Jon Stewart

Jon Stewart


The Daily Show, 11 p.m., Comedy Central

No one could replace the love we have in our hearts for Jon Stewart, but our summer fling with guest host John Oliver was kind of fun. In fact, when Stewart takes over again Tuesday, we're going to miss Oliver's charming British witticisms and outlandish excuses for Stewart's absence, like: Stewart was recovering from a procedure where he switched faces with Nicolas Cage; on an Eat, Pray, Love journey to find himself; or trapped in a Chilean mine with 18 other talk show hosts. (The much more boring real reason: Stewart was off directing the movie Rosewater.)

SEASON finale So You Think You Can Dance, 8 p.m., Fox

The final four face off tonight to determine a guy and a girl winner, bringing an end to one of the best seasons in a long time. Last week we said goodbye to Latin ballroom dancer Paul, probably the most technically proficient dancer of the group (three words: hip-hop routine), and Haley, who should've gone home weeks ago. So that leaves Aaron, Jasmine, Fik-Shun and Amy to dance for a chance to win a quarter of a million dollars each (!) and the SYTYCD title. No surprise since they've led the pack since the live shows began.

Web Therapy, 11 p.m., Showtime

We consider it our lifelong obligation to notify people when Friends reunite. So, heads up: Matt LeBlanc is going to be on Lisa Kudrow's show tonight!


SEASON PREMIERE It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, 10 p.m., FXX

Attention, Sunny fans: You might have to work a little harder to find Dennis, Dee and the gang this season. FX has moved this show to its new spinoff channel, the awkwardly titled FXX. Whatever channel it's on, we're just happy such a wacky, original comedy still exists. Especially after so many seasons of debauchery!

SEries finale Futurama, 10 p.m., Comedy

They mean it this time. After a long run that included a cancelation and a cable revival, this sci-fi sitcom takes its final bow.


Wilfred, 10 p.m., FX

Oh, sure, FX can keep Wilfred on its original station, but It's Always Sunny gets moved to FXX, which we're not even sure how to find.


Teach, 8 p.m., CBS

If you're going to school the nation on the importance of teachers, bring in A-list stars. Queen Latifah hosts this special from Waiting for Superman director Davis Guggenheim that pays tribute to teachers by exploring the American education system through their eyes. And just to make sure you're paying attention in class, other guests include Jon Cryer, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Rashida Jones.

SEries PREMIERE Hello Ross, 10 p.m., E!

If you long for the sharp cultural insights of red carpet correspondent Ross Mathews more than just a few times a year, this show is for you. In his new interactive series, viewers get to comment and debate on the pop culture issues of the moment. We're dying to know if Ross thinks Ben Affleck will make a good Batman.
