Would you let your kids learn lanyard weaving from these two? Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie head into the California hills as camp counselors.

TUESDAY, MAY 29

HOUSE
9 P.M. | FOX

Season finale. A woman and her husband flee Cuba by boat, hoping Dr. H can help with her illness. But once in the hospital she flatlines. Is it the fault of the hospital or her mystery disease?

WEDNESDAY, MAY 30

THE NEXT BEST THING: WHO IS THE GREATEST CELEBRITY IMPERSONATOR?

SHEAR GENIUS
10 P.M. | BRAVO

The $100,000 hairstyling contest, graced by the flawlessly tressed Jaclyn Smith, comes to an end. The finalists have to execute three cuts that tell a narrative (short? shorter? shortest?) with Vidal Sassoon as guest judge.

Produced by Survivor‘s Mark Burnett, this reality competition puts 16 adventurers on a boat in the Caribbean and sets them sailing for hidden treasure.

THE STARTER WIFE

USA Network, May 31, 9 P.M. ET| [2.5 stars]

COMEDY-DRAMA

In this six-hour, five-week miniseries, Debra Messing plays Molly Kagan, a Hollywood wife who must rediscover herself after her movie-executive husband dumps her and cancels her life of pampered prestige. Not exactly a fresh story (it’s based on Gigi Levangie Grazer’s 2005 novel), but Messing is a smart, charming actress, and she keeps stepping lightly even as the indignities and implausibilities pile up. (Molly has a fling with a sexy homeless man who sleeps in the bushes of Malibu and reads Philip Roth.) Judy Davis has some ferociously funny moments as a friend who’s in rehab.
