What I'll Be Watching | August 6

9 pm: Big Love on HBO.

HBO's polygamist family drama Big Love is back. On tonight's episode ("Circle the Wagons"), Bill turns to Nicki to get Barb and Margene on board for his plans for Weber Gaming; Alby holds vigil at Papa Roman's bedside and crashes a meeting of the UEB; and Lois tries to get back on Bill's good side again.

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 season finale, Rock and Bonnie square off as they redesign two separate restaurants at Hell's Kitchen, prepare their own menus, and reunite with past contestants (including a teary Julia). Only one will walk away the winner and head chef at a Las Vegas resort that no one will ever visit.

10 pm: Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations on Travel Channel

The third season of Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations continues as Tony teams up with Andrew Zimmern for a tour of New York City. Watch as they trade outrageous stories and visit old haunts! Marvel at how together and with it Bourdain seems after everything he put his body through in his book Kitchen Confidential.
