Slim pickins on this sweltering summer night.
Last night was pretty enjoyable with the NBC debut of “Nashville Star.” You can read my full recap here. Then I traded in country for Broadway with the second episode of “Legally Blonde” where they pulled a dirty trick on those poor girls. They had to perform a scene from the musical with one of the actual stars, who was asked to purposely drop a line to see how the girls would react. Interesting challenge but not all that telling in the end.
Let’s see what’s on tonight!
Tonight on TV
ABC will be running the NBA Finals, so depending where you live, that might be your primetime choice.
CBS has a repeat of “NCIS,” which is always cool to watch, followed by a new “48 Hours Mystery” and a rerun of “Without a Trace.”
NBC goes with “Most Outrageous Moments,” and two reruns of “Law & Order: SVU.”
The CW has more repeats, “Beauty and the Geek” and “Reaper.”
Fox is the only one with all new programming including “Moment of Truth” and “Hell’s Kitchen.”

Finally, it’s the season finale of “Work Out” on Bravo that leaves Jackie wondering about her life, love and future as a TV star.
