Democratic National Convention - The Democrats get down to business in Charlotte. Just like the Republican party in Tampa, the wall-to-wall coverage will be online and on cable news channels. The broadcast networks start coverage at 10 p.m., and PBS (UNC-TV locally) has coverage starting at 7 p.m. Tonight's highlights include a speech by First Lady Michelle Obama. Here's the full rundown of what the networks and cable outlets have planned.
Hell's Kitchen (8pm, Fox) - The two finalists are chosen and must create one last dinner service menu, to be judged by a panel of world-renowned chefs.

Monkey Stewie) over the revamping of their dream home, and the drama escalates when Jeff buys a new house without consulting with Gage. Elsewhere, Jenni throws an engagement party to introduce her new fiance. Also this season, Jeff will hire a new assistant (Andrew) to help pick up some of Jenni's slack, and he has some some pretty serious clashes with his longtime housekeeper (and mother figure), Zoila.
