Potts Picks: Today’s Best TV

Potts Picks: Today’s Best TV

(ALL TIMES ET)

10PM | BRAVO
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
Reunion, Part 2 – Does Kim Richards really have an alcohol problem? Did her sister Kyle really steal her house from her? Did Kim go to rehab? Will her fellow RHoBH castmates finally stop hinting at her alleged drinking problem and finally talk about it on the conclusion of the reunion? Will Lisa and hubby Ken go into detail about their bitter falling out with former houseguest Cedric? Was Cedric’s heartbreaking story about being abandoned by a prostitute mother when he was a small boy all made up? So many questions still unanswered, so here’s hoping tonight’s Andy Cohen-hosted reunion finally answers them all.

6AM | TCM
31 Days of Oscar
– The network’s annual month-long celebration of Oscar flicks kicks off with the 1933 drama Eskimo (a Best Film Editing winner) and continues with more great films than any of us possibly have time to watch, meaning this is a really good time to clear those episodes of Rubicon you’re never gonna watch off the DVR and schedule it to catch some of the many gems in TCM’s lineup.

8PM | PBS
Pioneers of Television
– This installment of the TV history series focuses on crime dramas, including The Untouchables, Mannix, Police Woman, Hawaii Five-O (the original, of course) and The Rockford Files, and interviews with Angie “Pepper Anderson” Dickinson and Rockford himself, James Garner.

10PM | FOOD NETWORK
Chopped
– Catfish s’mores, anyone? What the heck else are the contestants gonna do with an appetizer basket that includes catfish and marshmallows?

10PM | PBS
Independent Lens
– The film festival award-winning documentary For Once in My Life is in the spotlight, following the feel-good story of the Spirit of Goodwill Band,  a group of talented musicians, with various mental and physical disabilities, who get together and make great music.

10PM | FX
Lights Out
– C’mon, people. Remember what happened to Terriers, that other way underrated FX show you kept forgetting to check out? Don’t let that happen to Lights Out.

10PM | LIFETIME
One Born Every Minute
– Yes, it happens every day, but the miracle of birth still makes for compelling, funny and sometimes heartbreaking subject matter in this new documentary series, which follows the action in a maternity ward at a hospital in the C-Bus, Columbus, Ohio.

10PM | TNT
Southland
– So, that happened last week, meaning viewers are now on notice that anything can happen on this gritty L.A. police drama.

10PM | MTV
Teen Mom
2 Jo wants to get back together with Kailyn, but, single teen momma or not, she can do better than him or that other doofus she was dating.

10PM | USA
White Collar
– In an episode titled “What Happens in Burma,” Peter and Neal deal with jewel smugglers to help free a diplomat’s son who’s been accused of a crime he didn’t commit. And, Paul Blackthorne is back as Julian Larssen. USA should give that guy his own show, no?

Worth flipping to during commercials:
Melrose Place alum Thomas Calabro guest stars on a new NCIS (8PM, CBS);
– Brooke and Julian are getting married on One Tree Hill (8PM, The CW);
– On Joan & Melissa: Joan Knows Best? (9PM, WE), Joan comes up with a solution for her problem with Melissa‘s attractive nanny: she picks out an unflattering uniform for Dominica;
Seriously Funny Kids is the new Heidi Klum-hosted reality series that features, as the title suggests, kids. Who are funny. Seriously (9PM, Lifetime);
– On Detroit 1-8-7 (10PM, ABC), Fitch is a murder suspect while he’s investigating a triple homicide;
– The crafty Wendy Scott-Carr tries to blackmail Peter into dropping out of the race on The Good Wife (10PM, CBS);
– When Chachi sells his soul to the devil’s nephew, the only way to get it back is for Fonzie to abstain from kissing girls for 24 hours. Classic Happy Days (10PM, The Hub);
– On Kill It, Cook It, Eat It (10PM, Current TV), everyone loves chicken nuggets … until they not only find out how they’re made, but have to actually participate in making them;
Parks and Recreation scene stealer Nick Offerman – and, oh yeah, Jennifer Aniston – visit Conan (11PM, TBS);
– And Matthew Perry and funny guy Chris Elliott chat with Dave on The Late Show With David Letterman (11:35PM, CBS).
