Get your fill of reality TV, vicious fish

Dale Roe

This week's TV highlights:


"The Bachelorette" 7 p.m., ABC: Tonight's season finale gets all fidgety in Fiji. Then, host Chris Harrison interviews Ashley in the traditional "After the Final Rose" special at 9 p.m.

"Rogue Sharks" 8 p.m., Discovery: Shark attacks are examined, but I'm confused - wouldn't a rogue shark be one who doesn't act like a predatory killer?


"Take The Money And Run" 8 p.m., ABC: The concept of this new game show, in which a contestant gets to hide a briefcase containing $100,000 and keep it if detectives can't find it within 48 hours, is a lot more fun than the actual execution.

"Picker Sisters" 9 p.m., Lifetime: It's like "American Pickers," but with female designers.

"POV" 9 p.m., PBS: Want to watch a bunch of sweaty Finns hit the saunas? Tonight's documentary, "Steam of Life," is right in your wheelhouse.


"Wonders of the Universe" 8 p.m., Science: It's about time. Literally.

"Jon Benjamin Has a Van" 9:30 p.m., Comedy Central: He's got some really funny friends, too. Patton Oswalt and David Cross join him tonight.


"Detroit in Overdrive" 7 p.m., Green: Kid Rock and designer Joe Faris are among notables working to revitalize the Motor City in the premiere of this documentary series.

"When Fish Attack 3" 9 p.m., Discovery: Go ahead and laugh, but those guppy nips sting.


"Platinum Hit" 7 p.m., Bravo: The first season of this ironically named competition concludes.

"Friends With Benefits" 7 p.m., NBC: This elusive summer network sitcom debuts tonight with back-to-back episodes.


"Who Is Simon Miller" 7 p.m., NBC: Hmm. NBC's airing the elusive summer network TV movie, too. Robyn Lively stars.


"Big Brother" 7 p.m., CBS: If my childhood was any indication, this reality show is about older siblings who pin you down and either tickle you until you can't breathe or pound the bejabbers out of you.

"Teen Choice 2011" 7 p.m., Fox: "The Big Bang Theory's" Kaley Cuoco hosts the event to honor, I guess, the year's best vampire stuff.
