Wife Swap

Wife Swap
8/7c ABC
The sixth-season finale features a flamboyant metropolitan couple who dress as superheroes everywhere they go and are on a mission to rid the world of boring relationships.

The other family is as serious as a heart attack: They moved to the country to protect their kids from the bad influences of the city so the kids could concentrate on chores and disciple.

10/9c CBS
The SRU team members are given a delicate assignment: rescue a baby who is being held hostage. The kid is taken when a carjacker steals the vehicle the baby is in. It all comes to a climax at a seedy motel where the captor, who may be a serial killer, is staying. — Tim Holland


9/8c Syfy
At the end of last week's episode, we saw the gang return to a slightly different Eureka than the one they knew before they traveled back in time to the town's foundation. While the charming-yet-devious Trevor (James Callis) adjusts to skipping 60 years of history, Fargo acclimates to a surprising career change. Let's hope his new job description includes these words: "Must know how to deal with red indoor lightning."

Whale Wars

Whale Wars
9/8c Animal Planet
In the Season 3 premiere, Captain Watson leads a fleet of three anti-whaling ships against the wily Japanese — surely a recipe for three times the adventure. A former Norwegian whaling ship and a speedboat have joined the mission, but the Sea Shepherds still find themselves trying to evade a Japanese reconnaissance ship that has been trailing them through the Antarctic. If something doesn't change, odds are a battle will ensue.

PETA: Mike Tyson's Pigeon-Racing Show Cruel and Likely Illegal

Mike Tyson

PETA is not pleased with Mike Tyson's new Animal Planet show about pigeon racing.

The animal welfare group wants New York City prosecutors to investigate Tyson's Brooklyn-based reality show, saying it is cruel to animals and its races could involve illegal gambling.

"Animal Planet needs more programs like Whale Wars and Animal Cops, in which people go to bat for animals, and fewer programs that showcase cruelty and profiteering at animals' expense," PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk said in a statement.

Taking on Tyson, which is scheduled to begin filming next month and air next year on Animal Planet, will follow the former heavyweight champion as he competes in what a news release describes as the "intensely competitive and bizarrely fascinating world of pigeon racing."

Don't Forget The Lyrics

Good Morning America
7 am/ET ABC
Is it just our intuition or does Jamie Foxx have an upcoming tour to promote? As it happens, his Intuition (that's his latest CD) Tour kicks off July 3 in Las Vegas. He'll be busy before that, too: Spike's Guys Choice awards on Sunday and The BET Awards (which he'll host) on June 28. Maybe there'll be an Obama impression someplace, but Foxx's focus this morning on GMA's Central Park concert will be on keeping up the momentum from "Blame It," his platinum single from Intuition.

VIDEO: It's Pirates vs. Pirates in Whale Wars

Whale Wars

Only one group of brave people stand between 750-ton-whale-killing machines and their prey — and those are the brave people of the Sea Shepherd in Animal Planet's newest series, Whale Wars. These guys and gals risk their lives to stop illegal whalers by ramming ships, boarding the other vessels and even throwing rotten butter "bombs" on the whalers' decks. They may be using "non-violent" means, but that doesn't stop the other party from using real gunfire to keep them away. Get the scoop on what life on the Sea Shepherd ship is like and what celebrity names back the cause.
