This week is what summer is all about: Baseball, free outdoor concerts, and reality shows at their worst - by which we mean their best. Welcome to our Top Moments, Boys of Summer edition. 7. Biggest Bully: When Big Brother 's Russell verbally attacks his fellow clique member Jeff, the two have a heated war of words that involves a lot of chest-pounding and caveman threats. We're all about BB shouting matches, but based on the footage we've seen so far, the verbal assault was unwarranted and maybe hurt Russell more than it helped him. And Jeff wins by carrying on his side of the fight without breaking stride on the elliptical machine. 6. Best Toast: Nurse Jackie and the rest of the nursing staff gather around sassy patient Maureen (Judith Ivey), who wishes to die on her own terms, to say one final goodbye. With champagne poured for all, Jackie places a few drops of morphine in Maureen's glass as the patient toasts, "Here's to you and here's to me. And if we ever disagree, [expletive] you. And here's to me." 5. Best Reveal: Guess what, guys? True Blood 's Maryann has claws! And the head of a bull sometimes! And she's making everyone in town crazy with her sexy dancing and orgies of food, wine, sex and violence. Also: As played by Michelle Forbes, she's awesome. 4. Saddest Double Cross: On Weeds , Nancy writes the lovesick Andy a "Dear John" letter and instead moves into the mansion of her kingpin boyfriend, Esteban. In true ruthless criminal fashion, Esteban then dumps her as soon as a mystery woman appears. 3. Worst Performance: The Bachelorette 's Ed gets some alone time on an overnight date with Jillian - and suffers intimacy issues that may make him regret coming back to the show. (He left previously to focus on work, and drum up drama over Jillian's final pick.) Does he deserve the shame of having his failure to perform nationally aired? If he had any shame, would he be on the show in the first place? TVGuide.com's own Joyce Eng has been begging us all week to include a joke about Ed having E.D. Good one, Joyce. But in his defense, Jillian said he just fell asleep. 2. Best Pitch: Barack Obama vowed not to bounce the opening pitch across the plate at the All-Star Game, and he succeeded - thanks in part to a quick move forward by his catcher, Cardinals' hometown hero Albert Pujols. It was a moment with stakes as low as the game itself, home field World Series advantage notwithstanding. Sometimes baseball's best when you don't care who wins. 1. Most Welcome Guest: Forty-five years after he and his fellow Beatles launched the British Invasion, Paul McCartney returns to the Ed Sullivan Theater for his first performance on The Late Show with David Letterman. His performance above the theater's marquee draws thousands of New Yorkers - and millions of viewers enjoying a resurgence of Beatlemania. Source Here

* So You Think You Can Dance (9 pm/ET Fox) We've reached the point that viewers will now decide which two of the remaining 10 contestants are going home, so the pressure is on like never before. And if you've "gotta feeling" who will be moving on, your sentiments may take on a new meaning when the Grammy-winning, hip-hop quartet Black Eyed Peas perform their new single, "I Gotta Feeling," from their fifth studio album, The E.N.D. * Burn Notice (9 pm/ET USA Network ) Michael is used to fishing out bad guys when the job calls for it, but he's also no stranger to being the one who's hunted. So when he finds out an operative from his past is coming after him, he turns to a member of Miami's underworld for help. Unfortunately, it's too little, too late and the pair are kidnapped and taken to the wilderness to be interrogated. But who wants to bet that Michael has a few wilderness-survival tricks up his sleeve? * J.K. Rowling: A Year in the Life (8 pm/ET ABC) Now that Harry Potter is back in theaters ( Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince , based on the next-to-last book in the series, opened yesterday, in case you hadn't noticed), it's as good a time as any to profile the author who gave life to Harry. Elizabeth Vargas hosts this profile (an update of a report that aired in December 2007 in Britain), which follows Rowling back to the Edinburgh cafe where she wrote Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (later Sorcerer's Stone) while she was a single mom on the dole. * Big Brother 11 (8 pm/ET CBS) The new BB house may be environmentally friendly, but it's still filled with backstabbing houseguests who will do most anything to win a half-million dollars. So, who will be the first person to be evicted tonight: Braden from the popular clique or Chima from the brains trio? And with the athletes clique having an extra member since Jessie (the current HOH) from Season 10 was added to the mix last week, will one of them be targeted for eviction by the new Head of Household, who will also be selected tonight? It promises to be a pivotal episode that will determine how the game is played for the remainder of the summer. * Penn & Teller: Bullshit! (10 pm/ET Showtime ) R.E.M. had a hit with "It's the End of the World as We Know It (and I Feel Fine)." And just when should we mark our calendars to remind us of this upcoming catastrophic calamity? Are our days numbered? That's what Penn and Teller try to find out when they put their investigative expertise into determining when we can expect the Apocalypse. In one segment, the show heads to Mexico to check out the "Mayan Prophecy," which predicts doomsday arriving on Dec. 21, 2012. Tune in to see if they hit a dead end. Source Here
