- Chuck (NBC, 8pm): “In a 3-D edition, global rock star Tyler Martin (Dominic Monaghan) is marked for murder, so the agents kidnap the musician to discover who’s behind the deadly plot.” Unfortunately, they don’t understand his “My-plane-crashed-on-an-island-and-there-were-these-Others” story either.
- Heroes (NBC, 9pm): “The newly powerless Hiro resolves to help Ando become a true superhero.” Sorry, Suresh. You’re stuck with creating powers for yourself.
- Medium (NBC, 10pm): Season premiere. “Daughter Bridgette lands in trouble at school for drawing nude pictures of her art teacher.” She earned an “A” for technique, but an “F” for accuracy.
- For the Love of Ray J (VH1, 10:30pm): Series premiere. “The actor, singer-songwriter and brother of Brandy moves 14 beautiful women into his mansion and starts his search for love.” If Kim Kardashian can get a reality show, I guess her sex tape partner should get one too.

- Seven Deadly Sins (History, 9pm): “The sin of lust is examined in the opener of a seven-part series exploring the seven capital vices, including their origin in religious teaching and history’s worst perpetrators.” In case you needed some help thinking of a good resolution.
- Bromance (MTV, 9pm): Series premiere. “Brody Jenner is introduced to nine guys who will be competing to be part of his entourage.” Finding someone less annoying than Spencer Pratt shouldn’t be too hard.
- The City (MTV, 10pm):: Series premiere. “Whitney Port arrives in New York City and begins working for iconic fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg.” And by “working,” we mean she’ll be giving Diane free publicity.
- 100 Greatest Hard Rock Songs (VH1, 10pm): “A five-part countdown of the Top 100 hard rock songs begins.” On VH1, Daughtry is considered hard rock.

- Heroes (NBC, 9:00): “Mohinder may hold the key to rescuing Hiro.” I’m starting to wonder if Mohinder has the answer to anything.
- 20/20 (ABC, 9:00): “Teens put on a show in a chronicle of a Virginia high school production of ‘The Wiz’ that uses video diaries and interviews to follow the emotional drama of students.” Sadly, this is the same network that also put together the barely-watched High School Musical: Get in the Picture.
- Worst Week (CBS, 9:30): “Sam helps Dick choose the perfect gift for Angela after discovering he gets her the same thing every year.” Just for the record: Some things like spa packages and jewelry can be given over and over again.
- The Hills (MTV, 10:00): “Heidi and Spencer consider eloping during a Mexican vacation.” Whatever you do - avert your eyes.
(You can view TV Envy’s Master Programming Schedule here.)MONDAY 12/8)
- A Charlie Brown Christmas (ABC, 8pm): “The gang mounts a holiday pageant as Charlie Brown bemoans Yuletide commercialism.” Sorry, Charlie. Not much has changed since 1965.
- Boston Legal (ABC, 9pm): Series finale. “Financial problems may force Crane Poole & Schmidt to be put up for sale.” If the economy keeps going the way it’s going, that might not be the only thing ABC has up for sale.
- Two and a Half Men (CBS, 9pm): “Alan considers early retirement when Evelyn offers to foot the bill for Jake’s college education.” After looking at his latest 401K statement, he then realizes that retirement won’t come anytime soon.
- The Hills (MTV, 10pm): “Whitney interviews for a job in New York City.” Top resume skill: Able to effectively communicate in short sentences.

- Shrek the Halls (ABC, 8pm): Hopefully this Mike Myers laugher will help us all forget The Love Guru.
- Inside the Actor’s Studio (Bravo, 8pm): “Daniel Radcliffe, star of the Harry Potter film franchise, charts his career journey.” I’m not sure I want to see James Lipton enthusiastically talking about Radcliffe’s nude Broadway performance.
- Heroes (NBC, 9pm): “Ando, Sam and Frack try to restore Hiro’s memory with a comic book.” Any person trying to follow this series should be given an instruction manual.
- Boston Legal (ABC, 10pm): “When Denny receives bad news about the state of his Alzheimer’s, Alan goes before the Massachusetts Supreme Court to plead for access to an experimental drug that can help his condition.” Alzheimers? Maybe Shatner simply forgot why George Takei dislikes him so.

- Dancing with the Stars (ABC, 8pm): After ten weeks, it all ends tonight. Sadly, I can’t even remember the names of the first two eliminated.
- Samantha Who? (ABC, 9:30): “Sam invites boyfriend Owen (James Tupper) for dinner to meet her parents, but Owen and Howard don’t hit it off.” Seems Howard doesn’t approve of his relationship with Anne Heche either.
- Valkyrie: The Plot to Kill Hitler (History, 10pm): “Recalling Operation Valkyrie, a failed plot devised by German officers to assassinate Adolf Hitler.” By choosing this documentary over the Tom Cruise version, you’ll be able to save a few more bucks for Christmas.
- The Hills (MTV, 10pm): “Audrina confronts Lauren and Justin after rumors circulate that the two hooked up.” By “confront,” we mean Audrina has them refer to the television interviews she’s conducted on the topic.

- American Gladiators (NBC, 8pm): “Four amateur athletes who successfully lost weight are featured.” That’s exactly the way Wolf likes them: nice and skinny.
- The Bachelorette: The Men Tell All (ABC, 9pm): “Fifteen of DeAnna’s suitors dish with - and about - the Bachelorette who let them get away.” Thankfully, this version is not the one we would get on MTV.
- 46664: A Concert for Nelson Mandela (VH1, 9pm): Those helping to celebrate Mandela’s life outside bars include performers who should be behind them (e.g. Amy Winehouse).
- Verminators (Discovery, 10pm): “The source of a roach infestation at an apartment building shocks Mike.” There’s a reason why they say ignorance is bliss.
Even though she felt poorly perceived on her last show, Jo De La Rosa is apparently not afraid of the reality spotlight. Now the non-married ‘housewife’ of The Real Housewives of Orange County is in the process of filming her own show.
Those who watched the hit Bravo series remember Jo as the young woman who couldn’t quite get used to the idea of marriage and children. After living in the exclusive Coto community with her fiance Slade Smiley, she eventually bolted in hopes of becoming a singer. Although he was hurt by their break-up, Smiley eventually chose to manage De La Rosa’s singing career.
In Date My Ex, the former couple’s relationship takes another strange twist. While the dating series will have tones of The Bachelorette, Jo’s prospective suitors will not be living in some random mansion, they’ll be staying in Slade’s house.

Although Bravo has barely scratched the surface of its newest hit, The Real Housewives of New York City, plans have already been made to expand the reality franchise.
In addition to a 4th season of The Real Housewives of Orange County (and a 2nd season of the NYC version), the cable channel will soon be offering us The Real Housewives of New Jersey.
The latest spinoff - which is currently in production - promises to give us “best friends do everything over-the-top, from their decorating, to their dating and their fighting.” Oh goodie.
