Jon Stewart, Stephen Colbert and Special Guests Rally for Sanity in D.C.

Stephen Colbert and Jon Stewart

Jon Stewart's Rally to Restore Sanity and Stephen Colbert's competing/companion March to Keep Fear Alive was refreshingly free of the usual liberal-vs.-conservative rhetoric and instead pointed a finger at a different adversary: the country's mass media.

"We live now in hard times, not end times," The Daily Show host told the crowd during his "keynote address" Saturday at the National Mall in Washington, D.C.

Roush Review: Ms. Griffin Goes to Washington

Kathy Griffin

One of the most unlikely—on paper, anyway—regulars at the Emmy party the last few years has been the infamously outspoken Kathy Griffin and her cheeky Bravo docu-reality series My Life on the D-List. Including this year, it has been nominated five times for Outstanding Reality Program and won twice. This year, her hefty and relatively high-minded competition includes... read more

So You Think You Can Dance

So You Think You Can Dance
8/7c Fox
Viewers can be forgiven if they're still adjusting to all the changes this season, such as the participation of the All-Stars and the surprise unveiling of a Top 11. The contestants, however, don't have the luxury of easing into the proceedings. Indeed, just as soon as it began, Alexie Agdeppa was eliminated last week, and tonight the remaining Top 10 take the stage hoping to avoid an early exit.

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.

Are We There Yet?

Are We There Yet?
9/8c TBS
TBS complements its Tyler Perry-infused Wednesday-night lineup with this newly minted sitcom based on the 2005 film of the same name. Rapper-actor Ice Cube, star of the film, is an executive producer of the family-themed affair, which tracks newlywed couple Nick and Suzanne (Terry Crews, Essence Atkins) and their two children as they face various blended-family obstacles. In the premiere, Nick comes to believe that the kids don't love him, and Suzanne updates her name — complete with a hyphen. In a second episode that follows, cash flow problems strike the family when Suzanne's credit issues come to the surface.

Top Chef Masters

Letters to the President
8 pm/ET HBO2
When a nation plays it as close to the vest as Iran, it's hard to know what goes on behind its borders, but a trio of documentaries seek to give at least a glimpse of what makes the country tick. The first is Letters to the President, a look at Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's correspondence with the populace. It's followed by The Queen and I on June 17 (8 pm/ET), a chronicle of a former revolutionary's relationship with the Shah's widow, and Be Like Others: Transsexuals in Iran on June 24 (8 pm/ET).

VIDEO: The MythBusters Return with a Bang, Smash and Pratfall!

This Wednesday at 9 pm/ET, Discover Channel's MythBusters — led by Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage — returns with a "Demolition Derby Special," in which our stalwart experimenters try to flip a bus (à la Speed), compact a compact car, and mimic a remarkable Lexus commercial.

In this video Q&A with TVGuide.com, Hyneman and Savage discuss the difficulty they often face in recreating "once in a million occurrences," with Savage admitting, "Sometimes it really kicks our butt."

Also coming up in the show's seventh season: another Alaska special, in which they try to sail a boat made out of sawdust and ice, a nod to Seinfeld (does double-dipping really spread germs?), and an in-depth expose of, yes, the age-old banana-peel slip. Says Hyneman of their look into the slapstick chestnut, "It's hilarious."

See everything the guys had to share after the jump.
