BOX OFFICE: Moviegoing was down this weekend thanks to the Olympics, but that didn’t stop The Bourne Legacy from taking first at the box office. It didn’t do as well as the other Bourne movies but eh…still hot and it still did better then Zach Galifinakes and Will Ferrell’s The Campaign ($27.4 million) and Maryl Streep’s dramedy Hope Springs.

I can’t believe tonight is finale of Closer (TNT 9pm). It was only yesterday…seven years ago…that Kyra Sedwick pushed her way into the LAPD with her over sized bag and her best Georgian accent. Well tonight she gets the boot, and they’re kicking off the spinoff Major Crimes (TNT 10pm). We’re into day two of Shark Week (Discovery 9pm) and tonight Nick Lachey and seven other celebs team up with for real military peeps for a survivor like competition on Stars Earn Strips (NBC 8pm). Day one they’re jumping out of a helicopter – we’re going to be talking to him tomorrow – we’re going to need ask him about that.
AROUND TOWN: It’s DC Restaurant Week! Over 235 DC restaurants are opening their menus at a super discount this week. Lunch for $20.12 and dinner for $35.12. A lot of these are prefix menus so you can usually get three courses out of it. Not a bad deal if you’re looking to impress the ladies but don’t want to be that guy to use a coupon. You’re going to want to make a reservation though. More info.
