FOX has an all new hour of AMERICAN IDOL – the auditions head to Dallas with guest judges Neil Patrick Harris and Joe Jonas.

The 9:00 Hour –

On ABC, CBS, NBC, and FOX, the State of the Union address airs until 10:30 (NBC keeps it on until 11).  The CW airs a rerun of the “Home Inspected” episode of LIFE UNEXPECTED – the homes of Cate and Baze are investigated to see if they’re fit temporary parents for Lux.  It takes what the incredible pilot did, and doubles my love for this show.  If you’re not watching, you have no excuse but to check it out tonight!

GHOST HUNTERS INTERNATIONAL is all new on Syfy with a trip to a 19th century penitentiary in Tasmania.  DOG THE BOUNTY HUNTER is all new at 9:30 on A&E.  There are two new episodes of MEET THE BROWNS on TBS.

LAUNCH MY LINE is all  new on Bravo – the first part of the finale has the designers making three new looks.  On MTV, you have another episode of THE REAL WORLD: DC – Erika gets her big break and Josh’s girlfriend visits.   NIP/TUCK has guest star Melanie Griffith guest starring as Kimber’s mom in the wake of last week’s tragedy; she ends up bedding one of the docs.  TBS also has new two new episodes of MEET THE BROWNS.  TNT has an all new episode of LEVERAGE – Nate’s wife (the awesome Kari Matchett) is held in a foreign jail, and the team needs to use Sterling (the also awesome Mark Sheppard) to get her out.  STEVEN SEAGAL: LAWMAN is all new on A&E.  Season 2 of BEING ERICA continues on Soapnet.  Erica and Ethan get into a fight, sending Erica back to summer camp and to a summer love.

Don’t miss the premiere of PSYCH on a new night on USA – tonight’s all new episode has WWE superstar John Cena guest starring as Juliet’s brother, a special ops Army guy who gets involved in a murder case.  There are some interesting developments on the Shawn and Abigail (guest star Rachel Leigh Cook) side of things, too!  The episode is REALLY good – laughed out loud quite a few times.  Seriously, don’t miss it!
