(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.

The series follows contestants as they traverse a major city to find clues that will lead to a cash prize. They communicate through mobile phones and a helicopter tracks their progress for the home audience. Also, there's an insane Vietnam vet in the helicopter that shoots at the contestants.

Well, most of that last paragraph is true. At any rate, I think it sounds like a pretty cool idea as far as reality shows go. The show is described as a "movie-like experience," and if that's true, I think it could definitely appeal to an American audience.
