(8PM ET, NBC)
The name's Bartowski. Chuck Bartowski.

As part of his spy guy training, Chuck gets lessons in the fine art of seduction from 007-ish veteran spy Roan Montgomery (guest John Larroquette). Chuck's "practice" partner: Sarah. And it's hot. In fact, Charah relationship fans will be happy with much of tonight's episode, which finds the Nerd Herder coached to use ladies man skills to retrieve a data chip from a wily female spy.

With Roan's advice, Chuck also gets the nerve to spill his feelings to his spy handler/fake girlfriend. But, as any true tube fan knows, you can't hook up a supercouple too early in a show, and that's where a surprise guest waiting at Sarah's apartment comes in ...

Super Skank Wednesday: More life lessons from celebreality

by Kristin Sample, posted Aug 13th 2008 12:02PM
New York Goes to HollywoodWelcome to Super Skank Wednesday. This is where I celebrate the awesomely skanky people on the following shows: I Love Money, Charm School, New York Goes to Hollywood, and The Surreal Life. Basically, I'll discuss the skankalicious shows that make VH1 the network it is today.

Today I have some life lessons from celebreality. You readers know how grateful I am to VH1 for the many cautionary tales and moral exemplars it has provided me. I'll give you a few things I learned from I Love Money and New York Goes to Hollywood after the jump.

(And by the way, I think I Want To Work for Diddy might be the sleeper hit of the summer. I included some life lessons from that show, too.)

What to Watch Monday, Aug. 4

'New York Goes to Hollywood'
(10PM, VH1) series premiere
LaLaLand, you've been warned: New York's on her way to town, and she's looking to crash the A-list.

That would be Tiffany "New York" Pollard, of course, the Flavor Flav reject who rode her 'Flavor of Love' reality show spin-off, 'I Love New York,' to the top of the reality world A-list and now wants to be a serious A-list actress. Seriously.

So she's leaving behind Tailor Made, the fiancé she met on Seasoon 2, and setting up camp in Hollywood, where she hopes to add to a slim resume that so far includes a stint playing herself on an episode of 'Nip/Tuck.' When the feisty diva hits town, she decides the best way to make her intentions known is to throw a party.

But despite her A-list aspirations for the guest list, the group of people who actually show up provide a bit of a reality check.

Diddy really needs a good assistant

Diddy in a suitHopefully, the hip-hop mogul will get one on VH1's I Want To Work for Diddy premiering this summer. Apparently, Diddy's staff is not doing their jobs. He was almost snubbed from his own party this weekend. He hosted a bash at Lily Pond in the Hamptons and almost didn't get in because the club was at capacity with over 1,000 people ready to get drunk and crunk with the rapper.

The artist-formerly-known-as-Puffy was denied his grand entrance (a three car procession of Cadillac Escalades). The fleet was forced to turn around and the Making the Band host had to go in the back door. Once he got in the club, the DJ turned off the music for fifteen minutes while the V.I.P. room was readied for his highness. That will show everyone a good time. Don't do the grand entrance. Just turn off the music and make everyone wait so you can get settled.

See, if he only had a good assistant... Hopefully, he'll find what he's looking for on his new VH1 show. I Want to Work for Diddy comes out in August.
