Biography: Natalie Wood -- Sunday, July 17, 8 PM ET/PT, Biography

The lovely actress best remembered for her roles in 'Rebel Without a Cause' and 'West Side Story' lived a life that seemed designed for the tabloids. A child star at nine -- with a requisite pushy stage mother -- she blossomed into a serious actress and great beauty. Her on-again off-again relationship with Robert Wagner and her mysterious drowning death are all covered in this special.

What to Watch: TV Picks for June 20 - 26

The Marriage Ref - Sunday June 26, 10 PM ET/PT, Citytv/NBC

The second season of Jerry Seinfeld's comedy roundtable debuts to much consternation, since it was generally agreed that the show was a flop. To be honest, I'm really happy about it. I thought the first season was pretty funny and at least it's not another singing competition. Julianne Moore and Ricky Gervais join Jerry on the panel and Tom Papa is back to referee.

Jay Leno on 'The Marriage Ref'It's a common problem for couples: one person has a really good friend of the opposite sex, and the partner is skeptical and jealous of him/her. On 'The Marriage Ref' (Thu., 10PM ET on NBC), guest judge Jay Leno shared that he and his wife of 30 years had this issue as well -- though with a twist.

Law & Order: SVU -
Tuesday April 27, 10 pm, CTV/NBC

NBC must have heard I was complaining about the 'Law & Order' franchise and decided they had to surprise me with a wicked little treat. So they hired Sharon Stone for a guest role as Stabler's ex-partner, now an ADA named Jo Malone. Sharon sticks around for four episodes and I do sincerely hope the writers make full use of her ability to play smart snarky women you don't necessarily like, but respect.

Marriage Ref
To paraphrase a Jerry Seinfeld routine, what's the deal with NBC? Here's the latest: they have given the green light to another season of three new shows: the celeb-filled 'Marriage Ref,' the Guy Fieri game show 'Minute To Win It,' and Lisa Kudrow's genealogy reality show 'Who Do You Think You Are?' Yup, all three shows will be back on your TV come this fall.

Is it too late to ask Jay Leno to come back to the 10PM slot?

Ricky Gervais Talks Larry David's Antics on 'Late Show' (VIDEO)

Ricky Gervais Talks Larry David on 'Late Show'Being friends with Larry David must be a hassle sometimes, but surely it's never boring. Being stuck between Larry and Madonna on 'The Marriage Ref,' Ricky Gervais witnessed quite the insulting exchange between the two, which he was happy to relay to Dave and a national audience on last night's 'Late Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS).

"He accused her of being a man-hater and she said, 'No I don't hate men, I just hate you," Ricky said. Then when Ricky and Larry met for lunch in New York City, the 'Curb Your Enthusiasm' star's quirks really came out, and it was "like being on [his] show."

Biography: Tiger Woods
- Thursday April 1, 8 pm, Biography Channel

When illustrious personages reach a certain age or notoriety, it is common practice in the media to have an obituary ready and written in case of sudden death. I imagine Michael Jackson falls into this category, and I know when I was at a magazine, a certain low-voiced newsman was our main worry. I would suspect the Biography Channel's eponymous show works the same way so I'm surprised it took this long to get a Tiger Woods episode on the air. Interviews with himself, his late father, Wayne Gretzky, Lance Armstrong and Michael Jordan pepper the episode, and is timed perfectly for Woods' return at the Masters this April.

Miley Cyrus, Tom Papa on 'Tonight Show'Last night on the 'Tonight Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on NBC), 'Marriage Ref' host Tom Papa shared what he considered the best relationship advice ever given to him: to lie.

His sage words distressed the evening's other guest Miley Cyrus, who's been dating Aussie Liam Hemsworth for 10 months.

"Is he going to lie the whole time?!" asked Miley.
"Yes he is. You're going to lie to him -- and you're going to be happy."

Papa further explained his theory with a story of candle-shopping.
