On TV this week


MLB Baseball, 7 p.m., ESPN2 For some reason, Major League Baseball thought having a Marlins game against the Mets in San Juan, Puerto Rico, was a great idea. Even worse, the Fish are the home team. It's not like they played a series at Disney World or anything.

Persons Unknown, 10 p.m., NBC A taxi shows up to take Janet and a guest of her choice somewhere mysterious. Ooh, is this is like America's Next Top Model, where they get to go on a photo shoot and keep all the clothes?

The Wall — A World Divided, 10 p.m. (check local listings), PBS A retrospective of the fall of the Berlin Wall, as told through the experiences of ordinary people. We want to hear from the guy who was bright enough to have a sledgehammer with him.


Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List, 10 p.m., Bravo Kathy heads for Alaska, where she visits her ex-boyfriend, Levi Johnston. Friend! We mean, friend.

SEASON PREMIERE Rescue Me, 10 p.m., FX Tommy has a vision of the Afterlife. As in, Denis Leary won't have much to do when this series ends one day.

Double Exposure, 11 p.m., Bravo Lindsay Lohan has been saying this episode deliberately makes her look bad. Well, that's what happens when you show up 10 hours late because you supposedly overslept.

SERIES PREMIERE Louie, 11 p.m., FX Louis C.K. stars in his own sitcom, about a comedian who is a newly single father to two girls. What a stretch for material.


Work of Art: The Next Great Artist, 10 p.m., Bravo The artists must create a very personal piece that reflects issues important to them. Stop us if we're wrong, but we thought every piece of art did that.

CSI: NY, 10 p.m., CBS Yeah, it's a rerun, but it's the one about the Lingerie Football League player found dead in a hot tub. Awesome.

Locked Up Abroad, 10 p.m., NatGeo Billy Hayes tells the story behind his imprisonment at Sagmalcilar prison in Turkey, which was the basis of the movie Midnight Express. Our feet hurt just thinking about it.


100 Questions, 8:30 p.m., NBC Charlotte and Wayne compete to see who can have a one-night stand first. It seems we're officially not afraid of AIDS in this country anymore.

Rookie Blue, 9 p.m., ABC Rookie Andy realizes she's attracted to detective mentor Sam, which will make those long stakeouts much more awkward.

Boston Med, 10 p.m., ABC Renee Peerless not only has to deal with a husband serving in Iraq, but the knowledge that her unborn baby will need heart surgery shortly after being born. Man, this show has some great writers.


America Celebrates July 4th at Ford's Theatre, 9 p.m., ABC Modern Family's Ty Burrell hosts appearances by Kelly Clarkson, Dick Van Dyke, soprano Renee Fleming, George Lopez, Lionel Richie and Robin Roberts, among others. But this is the wrong day!

Flashpoint, 9 p.m., CBS A nutcase radio talk-show host holds a politician hostage to get even for a murder he thinks the guy committed. And that's why President Obama doesn't go on Glenn Beck's show.

SERIES FINALE Miami Medical, 10 p.m., CBS Proctor and Zambrano consider just how far they'd go to save their patients. Not far, as this is the last episode ever.
