At 8pm, we head to the pool for freestyle, butterfly, and backstroke. Then at 9pm, the women's gymnastics team finishes its last day of competition.
PBS has two new mini-series debuting tonight. First, Queen & Country is a four-part documentary about the British monarchy and how its customs and traditions interact with day-to-day life in the UK. Then on Masterpiece: Mystery!, the 'Inspector Morse' prequel Endeavour airs its first case. The lineup is scheduled to begin at 8pm, but check your local PBS listings.
Finally, Showtime's comedy slate is back on Sunday nights. At 10pm, you can catch the eighth (and final) season premiere of Weeds. At 10:30pm, Matt LeBlanc is back for another season of Episodes.
