omaha so that Michael Phelps can chow down on a cow or two in between laps.
Hell’s Kitchen (Fox 8pm) The contestants prepare food for UFC fighter Tito Ortiz and former boxer Sugar Ray Leonard.
Sadly, Tito and Sugar Ray will be too busy battling food poisoning to beat the crap out of the contestants for their half-assed presentations.
Pretty Little Liars (ABC Family 8pm) Hanna’s visits with Mona do not sit well with Caleb; Aria dreads telling Ella that Byron is dating Meredith; Spencer seeks the truth about Melissa.
So. Many. Names.
MasterChef (Fox 9pm) The cooks must prepare a high quality dish using $20 worth of ingredients; during the elimination round the cooks try to recreate their favorite desserts.
Frankie’s favorite dessert is spaghetti. He’s not a one-trick-pony, he just really, really likes pasta.
The Real Housewives of Orange County (Bravo 9pm) Drama continues at Heather’s party; Sarah acts strangely; Tamra and Gretchen commemorate their new friendship with a gift; Jim confronts Terry about calling Alexis phony; Vicki and Tamra fight.
It’s not a real episode of RHOC if Vicki doesn’t make this face at least once.
Design Star (HGTV 9pm) Designers must create a party lounge that pays homage to Hollywood eras.
The casting couch features prominently in each design.

In which the girls simulate making Abby a sammich and those whose sammichs are found lacking are slaughtered in a variety of creatively soul-crushing ways.
Teen Mom (MTV 10pm) Gary and Leah visit Amber in rehab; Farrah dates her neighbor; Maci goes on Ryan’s family vacation; Catelynn and Tyler consider allowing Butch to move in.
The key word here being “consider.” Because, unlike the people who spawned them, Catelynn and Tyler aren’t fucking idiots.
Glee Project (Oxygen 10pm) The group’s sultry mash-up of ”Moves Like Jagger” and ”Milkshake” leaves some contenders squirming.
And not in a sexy way.
Craft Wars (TLC 10pm) The crafters must create a playhouse by using school supplies.
Hosted by Tori Spelling.
Looks like those gift-wrapping rooms had an effect on her psyche after all.
