Some good news on television tonight; “White Collar” comes back and I know at least a couple of you enjoy having that show around, the cast of “Modern Family” will be on “Inside the Actor’s Studio,” plus it’s the fourth game of the NBA finals! Yay, basketball! But there’s also the return of the Duggars (just typing that kind of makes me want to dry heave) and she who shall not be accurately named is on Jimmy Kimmel’s talk show. I’m pretty sure there’s other things going on with the world, but yesterday and today I’ve been doing something that basically keeps me cut off from the world for the entire day and when I get home I’m too tired to notice all but the important stuff. Apparently people are angry at that Congressman because he sent a picture of his underwear to an unsuspecting lady? Color me jaded, but unless you get the full Favre I’m not terribly shocked. For the record, though, a good rule of thumb with pictures like that is to find out the preference of your target regarding them before sending them. Easy! But I also think it’s easy not to take naked pictures of myself regardless and celebrities and public figures just keep proving that either I’m very wrong about this or they are. Here’s your Tuesday night TV:
8:00pm: “Jimmy Kimmel Live: Game Night” on ABC
“America’s Got Talent” on NBC
“Inside the Actor’s Studio: The Cast of Modern Family” on Bravo
“Masterchef” on Fox
“Opry Memories” on PBS
“Spouse vs. House” on TLC
8:30pm: “NBA Countdown” on ABC
9:00pm: “19 Kids and Counting” on TLC. One hour fifth season summer premiere. WHO IS WATCHING THIS SHOW?!? And how do we get them to stop so it can go away and stop giving me creepy, shuddery feelings every time I think of it for more than five seconds?
“NBA Finals, Game 4” on ABC
“Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern” on Travel
“Braxton Family Values” on WE
“Deadliest Catch” on Discovery
“Only in America with Larry the Cable Guy” on History

“White Collar” on USA. Third season premiere.
9:30pm: “Out in America” on PBS
10:00pm: “16 and Pregnant” on MTV
“Chopped” on Food Network
“Covert Affairs” on USA. Second season premiere. I love how when these summer series come back, it seems like every one is advertised with commercials proclaiming them to be “the most popular series of last summer!” I have no doubt that this was the most popular series of last summer if the category being looked at was “spy dramas starring Piper Perabo.” Otherwise, not buying it.
