This week's TV picks:

Monday: "U.S. Olympic Trials" 7 p.m., NBC: I always hope freestyle swimming means that someone will do the dog paddle, and I am always disappointed.

"Web Therapy" 10 p.m., Showtime: Season 2 of Lisa Kudrow's counseling comedy premieres.

Tuesday: "The Catalina" 7 p.m., the CW: Ghost hunters suspect that the hotel is haunted in the Season 1 closer. It's probably just the spirits of former viewers.

"Craft Wars" 9 p.m., TLC: Maybe tonight will finally be the night they re-enact the Battle of Gettysburg with sock monkeys.

Wednesday: "Macy's 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular" 8 p.m., NBC: The display's theme is "Ignite the Night," which is bland, but a lot better than last year's theme: "Heaven's Grease Fire." Katy Perry performs.

"America's Lost Treasures" 8 p.m., NGC: Historical artifacts are evaluated at Austin's Bullock Texas State History Museum in the premiere of this appraisal series.

"Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular" 9 p.m., CBS: For me, it's sort of a toss-up between watching these "spectacular" pyrotechnics on television and checking out the lame but live displays from my three-fingered neighbor's driveway.

"The Real World: St. Thomas" 9 p.m., MTV: Brandon would feel a lot less like an outsider if y'all would let him use the indoor plumbing.

Thursday: "Saving Hope" 8 p.m., NBC: Alex hopes that double-hand transplant surgery wins her a round of applause.

"Kathy" 9 p.m., Bravo: Jimmy Kimmel guests on the first season finale.

Friday: "My Yard Goes Disney" 7 p.m., HGTV: I hear ya — mine is like the Jungle Cruise.

"20/20" 8 p.m., ABC: The venerable newsmagazine searches for heaven. Haven't they gazed into host Chris Cuomo's dreamy eyes?

Saturday: "NYC 22" 8 p.m., CBS: Four off-duty cops with goofy names walk into a bar ... and get caught in the middle of a hold-up.

Sunday: "Hoarding: Buried Alive" 8 p.m., TLC: Are you lonesome tonight? Well, you will be if you don't clear some of that Elvis garbage out of your New York apartment.

"United States of Food" 9 p.m., Destination America: I want to move to South Caramelina.
