What to watch for the week of Oct. 31


The Women of SNL, 9 p.m., NBC: The female members of the Not Ready for Prime Time Players get their own tribute show. Since Gilda Radner can't be there, we have to wonder if it's worth it.

SERIES PREMIERE My Big Friggin' Wedding, 9 p.m., VH1: Couples from New Jersey and New York plan their weddings in a sort of crossover between Jersey Shore and Bridezillas. The series ends when they fill the world with their unholy spawn.


SERIES PREMIERE Mysteries at the Museum, 9 p.m., Travel: A globe-trotting doc that visits museums and galleries and tells the stories behind specific pieces. What's the deal with that Mona Lisa lady, anyway?

The Daily Show With Jon Stewart, 11 p.m., Comedy Central While the cable networks babble about nothing, providing election analysis that's both inaccurate and misleading, we'll be laughing at Jon Stewart and his crew making fun of everyone. If you don't laugh, you'll cry these days.


SEASON PREMIERE Secrets of the Dead, 8 p.m., PBS: Egyptologists try to piece together the life of a pharaoh, hoping to rewrite everything we know about the ancient civilization. Since we haven't heard about Psusennes before now, we're going to assume they didn't find anything earth-shattering.

MINISERIES PREMIERE Circus, 9 p.m., PBS: About 150 performers and workers pull together a circus in this new six-parter that will make you not want to clap for the elephants ever again.

Cougar Town, 9:30 p.m., ABC: Ever since we found out Courteney Cox might be dating Brian Van Holt in real life, we've had a hard time concentrating on the plots. This one does involve a Neti pot, though, so at least there's that grossness.


Community, 8 p.m., NBC: Hilary Duff continues her quest to guest star on every TV show on the airwaves.

SEASON PREMIERE I Can't Believe I'm Still Single: From Portland to Portland, 11:30 p.m., Showtime: Eric Schaeffer's series is back, following a filmmaker traveling across the country. Maybe this season he'll run into Charlie.


SEASON PREMIERE Supernanny, 8 p.m., ABC: Jo has to deal with a blended family where a teenager is abusive to the mom and the 4-year-old gets separation anxiety when the dad leaves for the day. We're sure it'll all be solved in an hour, though.

What Not to Wear: Dressing Your Age, 10 p.m., TLC: Clinton and Stacy try to persuade cougars to stop wearing miniskirts and teenyboppers from wearing mom jeans. Say, how old are those two, anyway?
