'My Super Sweet 16: Exiled'
(10:30PM, MTV) series premiere
Today's secret word: Schadenfreude! Who can blame anyone for taking a bit of pleasure in the discomfort of the 'Exiled' stars, who were plucked from MTV's My Super Sweet 16' and sent off for a reality (TV) check.

Yep, their six-figure soirees are a thing of the past, as their fed-up 'rents send them to live with the locals in Amazon jungles, the frosty Arctic Circle and the most remote islands of the South Pacific -- sans their designer duds and swanky cars.

How will self-proclaimed "divo" Bjorn, pampered princess Amanda and Gnarls Barkley offspring Sierra react? Like the spoiled kiddies they are ...

'America's Toughest Jobs'
(9PM, NBC) series premiere
'Ice Road Truckers' meets 'Deadliest Catch' meets 'Ax Men' in this clever reality/competition series, in which 13 men and women perform jobs like driving on icy roads, extreme fishing and logging in Oregon forests. The ultimate winner gets the ultimate payday: the yearly salary from every new profession mastered.

'Deal or No Deal'
(8PM, NBC) 4th season premiere
Fourth season premiere, four million-dollar cases in play. Them's good odds.

'Saving Grace'
(10PM, TNT) 2nd season summer finale
Politically incorrect doesn't begin to describe the fallout Grace and company must deal with after the death of a young Mexican woman, while Ham's still reeling from his own personal loss.

'Democratic National Convention'
(10PM, ABC, CBS, NBC)
Speeches by Michelle Obama and Nancy Pelosi and a tribute to Senator Ted Kennedy are among the opening day festivities.

'High School Musical: Get in the Picture'
(8PM, ABC)
You take the good, you take the bad, you take them both and there you have tonight's challenge, in which the wannabes must learn TV theme songs from the '70s and '80s. That's the good, of course. The bad: A surprise ending, which spells trouble for one finalist.

'Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations'
(10PM, Travel Channel)
There'll be no Egypt Hilton for Tony, as he hangs with local families and camps out underneath the stars on his jaunt to Africa.
