What to Watch Wednesday, July 30

'Lewis Black's Root of All Evil'
(10:30PM, Comedy Central) 2nd season premiere
This one should be a battle royale. Which is more likely the root of all evil: ultimate fighting or bloggers?

Tough call, but comedians Patton Oswalt and Andrew Daly will make their best cases in the season opener of the show that, at its best, is a great excuse for host Lewis Black's trademark rants.

Last season, Black presided over the mock court as Oswalt, Daly and fellow comics argued the inherent evilness of everything from Donald Trump and Viagra to high school and 'American Idol,' with Daly compiling a 2-0 record to Oswalt's uneven 2-2 tally.

Here's hoping the funny dudes finally get a chance to take on the match-up that, according to Black, has been banned so far: The nefarious natures of Scientology vs. Disney.

'Baby Borrowers'
(9PM, NBC) 1st season finale
Actually, it's a finale/where-are-they-now episode, as the teens finish the experiment by caring for some elderly folks. Afterwards, we find out what the pretend 'rents think about being mommies and daddies since their 'Baby Borrow'-ing days ended.

'Shear Genius'
(10PM, Bravo)
They're just one blond shy of a full-on 'Charlie's Angels' reunion tonight, as Kate Jackson visits Jaclyn Smith's new TV land homestead as a guest judge while the contestants try to re-create super '70s 'dos.

'Scare Tactics'
(10PM, SCI FI)
That ain't opportunity knocking on some RV campers' door ... it's Bigfoot!

'Project Runway'
(9PM, Bravo)
Still love the show, but this season's designers are just so un-Siriano-ish.

'Criss Angel Mindfreak'
(10PM, A&E)
Live, shackled inside a Florida building that's about to implode, it's Criss Angel. Will the escapologist (it's a real word. Really) free himself from the Miami hot spot before it's curtains for him?


Tomorrow's preview: 'Hopkins,' 'Last Comic Standing' and more
