Watch this: TV week of Aug. 5

TUESDAY

Interior Therapy With Jeff Lewis, 9 p.m., Bravo

Jeff and Jenni help a couple whose home design is dictated by their 3-year-old child. Listen, if you're letting your toddler take over the house, you need more than just decorating therapy.

WEDNESDAY

Broadchurch, 10 p.m., BBC America

The hype from TV critics has been deafening about this BBC show, which revolves around the mysterious murder of an 11-year-old boy in a tiny English coastal town. Plus, Fox just announced it's making an American version. Watch it so you can inevitably compare the two (we'd bet good money on the original).

THURSDAY

Sharkpocalypse, 9 p.m., DISCOVERY

Hey, it's no Sharknado. No, really, this show sounds way more tame and way more logical. Andy Casagrande and Devon Massyn host this new special that seeks to answer the question of whether shark attacks on humans are increasing, or are just getting more media coverage. Shark Week kicked off last night on the Discovery Channel, so expect to see plenty of shark-tastic programming each night.

Panic 9-1-1, 10 p.m., A&E

Crimes unfold in real time, with real 911 calls as the soundtrack and re-enactments of the emergencies as well as interviews with witnesses, law enforcement officers, dispatchers and callers. Like a train wreck, how can you not watch?

FRIDAY

Perfect Score, 8 p.m., CW

We thought Arielle Kebbel might have a promising career as a CW starlet, with past stints on Gilmore Girls and 90210. Instead, she ended up as a different kind of CW refugee — host of this so-bad-it's-kind-of-good reality dating show. The premise: Two friends compete to see who can pick their ideal mate from a group of 10 members of the opposite sex, who have been assigned dollar values based on how compatible they are with the contestants. So, contestants could end up choosing someone worth $1, or someone worth $50,000. The best part is when those are the two options left at the end, and they go for the $1 dude. Happy dating!

America's Next Top Model, 9 p.m., CW

The models have to walk on a vertical runway in this week's new episode. So now being a top model requires defying gravity. Great.

SUNDAY

The Newsroom, 10 p.m., HBO

Aaron Sorkin continues to have immaculate 20/20 hindsight on the second season of this show set in a television newsroom about a year ago. Right now, it's making its way through the 2012 election, and Sorkin's already angered Mitt Romney aids with a recent episode in which a reporter is kicked off a Romney press bus because aides for his campaign weren't a fan of The Newsroom's news program. Gee, the guy who wrote The West Wing is showing a liberal bias? We're shocked.
