On TV this weekend


Summer Olympics, 8 p.m., NBC We get lots of swimming from both men and women, including Michael Phelps' final event, and the U.S. plays Serbia in women's volleyball. Them finally, what we've all been looking forward to: men's trampoline.

Undercover Boss, 8 p.m., CBS If your workplace makes and tests golf equipment all the time, what do the employees do during offsite business meetings? Forget that, what about vacations?

Common Law, 10 p.m., USA Wes admits to Travis he keeps having dreams about Dr. Ryan. Don't worry, man, we were fans of Flash Forward, too.

Doug Stanhope: Before Turning the Gun on Himself, 10 p.m., Showtime If Dane Cook's so-called jokes offended you, you may want to find something else to do when Stanhope is on.

*These apparently ran in Thursday's paper. Sorry about that.


Summer Olympics, 9 a.m., NBC You don't have to wait until prime time today, so check out the tennis finals. If you're not into that, there's cycling, volleyball, water polo and even some distance running. Plus: You won't have the evening TV ruined by nimrods on Twitter and Facebook.

VH1 Rock Docs: Marley, 9 p.m., VH1 They'll need to update this Bob Marley special by saying he was reincarnated as Snoop Lion.

SERIES PREMIERE The UneXplained, 10 p.m., Bio Psychics and adepts help cops and heal sick people. Free enterprise really will replace government services!


Summer Olympics, 9 a.m., NBC If you're not burned out after Saturday's marathon, the men's tennis final is today, plus some basketball, cycling, water polo, volleyball and the riveting marathon. Nothing more engaging than watching someone else sweat and plod in agony for 26 miles.

Secret Millionaire, 8 p.m., ABC The guy who runs Camping World lives in a trailer in Miami. What, no hotels down there?

Falling Skies, 9 p.m., TNT The 2nd Mass moves to Charleston, S.C. But a resistance would be so much nicer in Savannah.

Oprah's Lifeclass, 10 p.m., OWN How to have hard conversations. Like, can you please stop posting about the Olympics? We like a surprise here and there.
