Thursday 22

“Last Comic Standing” (KOB-4 8:30 p.m.) What, is it summer already?

“Reno 911” (Comedy Central 11:30 p.m.) “The Office” is over for the season. But at least we’ve got new eps of “Reno 911.”

Friday 23

Sugar Hill (TCM 12 a.m.) What do you get when you cross the Blaxploitation genre with zombies? Pure, sweet midnight movie goodness–that’s what! In this obscure 1974 flick, the wife of a murdered New Orleans nightclub owner seeks revenge via voodoo.

Saturday 24

Vinegar Hill (KRQE-13 7 p.m.) This Hill , on the other hand, has no zombies–just Mary-Louise Parker trying to save her in-laws’ troubled marriage.

Final Approach (Hallmark 7 p.m.) Dean Cain, Anthony Michael Hall, Lea Thompson and Tracey Gold star in this three-hour disaster movie about terrorists hijacking an airliner. Guess who plays the terrorist! … Yeah, Hall. I was hoping it would be Gold.

Sunday 25

Shark Swarm (Hallmark 7 p.m.) Daryl Hannah, John Schneider and Armand Assante star in this three-hour disaster movie about pissed-off sharks. Guess who plays the shark!

Recount (HBO 10 p.m.) HBO takes us back to the halcyon days of hanging chads with this, um, recounting of the much-contested 2004 presidential election. The all-star cast includes Kevin Spacey as Ron Klain, Bob Balaban as Ben Ginsberg, Ed Begley Jr. as David Boies, Laura Dern as Katherine Harris, John Hurt as Warren Christopher, Denis Leary as Michael Whouley and Tom Wilkinson as James Baker. If you’re enough of a political junkie to know who the hell Ron Klain is, you probably just got a chubby.

Monday 26

“Wildfire” (ABC Family 7 p.m.) This shot-in-Albuquerque teen soaper about a troubled girl and her troubled horse finally comes to an end with tonight’s series finale.

“Denise Richards: It’s Complicated” (E! 11 p.m.) I bet if I thought hard, I could come up with a “celebrity” less deserving of a reality show than Charlie Sheen’s ex-wife, Denise Richards—but I’d have to think real hard.

“Living Lohan” (E! 11:30 p.m.) Never mind. Turns out E! did the thinking for me. An even less deserving “celebrity” would be Lindsay Lohan’s mom/manager/enabler/pimp Dina Lohan.

Tuesday 27

“Moment of Truth” (KASA-2 7 p.m.) FOX’s hit gameshow about lies and the lying liars who tell them (to steal a phrase from Al Franken) starts up again.

“The Real Housewives of New York City: The Lost Footage” (Bravo, 7 p.m.) Apparently not lost enough, though.

Wednesday 28

“Monster Quest” (History 7 p.m.) In tonight’s second season premiere, the team goes in search of “Mega Hog”—less of a monster, really, and more of a hunting story recounted on the front stoop of your trailer home over a 12-pack of Bud Light. … I guess once you’ve done Bigfoot and the Loch Ness Monster, the field gets a little thin.
