Spreading the wealth

In the reality series “#RichKids of Beverly Hills,” the rich kids aren’t icky in that Kardashian way (Sunday, 9 p.m., E!). They’re smart and self-aware, even self-mocking at times. As a result, you don’t laugh at them, but with them. It’s fun to hang out with Dorothy, Morgan, EJ and

R.I.P. Hercule Poirot

Agatha Christie’s Belgian detective Hercule Poirot (David Suchet) returns to “Masterpiece Mystery!” with his waxed mustache, three-piece suit and formal manner — so formal that he even refers to himself in the third person (Sunday, 8 p.m., PBS).

Take my husband — please!

Finally, after a summer’s worth of awful new sitcoms, I’m laughing again.

Bodies of evidence

With “Reckless,” CBS tries to create a sexy summer series — and succeeds (Sunday, 8 p.m.). Jamie (Anna Wood), a gorgeous Yankee lawyer in Charleston, South Carolina, is introduced in stiletto heels first, the camera practically drooling as it pans up to her tight miniskirt. You might think that’s offensive,

In the face of evil

State government prepared for the students’ arrival by buying armor-plated tanks and machine guns. White supremacists stocked up on nooses. Mainstream Mississippi politicians thundered about “crushing the enemy,” meaning outsiders who dared to question racist practices.

The baby or the badge?

The season premiere of “Rizzoli & Isles” (Tuesday, 8 p.m., TNT) proves why it’s one of cable’s most popular series. As opposite types — Jane Rizzoli (Angie Harmon) rough and rude, Maura Isles (Sasha Alexander) posh and pedantic — they tease each other mercilessly. But they also have a sisterly

Don’t knock the rock

You can roll your eyes over the idea of a Rock and Roll Hall of Fame — I have myself at times. But this year’s induction ceremony (Saturday, 7 p.m., HBO) will wipe the sneer right off your face. It’s a three-hour compendium of passionate words and soulful music that
