Into the Dragon's Lair - Wednesday July 27, 7 PM ET, Animal Planet

Two renowned nature cinematographers head into the crocodile-infested water of the Nile, armed with cameras and a spear gun, to try to capture the life of the crocodile while it's underwater. The 'dragons lair' of the title is actually tunnels through and under the papyrus reeds of the river, created by crocs and hippos, where visibility is basically nil. Their challenge is to get the animals on camera, in a way that's comprehensible for viewers, and not get injured by any number of dangerous creatures.

Missy Peregrym of 'Rookie Blue' on 'Access Hollywood Live'Missy Peregrym said Tuesday on 'Access Hollywood Live' (weekdays, syndicated on NBC) that she's always been athletic and loved sports, a trait that serves her well playing Andy McNally, the lead character on the police drama 'Rookie Blue.' She knows her way around a basketball court, and can twist a wrist into handcuff position with authority.

On the basketball front, Kit Hoover asked Peregrym if she thought she could take Billy Bush on the court. The answer was a hesitant but confident yes. "I wanted to be polite, but probably," she said. Bush said Peregrym might have trouble with his speed and asked her height. "I'm five six and a half but I've got a great shot and I'm squirrely out there," she said.

The Voice - Tuesday June 28, 9PM ET, CTV/NBC

The show ends this week, with the final four singing tonight and results tomorrow. I've enjoyed what I've seen of the show, though I admit I wasn't devoted to it. Most of my pleasure has come from watching Adam Levine try to be Simon Cowell, and wondering what Xtina is going to wear next. We get it, sweetie, you have a small waist and big chest.

'Rookie Blue'The only scripted new series from the several ABC launched last summer to get renewed returned with its second season. And the action wasn't going to let up a bit on 'Rookie Blue' (Thu., 10PM ET on ABC) for the fresh-faced rookie officers.

In this season premiere, McNally tracked one possibly the failingest criminal in the short history of the show to a rooftop where he was going to jump off. Except that he didn't. It kind of ruined his murder-suicide plan.

The intention was to murder his ex-girlfriend and then commit suicide. Instead he killed his ex-girlfriend's roommate, and McNally, and now he couldn't even jump off the roof. But he could talk, and while he was talking, McNally snuck up behind him and took out his knees, knocking him back onto the ground.

The 'Rookie Blue' set is buzzing as the cast and crew work away on Season 2. The biggest change here since Season 1 is the addition of a toilet in one of the cells –- part of the painstaking efforts to make the show as realistic as possible.

The breakout hit from last summer is filmed on location across Toronto, but its base is here, inside a non-descript warehouse just outside the downtown core. Right now the cast is gathered in the briefing room as the crew films a meeting scene from every possible angle. While the rookies may not be brand spanking new, they still have a lot to learn. Season 2 has lots of curveballs in store, including the addition of Lauren Holly ('Dumb & Dumber') in a recurring role.

We caught up with stars Missy Peregrym, who plays Andy, and Gregory Smith, who plays Dov, between takes to get the rundown on what to expect from their sophomore season. (Hint: there's gonna be a love triangle!) They also dish on second-season jitters, newly found admirers and feedback from real-life cops.
