REVOLUTION: SOUTHERN ROCK 2 p.m. Sunday, June 12 CMT (Comcast Ch. 58) Though most folks who don’t favor country music might tend to shy away from CMT, the station has really wised up in recent years, going the VH-1 route of providing smart and informative documentaries in addition to the video of the latest Nashville pop-tart de jour. Here, CMT wades into the murky swamp that is the heritage of Southern rock. Bluesier, brasher and often more open to experimentation than their Northern brethren, Southern rockers became a force to be reckoned with in the 1970s, topping the charts over older, more established acts. Here, experts discuss legends like the Allman Brothers Band, Lynyrd Skynyrd and the Marshall Tucker Band. BLOW OUT 8 p.m. Tuesday, June 14 Bravo (Comcast Ch. 50) We’ve gone a little soft on the reality show genre in recent months. Call it Reality Intoxication. Just when you thought there was nothing else left that could be turned into reality TV, along comes the Bravo original series “Blow Out.” Set in a ritzy Beverly Hills hair salon, “Blow Out” revolves around the trials and tribulations of hairdresser/salon owner Jonathan Autin, who started his own hairport after working in some of California’s priciest palaces of perm. Here, Bravo tags along as Autin tries to ride herd over temperamental stylists, picky and powerful customers, and the worst enemy of any beginning business: the books. ON THE SAME PAGE 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 15 AETN (Comcast Ch. 3, Broadcast Ch. 2) We’re right proud of AETN. In addition to all the great programming the network brings to our small screen, it also manages to field a number of fine, locally produced shows. One of our favorites is “On the Same Page.” Bringing in authors from around the country, “OTSP” has managed to land big names like Pulitzer Prize winner Rick Bragg while keeping a small, book-club edge. This time around, “OTSP” chats with children’s book author Patricia McKissack. The Newberry and Caldecott Medal-winning author of such kid-lit as “The Dark Thirty” and “Precious and the Boo Hay,” McKissack talks about making magic for young readers.

    Wait! Postpone tax reform and everything else for a while longer because the Senate is going to try to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act one more time before September ends and while it can do it with the votes of only 50 senators.
