Real World Secrets Revealed
11 am/ET MTV
Another season of the long-running reality series kicks off on Wednesday, but first MTV is offering a behind-the-scenes peek at the first 20 seasons of the Real World. (Has it really been that long?) The 90-minute program features never-before-seen clips and a look back at the good ol' days, when the show's major focus wasn't drunken fights and steamy hot-tub hookups. Although they're fun too. — Karen Andzejewicz

Brothers & Sisters
10:01 pm/ET ABC
The wide range of emotions stirred up almost a month ago over Elizabeth's paternity may have been a painful, albeit necessary, by-product of saving her life. But while Tommy and Kevin did their best to make nice in the hospital, it looks like the revelation that the latter is the father is going to haunt these feuding Walker brothers in different ways for a long time...or at least tonight! — Joe Friedrich

Desperate Housewives
9 pm/ET ABC
It has been a month since the last new episode...so where were we? For starters, Andrew's engaged, and tonight we'll meet his intended's mom (Joanna Cassidy). Expect her relationship with Bree to be, er, competitive. We also know that Porter's on the run and that Preston's impersonating him. Expect stern resolve from Lynette. And we know why Dave returned to Fairview (Mike's accident killed his family) and that he's out for revenge. This will play out in coming weeks, but Edie's already suspecting that something's up. — Paul Droesch

Seven '80s and '90s heartthrobs — Christopher Atkins, David Chokachi, Billy Hufsey, Jeremy Jackson, Eric Nies, Jamie Walters and Adrian Zmed — move in together and take a crack at jump-starting their stalled careers.
