What to watch


Intervention, 9 p.m., A&E: Shockingly, it seems some kids get high by inhaling butane or gasoline or some other chemical. Huffing, the kids call it. This show just heard of this? What is this, 1988?

Kell on Earth (SERIES PREMIERE), 10 p.m., Bravo: Reality TV's newest it-girl, Kelly Cutrone, has cameras following her around all day at her job as a fashion PR shepherd. Really, we're starting to wonder why viewers like coming home from work and watching other people work.

Men of a Certain Age, 10 p.m., TNT: If Scott Bakula were our apartment manager, we'd follow him around all day asking him what it was like leaping into the body of a pregnant woman or a baseball player.


American Idol, 8 p.m., Fox: Finally, we're on the last round of auditions, this time in Denver. And it brought Posh Spice back! It needs to British up the cast as much as possible before Simon leaves, you know.

Psychic Kids: Children of the Paranormal (SEASON FINALE), 9 p.m., A&E: Eleven-year-old girls don't need to have psychic powers to be creepy. Not after watching Stanley Kubrik's version of The Shining, anyway.

Lost (SEASON PREMIERE), 9 p.m., ABC: We find out what happened after that hydrogen bomb went off in this series' final season. For those who have no idea what that means, don't worry, the intolerable self-congratulating all your friends do is almost over.


Super Bowl's Greatest Commercials 2010, 8 p.m., CBS: This show rounds up some of the best commercials from past games to disguise (or is that amplify?) the fact that the last few years' ads have been really lackluster.

Launch My Line (SEASON FINALE), 10 p.m., Bravo: The winner is crowned and gets his or her line launched.

Leverage, 10 p.m., TNT: Luke Perry guest stars as a con artist pretending to be a medium. Hey, if it got Whoopi Goldberg an Oscar …


Surviving Survivor, 8 p.m., CBS: This network has nothing else, so it refreshes your memory of who all the contestants in next week's "Heroes vs. Villains" season premiere were. Will Richard Hatch be a surprise addition?

30 Rock, 9:30 p.m., NBC: Frank and Liz are roommates now, so they try to support each others' attempts to break bad habits. Hmm … maybe our friends are right when they say this is one running joke.

The Mentalist, 10 p.m., CBS: A car saleswoman's body is found stuffed in the trunk of a Bentley. Six figures buys you an awful lot of trunk space.


Shark Tank, 9 p.m., ABC: Some guy tries to sell an umbrella that straps on your body. But then what will we put in our briefcase?

Medium, 9 p.m., CBS: Allison keeps seeing the same guy's face on everyone she meets, including her husband. Wait 'til the marriage counselor hears this one.

NUMB3RS. 10 p.m., CBS: Marilu Henner and William Katt guest star in every fan of '80s TV's dream episode.
