Skating with the Stars

Skating with the Stars
9:11/8:11c ABC
Worried about undergoing withdrawal now that Dancing with the Stars approaches the end of another season? The premiere of this new reality competition should help ease some of that pain. The concept is familiar: Six celebrities are paired up with professional ice skaters, and their fates are determined by a combination of judges' and viewers' votes. Vince Neil, Bethenny Frankel and Sean Young are among the stars who signed on to hit the ice, and Olympian Johnny Weir is on the panel of judges. — Jennifer Sankowski

Chelsea's Big Interview Special
10/9c E!
Chelsea Handler interviews three of Hollywood's top female stars on this chatty special. Gwyneth Paltrow and Christina Aguilera discuss their music-filled movies Country Strong and Burlesque, respectively, while Anne Hathaway talks about the romantic drama Love and Other Drugs. — Tim Holland

Monday Night Football
8:30/7:30c ESPN
It's going to be hard to top last Monday night's offensive fireworks by Michael Vick and the Eagles, but Denver (3-6) and San Diego (4-5) will certainly try. With QBs Kyle Orton and Philip Rivers triggering the two most prolific passing attacks in the league, San Diego's Qualcomm Stadium scoreboard and play-by-play man Mike Tirico's voice should both get a workout. The visitor won both meetings last season, when the Broncos and Chargers were still the only pursuers of the AFC West title, a crown of which long-time paupers Kansas City and Oakland are suddenly worthy. — Roger Leister

Public Speaking
10/9c HBO
Fran Lebowitz made her bones as a writer, but since her most famous works, Metropolitan Life and Social Studies, were published some three decades ago, nowadays she makes more headlines with her mouth than her pen. Fortunately, director Martin Scorsese has captured that outspoken loquaciousness in this amusing 2010 documentary in which Lebowitz discusses her eventful life and career, whether chatting with Scorsese in a New York City tavern or during an onstage discussion with author Toni Morrison. — Joe Friedrich
