"Rehab with Dr.Drew" on VH1 at 8:00pm ET. Series premiere. Apparently, Dr.Drew has decided the way to salvage his public image is to give up working with celebrities and work with regular people who are addicts. I don't think that was the problem. I think the problem was that putting someone's recovery from addiction on television is a little disconcerting, and the fact that he's kind of a pompous ass doesn't help that.

"Survivorman: Survivorman's Top Ten" on Discovery at 8:00pm ET.

"Behind the Music: Train" on VH1 at 9:00pm ET. Let's see if they talk about their recent songwriting technique of grabbing a bunch of those "magnetic poetry" pieces and throwing them at a fridge. Because if there is an explanation other than that for lyrics like "My heart is bound to beat right out my untrimmed chest" and "Just a shy guy looking for a two-ply Hefty bag to hold my love" I don't want to hear it.

"Boardwalk Empire" on HBO at 9:00pm ET. Third season premiere.

"Weeds" on Showtime at 10:00pm ET. One hour series finale. Say goodbye to Nancy Botwin and crew. On the one hand it seems like this has run its course and is more than ready to be retired. On the other, this going off the air means Justin Kirk has time for that awful "Animal Practice" show.

Genevieve Burgess Is thrilled to have worthwhile television to write about again. At least for the moment.
