8 pm: Beauty & the Geek.
What can I say? I'm a sucker for Beauty & the Geek. It might not be the most original or thought-provoking reality TV series on the air, but this "social experiment" from "Ashton Kutcher" always makes me chuckle. On tonight's episode ("Beauty Queen & Geek King"), the final two teams learn that some unexpected visitors (say it with me: returnees) could alter the competition, while one teammate makes a sacrifice that could change the outcome of the game. (Hmmm, Nate?)
9 pm: American Idol.
Tonight, Randy, Paula, and Simon finally reveal (after what seems like 52 weeks) who the top 24 semi-finalists will be.
10 pm: Lost.
I can't tell you how happy I am that Lost is back on the air again. On tonight's episode ("Flashes Before Your Eyes"), it looks like someone other than Jack, Kate, and Sawyer will finally get some screen time, as Hurley asks Charlie for help figuring out what the hell happened to Desmond, who's still exhibiting some rather disturbing precognition about Claire's death, while Kate, Sayid, and Locke plan a daring rescue mission to get Jack back. I can't wait!
