Think of ABC's summer series Whodunnit? as CSI-meets-reality TV — quite literally. The Clue-like murder-mystery show, in which 13 contestants are brought to a sprawling mansion to compete in a game to find out the identity of the killer among them, is the brainchild of reality TV veteran Cris Abrego (Rock of Love, The Surreal Life) and CSI creator Anthony Zuiker.
Vanilla Ice is coming back to the small screen — and this time, he'll be hanging out with the Amish.

Love in the Wild
Love in the Wild (Wednesdays, 10/9c, NBC) is a trashy beach novel of a TV show. It is salacious in nature (10 women and 10 men are thrown together in a Costa Rican paradise to partner-swap their way to true love) but not in practice (so much closed-mouth kissing).

It is mindless enough to be ideal summertime programming.

7. Worst Second Act: Now with some extra time on his hands, Larry King drops by The Tonight Show with Jay Leno to chat about semi-retirement and debut, as Leno dubs it, his "bright young comedy styling" in a stand-up routine. "If you're watching to book me, I tell stories..." King says, before launching into...
