Bookmaking for Preschoolers: The Jewish Community Center of Pinellas County has a fun art project for kids ages 3-5. Make an accordion book with a collage cover at 10 a.m. at the JCC site at 5023 Central Ave., St. Petersburg. It's $15, $13 for members.

To watch

'The Biggest Loser,' 8 p.m., NBC The contestants receive a $1,000 shopping spree and get makeovers with Blow Out's Jonathan Antin while Ashanti sings. What? Did you think they were going to get gift certificates to an all-you-can-eat buffet?

'Parenthood,' 10 p.m., NBC Sarah finds out about Zeek's financial problems. You'd think he'd have saved up a few bucks from his years as the head football coach at Minnesota State.

'V,' 10 p.m., ABC We know this is an ongoing series and not a miniseries like the original, but it wouldn't kill them to advance the story just a teensy bit. Also, we know that the shuttle blown up by the resistance this week is actually full of humans and not a V tracking team. Try not to give away the big plot twists in your trailers from now on.
