Cable's search for armchair macho men proceeds without inter-

ruption. The new series "War locks Rising" (9 p.m., Discovery) allows viewers to ride along with members of a motor-

cycle gang that remains rather proud of its outlaw status. And unlike the action on "Sons of Anarchy," this document-

ary-style series is not scripted.

The Warlocks call themselves a 1 percent motorcycle club. It's not that they embrace the jargon of "Occupy Wall Street." That number refers to a report from the American

Motorcycle Association declaring that 99 percent of all motor-

cycle riders are law-abiding citizens. Members of the Warlocks beg to differ, or at least include themselves out of the vast

majority.

"Rising" follows individuals as they try to balance their allegiance to a violent subculture with their duties as husbands, fathers and bread-winners.

Want more motorcycle programming? "Philly Throttle" (10 p.m., Discovery) showcases vintage bikes, including a 1967 Norton Atlas and a 1931 Matchless Model X.

---No romantic fantasy goes unpunished in the new feel-bad guilty-pleasure TV movie "The Perfect Boyfriend" (8 p.m., Lifetime Movie Network/LMN).

Single mother and well-situated heiress/veterinarian April (Ashley Scott) thinks she's found Mr. Right in Jacob (Aiden Turner) at her high school reunion. A date leads to a whirlwind romance. Unfor-

tunately, Jacob is really out for April's money, and her family's. And he's not alone -- his scheme to ensnare April's bank account also includes his wife and co-conspirator, Karen (Jennifer Taylor).

---Creators Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant and star Warwick Davis wrap up their quirky series with the hourlong "Life's Too Short Special" (10 p.m., HBO, TV-MA). Davis plays a comedy version of himself, a little-person actor known for roles in the "Harry Potter" films, "Willow" and "Return of the Jedi" who has refash-

ioned himself as an agent to the diminutive, a self-described "go-to-guy" for the vertically challenged.

Gervais gives Davis all of the awkward and socially mortifying lines he used to write for himself in "Extras" and "The Office." In the special, Davis discovers -- from fellow "Willow" star Val Kilmer -- that a sequel of that 1988 fantasy may be in the works. The downside is that the producers are hoping Davis can help finance the project. Gervais' next series, "Derek," will appear exclusively on Netflix, beginning Sept. 12.
