San Francisco Chronicle - - DATEBOOK -

Freeform pre­mieres the drama“Dead of Sum­mer ” at 8 p.m. The se­ries is set at a Mid­west­ern sum­mer camp in the mid-’80s and the ex­pected sum­mer of fun be­comes a sum­mer of ter­ror. Cast mem­bers in­clude El­iz­a­beth Mitchell, El­iz­a­beth Lail, Zelda Wil­liams, Mark In­del­i­cato and Eli Goree. The U.S. Olympic Swim­ming Tri­als con­tinue on NBC at8 p.m. from Omaha, fol­lowed by “Amer­ica’s Got Tal­ent ” at 9. “Zoo” re­turns on CBS with a two-hour, two-episode sec­ond sea­son pre­miere at 9 p.m.

Na­tional Ge­o­graphic Chan­nel pre­mieres “No Man Left Be­hind: The Real Black Hawk Down,” about real-life res­cues of pi­lots, agents and oth­ers trapped in hos­tile ter­ri­tory. The show pre­mieres at 9 p.m. The Dis­cov­ery Chan­nel’s “Shark Week” of­fer­ings for the night in­clude “Wrath of a Great White Se­rial Killer” at 9, and

“Air Jaws: Night Stalker” at 10. It oc­curs to me that there is so much shark con­tent on TV, when is An­i­mal Planet go­ing to re­spond as they do with the

“Su­per Bowl”? How about “Gold­fish Week,” the sum­mer sea­son’s an­swer to “Puppy Bowl”? BET pre­mieres “F in Fab­u­lous” at 10 p.m. It’s an E-style

show that fol­lows four “tastemak­ers” around New York City.
