Watch it

“Chuck” (8 p.m., NBC). Chuck has nightmares and gets yanked from active duty by a CIA shrink played by Christopher Lloyd.

“Gossip Girl” (9 p.m., The CW). Serena throws away the past two years of story and character development and sides with her skeezy father over Rufus.

Record it

“How I Met Your Mother” (8 p.m., CBS). Ted tries to act smart when the gang crashes a fancy party. Ariana Huffington and Peter Bogdanovich guest star.

“Dhani Tackles the Globe” (8 p.m., Travel). NFL linebacker Dhani Jones heads to Jamaica to play some cricket. I predict that after an hour, I still won’t be able to figure out how it’s played.

“24” (9 p.m., Fox). The preview blurb says tonight “Jack goes rogue.” Ummm, hasn’t that been the past six seasons? Whatever. It’s stupid, but Michael Madsen guest stars tonight, and he’s cool. And ex-President Logan hasn’t been killed yet, and he’s always worth watching.

“Alien Galaxies” (9 p.m., Discovery). If you’re more into quantum physics than “Gossip Girl.”

Skip it

“Undateable” (10 p.m., MTV). A new series that lists things guy do that women find repellent. Um, is one of them watching shows like this?

“Tonight Show with Jay Leno” (11:35 p.m., NBC). Wow. Last week I joked about Leno being so lame and out of touch that he’d book Limp Bizkit. Guess who’s the musical guest tonight? Yes, seriously! Other awful guests include Donald Trump and Laura Bush.
