How Life Began, 9 p.m., History This two-hour doc talks about how single-celled organisms turned into Jerry Springer-starring rednecks. This is evolution?

SEASON PREMIERE Psychic Kids: Children of the Paranormal, 10 p.m., A&E It's like a real-life version of The Sixth Sense, with a medium and a college professor taking the place of Bruce Willis. Plus, we don't think they're dead.

SEASON PREMIERE Weeds, 10 p.m., Showtime Nancy has moved the fam to a beach town just south of San Diego. Just to escape Mary-Kate Olsen?

Supernanny, 10 p.m., ABC Wilson Phillips singer Wendy Wilson and her husband, Dan Knutson, are struggling to raise a 4-year-old son, his 3-year-old brother and a pair of 6-week-old twins. Maybe they're just mad their mom is in Wilson Phillips.


Last Comic Standing, 8:30 p.m., NBC Lonny Ross and Keith Powell head to Miami to find funny people who make fools of themselves. They should go to Tallahassee for that.
