9 pm: Big Love on HBO
HBO's polygamist family drama Big Love is back. On tonight's episode ("Vision Thing"), Bill may have just found a fourth wife in an attractive waitress; Nicki frets over Wayne's enrollment at a Catholic school after finding him playing with rosary beads; and Bill turns to his uncle for a loan when he can't raise enough cash immediately for the Weber Gaming deal.
9 pm: Hell's Kitchen
No, I don't know why I am still watching this train wreck of a culinary competition. On tonight's episode, the guys get the culinary dead weight/tarted-up cave woman that is Melissa and learn their latest challenge is to prepare three lobster dishes in under an hour. Those poor, poor lobsters. If only they were being cooked by the gang over on Top Chef.
