Jenny’s TV Guide: Wednesday August 20

Wednesday marks the season finale of Ghost Hunters International on SciFi at 9/8c and Family Foreman on TV Land at 10/9c.

Tonight’s Olympic coverage includes: Coverage of the Champions Gala: Watch the stars of the Beijing gymnastics competition perform exhibition routines. Also, track and field finals. The U.S. swept the men’s 200m medals four years ago, led by Shawn Crawford, who’s back at the fore of another strong American group. But the favorite may be Jamaican sensation Usain “Lightning” Bolt. Also, the women’s 400m hurdles. BMX racing is one of the new events at the Olympics – an all-out, full-contact race through a twisting course with plenty of jumps. Though the event is unpredictable in nature, the American men have unmatched depth, featuring 2007 world champion Kyle Bennett. On the women’s side, Jill Kintner was the top American finisher at the 2007 World Championships. Defending Olympic beach volleyball champions Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh could confirm their status as “Queens of the Sand” in the women’s gold medal final (LIVE ET/CT). Their top competition is expected to come from fellow Americans, Brazil and host country China.
