I'm usually too big of a scaredy cat to sit through America's Most Wanted (Fox, 9 PM), but since tonight is the 1,000th episode and President Obama appearing, I'll cover my eyes and try to watch through my fingers.
Tonight's Saturday Night Live (NBC, 11:29 PM) has been getting a whole lot of buzz thanks to host Zach Galifianakis and musical guest Vampire Weekend. Prepare yourself for possibly the best episode in years by watching that incredible ad for Absolut Vodka that Galifianakis made with Tim and Eric.

Forget swine flu... the biggest pandemic right now is Oscar fever (sorry)! The 82nd Annual Academy Awards (ABC, 8 PM) is this evening. Be sure to check out TWoP for a whole lot of coverage.
Geez, it's already the Big Love (HBO, 9 PM) fourth season finale? It feels like just yesterday, the Blackfoot Magic Casino was first opening.

Watch The Bachelor: Jason and Molly's Wedding (ABC, 8 PM) if you learned nothing from Fox's Who Wants to Marry a Multi-Millionaire?.
Gossip Girl (The CW, 9 PM) is back from hiatus! IMHO, this episode sounds delightful. Highlights: "Nate and Serena explore the boundaries of their friendship," and "Jenny agrees to accompany Damien to a State Dinner but is unaware that he needs her help with a drug exchange."
Trauma (NBC, 9 PM) also returns this week. There will probably be an explosion.
I didn't think too many people would be interested in My Life as Liz (MTV, 10:30 PM), but the commenters on this article have convinced me otherwise. Tonight is the season finale and I'm sure it'll be... talked about?

It's time for the fourth season finale of Bad Girls Club (Oxygen, 10 PM). Expect spitting and a grand bikini parade!
The third season finale of Chopped (Food Network, 10 PM) is already upon us. Based on the episode title, "Chopped Liver," we all know the ingredients in this episode are going to be ridiculous. My guess: an entrée with the aforementioned chopped liver, cotton candy, Kraft singles, and wasabi.
Another big season finale tonight: White Collar (USA, 10 PM). Who's getting killed off? I've been stalking this show's forum and must say, you guys have some impressive theories. Kudos!

America's Next Top Model (The CW, 8 PM) returns this evening with tall girls! And they're in New York City! Also, the models are getting makeovers right off the bat, which means lots of tears! Yay!
So begins part one of two of The Real Housewives of Orange County: Reunion Special (Bravo, 9 PM). I hate Lynne so much that I'm not sure I'll make it through both parts.
I've been seeing ads for First Love, Second Chance (TV Land, 10 PM) everywhere, and I have one shred of hope that this show may be ironically good. I mean, based on that one episode of Sex and the City, watching high school sweethearts reunite can make for great television.

Kitchen Nightmares (Fox, 9 PM) is on tonight. As usual, I searched Yelp for the restaurant Ramsay visits, and the results did not disappoint.
The baby episode was nice and all, but I've been looking forward to Andy and Erin's first date for a while now. Luckily, it finally happens on tonight's episode of The Office (NBC, 9 PM).
Looks like this week's episode of 30 Rock (NBC, 9:30 PM) will probably be chock full of jokes about the NBC/Comcast merger. Any chance we'll get an Al Franken cameo?

Congratulations to Supernanny (ABC, 9 PM) for making it to episode number 100! Tonight, Jo Frost revisits some of her most memorable brats to find out how they're doing today.
End your week with the sixth season finale of Numbers (CBS, 10 PM). Don "misplaces" his gun in this episode, forcing Charlie and Amita to postpone their honeymoon. Cue this noise!
Who Do You Think You Are? is a British series that has aired on the BBC since 2004. I'm not sure I find the idea of watching celebrities trace their ancestries interesting, but the show rakes in over 6 million viewers an episode over there, and Lisa Kudrow was big enough of a fan to create an American adaptation, so it must be doing something right.
We all know that babies ruin TV shows, but we're curious to see tonight's Jam-Baby double episode of The Office, if only to see how the staff of Dunder-Mifflin can mess up a childbirth. After all, messing up someone's wedding is not only funny, it's easy, but effing with the delivery of a baby is a proposition fraught with disaster. Perhaps that's why the promos focus less on wackiness and more on heartstring-pulling. I guess nobody wants to see a baby fall through a drop-ceiling.
In the few months since NBC announced that it was cancelling Southland because it was too gritty and whatnot and TNT's subsequent pick-up, I've come to terms with this decision. In fact, I'm even weirdly grateful that it went down that way, mostly because this show can keep its hard-hitting look and feel on cable in a way that network television just doesn't allow for. But also because I think that this worthy show has generated more press this way than it ever would have had it aired on NBC in the fall as previously planned. (As a midseason replacement in the spring of 2009, it was barely a blip on most people's radars, or DVRs, as it was.)
