This week's TV Movies




In this new episode of “True Blood,” Sookie (Anna Paquin) tries to adjust to Bon Temps' new realities and Bill (Stephen Moyer) reveals pieces of his past. Alexander Skarsgard, Chris Bauer, Deborah Ann Woll and Sam Trammell also star. (HBO, 9 p.m.)

We love a lady who can make us laugh, ladies like sitcom pioneer Lucille Ball, octogenarian it-girl Betty White and “30 Rock” creator and star Tina Fey. They're just three of the “Funniest Women on TV” profiled in this special. Megan Mullally hosts. (TV Guide, 8 p.m.) 


Celebrate America's birthday by spreading a blanket on your floor and watching “A Capitol Fourth 2011” (above), “Macy's 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular” or the “Boston Pops Fireworks Spectacular.” (KOCE, 8 p.m.; NBC, 9 p.m.; CBS, 10 p.m.)


“POV” presents the 2009 documentary “Sweetgrass,” which tracks modern-day cowboys-cum-shepherds as they guide their fleecy flocks to pasture in the wilds of Montana. So many sheep, you'll doze off before you can count 'em all. (KOCE, 10 p.m.) 


The new special “The Lost Kennedy Home Movies” offers never-before-seen footage of “America's royal family” and includes clips of JFK, Jackie and their children taken just two weeks before that fateful day in Dallas in November 1963. (History, 9 p.m.) 


Who invited them? Interlopers — past players, specifically — will upset apple carts and upend alliances for the current crop of contestants on the latest edition of the reality competition “Big Brother,” hosted by Julie “The Talk” Chen. (CBS, 9 p.m.) 



What if people simply stopped dying? That's the apocalyptic scenario that plays out in “Torchwood: Miracle Day,” the new Americanized iteration of the British science-fiction series. Mekhi Phifer, Bill Pullman and Lauren Ambrose star. (Starz, 10 p.m.) 


Rogues' gallery: Michael Douglas is back as Gordon “Greed is good” Gekko in the 2010 sequel “Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps,” Jesse Eisenberg portrays Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg in 2010's “The Social Network” and tough-guy Danny Trejo (left) is “Machete” in the 2010 actioner. (HBO, 8 p.m.; Starz, 9 p.m.; Cinemax, 10 p.m.)
