No new “Lost” tonight. W . . . T . . . . F?
“30 for 30” (8 p.m., ESPN2). The fantastic sports documentary series continues with a look at Dolphins running back Ricky Williams and his mind-blowing leave of absence from the NFL in 2004, when he went walkabouting in Australia, attended a holistic college in the Sierra foothills and, oh, I’m just guessing here, smoked a LOT of pot. The guy’s a fascinating character, not your average slacker.
“Glee” (9 p.m., Fox). Am I the only one on the planet who kinda hated the Madonna-centric episode last week? I thought it felt totally forced and contrived. But tonight looks encouraging: Kristin Chenoweth is back, reprising her role as former-glee-star-turned-town-drunk April. She hit Sue Sylvester-like heights on the brilliant scale in her first guest spot in the fall. This should be a good one.
“Justified” (10 p.m., FX). The Crowder clan tries to kill Ava, and but have to go through Raylan first. I’ve been loving these last couple of episodes. The series really shines when it’s set in the Kentucky backwoods and incorporates Raylan’s history.
“Late Show with David Letterman” (11:35 p.m., CBS). Courtney Love is back with a new band and a new face. She’s the guest and then her reformed band Hole performs (she’s the only original band member though). This could be a total train wreck or a cool flashback to the ’90s. I’m leaning toward the former.
“Deadliest Catch” (9 p.m., Discovery). The crews are tormented by big waves and cruel pranks. Like the ol’ “hide the king crab in the toilet”? Ouch.
“Parenthood” (10 p.m., NBC). I’ve lost track of what’s going on. Let’s just say general family drama.
“Chopped” (10 p.m., Food Network). Among the secret ingredients: tofu skins. Yeah, I don’t know what those are either.
“Deadliest Warrior” (10 p.m., Spike). Dude TV at its finest. Tonight it’s a matchup between Attila the Hun and Alexander the Great. I’d pick Alexander. He was pretty great.
Catch a score
NBA playoffs: Thunder at Lakers (7:30 p.m., TNT). Hmmm, the most exciting young team in the league against the evil empire and its struggling superstar? I’d watch that and I’m not even a big NBA fan. I do love watching the Lakers lose though, so fingers crossed . . . .
“Dancing With the Stars” (8 p.m., ABC). Will anyone bother watching now that the Kate Gosselin train wreck is over?
“The Hills” (10 p.m., MTV). Season premiere. Come on, do you really want to see Heidi Montag’s new face in HD? If you really want to be that horrified, wait an hour or so and check out Courtney Love on Letterman.
“The City” (10:30 p.m., MTV). Season premiere. Nothing against Whitney, but I just don’t care.
