THIS WEEK'S TV PICKS

Austin American-Statesman - - AUSTIN360BETS - — Dale Roe

Mon­day

‘The Se­cret Life of the Amer­i­can Teenager’ 7 p.m., ABC Fam­ily: Bris­tol Palin turns up in Amy’s dorm room. Well, I guess it beats turn­ing up in ‘The Bach­e­lor’s’ hot tub.

‘Per­sons Un­known’ 7 p.m., NBC: A new tat­tooed play­mate gets tossed into the creepy con­spir­acy sand­box.

‘Un­wrapped’ 7:30 p.m., Food: Dis­ney­land and Dis­ney World get un­wrapped in tonight’s episode. I’ll bet it’s all goofy in­side.

‘An­thony Bour­dain: No Reser­va­tions’ 9 p.m., Travel: Sea­son 7 kicks off with a trip to the Grena­dine Is­lands.

Tues­day

‘Afraid of the Dark’ 7 p.m., His­tory: I’ll be watch­ing this ex­am­i­na­tion of hu­mans’ fear of dark­ness with ev­ery light in my house turned on.

‘Amer­ica’s Got Tal­ent’ 8 p.m., NBC: Acts com­pete in Ve­gas tonight and Tues­day for a slot in the top 48. Look for Austin’s mu­si­cal light­ning mak­ers, Arc At­tack, to be among them.

‘Ware­house 13’ 8 p.m., Syfy: A theft, a car crash and a trip to London mark this show’s sec­ond sea­son pre­miere.

‘P.O.V.’ 9 p.m., PBS: The view­points of black claimants and white landown­ers in South Africa are pre­sented in this ex­am­i­na­tion of land re­form in South Africa, promised by Nel­son Man­dela in 1994.

‘Ta­ble for 12’ 9 p.m., TLC: Who has the worst idea ever for a fam­ily of 12? Raise your hands. A puppy? You win.

Wed­nes­day

‘Top Chef: Washington, D.C.’ 8 p.m., Bravo: The com­peti­tors have to make baby food for the host’s in­fant. Bril­liant. If I hosted a show, it would be a be one of those ren­o­va­tion shows and I’d make the con­tes­tants fix up my own house.

‘Fab­u­lous Beek­man Boys’ 8 p.m., Green: Martha Ste­wart on the farm? It sounds like a re­make of ‘Green Acres’ to me.

‘Justin Bieber: My World’ 9 p.m., E!: You know, it just oc­curred to me that if the satel­lites of su­per­star­dom that are Justin Bieber and Betty White ever col­lided, it would be a dark, dark day for the uni­verse.

Thurs­day

‘Com­mu­nity’ 8 p.m., NBC: This re­peat episode is the sin­gle most hi­lar­i­ous and well-done half-hour of tele­vi­sion I’ve seen in re­cent me­mory. If you missed it the first time around, don’t make that mis­take again.

This great sum­mer doc­u­men­tary se­ries rolls on with an ap­pen­dec­tomy.
