The Boob Tube: Must-See TV For The Week Of July 12, 2010
The World Cup is over. Which means—sniff, sniff—there’s a serious hole in our
pants television hearts. So what should we fill it with? Luckily, there’s lots of good stuff happening on the small screen this week, from the big fight on “The Real Housewives of New Jersey” to the series finale of “The Hills.” Plus, check out new shows “Covert Affairs” and “Mary Knows Best,” which follows a psychic mom and her family. Hawt.
The Show: “The Real Housewives of New Jersey”

Fight! Fight! Fight! Teresa chases Danielle down the hall, but is it Teresa or Ashley who assaults Danielle?
The Show: “Strange Pregnancies”

It’s baby week on Discovery Health. The show I’m excited for? “Strange Pregnancies.” This show introduces you to a woman with two uteruses, ahem, uteri, and another woman whose 55-year-old mother is her baby’s surrogate.
The Show: “The Hills”
Set Your DVR For: Tuesday, 10 p.m. (EST), MTV
Hard to believe that “The Hills” has been on for six seasons. And after Tuesday night, it’s officially dunzo. How will it end? We’ll see how they wrote it.
The Show: “Covert Affairs”
Set Your DVR For: Tuesday, 10 p.m. (EST), USA
I always kind of liked Piper Perabo of “Coyote Ugly” and “Rocky and Bullwinkle,” so I’m glad she’s back in this new series. Yes, it looks like an “Alias” rip-off. But hey, I adored “Alias.”
The Show: “Mary Knows Best”
Set Your DVR For: Thursday, 9 p.m. (EST), Syfy
Mary Occhino is a well-renowned psychic in Long Island. And she’s also a mom. This show is kind of like “The Real Housewives,” only with ESP.
