Anniversary breakfast

NBC marks the 30th anniversary of the legendary "Breakfast at Wimbledon" final between Bjorn Borg and John McEnroe this weekend. McEnroe, of course, is lead color analyst along with Mary Carillo. They'll do this year's ladies' final at 8 a.m. Saturday on WMAQ Channel 5, with the men's final following at 8 a.m. Sunday.

Spool of 'Hard Knocks'

Football fans drooling for the upcoming start of training camp can slake their football thirst when the NFL Network fills the Fourth of July weekend with a marathon of episodes of HBO's "Hard Knocks" reality series. The marathon starts at 2 a.m. Sunday returning to the Baltimore Ravens' training camp in 2001 and runs straight through to the debut of last summer's series with the Cincinnati Bengals at 5 p.m. Monday. That series will run nightly at 7 until it concludes Thursday.

'SpongeBob' spice

Remember how Victoria Beckham, nee Posh Spice, was going to get a lot of acting gigs with her husband, David Beckham, playing soccer in El Lay? Well, she finally turns up as the voice of Queen Amphitrite in the new "SpongeBob SquarePants" episode "The Clash of Triton" when it debuts at 7 p.m. Monday on Nickelodeon. Goal accomplished.

Movie munchies

The stoner movie has been done to death, but "Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle" breathed new life into the genre in 2004. The sequel, which sends them to Guantanamo Bay, is more political, but it's not up to the stoopid inanity of the original. See it at 8 p.m. today on TBS.
