On TV tonight
SEASON PREMIERE One Tree Hill, 8 p.m., CW It's time for one last season, the show's ninth, to wrap things up. How are Brooke and Julian doing with the kids, anyway?
SERIES PREMIERE Are You There, Chelsea?, 8:30 p.m., NBC Chelsea Handler's new show is kind of about her, and has her in it, but Laura Prepon from That '70s Show is the star. Sure, she can't play herself in her 20s, but Handler really needs a new agent.
People's Choice Awards 2012, 9 p.m., CBS Let's get this one in before the "real" awards shows start up, shall we? It's not like the nameless rabble voting in this could pick an Oscar winner, you know.
SEASON PREMIERE Only in America With Larry the Cable Guy, 9 p.m., History Of course History Channel sends Larry the Cable Guy to Alaska. Because according to them, that's the only state in the union worth being on TV.
Amazing Eats, 9 p.m., Travel Hey, Travel Channel, knock it off with all the food shows. We have a network for that.
SEASON PREMIERE Face Off, 10 p.m., SyFy Another season of people doing things with makeup that are unbelievably good, just so we can suddenly become experts in their trade and say they stink at it.
