The Bridge
8/7c CBS
Aaron Douglas stars in this Canadian-imported drama as dedicated cop Frank Leo, who becomes the police union's leader after he stages a walkout to protest the department's ill treatment of his fellow officers. While he continues to take down criminals on the street, Frank's biggest battles are internal with his own superiors and with the men in blue he represents, who aren't always law-abiding citizens. — Tim Holland

Tour de France
7:30 a.m./6:30c VS
The mountain stages begin as the riders tackle Stage 7, a 165.5-km trek from Tournus to Station des Rousses. While the slopes of this stage are not overly steep, there is not one section of flat road throughout the course. Both Tournus and Station des Rousses are hosting the Tour for the first time. — Kelly McGettigan

World Cup Soccer
2/1c ABC
Stung by one-goal losses in the semifinals, Germany and Uruguay hang around South Africa to play 90 more minutes in a third-place match that may not provide the teams consolation but should produce some free-flowing, high-scoring soccer. Individual glory may become the story as Golden Boot contenders Thomas Mueller and Miroslav Klose of Germany (four World Cup goals each) look to edge ahead of a pair of five-goal scorers in action in tomorrow's final. Uruguay star Diego Forlan is also on four goals, but a thigh injury may keep him off the pitch, leaving Luis Suarez (three goals) to put his best foot forward. — Roger Leister

Housecat Housecall
10:30 a.m./9:30c Animal Planet
Feline friends get all the attention they need when Dr. Katrina pays a house call to owners facing quirky behaviors from their beloved pets. Sometimes, as in this episode, it's four men trying to make their female cat feel at home in their house. Other times the doc makes a celebrity visit, like this one with Broadway composer Michael Feinstein, who just wants to chat about his kitties with the aptly name specialist. — Rhoda Charles

Doctor Who
9/8c BBC America
In the Doctor's previous incarnations, we've seen the space-and-time-traveling hero do some amazing things, such as saving history, humanity, and even the universe, but did you know he can also make a mean omelet? Matt Smith, who once wanted to play pro football (that's soccer to us Yanks), gets to show off his footwork in this quirky Earth-based episode, and if you've ever wanted to see the man in nothing but a towel, here's your chance. — Michael Chant

Turco plays a single mom who decides to sell a cabin she inherited from her uncle.
