8/7c ABC
Madison and her fangs might be gone, but Michelle, who keeps threatening to use her fists on any of the 13 other remaining bachelorettes who get in her way, is still very much alive. So keep your dukes up, ladies. But now Michelle has a problem she can't blame on her competitors: She must rappel down the side of a skyscraper, and she's afraid of heights. And Chantal, who's afraid of water, gets to go skin diving. Dates? Or torture? (And don't forget Emily and planes last week.) The group date is an appearance on Loveline with Mike & Dr. Drew, and when the dust settles 11 gals remain. — Paul Droesch

Just a few hilly miles from Heinz Field, beyond the Penguins' new arena, Pittsburgh sports fans have yet another shrine to excellence in the Petersen Events Center. "The Pete" is where the University of Pittsburgh men's basketball squad has won 51 times in its last 52 games heading into tonight's Big Monday matchup with Notre Dame, which beat Jamie Dixon's Panthers twice late last season outside of the Steel City, including a Big East tourney win. Both teams are flush with upperclassmen and potent perimeter shooters, led by Ben Hansbrough and Ashton Gibbs. — Roger Leister

Chuck has pluck, but does he have luck? He didn't have much last week. With engagement ring ready to go, he was about to pop the big question to Sarah when she was abruptly whisked away on an undercover mission. The big proposal will have to wait for our lord of the ring, as Sarah goes deep into the dark shadows and assists Mary Bartowski (Linda Hamilton) in a bid to finally crush monumental baddie Alexei Volkoff (Timothy Dalton). On the domestic front, Ellie and Awesome bicker over baby names. — Dean Maurer
