Take one look at Cameron's visiting mother, Barb (Celia Weston), and it's easy to see the apple didn't fall far from the plus-size personality tree. And Mitchell goes out of his way to explain that he's always found her unconditional love and openness touching. Of course, "touching" is the operative word here, and as far as Mitchell is concerned, there's way too much of it. Meanwhile, Haley calls it quits with Dylan, but the person who suffers the most from their devastating breakup is — Phil? — Joe Friedrrich

Cartoon Network premieres its first original CGI-animated movie tonight. Based on the comic-book series of the same name, the film revolves around a half-human, half-monster teenager who's struggling to find his place in life. Though his mom wants him to follow ordinary teen pursuits, his dad — a fire-breathing Kaiju monster — has different ideas. Jesse Head, Dana Delany and Kevin Michael Richardson head up the voice cast. — Brie Hearn

NBA Basketball

The LeBron James-led Heat dynasty may be a work in progress, but the team's head-to-head battle for Sunshine State supremacy got off to a flying start when Miami scorched Orlando 96-70 on Oct. 29. The second of four regular-season showdowns is tonight at Orlando's Amway Center, a new palace purported to be as big an attraction in central Florida as the boffo James-Dwayne Wade-Chris Bosh trio in South Beach. Look for Rashard Lewis and ex-Heat guard Quentin Richardson to get some early looks for the Magic after the pair shot a combined 0-for-14 in the first meeting. — Roger Leister
