Potts Picks: Today’s Best TV – January 30, 2012

8PM | SUNDANCE – 1ST SEASON FINALE
The Mortified Sessions
– In the first season finale, Breaking Bad Emmy winner Bryan Cranston talks about the free love days of his teenage and early twentysomething years, while Community star Danny Pudi talks about his relationship with his father, who he’s seen only a few times in his adult life. Here’s hoping this fantastic series gets the greenlight for a second season.

8PM | NBC
Fear Factor
– If the TMZ story is true (NBC wouldn’t confirm), this may officially be the grosses episode of Factor ever, as one of the stunts supposedly involves contestants drinking donkey semen. And urine. Go ahead, make all the jackass jokes you want.

8PM | THE CW
Gossip Girl
– Chuck continues to wig about Blaire’s impending wedding, while Georgina ups the stakes for everyone with her pot-stirring return.

8PM | FOX
House
– House gets into the blackmail biz when he tries to take advantage of Foreman’s relationship with a married woman.

8PM | ABC FAMILY
Pretty Little Liars
– Here comes (more) trouble: Hanna’s stepsister enrolls at school with the girls.

9PM | FOX
Alcatraz
– Rebecca is in a tricky position because of a bank robber from the past.

9PM | OWN

Suze covers the value of gold, rules of investing and sussing out money you may not know you have.

9PM | BRAVO
Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
Reunion, Part 1 – In part one (of three), Andy Cohen and the gang revisit the infamous tea party and game night fights.

10PM | BRAVO
It’s a Brad, Brad World
Brad gets devastating news from his father.

11PM | BRAVO
Watch What Happens: Live
– And speaking of the aforementioned Brad Goreski, he and his Family Guy writer boyfriend Gary Janetti visit Andy in the Bravo clubhouse.

- It’s the season four premiere of RuPaul’s Drag Race (9PM, Logo);
