The newly Emmy-nominated classic Canadian series 'Degrassi' is returning for an eleventh season (can you believe it?!) -- again, as it was last year, in telenovela style. Are you ready for seven straight drama-packed weeks of teen angst, heartbreaking sorrow and adolescent hormones? Cuz that's what's coming.

Season 11 of 'Degrassi' introduces three new characters, and takes on issues like gang violence, drug abuse, bullying, gender identity, sexuality and teen parenthood. As the school year draws to a close and the senior class prepares to graduate and move on, everyone realizes they'll only be in high school once so it's now or never -- so expect the sparks to fly.

'Degrassi' Breaks Down Walls -- Again -- With Transgendered Character

by Stephanie Earp, posted Aug 11th 2010 3:00PM


I remember when 'The Kids of Degrassi' first aired back in the early '80s -- I'm pretty sure I saw it in the classroom, the last refuge of an exhausted teacher in my downtown Toronto public school. I recognized the streets and even some of the kids, since my father lived in the area, and my mom was always sending me to artsy after-school programs. Even at that tender age, I recognized that 'Degrassi' was different from other television shows. Mostly I noticed that the kids weren't rich, good-looking or well-dressed.

Hey, in television that's already pretty out there.

a night for vets'A Night for Vets: An MTV Concert for the BRAVE'
(8PM, MTV)
The topic of U.S. troops in Iraq is a polarizing one, but we can all agree the brave men and women serving there deserve a welcoming return home.

Unfortunately, the soldiers often return to face issues with unemployment, health care and homelessness, and MTV hopes to raise awareness of their plight via performances by 50 Cent, Ludacris, Kanye West, Kid Rock and Taylor Swift.

The network is also co-sponsoring the Bill of Rights for American Veterans (BRAVE), a petition for legislative changes that will alleviate the problems vets often face after serving their country. So we'll forgive MTV for not playing music videos anymore when their primetime hours are devoted to such a noble cause.

'Gone Country 2' and 'Outsider's Inn'
(8PM & 9PM, CMT) premieres
Lorenzo Lamas or Jermaine Jackson, boot scootin' boogiers? The soap star and the Jackson 5 singer are among the seven new B-listers trying to break into the country music scene in 'Gone Country's' second season.

The rest of the wannabe line-up includes 'N Sync-er Chris Kirkpatrick, 'Fame' singer Irene Cara, Skid Row hair band star Sebastian Bach, 'American Idol' cast-off Mikalah Gordon and actress Sean Young, whose penchant for tabloid behavior should provide some reality fireworks.

Meanwhile, Maureen 'Marcia Brady' McCormick has roped fellow season one alums Bobby Brown and Carnie Wilson into helping her run a B&B in rural Tennessee on 'Outsider's Inn.' But unlike Tori and Dean before them, Bobby and Carnie don't seem to be 'inn love' with the idea.

'XXIX Summer Olympics: Opening Ceremonies'
(8PM, NBC)
NBC is planning more than 3,000 hours of coverage of the XXIX Summer Olympics on the tube and Internet, and it all begins with tonight's opening ceremonies -- featuring more than 10,000 performers -- at the National Stadium in Beijing.

Everything, in fact, is souped up for these international games, from the amount of coverage and the quality of the technology NBC will use to capture it (mini HD cams will be strapped to athletes for up close and personal shots, for example) to new events (BMX racing and the women's steeplechase among them) and the line-up of superstars competing, including LeBron James and Dwyane Wade on the U.S. men's basketball team; U.S. swimmer Dara Torres, who's already won nine medals as she heads into her fifth Olympics; and American swimmer Michael Phelps, who earned six gold medals at the 2004 Games in Athens.

All in all, this is one stretch of reality programming worthy of your coach potato hours this summer.
