Potts Picks: Today’s Best TV – July 14, 2011


Primetime Emmy Nomination Announcement
Bridesmaids and Gilmore Girls (oh, okay, and Mike & Molly) funny girl Melissa McCarthy and Fringe star Joshua Jackson announce the nominees for the Sept. 18 Emmy Awards. Will your faves be among those getting the early morning congrats calls?

Burn Notice
– Money-launderin’ Barry is back, and he needs Michael and the gang’s help to clear his brother, who’s been accused of being a big ol’ computer hacker.

– What happens when Bender testified against the Mob (the Robot Mob)? He has to enter the witness protection program, of course.

Real Housewives of New York City
Ramona refuses to be in the music video for LuAnn‘s new song, because she thinks it’s going to set a bad example for Avery. And you’ll be right there with Ramona … until LuAnn brings up that embarrassing “Turtle Time” thang.

Texas Women
– Who’s having the best week ever (still miss that show)? Texas, between the greenlight for the TNT Dallas remake and this new reality series, a sorta “Real Housewives of Texas.”

10PM | FX
– There’s payoff in some truly funny Ryan/Wilfred moments, but tonight’s episode, with guest star Ed Helms, includes a truly disturbing storyline for Wilfred and his time at doggy day care.

Childrens Hospital
– The docs wait for a prisoner to be executed. Oh, so they can use his heart in a transplant operation.
