USA network sends a bunch of adults to "Summer Camp."
USA network sends a bunch of adults to “Summer Camp.”

‘Summer Camp’
REALITY. So, apparently USA has a reality show now? Does every channel do reality TV now, is this where we’re at? (We just found out that ABC Family’s new show “The Vineyard” is actually one of those weird “scripted reality” hybrid shows that are apparently neither real nor acted but also, kind of… both? For some reason we thought ABC Fam was above that.) Anyway, yes, “Summer Camp” is some sort of reality competition show about grown men and grown women competing in nondescript reality-type challenges at a children’s summer camp. (The children have been removed, thankfully.)
8 p.m., USA

‘A Royal Family: E! News Special’
SPECIAL. Now that they’ve given the royal kid a name — he will henceforth be known as His Royal Highness Prince George of Cambridge — what royal matters that have absolutely no effect on us whatsoever will America obsess about NOW? Never fear, you of little else to occupy your time, E! News has put together this doubtless hard-hitting special that will explore Kate and Will’s relationship and how they might choose to raise their son.
8 p.m., E!

‘William, Kate & the Royal Baby’
SPECIAL. Missed the E! special earlier? Or maybe you’re just either really bored tonight, or creepily obsessed with the royal baby — or both. You’re in luck! You can get an encore “news” special, courtesy of Oprah’s network, just an hour later. This one will also explore what this kid’s life might be like. Um, probably terrible and permanently spotlit, if the media frenzy surrounding his birth is any indication.
9 p.m., OWN

Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’
LATE NIGHT. Tonight’s special guests are Marcine and Nita Lou Webb, an octogenarian couple who visited every state in the U.S. together. Which is adorable.
12:37 a.m., NBC
