Play Youtube Video

Thursday 27

“FlashForward” (KOAT-7 7 p.m.) If you’re a fan of “FlashForward,” I bet ABC’s mind-bending, time-jumping sci-fi series has generated a lot of questions. Well, they’re not gonna get answers, because after tonight’s season finale, it’s canceled.

“Mall Cops: Mall of America” (TLC 8 p.m.) “We’ve got a 10-16 at the Orange Julius. I’m gonna need backup!”

“The OCD Project” (VH1 8 p.m.) VH1, trying to jump on the whole “Hoarders” bandwagon, creates a reality show about people with OCD. ... Wait. I don’t get it. This is VH1. Are these people with OCD hooking up in hot tubs or trying to sleep with Ray J? No? What’s the point?

Friday 28

“Past Life” (KASA-2 7 p.m.) FOX’s “psychic solves murders by regressing people to their past lives and asking them for clues” has already been canceled. But it’s summer, so the show’s back to burn off leftover episodes.

Saturday 29

The Special Relationship (HBO 7 p.m.) The third film in the Tony Blair Trilogy (after 2003’s The Deal and 2006’s The Queen) has Michael Sheen’s Prime Minister Tony Blair paling around with Dennis Quaid’s Bill Clinton.

“Red Dead Redemption” (KASA-2 11 p.m.) FOX airs a half-hour “machinima” cartoon promoting Rockstar’s new Western video game. Sounds like a lousy commercial ... except it’s directed by John Hillcoat (The Proposition, The Road)!

Sunday 30

“Long Island Princesses Unleashed” (E! 11:30 p.m.) Kids of today, I’d like to speak directly to you. Used to be, in order to succeed in America, you needed to work hard, get an education, crap like that. Now all you need to do is be the ungrateful, spoiled, drunken, party-girl daughter of somebody rich and/or famous. Do that, and there’s a basic cable show waiting for you.

Monday 31

“Bizarre Foods With Andrew Zimmern: Kids’ Special” (Travel Channel 7 p.m.) Wait. ... He’s not gonna eat them, is he?

“Dad Camp” (VH1 8:30 p.m.) Boyfriends of pregnant women are taught the ropes of fatherhood in this new reality series. ... And it’s not hosted by Levi Johnston? Missed opportunity, VH1.

Tuesday 1

“Wipeout” (KOAT-7 7 p.m.) The guilty pleasure game show / obstacle course enters another summer season by having men and women on blind dates get muddy together.

“20/20” (KOAT-7 9 p.m.) ABC’s news show profiles real people who dress up in costumes, fight crime and probably loved Kick-Ass.

Goodbye Solo (KNME-5 9:30 p.m.) Ramin Bahrani’s gracefully emotional indie film tale of a Senegalese cab driver and a suicidal senior gets its TV premiere on PBS’ acclaimed “Independent Lens” series.

“Jersey Couture” (Oxygen 11 p.m.) What’s with the Garden State getting all this basic cable reality show action these days?

“Losing It With Jillian” (KOB-4 9 p.m.) The weight, not your virginity, you perverts.

Wednesday 2

“Half Pint Brawlers” (Spike 9 p.m.) You see, TLC, this is how you properly exploit little people: Put ’em in a ring and make ’em fight.
