Wow, “Wipeout” is a rerun already. Weak.
All-Star Game (5 p.m., Fox). Baseball’s Midsummer Classic from Anaheim. And this time, it counts! (Dum dum DUM!) I’m wrong pretty much every time I make a prediction, so this time I’m going to say the AL will cruise to another win.
“White Collar” (9 p.m., USA). Season premiere. This breezy FBI caper series grabbed me last year, but its season finale was so lame that I was a little bit wary of going back. But I’ve seen a preview of tonight’s episode, and it’s a welcome return to form, with Peter and Neal tracking down a master bank robber. Count me back on board.
“Covert Affairs” (10 p.m., USA). Series premiere. Piper Perabo (“Coyote Ugly”) stars in this new series about a freshly minted CIA agent and her adventures on and off the job. On its face it sounds like an “Alias” wannabe, but it’s surprisingly good, with a nice blend of smart banter and action, and it’s a contender for best new series of the summer. Check it out. If you set your recordings manually, be advised this episode is 76 minutes.
“Louie” (11 p.m., FX). Louie sets up a play date with his kids with a dour woman from school. Profane, raunchy hilarity ensues. I’m kinda loving this show.
“Dinner With the Band” (7:30 p.m., IFC). With musical guests Lightspeed Champion.
“Deadliest Catch” (9 p.m., Discovery). A power struggle erupts on the Time Bandit, while in Anchorage, Phil Harris fights for his life. Don’t expect a happy ending.
“Chopped” (10 p.m., Food Network). Last week, it was better than “Top Chef.” Two in a row? Tonight’s ingredients include perch, cheese crackers and hard candy.
“Primetime: Family Secrets” (10 p.m., ABC). This looks like exploitative trash TV at its finest.
“Rescue Me” (10 p.m., FX). I’m still done.
“Memphis Beat” (10 p.m., TNT). I checked it out last week. It’s really, really not good. Jason Lee deserves such a better show.
“The Hills” (10 p.m., MTV). Awwww, the series finale. Can’t come too soon. Is anyone still watching this?
