Television » It’s stupid hot outside. Even after dark. So this year, there’s a legitimate reason to stay inside and watch fireworks on TV.
Here are the three top choices in that category:
Macy’s Fourth of July Fireworks Spectacular (7 and 9 p.m. Thursday, NBC/Ch. 5): Scheduled performers include Mariah Carey, Taylor Swift and Tim McGraw.
A Capitol Fourth (9 p.m. Thursday, PBS/Ch. 11; 11 p.m. Thursday, PBS/Ch. 7): Scheduled performers include Barry Manilow, Candice Glover, Scotty McCreery, Darren Criss, Jackie Evancho and Megan Hilty.
Philly Fourth of July Jam (9 p.m. Thursday, VH1): Scheduled performers include The Roots, John Mayer, Jill Scott, Demi Lovato, Ne-Yo, Grace Potter and J. Cole.
LOCAL SPORTS ON TV: There’s Triple A baseball on Friday — Tacoma Raineers at Salt Lake Bees (7 p.m., Ch. 14); and Arena Football on Saturday — New Orleans VooDoo at Utah Blaze (7 p.m., Ch.14)
