Matt Lauer Reports, 8 p.m., NBC: We'd write a capsule for Matt's interview with former President George W. Bush, but half of you would think we're hippie liberals who had it in for Dubya and the other half would think we're cold-hearted conservative puppets who do whatever the GOP tells us. So just watch it and gape slack-jawed at the audacity of it all.
The Event, 9 p.m., NBC: We're back after a week, still being subjected to endless flashbacks and forced to sit through minor plot developments. This could go on a while.
SEASON FINALE The Bad Girls Club, 9 p.m., Oxygen: South Florida is safe again. Or is it? Now these girls simply won't be on camera anymore, so things could conceivably get worse.
SEASON PREMIERE The Fashion Show, 10 p.m., Bravo: Iman and Isaac Mizrahi continue to try to outduel Project Runway. Now! With more teamwork!
SERIES PREMIERE Auction Hunters, 10 p.m., Spike: What's with the proliferation of hoarding and junk shows? Here are two guys who try to sell off stuff from storage units, probably to more hoarders.
SERIES PREMIERE The Nitty Gritty, 11 p.m., Discovery: For those of you who can't get enough Dirty Jobs — or at least not enough of Mike Rowe. Those Ford truck commercials not doing it for you?
The 44th Annual CMA Awards, 8 p.m., ABC: Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood host performances by Taylor Swift, Miranda Lambert and Sheryl Crow. And Gwyneth Paltrow, for some reason.
WWII In HD: The Air War, 9 p.m., History: A two-hour followup to last year's series features archival footage in HD. Funny, we didn't think they had HD cameras back then.
Fringe, 9 p.m., Fox: Fifteen people all suffer amnesia when listening to the same frequency on their shortwave radios. They all forgot about cell phones, apparently.
Wartorn 1861-2010, 9 p.m., HBO: A documentary chronicling the battle soldiers wage against PTSD, or as it's more appropriately known, shell shock. Just in time for Veterans Day, too.
It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, 10 p.m., FX: It looks like Dee isn't giving this teaching thing up, agreeing to be a substitute teacher and taking her kids to the bar to see the gang's take on Lethal Weapon. This has to be at least half as good as that Die Hard thing they did a while back.
Smallville, 8 p.m., CW: Teri Hatcher guest stars to play Lois' mom, Ella. No word if half her scenes are in her underwear, like they are on Desperate Housewives.
Blue Bloods, 10 p.m., CBS: There's trouble when Jamie witnesses a crime in Chinatown. We're guessing it was either a health code violation at a restaurant or a parking ticket.
