Bookmark and Share

The Perfect Teacher (8pm, Lifetime Movie) - David Charvet plays a teacher who is stalked by an amorous student (Megan Park) who is used to getting what she wants and refuses to accept his disinterest.

2010 MTV Video Music Awards (9pm, MTV) - The 27th annual VMA awards are hosted by Chelsea Handler and features performances by Justin Bieber, Kanye West, Florence and the Machine, Drake, and B.o.B.  Also look for the cast of "Jersey Shore," Katy Perry, the cast of "Glee," Cher, Ellen DeGeneres, Ke$ha, Nicki Minaj, Emma Stone, Penn Badgley, Trey Songz, Selena Gomez, and Ne-Yo. This also airs on VH1.

Great Food Truck Race (9pm, Food) - The remaining teams go to Jonesboro, Tennessee, population 5000, where they must cook a five-course meal in the style of a pioneer-era chuck wagon. I'm already missing the shaggy Jimmy Fallon look-alike from Austin Daily Press.

True Blood (9pm, HBO) - In the third season finale, Eric's overwhelming thirst for revenge against Russell presents a moral dilemma (does that mean they both didn't fry and die in the previous episode?). Meanwhile, a frustrated Sookie gives serious consideration to a life without vampires, and Jason thinks about yet another new career.

My Boys (10pm, TBS) - Back-to-back new episodes end out the season. In the first, PJ and her crew consider finding a new bar when irritating college grads overrun their favorite one, and Mike's courtship with Marcia blossoms. In the finale episode, Mike plans a birthday party for Marcia and gets the gang to help, but PJ may miss party prep because of work. Also, London is calling for Stephanie and Brandon must make a game-changing decision. Rachel Harris guest stars in both episodes.

Mad Men (10pm, AMC) - Peggy and Joan are forced to deal with rambunctious office shenanigans.

Hung (10pm, HBO) - Also season finales tonight for the HBO series "Hung" and "Entourage" (10:30). On "Hung," Ray thinks he may have a shot at reconciling with Jessica, but Lenore isn't ready to give up her star employee. On "Entourage," Ari's emotional outburst threatens to undermine his wife's surprise birthday party, and the guys worry that Vince's behavior has reached the point of no return.
