SUNDAY

Dr. Jill Biden, wife of Vice President Joe Biden and “second lady” of these United States, guests stars as herself and salutes our nation's service members and their families on a new episode of the drama “Army Wives.” (Lifetime, 10 p.m.)

MONDAY

“California Gurls” and “Glee” boys come together when singer Katy Perry and the series' young male stars co-host “Teen Choice 2010,” the latest edition of the awards celebrating adolescent fans' pop-culture faves. (Fox, 8 p.m.)

TUESDAY

It's a blowout: Tresses will be teased to the extreme as stylists put their hair-raising creations on display in the new reality competition “Hair Battle Spectacular.” Former “Baywatch” babe Brooke Burns hosts. (Oxygen, 10 p.m.)

WEDNESDAY

Marisa Tomei won an Oscar for 1992's “My Cousin Vinny.” It's time everyone got over that. The actress, who has long since proven herself to be adept at both comedy and drama, is profiled on a new “Biography.” (Biography, 7 and 11 p.m.)

THURSDAY

Nothing says summer like some lip-smacking, rib-sticking barbecue. Myron Mixon and company return to put the heat to the meat while showing that sauce who's boss on the “seasoned” premiere of “BBQ Pitmasters.” (TLC, 10 p.m.)

FRIDAY

Screaming “Mimi”: The special “Mariah Carey: The Adventures of Mimi Tour” features the multi-octave/high-octane singer and all-around diva performing some of her biggest hits at a sold-out concert in Anaheim. (11 p.m. VH1)

SATURDAY

Quentin Tarantino directed and Brad Pitt starred, but Christoph Waltz stole the show – and earned an Oscar to boot – as a malicious and multilingual Nazi villain in the violent 2009 WWII tale “Inglourious Basterds.” (Showtime, 8 p.m.)

SOME LIKE IT CALIENTE

Its moves are as intricate as its rhythms are complex, but that doesn't deter 10 everyday, average New Yorkers from trying to learn the fine art of salsa dancing in the new documentary “El Espíritu de la Salsa.” (HBO, 9 p.m. Mon.)

GOOD DEED

“Zeke and Luther's” Hutch Dano — he's Zeke, by the way — plays a high school hockey star who is dragooned into the role of “Den Brother” for his kid sister's Bumble Bee troop in this new made-for-cable comedy. (Disney, 8 p.m. Fri.)

SOME KIND OF BUST

A sort of philosophical-procedural, director Corneliu Porumboiu's 2009 crime drama “Police, Adjective” details a drug-case dilemma faced by an undercover cop (Dragos Bucur) in a small town in Romania. (Sundance, 10 p.m. Tue.)
