Thursday 30

The List with Colleen Lopez: Lyric Culture Celebrates Woodstock” (Home Shopping Network 7pm) What better way to celebrate the anniversary of the counterculture landmark known as the Woodstock Music & Art Fair (it turns 46 in August) than by buying t-shirts on a shopping channel aimed at senior citizens and shut-ins?

Friday 31

“Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp” (Netflix Anytime) The cult hit parody of teen sex movies returns as a series.

“It Goes There: Degrassi’s Most Talked About Moments” (TeenNick 6pm) As the show fades into its 14th (and for now final) season finale, cast members, creators and fans reminisce about he series’ most iconic moments. Don’t worry; it’ll be back next year on Netflix.

Descendants (Disney 9pm) The teenaged son of King Beast and Queen Belle invites the exiled children of defeated Disney villains to attend a prep school with the heroes’ children. Naturally, they all sing.

“Bunk’d” (Disney 11pm) In this spin-off of “Jessie” (which is evidently a Disney thing), the Ross kids head to Camp Kikiwaka for the summer. Probably not as raunchy as “Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp.”

Saturday 1

The Perfect Girlfriend (Lifetime 6pm) Just based on the fact that it’s on Lifetime, I’m gonna go ahead and guess the spoiler: She’s not perfect.

Sunday 2

“On the Record with Mick Rock” (Ovation 6pm) Legendary rock photographer Mick Rock travels to the hometowns of famous musicians to trace their roots. He starts out this musical docu-series on a high note with … Josh Groban? Seriously? Wow.

Monday 3

“Significant Mother” (KWBQ-19 8:30pm) In this uncomfortable-sounding sitcom, a Portland restaurateur (Josh Zuckerman, “Kyle XY”) returns from a business trip to find that his best friend and roommate (Nathaniel Buzolic from “The Vampire Diaries”) is dating his newly single mother (Krista Allen, who starred in eight softcore, made-for-TV Emmanuelle sequels in the early ’90s).

Tuesday 4

“Get Swank’d” (FYI 8pm) Two “southern glam besties” head out on a “trendsetting road trip” in a “first-class, tricked-out fashion truck” offering makeovers to “fashion-challenged locals.” My suggestion if you see these ladies coming? Run.

Wednesday 5

“Melissa & Joey” (ABC Family 6pm) After four seasons of reenacting the story line to “Who’s the Boss?,” ABC Family’s Melissa Joan Hart and Joey Lawrence-led sitcom finally signs off.

“Mr. Robinson” (KOB-4 8pm) Craig Robinson (“The Office”) gets his own sitcom. He’s a musician-turned-middle-school-teacher.

“A Wicked Offer” (KWBQ-19 8pm) This “darkly comic” docuseries (oh, boy) presents couples in need of cash a series of “scandalous and controversial tasks involving their unsuspecting friends, families and coworkers.” See, it offers cash prizes and tests their “moral and ethical boundaries.” Isn’t the evening news more than enough to make us hate humanity, TV?
