Despite what anyone else thinks, Bill is serious about running for the Utah state senate, because now he's in Washington, D.C., to solicit support from a Beehive State congressman (Perry King). But while Bill may be the cat's pajamas back home, he's no king of the jungle when it comes to dealing with a powerful lobbyist (Sissy Spacek). Bill may want to get home soon, however, because J.J.'s stirring up trouble and Barb's tone deafness on the reservation isn't winning over many hearts and minds.

The Redskins may be out of the NFC East battle royale and the playoff picture, but that doesn't mean they can't have an effect on both. True, they rolled over against the Giants last Monday, but five weeks ago Washington gave the Cowboys all they could handle in a 7-6 loss (in which Tony Romo tossed the winning TD with 2:41 left in the game). For Dallas, this game at Washington is sandwiched between last Saturday's crucial upset of the Saints and next weekend's highly anticipated finale with the Eagles.

8 pm/ET CBS
The biggest concert of the year takes place tonight at L.A.'s Staples Center. Yeah, a few awards will be dutifully doled out over the three-hour event, but it's the stellar performances that most viewers will be talking about at work and school tomorrow, such as Kanye West and T.I. rapping "Swagga Like Us," and Taylor Swift duetting her self-penned "Fifteen" with Miley Cyrus. Lead Grammy nominee Lil Wayne also performs, as do Coldplay, U2, Paul McCartney, Radiohead and the Jonas Brothers. For nostalgia buffs, there's a Four Tops tribute headlined by Jamie Foxx and Ne-Yo.

Series creator Chris Lilley's bravura performance as not one but three characters made high school seem like more fun than it probably was.

OK, top this for a nightmare scenario: A disabled school bus is filled with kids who don't know each other, and who all suffer from obsessive-compulsive disorder, hyperactivity, depression, dyslexia, mood swings or other brain disorders. The bus actually broke down en route to the set of Linda Ellerbee's Nick News special What's Wrong with Me? (Sunday, 8:30 pm/ET on Nickelodeon). The funny thing is, everything turned out just fine.
"They all bonded," Ellerbee tells TV Guide Online. "They made friends, and they all talked about what it was like to be with all these other kids who were like them. And later on, we grown-ups sat and thought that maybe this idea of 'mainstreaming' isn't really the right answer."
