Thursday 24

“Rookie Blue” (KOAT-7 8 p.m.) Getting another cop show on TV is kinda like getting a third electric toothbrush for Christmas. … Thanks, but I’m pretty well covered.

“Boston Med” (KOAT-7 9 p.m.) Getting another doctor show on TV is kinda like getting a third electric toothbrush for Christmas. … Thanks, but I’m pretty well covered.

“How to Build the Perfect Grown Up” (TBS 8 p.m.) Adam Sandler, David Spade, Chris Rock, Kevin James and Rob Schneider trace their lives and the evolution of their comic styles. … Oh, and pimp the hell out of their new movie Grown Ups .

Friday 25

“Limo Bob” (truTV 9 p.m.) And the Roulette Wheel of Boring Blue-Collar Jobs That Don’t Have A Reality Show lands on … limo driver.

Saturday 26

Dinocroc vs. Supergator (Syfy 7 p.m.) Sometimes the bad stars just align and you get something like Dinocroc vs. Supergator . Individually, these monsters constitute just another couple of crummy Syfy Channel Original movies. Put them together, though, and you’ve got an awesomely ridiculous pop-cultural reference for at least a month or two. … My money’s on Dinocroc, by the way.

Sunday 27

“The BET Awards ’10” (BET 7 p.m.) Queen Latifah hosts. Eminem performs. Even though he’s not, you know, B.

“The 37 th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards” (KRQE-13 8 p.m.) Host Regis Philbin helps celebrate the best in talk showery as well as the soap operatic arts.

“Ellen’s Somewhat Special Special” (TBS 7 p.m.) Ellen DeGeneres hosts a variety show with singers, dancers and “specialty” acts. See, it doesn’t have to be good, so long as it’s “cute ironic”—like selling Rainbow Brite T-shirts at Hot Topic.

“Team Coco Presents Conan’s Writers Live” (TBS 8 p.m.) Contractually speaking, Conan can’t defect to TBS until sometime this fall. Until then, you can watch his writing staff do stand up.

Monday 28

“Huge” (ABC Family 7 p.m.) Nikki Blonsky ( Hairspray ) stars in this new dramedy about teenagers at a fat camp. David Hasselhoff’s daughter Hayley is in it, too. Her bio says she was a plus-size teen model. I guess I would have known that if I had watched the U.K. reality show “Meet the Hasselhoffs.” Which I did not. Nor, I suspect, did any British people.

Tuesday 29

“10 Ways To Kill Bin Laden” (History 7 p.m.) Pile of birdseed + “Free Lunch” sign + ACME anvil. There, now you’ve got 11.

“Louie” (FX midnight) Angry comedian Louis C.K. stars in a new sitcom called “Louie.” Not “Louis.” Why for?

Wednesday 30

“In Plain Sight” (USA 8 p.m.) The shot-in-Albuquerque drama launches its third season.

“The Real World” (MTV 11 p.m.) MTV’s venerable reality series enters its 24 th season by heading down to the Big Easy. Hmmm. A “Real World” cast in a town where it’s legal to drink on the streets. What could possibly happen here?
