True Blood
9/8c HBO
In the bible, John 8:32 says "the truth will set you free," but the word apparently didn't reach Bon Temps, especially after Jason's confession to Tara about Eggs fell flat, Arlene may seek a wiccan's way out of her pregnancy and Hoyt's profession of love for Jessica got him mauled by a shape-shifting Tommy's pit bull. And the revelation that Sookie's a faerie landed her in Fangtasia's dungeon, but her chances of seeing the "light of day" may have something to do with Eric's revenge against Russell. — Joe Friedrich

NBA owner Mark Cuban is no stranger to controversy, so it should be no surprise when Turtle courts trouble with Carlos by asking the Dallas maverick for financial help with Avion. Didn't Turtle learn anything from all those guns at the Mexican airport? Meanwhile, Vince's slow career suicide continues when he hatches a plan to keep Sasha out of an adult film, and once again, Amanda may have gotten the best of Ari. On the bright side, however, Drama may finally be warming up to his cartoon alter-ego. — Joe Friedrich

Little League World Series
3/2c ABC
With every Series game carried by one of the ESPNs or ABC; and with the plethora of sports stations, Web sites and newspapers covering the event; this thing is becoming bigger all the time. But imagine what it must be like for the 11- to 13-year olds who win, and return to places like Chula Vista, Calif., (the 2009 winners) as champions: These kids won't be paying for their own cones or burgers for years to come. And as the U.S. champ takes on the winner of the International bracket in the 64th title game in Williamsport, Pa., today, bear in mind that U.S. teams have won the last five title games. — Dave Roeder

It's up Border Patrol agents to identify him and return his body to his family. And later, officers crack down on a human-smuggling operation. — Karen Andzejewicz
