TV's Biggest Surprises (8pm, CBS) - Jeff Probst hosts a look at TV's 30 most surprising moments, which are commented on by the stars or producers who were involved: Ellen Degeneres, Tina Fey, Arsenio Hall, Regis Philbin, and others.
Top Chef: Washington DC (9pm, Bravo) - "Top Chef" moves to the nation's capital for Season 7. In tonight's premiere, we meet the 17 hopefuls from across the country (none from our area, unfortunately) who will compete for the top spot. Their first elimination challenge is to create a dish that best represents themselves and their region of the country (the southern girl makes shrimp and grits -- how original). Chef Eric Ripert (Le Bernardine) joins the show as a judge this season, so no pressure there...
Work of Art: The Next Great Artist (10pm, Bravo) - We liked last week's first episode (think "Project Runway" for artists). The premiere focused on portraiture, and tonight, the artists must craft a work of art from junk (or as artists might say, "from found objects"). Mixed media sculptor Jon Kessler is a judge.
Hot in Cleveland (10pm, TV Land) - A new sitcom about three 40-something women from LA who get stranded in Cleveland and like it enough to stay. It stars Valerie Bertinelli, Wendie Malick, Lane Leeves, and of course, Betty White. It's better than I thought it would be.
In Plain Sight (10pm, USA) - Mary helps her latest witness, a homeless man struggling with depression, find his birth parents.
