9PM | WE
Downsized

9PM | FUSE
Red Hot Chili Peppers Live From the Roxy
– The title says it all: Peppers, live, Roxy Theatre in Los Angeles.

10PM | TLC – SERIES PREMIERE
Big Sexy

10PM | FOOD NETWORK – 9TH SEASON PREMIERE
Chopped Champions
– I know, I know, I don’t understand Food Network’s season premieres and finales either … I’m still not exactly sure when the last season ended. But hey, we’re getting new episodes of Chopped, so what’s there to complain about? Tonight’s ep kicks off the Champions’ Tournament, in which four past winners return to compete for a $50,000 grand prize. Among the mystery basket items: antelope and pie crust. Antelope pie? I stand corrected that there’s no way to make pie a bad thing.

10PM | SUNDANCE – SERIES PREMIERE
Quirky
– This reality series follows the company of the same name, which gives Regular Joe and Jane inventors the chance to see their products actually make it to the marketplace. And tonight’s premiere includes the coolest power strip you’ll ever see, once which … ah, here’s the link. You’re so gonna wanna buy it.

10PM | MTV
Teen Mom
Maci wonders whether or not she should continue her education, Farrah has a huge fight with her ‘rents about moving, Catelynn has a reunion with her dad and Amber tries to reconnect with Gary. And his Belden Lineman Camp t-shirt, I assume.

9PM | CURRENT
50 Documentaries to See Before You Die
– The fifth, and final, part of Morgan Spurlock‘s miniseries about documentaries includes the top 10 picks, i.e. Roger & Me, An Inconvenient Truth, Hoop Dreams and, yes, Super Size Me.

9PM | WE – 2ND SEASON PREMIERE
Downsized
– The Bruce family is back for another season, and though, at first, their financial situation appears to have improved, unexpected health woes challenge them again. In tonight’s premiere, husband Todd wants to use the fam’s savings to buy a house instead of renting, but wife Laura is skittish about emptying their bank account. The unfortunately well-timed series may hit a little too close to home for a lot of people, but I highly recommend giving it a chance … the Bruces are an endearing family, and though you’ll probably yell at the TV screen with some of their financial decisions, it’ll also make you rethink some of your own.
