This week's TV Movies


If you hear any noise it's likely to be of the joyful variety when the vocal competition "Sunday Best" raises up a fifth season. Kirk Franklin returns as host, and gospel-music greats Yolanda Adams and CeCe Winans join the judges' panel. (BET, 8 p.m.)

Are we having fun yet? No? Then let's get wet and wild with a double-dose of the new series "Xtreme Waterparks," followed by two episodes of the new roller-coaster countdown "Insane Coaster Wars." (Travel, 8 and 8:30 p.m., 9 and 9:30 p.m.)


He's brilliant, a bit crazy, and he solves crimes… but he's not named Monk. "Will & Grace's" Eric McCormack plays a schizophrenic neuroscientist who helps the FBI crack tough cases in the new procedural drama "Perception." (TNT, 10 p.m.)


Good sports: Baseball's best take to the field at the "2012 MLB All-Star Game" in Kansas City. The following evening, athletes from around the sports world are feted at the "2012 ESPYs" in Los Angeles. (Fox, 4:30 p.m.; ESPN, Wednesday 6 p.m.)


"Beverly Hills Nannies" is a new sitcom about a herd of she-goats munching away on the manicured lawns of the rich and famous … or else it's a new docu-series about childcare professionals and their well-heeled young charges. (ABC Family, 9 p.m.)


What can we say about "Big Brother," returning for its 14th season, that hasn't already been said during its previous outings? Not much really, although a judge recently ruled ABC's knock-off "The Glass House" is not exactly the same show. (CBS, 9 p.m.)


As lead singer of Black Sabbath, he was one of the founding fathers of heavy metal – a substance-abuse survivor who later became the unlikeliest of reality-TV stars. And he's profiled in the 2010 rock-doc "God Bless Ozzy Osbourne." (Showtime, 9 p.m.)


The jokes are on them: Two veteran comics and sometime sitcom stars take it to their respective stages in the new standup specials "D.L. Hughley: Reset" and "George Lopez: It's Not Me, It's You." (Showtime, 9 p.m.; HBO, 10 p.m.)
