8 pm The Hero (TNT) | After The Rock reveals a huge twist in the game, contestants leap off a building, climb a 40-story abandoned elevator shaft and attempt a daunting open-water swim.

8 pm The Vampire Diaries (The CW) | Repeat to Revisit: Make sure you’ve got tissues (or a heart of stone) to help you deal with the last few minutes of the hour, which feature this exchange: “I can’t do this, Elena. Not anymore.” “I know.”

9 pm Independence Day-Saster (Syfy) | In this TV-movie, an alien invasion shuts down America’s defenses (gee, wonder where they got that idea?), and it’s up to Jeff Goldblum and Will Smith the President’s brother and a renegade scientist to defeat the intergalactic bad guys.

    Graceland at 10pm. I thought I wasn’t going to like this show but it is one if my favorite shows right now since the summer season hasn’t really started yet. I watched t since it is from the creater of white collar. Which is one of the good summer shows.
