On TV this week


SEASON PREMIERE The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, 9 p.m., Bravo Atlanta is back already, so why not Beverly Hills? Now, there's a former model married to a Grammy-winning producer. Camille is only dropping by once in a while, though.

MINISERIES PREMIERE Witness, 9 p.m., HBO A four-parter following combat photographers in foreign hotspots made by Michael Mann. Guaranteed to be stressful and intense.

SERIES FINALE Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations, 9 p.m., Travel Anthony finishes his series by spending a couple days at home in Brooklyn. Strangely, he doesn't know of anyplace good to eat.

MINISERIES PREMIERE Dangerous Grounds, 10 p.m., Travel It's like Witness, but eight episodes, and about a guy who went looking for coffee beans, not regional conflict.

SERIES PREMIERE Start-Ups: Silicon Valley, 10 p.m., Bravo Yuppies in Silicon Valley talk about how hard it is to be young and rich. Well, pretending to be rich until the IPO, anyway.


Election Night, 7 p.m. or so, Every Network Imaginable You know what happens. Pray there's no recount.

SERIES PREMIERE Caught Red Handed, 9:30 p.m., TruTV A show about undercover store detectives (or loss prevention, as they're sometimes known) hunting down shoplifters. Because nothing's more engaging than watching three guys tackling a single mom stealing diapers.

Chef Race: U.K. vs U.S., 10 p.m., BBC America Pizza trucks with wood-burning ovens sounds like an awesome viral video waiting to happen.

SERIES PREMIERE Prank My Mom, 10 p.m., Lifetime Vivica A. Fox hosts a Candid Camera in which kids punk their mothers. And never see daylight outside their rooms ever again.


SEASON PREMIERE Moonshiners, 10 p.m., Discovery Another year of the documentary about how to barter after the breakdown of society begins tonight. Get out your homemade stills and play along!

SEASON PREMIERE Conspiracy Theory With Jesse Ventura, 10 p.m., TruTV The Body brings his son Tyrel along for this season, and finds Oliver Stone's son Sean is available to sound off, too. Gee, where did they learn to question anything and everything?

SEASON PREMIERE Top Chef: Seattle, 10 p.m., Bravo Wolfgang Puck joins the judging panel, which apparently decided that trip to Vancouver was so fun, they should set a whole show a couple hours south for a season.

SERIES PREMIERE LOLwork, 11 p.m., Bravo It seems the content producers at are so fascinating, they deserve their own show. We can goes naow?


American Humane Association Hero Dog Awards, 8 p.m., Hallmark Forget the Oscars, this ceremony honoring exceptional doggies is the awards show everyone cares about, mostly because no one argues that all the recipients look great in their outfits.

SEASON PREMIERE Burn Notice, 9 p.m., USA Michael gets in with a Panamanian drug lord and can't get out. Strange, we hear it's very easy to get through Panama.

Grey's Anatomy, 9 p.m., ABC Now that Cristina is friendly with the old guy, who wants to wager he'll be dead or retired by sweeps week? Yeah, that is a sucker's bet.

Beauty and the Beast, 9 p.m., CW Vincent is in the newspaper after being videotaped stopping a robbery, while an engagement announcement leads to a missing woman. Proof that newspapers matter, people!


Undercover Boss, 8 p.m., CBS The president of the Tilted Kilt chain has to work in one of his own stores. It'll be worth tuning in just to see if he wears the outfit.

Ghost Adventures, 9 p.m., Travel The trio head to a mountain lodge to basically see if The Shining is true or not. Wear hip waders, you guys.

Shark Tank, 9 p.m., ABC Bruce Vilanch weighs in on a plan to teach baby boomers new technology skills in a virtual classroom. First step: Explain to them what a virtual classroom is.

Health Inspectors, 10:30 p.m., Food A biker den in Oklahoma violates the health code. Also, biker dens in the other 49 states, too.
