(You can view the whole Revamped TV Programming Schedule here.)
- Prison Break (FOX, 8pm): Season resumes. “Michael suffers the consequences of solitary confinement, Sona-style.” I hate to think we left him in there these past few months.
- Kyle XY (ABC Family, 8pm): Second season resumes. “Kyle returns to the Tragers to tell them truth about his existence.” Maybe ABC should consider stealing this show to fill their schedule. Otherwise, I’ll never get around to watching it.
- Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles (FOX, 9pm): Regular day and time. “John grows restless and sneaks out of the house to track down Charley Dixon.” Maybe they should have recast Edward Furlong. He would have filled this punk role perfectly.
- CSI: Miami (CBS, 10pm): Actress Elizabeth Berkeley guest-stars as Horatio’s ex and Kyle’s mother. Wouldn’t it have made more sense if she was on the regular CSI? Then they could have linked it back to her Showgirls years.

(Reminder: You can view the whole Revamped TV Programming Schedule here.)
- The View (ABC, check local listings): Elisabeth Hasselbeck returns from maternity leave. I’d gladly sacrifice her to the union gods for an end to the writers’ strike.
- Dance War: Bruno vs. Carrie Ann (ABC, 8pm): Here’s our chance to see if the DWTS judges can actually teach what they preach.
- American Gladiators (NBC, 8pm): “In the men’s competition, an engineer takes on a radiation-control technician.” The year of the nerd has now officially spilled over into 2008.
- Medium (NBC, 10pm): Season four premiere. “Allison has creepy visions of a boy being kidnapped from a toy store.” I never did trust that Geoffrey Giraffe.
- Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations (Travel Channel, 10pm): Anthony travels to Singapore for his latest season premiere. I don’t like traveling with crusty people, but I love watching them venture on TV.
- The Daily Show/The Colbert Report (Comedy Central, 11:30pm): Tonight Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert will crank out their versions of a writer-less show. God love ‘em for trying.
