Take a first look at Season 8 of Showtime's PENN & TELLER: BULLSHIT!, which premieres on Thursday, June 10, 2010 at 10 p.m. (ET/PT). Show Description: Veteran producer Mark Wolper, Executive Producer Star Price and renowned master showmen Penn & Teller deliver a high-octane, weird, wacky, entertaining journey through some bizarre territory that no one else is brave enough to touch, with this Showtime reality series. By their own admission, Penn & Teller have been dying to do a show like this. Confirmed skeptics and pro-science atheists (they refer to God as "an imaginary friend"), these magicians are big fans of the art of debunking. Whether demonstrating how history's most perplexing magic acts are performed in their sell-out Las Vegas show and TV specials, or producing their own series that pulls the wool off the public's eyes, Penn & Teller's mission is to expose the truth to an otherwise desperate and gullible public. In Penn & Teller: Bullshit!, the crusaders utilize principles of magic and trickery, as well as good old fashioned "hidden camera" sting operations, to smoke out these nonsense peddlers and reveal how they operate.

* Royal Pains (10/9c USA Network ) Hank's got a lot on his plate in tonight's first-season finale. He worries about the future of HankMed as he considers replacing Divya after she ties the knot. Hank also butts heads with his brother over Evan's financial practices. In the midst of these concerns, he still has a client to treat: a woman suffering hallucinations. Add a dash of romantic woes as Charlie moves in with Jill, and it's a recipe for disaster. * Battle of the High School Musicals: Guys 'N' Divas (8:30/7:30c Showtime ) Forget the glitter, gloss and glamor of Disney's High School Musical franchise. This involving documentary is the down-and-dirty real deal. It's an intriguing chronicle that follows the intense and demanding competition among a trio of secondary schools in southern Indiana, where they attempt to mount productions to qualify for a prestigious summer-theater festival. The film is chock full of aspiring Zacs, Vanessas, Ashleys and Corbins, and the talent is extremely polished. * Project Runway (10/9c Lifetime Television ) Season 6 commenced last week in high style. Not only were there weepy dramas (Johnny was ready to throw in the towel), but actress and tabloid darling Lindsay Lohan was the guest judge. It all got fishy real fast: Contestant Ari Fish got the hook when her outfit was dubbed a "disco soccer ball" by judge Michael Kors, and she became the season's first fashion victim. And then there were 15: The remaining clothiers in this couture club are slated to create a look for a celeb in tonight's challenge. * Bully Beatdown (9:30/8:30c MTV ) Former geeks rejoice! This satisfying series returns for a second season, with more victims of bullying getting sweet revenge by pitting their former tormentors against professional MMA fighters. So-called tough guys get two options: accept the challenge (and the chance to win big bucks if they succeed in the ring) or bow out like cowards. With any luck, this series will make future bullies think twice about picking on the little guy. * Kennedy Brothers: A Hardball Documentary (7/6c MSNBC) "Join us...to stand for progress...to go forward until the United States achieves that great goal of practicing what it preaches." From a lofty Barack Obama speech? Nope. Try John F. Kennedy circa 1960. Reported by Chris Matthews, this look at the lives and legacies of Kennedy brothers Jack, Bobby and Ted - who each, in his own way, shaped America, its culture and politics - features archival clips, including Ted's stirring eulogy of Robert, and interviews with Kennedy insiders and scholars. * Penn & Teller: Bullshit! (10/9c Showtime ) Holy cow! What kind of bull has gotten Penn and Teller riled up now? As if The Da Vinci Code and Angels & Demons haven't vexed and perplexed the Catholic Church hierarchy enough, now these two muckrakers are on a crusade to expose the inner workings of the Vatican. It's the series' seventh-season finale, and there's going to be hell to pay. Do the guys dig deep? Does the Pope wear a tall hat? 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
