On TV tonight


Terry Fator Live From Las Vegas, 10 p.m., CMT Are we so desperate for new programming we'll feature this ventriloquist's show from the Mirage? Yes, yes we are.

Monk, 9 p.m., USA Monk assumes a dead hit man's identity in order to stop an assassination. It seems to us if the hit man is already dead, isn't the plot foiled?


SEASON FINALE Being Human, 9 p.m., BBC America The vampire has been staked. If he dies, who will the ghost and the werewolf split the bills with?

Class Act, 8 p.m., Ovation Morgan Spurlock produces this chronicle of a Miami drama teacher who taught folks like Andy Garcia and Brett Ratner. If he's so good, why couldn't he talk Brett out of directing Rush Hour?

The 25th Anniversary of Wrestlemania, 9 p.m., NBC Reliving almost three decades of wrasslin's main event, which brought on scores of pay-per-view events and made the WWE the powerhouse of theatrical violence. It's like a historical documentary for rednecks.

Jimmy Kimmel's Big Night of Stars, 10 p.m., ABC Kimmel makes it into prime time with a special featuring Michael Phelps, Tracy Morgan and Salma Hayek. It really is a little something for everyone.


The Human Family Tree, 9 p.m., NatGeo Several random New Yorkers had their genes traced back to where we all came from. Right, right, we know; Mars, right?

Defying Gravity, 10 p.m., ABC The crew start to experience pangs of regret over past choices. Like signing up for a low-budget midseason sci-fi drama.
