“No Reservations” (7 p.m., Travel). Tony Bourdain goes to Dubai, suddenly not so golden since the worldwide recession hit. The food’s probably still tasty though.
“Bachelor Pad” (8 p.m., ABC). Series premiere. An utterly appalling-looking reality show pitting rejects from “The Bachelor” and “The Bachelorette” in a competition to win cash, hook up with hotties and avoid catching a disease. It looks prurient and pathetic. This could just as easily be on the “Skip it” list, but there’s not much on tonight and this might be so awful that it’s magnificent. Like “Jersey Shore,” or a sharktopus.
“American Pickers” (9 p.m., History). I’ve never seen it, but I hear it’s good and weird. Tonight features a guy known as the “Spooky Collector” who collects stuffed animals and odd objects.
“Last Comic Standing” (9 p.m., NBC). It’s the season finale, and the winner is revealed. You’ll probably hate yourself less if you watch this instead of “Bachelor Pad.”
“Dating in the Dark” (10 p.m., ABC). Season premiere. It’s not quite as stupid as it sounds, but it’s still pretty boring.
