in Tonight on the Tube

Wimbledon Tennis Ball TeeThe Evidence bids adieu tonight with its final episode. Not much on the tube tonight but plenty of sports action to keep you entertained today with Wimbledon tennis, U.S. Women’s Open golf, World Cup Soccer and NASCAR racing. That is quite the spectrum of sport. What will you be watching?

Prime Picks

Lilo & Stitch (ABC): Animated Movie about a lonely girl who takes in a dog that is actually an alien who is hiding from some intergalactic hunters. Runs two hours.

The Evidence (ABC): Series Finale. Evidence in one murder leads by accident to another killing in the last episode of this show.

Solid Selections

Dateline NBC (NBC): New. Some people who claimed to be child molestation victims in Bakersfield, CA now recant their claims.

Deep Impact (CBS): Movie about people preparing for a comet that is going to hit Earth. Stars Morgan Freeman, Tea Leoni, Elijah Wood and others. Runs two hours and 27 minutes.

Cable Choices

Emeril Live (Food Network): Repeat. Emeril and guest Mario Batali have a friendly little Italian food cook off.

Desolation Canyon (Hallmark): Released 2006. This made for TV movies stars Patrick Duffy and Stacy Keach as old gunslingers trying to track down the gang who has taken one of their sons. Runs two hours and plays twice tonight.

Other Options

  • Bama-Que Cook-off (Food Network): New. The U.S. BBQ Champion is crowned.
  • Design on a Dime (HGTV): New. A media room gets a hip makeover into a cool lounge.
  • Trading Spaces (TLC): New. A couple of episodes tonight as psychics trade places in the first. Won’t they already know what is being done at their place before they see it? They sure seem to be heading down hill with these special episodes. They need a cute a perky host to return the show to what it was, actually fun to watch without silly stunt type episodes to try and build interest.

Sports Notes

  • ABC has third round coverage of the Buick Championship golf tournament with World Cup Soccer earlier in the morning.
  • ESPN has World Cup Soccer.
  • ESPN2 has Wimbledon tennis coverage surrounding the NBC coverage of the event.
  • FOX has Saturday afternoon baseball and later has the NASCAR Pepsi 400 from Daytona International Speedway.
  • NBC has coverage of Wimbledon tennis followed by the U.S. Women’s Open golf tournament.

Late Night
