What I'll Be Watching, July 23

9 pm: Big Love on HBO

HBO's polygamist family drama Big Love is back. On tonight's episode ("Good Guys and Bad Guys"), Margene's mother, who seems unaware her daughter is a polygamist, visits the Henricksons and catches Bill in a lip-lock with Barb; Bill plays Roman and Hollis against one another; Barb picks up Wanda from the hospital; and Frank comes home, possibly none too pleased that it was his daughter-in-law who poisoned him.

9 pm: Hell's Kitchen

No, I don't know why I am still watching this train wreck of a culinary competition. On tonight's episode, the five remaining contestants are merged into one worse-than-ever team. But just when they've finally come together, they're forced to compete against one another in an individual challenge where they must present dishes to a rather discerning clientèle: a group of 100 high school students.
