On TV this weekend
A Capitol Fourth, 8 p.m., PBS Jerry Lee Lewis and Huey Lewis head to the Capitol with conductor Erich Kunzel and the National Symphony Orchestra, Taylor Hicks, Broadway star Brian Stokes Mitchell, and sopranos Hayley Westenra and Harolyn Blackwell.
Macy's 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular, 9 p.m., NBC Two great things about America in one show: explosions and corporate sponsorship. Oh, and Natasha Bedingfield, Jordin Sparks, Kenny Chesney and Katharine McPhee are slated to perform.
Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular, 10 p.m., CBS If all that's just too commercial for you, check out conductor Keith Lockhart and the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra. Also good if you like the 1812 Overture.
SEASON PREMIERE As the Bell Rings, 7:55 p.m., Disney We didn't like high school the first time around. Why would we want to relive it in five-minute segments?
A Gunfighter's Pledge, 9 p.m., Hallmark Luke Perry and C. Thomas Howell are back in a western pitting a sheriff against a land baron. At least they aren't in reality shows.
SERIES PREMIERE I Love Money, 9 p.m., VH1 Alumni from Rock of Love, Flavor of Love and I Love New York compete for a $250,000 prize and the souls of the American viewing public.
Moon Machines: Saturn V, 9 p.m., HBO Wheeeee! Space stuff! So much better than watching a show that is a living example of why the terrorists hate America.
