Potts Picks: Today’s Best TV

Children of Promise: The Legacy of Robert F. Kennedy
Mandy Patinkin narrates this powerful special, which covers the important work done by the Robert F. Kennedy Children’s Action Corps, an agency that helps young victims of crime, violence and neglect. The show unfolds three examples of actual kids helped by the program, including a man who, at age 14, was involved in a gang-related murder, and is now the Deputy Director of the New Jersey Division of Child Behavioral Health Services.

10PM | ABC
– The episode’s all about infomercials, including a test of some of the most popular As Seen on TV products. Still regretting I never got one of those Pocket Fishermans, which – did you know? – are still available!

Channel Surfing – June 12

All the tube news that’s fit to surf …

– Tonight is the big 20/20 interview with Adam Lambert.

– The Real Housewives of New York, New Jersey, Atlanta and O.C. are guest-hosting the fourth hour of the Today Show next week. Monday, it’s Bethenny Frankel (Real Housewives of New York City), on Tuesday, Danielle Staub (Real Housewives of New Jersey), NeNe Leakes from Real Housewives of Atlanta on Wednesday and Tamra Barney from Real Housewives of Orange County on Thursday.

– MLB Network is debuting its first reality series, The Pen, on June 14 (8PM ET). The show covers the action in the Philadelphia Phillies bullpen.

The Real World 23 will take place in Washington, D.C.

Robert Rodriguez confirms his live-action boob tube-to-big screen Jetsons movie will begin filming next year. Moviehole thinks Danny DeVito may be too old to play Mr. Spacely, but it’s hard to picture anyone else in the role, no?

My Name Is Earl is officially kaput, though’s Michael Ausiello says there is a cable network still interested in potentially picking up Samantha Who?.

– Heidi, of Heidi-n-Spencer infamy, will reportedly pose nekkid for Playboy. Curious how that fits in with her alleged religious beliefs …

– A line of Danny Gokey eyeglasses? Yup.

– While Stephen Baldwin is off in the jungle on I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here, his foreclosed home is being auctioned off.

– And signs of life from one of my favorite comedies, It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, which shot some scenes on location in Philly this week, under the direction of Fred Savage (yes, Wonder Years Fred Savage). And how cool is Charlie Day? He’s definitely on my dream Emmy nomination list. The show, BTW, is scheduled to return to FX for its fifth season in September, and will include an episode in which Sweet Dee (Kaitlin Olson) tries to emulate Octomom.
