The Bachelorette
8/7c ABC
Last week, Justin escaped from that volcano in Iceland. Tonight, after the love jet lands in Istanbul, Ali learns that he has a girlfriend back home (from the girlfriend, no less), and we hear that she takes this breach of "Bachelor" etiquette very, very seriously. Talk about out of the frying pan and into the fire! But there are six other guys and only five roses to bestow. So, gentlemen, slather yourselves in olive oil and wrestle. The winner earns a dinner cruise on the Bosporus with Ali while the losers just get greasy. Next stop: Portugal. — Paul Droesch

MLB Baseball
7/6c ESPN2
After missing out on the first four starts of Washington Nationals pitching phenom Stephen Strasburg, the folks at ESPN2 finally get to celebrate "Strasmas" as the Nats visit the division-rival Braves at Turner Field in Atlanta. While brushing aside a fan-and-media fervor not seen since the fledgling-phenom days of Mark Fidrych, Fernando Valenzuela and Dwight Gooden, Strasburg has racked up a record for strikeouts (41) for a pitcher's first four games, walked just five batters and allowed only 19 hits. Fellow rookie Jason Heyward helps lead the Atlanta hitters taking aim at an arsenal of pitches that may just earn Strasburg a spot on the NL All-Star team. — Roger Leister

As summer gets underway, this new comedy-drama set at a camp debuts...but this isn't just any summer camp. Camp Victory is a weight-loss camp devoted to building teens' self-esteem. Among the new campers are two with very different attitudes: reluctant attendee Willamina (Nikki Blonsky from the film version of Hairspray), who does her best to stir up trouble; and optimistic Amber (Hayley Hasselhoff, daughter of David Hasselhoff), who bonds with the in crowd and starts a possible romance. — Jennifer Sankowski

Back at home, Amy's parents are anything but happy when they discover a bond building between Ashley and their new houseguest, Ricky. And all is not well with Adrian's parents: No longer in the dark about their daughter's situation, Cindy gives her some advice.

Gossip Girl

Lady Gaga appears in this repeat from November, and if things go Blair's way, she'll agree to a private concert for some NYU students. Blair's been trying to impress her classmates, and this latest plan of hers just might do the trick. Meanwhile, Dan, Olivia and Vanessa get involved with a school play, but working in such close proximity with each other could prove problematic as they deal with the fallout from their threesome. — Jennifer Sankowski

Al Pacino turned in what will likely be an Emmy-nominated performance as Jack Kevorkian in the recent HBO drama You Don't Know Jack, but if you are interested in learning more, it's hard to beat the real thing. If that's the case, it's worth watching director Matthew Galkin's 2009 documentary about the controversial pathologist and right-to-die activist known as "Dr. Death" who, after serving almost nine years in prison for second-degree murder, mounted a run to represent Michigan in Congress in 2008. — Joe Friedrich

9/8c A&E
The popular series returns for a ninth season with a rare scenario. The most common situation involves family members helping one of their own, and it's not uncommon to see a parent supporting a child or the other way around. Tonight's episode, however, follows the difficult battle of a mother and her adult son living under the same roof, under the dark cloud of their alcohol problems, exacerbated by a chaotic home life filled with people, dogs and cats. — Bill Ecklund
