TV Watch List: Thursday, August 4
REALITY. We counted two ambulances and innumerable bleeps in a trailer for the new season of “Jersey Shore,” which sends the self-described guidos and guidettes to the homeland — and no, we’re not talking about Staten Island. Snooki, The Situation, Pauly D, J-Woww, Ronnie, Sammi, Vinny and Deena head to Florence, Italy, to soak up the, um, culture? The biggest challenge we’re sure they’ll face: How to order Ron Ron Juice in Italian.
Season premiere, 10 p.m., MTV
REALITY. The fur will fly — hopefully not literally — in tonight’s episode, “My Pet Project.”
9 p.m., Lifetime
REALITY. We assume the new challenge Kindergarten Chaos involves runny-nosed 5-year-olds with finger paint all over their hands and clothes biting contestants.
8 p.m., ABC
