What to Watch Tuesday, April 21

Rescue Me'Rescue Me'
(10PM, FX)
Only Tommy Gavin could hatch a plan as bizarre – and bizarrely effective – as this.

When he finds out Colleen and Bart (aka "Black Shawn") plan to get married, he decides the best way to break them up is to complicate their relationship by encouraging his daughter to have sex.

Elsewhere in what is proving to be one of the show's funniest, best seasons, Franco and Mike butt heads over their differing viewpoints on 9/11, Mike – who seems oddly smarter, for the most part, this season – gets a new idea for a theme bar, Tommy meets Sheila's new therapist and Sean meets up with the creepiest back doctor ever.

'A Beautiful Mind' Oscar-winning screenwriter Akiva Goldsman penned this episode in which Olivia sees a suicide happen in Grand Central Station ... while she's in Boston.

'The Phone'
(10PM, MTV) series premiere
It's like 'The Amazing Race' minus Phil Keoghan, but produced by Justin Timberlake.

'American Idol'
(8PM, Fox)
Seven contestants perform, but only five will be left standing after tomorrow night's double elimination. Any guesses as to who'll make that top five cut?

'My Boys'
(10:30PM, TBS)
They're both talented sportswriters and they're making a great couple so far, but PJ and Bobby are about to find out one area where they're not so compatible when she turns out to be uber-competitive with him during the gang's board game marathon.

And another one bites the dust: Donna explains to Kelly how she and David are on their way to becoming a part of that '50 percent of all marriages end in divorce' statistic.

'The Real Housewives of New York City'

(10PM, Bravo)
Jill's feathers are ruffled when Kelly invites all the housewives to a Halloween costume party she's hosting, then doesn't bother to show up herself. But Mrs. Zarin might just land on the dookie list herself when she gives a radio interview in which she relates how tough the bad economy has been on the rich.

'Life After People'
(10PM, History) series premiere
What would happen to the planet if humans no longer existed? That's the focus of this new series. Our money's on dogs to take over the whole operation.
