Thursday 26

Don’t Be Tardy for the Wedding” (Bravo 7 p.m.) If you’re one of those people who just loves watching other people plan for their wedding, here’s another “other people plan for their wedding” show to add to the pile. Also: If you’re one of those people who loves watching other people plan for their wedding, you might want to knock it off before you turn into some creepy amalgam of Mrs. Havisham and a crazy old cat hoarder.

“7 Days of Sex” (Lifetime 8 p.m.) In this new reality series, unhappy couples are challenged to have sex for one week straight in hopes of saving their marriage. That sounds … like something we shouldn’t be watching.

“The Conversation With Amanda de Cadenet” (Lifetime 9 p.m.) According to Wikipedia, Ms. de Cadenet is a British photographer. She was once married to Duran Duran bassist John Taylor. Now, she’s married to Strokes guitarist Nick Valensi. So, naturally, she has a talk show. On tonight’s premiere, she chats with Jane Fonda, Gwyneth Paltrow, Sarah Silverman and Zoe Saldana.

Friday 27

“Wild Grinders” (NickToons 5 p.m.) Pro skateboarder Rob Dyrdek contributes his first animated TV series. Spoiler alert: It’s about skateboarding.

Saturday 28

Space Twister (Syfy 7 p.m.) Honestly, Syfy, I underestimated your commitment to adding vaguely sci-fi-sounding adjectives to your boring meteorological-based disaster movies. But between this and last week’s Alien Tornado , I see you’re quite serious.

“Cloudstreet” (Ovation 8 p.m.) This Australian import follows the lives of two working class families from 1943 to 1963.

“Flipped Off” (A&E 8 p.m.) Oh, goodie. More house-flipping action. … Honestly, TV, you’re like my idiot stoner friend who keeps talking about what an awesome idea it would be to open his own smoke shop. We’ve got like 50 of those already—knock it off!

“The Thick of It” (BBC America 10 p.m.) HBO’s “Veep” is a heavily ( heavily ) rewritten version of this British political satire, which enters its third season on BBC America tonight.

Sunday 29

“TV Land Awards 2012” (TV Land 7 p.m.) TV Land honors all the old shows it hardly ever airs anymore. Plus, the B-52s perform.

“My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding” (TLC 8 p.m.) Hell yeah! Why have we been outsourcing our big fat gypsy weddings to England all this time?

Monday 30

“Adventure Time” (Cartoon Network 8:30 p.m.) Attention, fans, tonight’s new episode is titled “Return to the Nightosphere”—which almost certainly means that Marceline’s evil father is coming back for a visit. Algebraic!

“Motorcity” (Disney XD 7 p.m.) Here’s a weird concept for a kids’ cartoon: An evil masked billionaire buys out Detroit in the near future and a gang of teenage hot-rodders must race against time to bring down his totalitarian regime.

Tuesday 1

“The Treasure of Osama bin Laden” (Discovery 8 p.m.) Sounds like something Nicolas Cage should be looking for in his next movie.

Wednesday 2

“Suburgatory” (KOAT-7 7:30 p.m.) George gets a new girlfriend: Alicia Silverstone.
