Real Housewives of Orange County'The Real Housewives of Orange County'
(10PM, Bravo)
Hope the ladies get their manicures on before heading to Las Vegas in tonight's episode, because what happens in Vegas is going to have some of the cattier 'Housewives' baring their claws.

As has been the theme on several occasions this season, it's Lynne and Gretchen versus Tamra and icky Vicki, when the veterans get annoyed by how enthusiastically newbies Lynne and Gretchen are shakin' their groove thangs on the dance floor.

Meanwhile, the only thing Vicki is doing enthusiastically is dissing Lynne and her petite bod, which seems to be sparked a lot more by a certain green-eyed monster than, as Vicki insists, Lynne's obsession with looking young.

Obama'Presidential Inauguration'
(Check local listings for time and channels)
There'll be dozens of inauguration balls, parades and TV specials, but the main event -- leading up to the noon swearing in of Barack Obama as the 44th President of the United States -- begins at 10AM.

Evangelical pastor Rick Warren will deliver the invocation, civil rights leader Joseph Lowery will deliver the benediction and Yo-Yo Ma, Aretha Franklin and Itzhak Perlman will provide the celebratory tunes before Vice-President Joe Biden takes his oath.

He will be followed by Obama, who will take his oath of office from Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts, using the bible that Abraham Lincoln used at his 1861 inauguration ... a historical day indeed.

kennedy center honors'31st Annual Kennedy Center Honors'
(9PM, CBS)
Controversial New York Senate contender Caroline Kennedy hosts. Barbra Streisand, Morgan Freeman, George Jones, Twyla Tharp, Pete Townsend and Roger Daltrey are being feted.

And performances include Beyonce crooning 'The Way We Were' to Streisand, Denzel Washington and Clint Eastwood paying tribute to their pal Freeman, Garth Brooks rocking out to Jones tunes and Matchbox 20 singer Rob Thomas singing the Who's 'Baba O'Riley.'

But we're betting that you, like us, are going to tune in just to get a glimpse of Babs planting a smooch on her political enemy, President Dubya Bush.

home for the holidays'10th Annual A Home for the Holidays With Faith Hill'
(8PM, CBS)
It's the 10th anniversary of this heartwarming annual special, in which celebs show up and perform to help celebrate stories about foster care adoption.

Faith Hill hosts, her hubby Tim McGraw performs, and celebs like Melissa Etheridge, Gavin Rossdale, and Jamie Foxx introduce the real stars of the show, families who've made foster children a permanent part of their lives.

One family includes a man who, after spending his whole childhood in foster care, decided, with his wife, to adopt a foster child of his own. The special also includes a where-are-they-now segment with foster children featured in years past, as well as kids currently hoping to find an adoptive family.

double shot at love'A Double Shot at Love'
(10PM, MTV) series premiere
The full title of the show is actually 'A Double Shot at Love with the Ikky Twins,' as hostess and former 'A Shot at Love' star Tila Tequila introduces Rikki and Vikky, the twin sibs who'll be looking for bisexual love on the MTV spin-off series.

The basic premise is the same -- the Ikky girls will have a pool of 24 contestants (12 men, 12 women) from which to choose, in a format that's part 'Shot at Love' and part 'Real Chance of Love.'

All 24 will move into a mansion with the sisters, where they'll engage in the sort of love search reality show behaviors that are likely to give that 'Ikky Twins' title a double meaning.

The Shield'The Shield'
(10PM, FX) series finale
It's the show that earned FX its reputation as the home for edgy dramas -- as the HBO of basic cable -- and tonight, seven gritty, violent, corrupt, fantastic seasons come to an end in an episode that's more shocking and heartbreaking than you'll expect.

The question every 'Shield' fan has wondered about for seven seasons -- what will become of complicated Strike Team leader Vic Mackey? -- is answered, and not in the ambiguous 'Sopranos' finale kinda way.

As much as we might want to continue hanging with Vic and the gang for a few more seasons, the finale is as satisfying a wrap-up as loyal fans could hope for.

The real young people of Orange County

by Jane Boursaw, posted Sep 11th 2008 11:04AM
Bravo gets hipI recently started watching Bravo. I'm not sure why. Something about those reality shows is strangely addictive. Like, no matter how screwed up my own life might be, it's nothing compared to most of the folks on those shows. I'm pretty sure that's why reality shows are so popular. It's because they make us feel so much better about our own pathetic lives.

There's a show on Bravo called The Real Housewives of Orange County. Remember that movie Peyton Place? Yeah, it's a lot like that. Only the women are a lot richer, and the problems are a lot more complex than they used to be in 1957. Still fascinating ... in a voyeuristic-stalker kind of way.

BravoYou know they have to been ticked off at Bravo about losing Project Runway to Lifetime. Still, Bravo execs stood up at a breakfast in New York to announce their new schedule, all happy and smiling. The good news is that they still have some good stuff coming up, starting with more Kathy Griffin, another season of goofy Jeff Lewis, the house flipper, and -- oh, yeah -- one more edition of Project Runway. Should we call in the auld lang syne edition?

Here's the rundown of what's coming back for Bravo:

-- Project Runway: The last Bravo season (unless something changes) will begin in July 2008, with the usual cast of judges.
