On TV tonight
SEASON PREMIERE Survivor: Nicaragua, 8 p.m., CBS One tribe only has people older than 40, the other only has people younger than 30; once again, the thirtysomethings are squeezed out. Typical.
SEASON FINALE America's Got Talent, 8 p.m., NBC If Nick Cannon is the one saying you've got talent, does it really count?
SEASON FINALE Big Brother, 9 p.m., CBS For yet another season, we reward the most obnoxious person on TV with a cash prize.
SEASON FINALE Dark Blue, 9 p.m., TNT The first clue that a flower-importing business is actually running drugs: All the flowers are poppies.
SEASON FINALE Top Chef, 10 p.m., Bravo Despite hating the finalists because most of them had never tasted any Asian food, we're square just so long as Angelo doesn't win. Drama queen.
SEASON FINALE Chasing Mummies, 10 p.m., History The question remains: Are mummies really that difficult to catch?
SEASON FINALE The Real World, 10 p.m., MTV This crew will be leaving New Orleans better than they found it — mostly by not being in the city anymore.
SERIES PREMIERE Outlaw, 10 p.m., NBC Someone really wants Jimmy Smits to have his own show. The one set in Miami didn't work out, so now he's a do-gooder Supreme Court justice.
SERIES PREMIERE Top Chef: Just Desserts, 11 p.m., Bravo Gail Simmons annoys her way into hosting a spin-off that focuses on desserts, because no one on Top Chef likes making those. That should tell you something about Top Chef.
