What I'll Be Watching, July 30

9 pm: Big Love on HBO

HBO's polygamist family drama Big Love is back. On tonight's episode ("Kingdom Come"), HBO promises the most dramatic episode yet: Bill devises a new schedule for his three wives while inciting Roman to retaliate against the Greenes; Frank locates Lois' hidden stash; and someone fires a gun.

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 final three contestants are tasked with reinventing a classic American dish for a sophisticated fine dining establishment (um, where would that be?), which will be judged by their mothers, who are unaware of who cooked what.

10 pm: Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations on Travel Channel

Season Three kicks off tonight with Tony exploring the Far East as he takes a tour of Shanghai's culture and cuisine.
