On TV tonight
SERIES PREMIERE Shipping Wars, 9 p.m., A&E A series about independent contractors for large, heavy or bizarre stuff. Why is everything a war on these shows? Calling it Shipping Bids probably just doesn't have the same ring to it.
SEASON PREMIERE Dance Moms, 9 p.m., Lifetime In case Toddlers & Tiaras didn't already ruin your faith in parenting, there's this one again.
SEASON PREMIERE The Game, 10 p.m., BET The whole gang has their own problems, but now Brandy is part of the cast. That should solve everything.
SERIES RETURN Tabatha Takes Over, 10 p.m., Bravo This is being billed as a "relaunch" of Tabatha's Salon Takeover, but this time Tabatha Coffey is bossing around more than hairdressers. Except the first episode features a salon. Makes perfect sense.
SERIES PREMIERE 24 Hour Catwalk, 10 p.m., Lifetime Four designers will compete for the chance to create their own fashion lines in one day. One very, very long day.
SEASON PREMIERE Let's Stay Together, 11 p.m., BET The show explains why Charles left Stacy at the altar. Saying the show needed a second season wasn't reason enough.
