What to watch on Wednesday, July 25...

Happy Wednesday! I hope I've managed to find you in good spirits today. If not, I highly advise you to find a couple of friendly ghosts to step inside. Get it? PUNS! And now, here is your television line-up for the night:

9pm, NBC
America's Got Talent
Catch it while it lasts, ya'll, because once the Olympics take over (as they will on Friday) this show will launch into a two-week hiatus that will feel like it lasts... two weeks. Do you think it gives the contestants an unfair advantage to have that much down time to gear up for the next round of cuts? Tonight, four acts move on to the Top 24 and 20 year-old Cher Lloyd (who won 4th place on The X Factor and still landed a deal with Simon's label) will perform.

9pm, Bravo
Million Dollar Listing Los Angeles
You might think this show is nothing more than a showcase on the rich and glamorous—you know, where the narrator speaks with a fake British accent and shows you a number of houses that make you feel poorer than Tiny Tim—but it's not. It's about the cutthroat nature of the high-end real estate biz, and the pseudo inside look into what goes into cutting a deal is pretty cool. Honestly this show makes me want to avoid getting rich at all costs because just about every rich person on this show, including the agents, is a complete D-bag tool, but still! The deals! ...Are interesting. Tonight two agents rain on another's open house (see? D-bags) and agent Josh Altman attempts to make a deal that could anger his client in a big way.

10pm, USA
Necessary Roughness
I really dig tonight's case: a spelling bee genius needs help with his stutter. Is that adorable or what? Poor kid. Also, Jeanette procrastinates when it comes to coming clean, a league representative pays a surprise visit to Nico, and T.K. is suddenly looking what he thought to be an old and forgotten problem right in the face. Metaphorical stare down! Stare those problems down, T.K.! Or do something about it. That might be the smarter way to go.

10pm, MTV
The Real World: St. Thomas
Remember when this show still had some semblance of integrity? Time flies when you're staging drama! In tonight's episode, "Clean Break," the roommates get jobs working at Coral World Ocean Park—and it doesn't take long before LaToya gets the hots for her new co-worker, who is also a boat captain. Ten bucks they play Lonely Island's, "I'm on a Boat" at least once in this episode. Oh, and also: Brandon spirals out of control—but who didn't see that coming?

SEASON 4 PREMIERE, 10pm, Bravo
Top Chef Masters
The chefs unite in Las Vegas for tonight's Season 4 premiere. The menu for the evening is dictated by the results of a card game—so apropos. But by the end of the night, they'll have prepared a high-end buffet which they'll feed to a few of Vegas' most renowned performers.
