Sorority Wars

Sorority Wars
9/8c Lifetime
Lucy Hale, Courtney Thorne-Smith and Faith Ford star in this 2009 cable comedy-drama about the trials of Katie (Hale), a college freshman who hopes to follow in the footsteps of her sorority-legend mom (Thorne-Smith). Unfortunately, the Delta gals of today aren't quite what they used to be, and when Katie exposes the sisterhood's shady dealings, she becomes the target of a malicious smear campaign. Luckily for Katie, there are rival houses on campus. — Rhoda Charles

Fox Reality Channel Really Awards
10/9c Fox Reality
Tonight is Fox Reality's night of nights. Really. This is the fourth go-round for these awards saluting reality-TV accomplishment, so it's not too early to think in terms of "legends," at least according to the folks at Fox Reality. Other categories include Favorite Hottie, Favorite Villain, Really Totally Robbed and Favorite OMG Moment, in addition to the more sedate Favorite Host/Judge, Favorite Performer and the like. Really. — Paul Droesch

iCarly
8/7c Nickelodeon
Carly can get just about anybody to appear on her Web show, including Principal Franklin. However, the school board disapproves of the silly skits Principal Franklin participates in, so they fire him. Miss Briggs and Mr. Howard take his place, and their new rules make school unbearable. In an attempt to get Principal Franklin reinstated, Carly, Sam and Freddie devise a plan to make these newly appointed co-principals look like they don't know what they're doing. — Jennifer Sankowski

Tailgate Warriors with Guy Fieri
9/8c Food Network
Are you ready for some football... grub? If the answer is yes, then the Food Network is the place to be with an entire day of programming devoted to game-day eats, culminating in this hour-long special, which finds tailgate chefs from Buffalo and Chicago competing in a fierce parking lot cook-off before the Bills and the Bears do battle inside the stadium.

Saturday Night Live
11:29/10:29c NBC
Over the years, SNL has always gone after red-hot guest stars, and tonight's episode is no exception. With Latin pop-crossover singer-songwriter Shakira as the musical guest and hunky actor Gerard Butler, as host, lighting up the stage, there should be no shortage of good looks — and talent — on the show tonight. Shakira's third English-language CD, She Wolf, is slated for release later this year. Butler's crime drama, Law Abiding Citizen, was scheduled to hit movie screens this weekend. — Fred Mitchell
