Plus, they discuss the year's juiciest stories in pop culture and share a blooper reel from Today. — Brie Hearn

The Hills
10 pm/ET MTV
Another season of the ridiculously addictive reality show comes to a close just when it was getting good. All the action in the past few weeks has reminded us that this wasn't meant to be a show about nothing. Spencer and Heidi have tied the knot, but they won't get their happily ever after just yet — especially with Heidi's mom ready to confront the terrible twosome. And speaking of confrontations, Lauren and Heidi have a run-in, but for once the former BFFs put aside their differences to reminisce about the good old (pre-Spencer) days. It's a safe bet this cease-fire won't see Season 5. — Karen Andzejewicz

Prison Break
9 pm/ET FOX
Now that we sort of know what Scylla is, that doesn't make it any less slippery. And just because the break between the fall and spring seasons begins after tonight's episode, don't expect that to change as new Company temps Linc, T-Bag, Gretchen and Self find themselves in Florida, working (at cross purposes, of course) to get it. As for Michael, he's in a mountain cabin in California, learning more about his family's Company ties. We also meet yet another Company bigwig, played by Kathleen Quinlan. — Paul Droesch

The Life a House Built: The 25th Anniversary of the Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Work Project
9 pm/ET PBS
While he won't go down in history as one of the nation's better presidents, there's little doubt that Jimmy Carter's post-presidential career has been one for the ages. This documentary explores his and wife Rosalynn's 25-year involvement with Habitat for Humanity while accompanying them on a weeklong sojourn to the Gulf Coast to help rebuild the homes of Katrina victims. — Jeff Gemmill

10 pm/ET E!
