Jake Pavelka, Penelope Cruz
TV was all about body parts this week. Jules creepily enlisted her son in her hair-removal regimen on Cougar Town. Those cheeky Canadians poked fun at their Olympic cauldron's bum leg. Penélope Cruz got personal with Halle Berry. And now that the Office baby has arrived, it's a perfect time for a good breastfeeding joke, isn't it? Welcome to Top Moments: Body of Work Edition.
12. Weirdest Mother-Son Moment: On Cougar Town, Jules needs help removing the wax-coated strips she uses to depilate her underarms. Grayson delights in the job, but he's not around. Who better to sub for him than Travis, Jules' put-upon, eye-rolling teenaged son? His discomfort is hilarious.
11. Best Do-Over: After getting the Winter Olympics off on the wrong foot, er, leg, with a cauldron malfunction...
It's delivery time for an eagerly awaited episode. Baby makes three, and Jim and Pam open a new chapter in their lives, in an expanded hourlong outing. Pam's contractions begin, spurring her and Jim to scramble to the hospital. As for their peers at Dunder Mifflin-turned-Sabre, the staffers try to comfort Pam with food and entertainment, and Michael nervously anticipates the birth. There are goings-on back at the office, too: Andy swells with jealousy when Erin has lunch with Kevin. Linda Purl reprises her role as Helene, Pam's mother and Michael's former flame.

Ryan St. Onge
The most anticipated event of the Games is this evening, with Kim Yu-Na of South Korea the favorite in the women's figure-skating final. She is coached by two-time silver medalist Brian Orser. The U.S. champ is Rachael Flatt, who has a skating great in her corner as well in 1976 gold-medal winner Dorothy Hamill. She "has been working on the finesse of my skating," says Flatt. Contenders also include Japan's Mao Asada; Canada's Joannie Rochette, who gave an emotional performance in Tuesday's short program just two days after the death of her mother; and American Mirai Nagasu. U.S. jumpers may not be favored in freestyle skiing's aerials final, but they do have two capable contenders in Jeret "Speedy" Peterson and Ryan St. Onge, who has not fared well since winning the 2009 World Championships. Also in prime time is Nordic combined's individual large-hill final, with Bill Demong (U.S.) the reigning world champ. On MSNBC, the U.S. faces Canada in the gold-medal game in women's hockey.

The Deep End
The Deep End
Five first-year associates are thrown into "the deep end" at a prestigious L.A. law firm in the pilot of this legal drama. Most recognizable among the youngbloods are Mehcad Brooks (Eggs from HBO's True Blood) as the group's alpha dog, and Tina Majorino (Veronica Mars, Big Love) as the straight arrow. The firm's managing partners represent a dichotomy — Billy Zane's character goes by The Prince of Darkness while Clancy Brown's is pushing for sainthood. Lawyers, start your briefs.

So You Think You Can Dance
Big Brother 11
8/7 CT CBS
It doesn't matter who is on the chopping block tonight because one of the houseguests will secretly be given the power of coup d'etat, which allows him or her to replace one or both nominees for eviction right before the live vote. Viewer votes determine the coup d'etat winner and the person can use the newfound advantage tonight or next week. It may seem unfair to Russell, this week's Head of Household who made the nominations, but it's a great way to get fans involved and to shake up the game.

Real Housewives of Atlanta
9/8 CT ESPN
The Los Angeles area has been without the NFL since 1995, which oddly enough was Year 1 of the X Games, the Super Bowl of action sports that has become a SoCal signature every summer at the Home Depot Center and Staples Center. The fit between event and locale is as flawless as a perfectly landed trick on a skateboard, motorcycle or BMX bike, of which you'll see plenty over 15 hours of live coverage the next four days. Skateboard Big Air and Moto X Step Up (like pole-vaulting on a motorcycle) highlight the opening night, with skateboarding legend Tony Hawk joining host Sal Masekela for all the adrenaline-filled commentary.
