Biggest Loser

NBA Star Steve Nash Salutes Canadian Icon Terry Fox for ESPN's 30 For 30

30 for 30

Imagine running a marathon. Now imagine doing that every day for 143 straight days. With an artificial leg. In the spring of 1980, Terry Fox embarked on his ambitious Marathon of Hope, running across his native Canada to raise awareness and money to fight cancer, the disease that led to the amputation of his right leg. The cancer resurfaced ... read more

ESPN's 30 For 30 Revisits the Rivalry of Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert

Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert

Sports rivalries aren't always defined by wins, losses and hostility. OK, maybe they are when it comes to Duke and Carolina, the Yankees and Red Sox, and Ohio State and Michigan. But the story of Martina Navratilova and Chris Evert is as much about friendship as it is about Grand Slam titles. The duo waged a tennis tug of war that dominated their sport for much of the 1970s and '80s, but they also shared an off-court bond that rarely received any media attention... read more

Sons of Anarchy

Sons of Anarchy
10/9c FX
When we left Charming last December, Ethan Zobelle (Adam Arkin) was leaving as well, and as Season 3 begins, Gemma's hot-footin' out of town herself: Stahl (Ally Walker) framed her for the murder of gunrunner Edmund Hayes, so she's a fugitive. Gemma will seek out her dad (Hal Holbrook), a retired preacher, tonight. But the new season's biggest story line promises to be the kidnapping of Jax's son, Abel. SAMCRO members are pretty sure that Hayes' father, Cameron, took the boy, but they don't know where he is. Nor do they know if the boy is dead or alive.

The Jersey Shore

Jersey Shore
10/9c MTV
The Situation, Snooki and the rest of the "GTL" crew are back for a second season of TV's guiltiest pleasure. But this time, they're leaving the Jersey Shore behind and taking their fake tans and fist pumps down south to Miami, where more debauchery is sure to occur. Before long, the drama picks up where it left off, with former flames Ronnie and Sammi getting into a flight in a club after she accuses him of flirting with other girls. Doesn't sound like much has changed.

9/8c TNT
Star and executive producer Jada Pinkett Smith's character-driven hospital drama opens its second season. This new nurse verse begins with a harsh reality: Richmond Trinity goes out of business completely, prompting several staff members to land employment at a decaying hospital set in a run-down neighborhood. There, series protagonist Christina Hawthorne promptly clashes with the nursing supervisor. And the change is a bitter pill to swallow for Tom as well: He must relinquish his administrative post.

Ask Matt: True Blood Boiling Over? And More!

Evan Rachel Wood, True Blood

Please send all questions to askmatt@tvguidemagazine.com and follow me on Twitter at @RoushTVGuideMag

: Welcome back! This question is a two-parter. I'm in love with True Blood. It's so often described as lurid, melodramatic, overripe, etc. But the glory of the show is that it's all of those things while also containing moments of startling humor or tenderness, where we actually find ourselves caring about the characters, be they supernatural or just plain natural. That tension is what makes.... read more

Top Chef

Top Chef: Washington, D.C.
9/8c Bravo
The culinary competition series rocks the vote when it relocates to Washington, D.C., for its seventh season. A town marked by its fiery divisive politics gets hotter when 17 new food fighters square off in heats for top-chef honors and a $125,000 prize. In the opener, the chefs must prepare food fare that best represents themselves and their home region, plating their meals at the National Cherry Blossom festival. While one contestant will flower to a win, another will wilt and fade away. Series incumbents Padma Lakshmi, Tom Colicchio and Gail Simmons return in their usual roles, while chef Eric Ripert serves as a new series judge.

9/8c ABC
Sadly, we must scratch Sayid, Sun and Jin from the list of candidates to succeed Jacob. That leaves Jack, Sawyer and Hurley, who, along with Kate, are back on the beach and awaiting the final battle with the Locke Monster, whose motives become clear (or at least as clear as things get on Lost) in this episode. Speaking of battles, expect background on the epochal Jacob-Man in Black tilt. And Allison Janney becomes part of the Lost universe, playing a character listed as "Woman."
