Happy Bastille Day! Today is one of the worst days of the year. Football and basketball season are still months away, and all of baseball is quiet as All-Stars rejoin their clubs. The TV slate is a bit light, so tonight I'll be watching the copy of Icons Among Us: Jazz in the Present Tense I got from Netflix. Here are your options:
- 8 pm EDT, Best In Show (TV Guide Network): Apparently they show actual content on TV Guide now. I'm for it.
- 9 pm EDT, Ken Burns' Baseball, The Seventh Inning (1950-1960) (PBS): The "golden age," when half the teams had yet to sign any black players and no one discussed amphetamines.
- 9 pm EDT, The Espy Awards (ESPN): I've never watched this. My streak continues tonight. Seth Myers is hosting. I would have preferred Zach Galifianakis. Not that I would have watched had he hosted, mind you.
