Tuesday, July 7 by

 

Alright, it’s that time of day again for us to provide a handy guide of tonight’s worthwhile television offerings you need to watch. Of course, that’s assuming that you’re not worn out from watching Michael’s all-day memorial. No pressure but if you feel so inclined to turn down "Beat It" for a few hours.  We got your back.

See what to watch after the jump:

NOTE: ALL TIMES EASTERN & PACIFIC!!!

THE SUPERSTARS
Network: ABC
When: 8 – 9PM

Why to Watch It: The six remaining teams compete in a lagoon swim. In other words, Ali Landry and Joanna Krupa will be wearing bikinis. And there’s always a chance that Krupa will cuss out T.O. some more in that sexy accent of hers.

 

 

MAN CAVES
Network: DIY
When: 9 – 9:30PM


Why to Watch It: A dentist converts his laundry room into a vintage Vegas-themed hangout. I can see the guy’s wife now, a full laundry basket in her hand and a confused look on her face. “Honey, what happened to our laundry room? And why is Don Rickles in there??? And what’s a gunt????”

 

 

SOUTH PARK: “FAT CAMP” (RERUN)
Network:
Comedy Central
When:
9:30 – 10PM


Why to Watch It: This is a classic episode of "South Park" with several hilarious moments.. After being shipped off to Fat Camp, Cartman makes the most of his imprisonment by selling candy bars and sweets to his fellow campers at ridiculously inflated prices. WARNING: If you often cry while eating, this episode may hit a little too close to home.

 

 

RESCUE ME “WHEELS”
Network: F/X
When: 10 – 11PM


Why to Watch It: Denis Leary and the boys plan an outing for children from the cancer ward. It just occurred to me that this would make an AWESOME reality show. It’s a good thing that the name Survivor is alread taken because… you know… false hope and all.

 

 

Z ROCK
Network: IFC
When: 10 – 10:30PM


Why to Watch It: This show follows the misadventures of a washed up rock band that has to play children’s parties to make ends meet. Tonight’s episode guest stars Daryl Hall as well as Dave Navarro of Jane’s Addiction and putting-his-penis-in-hot-girls fame.

 
 
GRINDHOUSE: PLANET TERROR
Network: Starz
When: 10:40PM – 12:30AM

Why to Watch It: Though the movie didn’t do as well as expected at the box office, Robert Rodriguez‘s Planet Terror is still Grade-A entertainment. In one standout scene, a stripper with a machine gun leg takes on a horde of interstellar zombies in an explosive and gory melée. I know, it’s like they filmed Sam Raimi’s bachelor party.
