"2012 Olympic Summer Games" on NBC at 8:00pm ET.

"Bunheads" on ABC Family at 9:00pm ET.

"Chicagolicious" on Style at 9:00pm ET. This is just bewildering to me. Presumably they're building off the "Jerseylicious" model, but I wasn't aware that Chicago had a particular "style" that was recognizable as such whereas there is definitely such a style (or stereotype) that represents "New Jersey" to a great many people. Well, aside from Chicago style pizza.

"Off the Hook: Extreme Catches" on Discovery at 9:00pm ET. Series premiere. When Discovery tries to make "cool" titles for their series it's like when your chemistry teacher tried to make "hip" analogies about the way elements reacted to each other to form molecule "cliques", which was one of those words that I always heard adults use when talking about teenagers and their groups but never heard any actual teenagers use it themselves. Anyway, they're catching sailfish tonight probably because they look extra cool when mounted on a wall.

"Top Gear" on BBCA at 9:00pm ET.

Genevieve Burgess hates summer television just as much as it hates her.
