Dancing with the Stars

Last night's dances were all done to unplugged music, and tonight Tom will pull the plug on someone's dancing career when he announces the elimination results. The question, as always, is who will it be? Will Bristol soon be driving home to Alaska, will "The Situation" be returning to the Jersey shore, or might Audrina be heading back to the Hollywood Hills? Anything is possible after the always-unpredictable viewer votes are factored in. — Jennifer Sankowski

Nick Swardson's Pretend Time
10/9c Comedy Central
One of Nick Swardson's better-known roles was a recurring part as roller-skating Terry Bernardino on RENO 911!,  but now the comedian gets a chance to showcase what must be a treasure trove of equally absurd, shameless characters on his very own sketch-comedy show. Tonight's premiere, which includes an appearance by Ryan Phillippe, features Swardson as a man who is driven mad when his mother leaves her fortune to a cat; and a New Jersey police officer who happens to be Lady Gaga's brother. — Joe Friedrich

The Good Wife

The brilliant Alan Cumming is now a regular cast member, and his political consultant character Eli Gold seems to constantly be trying to avert disaster as he manages Peter's re-election campaign. And tonight isn't any different. Alicia's gay brother (Dallas Roberts) arrives in town and accuses Peter of homophobia, and his comments go viral on the Internet. As for the hour's courtroom drama, it concerns a malicious multimillion-dollar prosecution suit that leads to a heated confrontation between Alicia and Peter's nemesis, Glenn Childs. — Tim Holland

Detroit 1-8-7

Tonight, Detroit native Xzibit guest stars as a record producer involved in Longford and Mahajan's investigation into the murder of an up-and-coming hip-hop star. Fitch, Washington, Stone and Sanchez, meanwhile, investigate the slaying of a car-wash owner. — Jeff Gemmill

Parking Wars
10/9c A&E
Getting parking tickets and the car boot are not fun...though they might be if you are watching someone else being penalized. There, it's been said. Yes, it's so wrong, but such a guilty pleasure. So, now that that's out of the way, it's time to settle in and enjoy a fourth season of the reality series. In the season opener, a woman goes into a rage when her husband doesn't have any luck getting his car from the impound lot. Then, a Detroit ticket-writer faces a shouting woman, and workers on a booting run face a woman who won't stop crying. — Bill Ecklund
