On TV tonight

SERIES PREMIERE Shaq Vs., 9 p.m., ABC The basketball star gets his own show, squaring off against other athletes in their own sports — like playing football against the Pittsburgh Steelers' Ben Roethlisberger. Because if there's one thing we think of when we hear Shaquille O'Neal, it's "well-rounded athlete."

SEASON FINALE Miami Social, 9 p.m., Bravo Sorah tells George she is severing all ties to him, while Lina blows off dinner with his mother. What a smooth guy.

SEASON PREMIERE The Universe, 9 p.m., History The Earth is threatened by "death stars;" that's so much cooler than global thermonuclear war.

SERIES PREMIERE Masters of Reception, 10 p.m., TLC You'd think a New Jersey wedding-planning family would be full of stereotypes and drama, but sadly, they seem relatively normal.

SEASON PREMIERE Flipping Out, 10 p.m., Bravo Jeff has to put his house-flipping on hold to work on remodeling and interior design. Why, did something happen to the housing market?

SERIES PREMIERE House of Jazmin, 10:30 p.m., MTV A 20-year-old tries to run a fashion label. Note we say "tries."
