On Tonight: Summer Olympics, Ed Sullivan's Top Performers 1966-69 and Hustle & Flow

It's time for Saturday night TV–what are you watching?

Saturday, Aug. 11

Summer Olympics, 8 p.m., NBC

Tonight, Track and field, finals: men's 4x100m relay, men's 5000m, men's javelin, women's 4x400m relay, women's 800m, women's high jump; diving: men's platform final; volleyball: women's final. My 11-year-old is obsessed with the divers jumping into the hot tub after each dive, and emerging with the ShamWow. He keeps asking, ‘hy?’ and I keep saying, ‘because it is there.’

Ed Sullivan’s Top Performers, 1966-69, 9 p.m., PBS (check listings)

“Performers from the Beatles to the Rolling Stones perform hits from the 1960s.” Make your kids watch this with you. They will die.

Hustle & Flow, 8:30 p.m., Oxygen

It’s hard out there for a pimp.
