Thursday 11

“Summer Camp” (USA 6 p.m.) The only thing that could make summer camp more fun is turning it into a reality show competition. And you thought weaving key chains out of those weird, plasticky laces wasn’t a moneymaking skill.

“Airplane Repo” (Discovery 6 p.m.) If you thought car repos were wacky, wait till you get a load of airplane repos.

Sharknado (Syfy 7 p.m.) A tornado filled with sharks? Yeah, you win, Syfy. Best Disaster Ever. Tara Reid is in it? I already said you won. Relax, Syfy.

“Hollywood Game Night” (KOB-4 9 p.m.) What could be better than playing televised party games alongside the likes of Matthew Perry, Martin Short, Kristen Bell and Daniel Dae Kim? … I’ll give you a few minutes to compose your answers.

Friday 12

“The Cult” (KWBQ-19 8 p.m.) The CW’s canceled crime thriller about a cult TV show (called “Cult”) inspiring real-life murders gets a series finale. (Note: Unlike the “Cult” TV show depicted in the series, this is not likely to become a cult hit.)

Saturday 13

“Camp Lakebottom” (Disney XD 7:30 a.m.) Why bother going to camp this summer, kids? You can just stay home and watch shows like NBC’s “Camp,” USA’s “Summer Camp” or this spooky animated toon.

“Beware the Batman” (Cartoon Network 8 a.m.) CN more or less reboots “Batman: The Animated Series” with this retro-style superhero cartoon.

“The Haunted Hathaways” (Nickelodeon 6:30 p.m.) A mom and her two daughters discover their home is haunted by a father and his two sons. Yup, it’s “The Brady Bunch.” If half the Bradys were black. Oh, and dead.

An American Girl: Saige Paints the Sky (KOB-4 7 p.m.) The Albuquerque-based American Girl doll gets her own made-for-TV movie. You know Saige is from Albuquerque because she loves painting and horses (and probably painting horses).

“666 Park Avenue” (KOAT-7 8 p.m.) NBC’s “the devil owns a condo” series gets condemned with its series finale.

Sunday 14

“Hillbillies For Hire” (CMT 10 p.m.) Because rednecks apparently need their version of “Jackass.” For hire.

“Adam Richman’s Fandemonium” (Travel Channel 8 p.m.) Tired of choking down eight-pound burritos, Adam Richman gets a new show in which he goes to various sports events and finds out what the fans are eating. Hot dogs and hamburgers, dude. Occasional nachos.

Monday 15

“The iHeartRadio Ultimate Pool Party” (KWBQ-19 7 p.m.) How did Ke$ha, Pitbull, Icona Pop, Jason Derulo and something called Krewella end up in my pool. Now I’m gonna have to get it cleaned again.

Tuesday 16

“Perfect Score” (KWBQ-19 8 p.m.) Oh, it’s not just a dating show: You can win cash prizes for choosing the person who most closely matched your answers on a compatibility test. Also you’re competing against your best friend. Sounds healthy.

Wednesday 17

“Catering Wars” (Lifetime 8 p.m.) Because viewers love anything with the word “Wars” in the title—even if it’s just fishing or cooking.
