On TV tonight

The 15th Annual Young Hollywood Awards, 8 p.m., CW You may have never heard of the actors getting recognized at this awards show, but that's okay — the target audience for the CW has, and that's all the advertisers care about.

SEASON FINALE The Hero, 8 p.m., TNT A winner is chosen tonight, hopefully by having to best The Rock in a wrestling match/punching contest/swordfight. Then it's on to saving helpless civilians the world over!

Our Nixon, 9 p.m., CNN A documentary that uses Richard Nixon's home movies to prove there was a human side to him, after all. When he wasn't plotting to destroy people's lives or bastardize the electoral process, that is.

X Games, 9 p.m., ESPN The latest addition among the dubious sports in this contest is Gymkhana, which involves rally cars racing on an obstacle course. We're hoping for a crash course in learning how destructive that can get.
