Next Week in TV 7/7: Netflix’s ‘Point Blank,’ SpongeBob’s Birthday Special and More

By Mario Wario, DRWHO42, & Alyssa

The Fourth of July holiday came and went, which means San Diego Comic-Con is only 10 days away. But for now, let’s focus on next week’s television schedule which has a few gems to check out.

Sunday (July 7) will see the U.S. Women’s National Team go against team Netherlands in 2019’s FIFA Women’s World Cup championship game (FOX; 11 a.m. ET).

WGN’s The Disappearance (Tuesday, July 9; 10 p.m. ET) premieres next week, and it is about the “unexplained and sudden disappearance of Anthony Sullivan.”

Love all things the 80s? Well, how about checking out History Channel’s Battle of the 80s Supercars With David Hasselhoff (Wednesday, July 20; 8 p.m. ET). The two-hour special is about the 1980s KITT car revolutionizing the car industry in the 1980s.

Fan of Anthony Mackie and Frank Grillo? If so, the blog recommends watching Netflix’s Point Blank (Friday, July 12; 3:01 a.m. ET). It features two “unwillingly partners” teaming up with each other to stop a few dirty cops.

For SpongeBob SquarePants fans, Nickelodeon has a special episode for the fans titled “SpongeBob’s Big Birthday Blowout” (Friday, July 12; 7 p.m. ET). Do not miss it.
