What to watch on Wednesday, August 1...

Do not adjust your television set: The gymnastics stadium at the London Olympics really IS that pink (p.s. congrats, USA women's gymnastics team!). Tonight in primetime we'll return to the glowing magenta arena for the men's gymnastics all-around, plus there will be more swimming, diving, and beach volleyball. Or there's these less sporty but still fun offerings:

9pm, USA
Royal Pains
In "Manimal," Hank and Divya treat a "large animal veterinarian" (maybe he's feeling a little hoarse? Har, sorry, moving on). Elsewhere, Evan and Paige help a friend who's dealing with an unexpected loss, and Boris hosts a secret international summit at Shadow Pond but then has to help out one of the power players after he falls ill.

9pm, TNT
Dallas
More oil! More drama! More screen time for Larry Hagman's eyebrows! And also a medical crisis strikes the Ewing family.

SPECIAL, 10pm, TLC
My Teen's Pregnant and So Am I
Don't know that there's much to add to this one, that title says it all.

10pm, USA
Necessary Roughness
Yeehaw! Tonight Dani treats a professional bull rider. Plus Dani and Matt deal with their break-up, Matt and Nico struggle to control a pesky reporter who's observing T.K. at training camp, and Ray Jay does so well on the SATs that it causes tension with Olivia.

10pm, BRAVO
Top Chef Masters
In "You May Now Feed the Bride," we'll see the chefs catering—and possibly ruining, according to the promos—a wedding. Hopefully no one will incur any skin graft-requiring injuries this week!

    What? You don't include the new ep of Damages? For shame!

  • Bottron Aug 02, 2012

    If TLC has nothing else to prove, it's that Trash begets Trash.

    Just as an FYI for any TV.com staff people, this page and the sub-headline on the News page incorrectly credits "My Teen Is Pregnant And So Am I" to MTV, when it's airing on TLC. Just thought you might want to fix that.

  • dmay017 Aug 02, 2012
