Thanks to the Fourth of July holiday, it's a fairly subdued week for primetime programming.
But if you don't feel like splashing out on fireworks at home, NBC has got you covered on Wednesday night with the annual "Macy's 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular," hosted by Regis Philbin. Elsewhere on Wednesday, TNT is offering a chance to catch up with the first four episodes of "Dallas" before a new episode airs at 9 p.m.
Thursday brings the second episode of MTV's comedic gem "Awkward," while Barbara Walters ponders the mysteries of life after death with an archbishop, a rabbi, a terrorist and the Dalai Lama (among others) on Friday's "20/20" special on heaven.
