8pm

TCM: Rebel Without A Cause Watch this 1955 classic for the teenage angst, the expertly cuffed denim, and every lingering glance between Jimmy and Plato.

ABC: Last Man Standing (Premiere) It's been ten years since Home Improvement went off the air, which means it's time for Tim Allen to shake off a decade's worth of dust and try raising three daughters for a change. (This show can't be good - but aren't you curious anyway? Not really?)

E!: Kim's Fairytale Wedding: A Kardashian Event, Part 1  Any wedding that has to be televised in two separate parts promises plenty of patented Kardashian drama. Technically this is a rerun, but we know you couldn't have all possibly tuned in the first time around (and the tiffs between Kim and sexy/surly NBA player Kris Humphries escalate with each commercial break).

9pm

ABC: Dancing With The Stars 
After Chaz's comeback (and Cher's enthusiastic applause) last week, we're ready for the results show. Will they -please - send Nancy Grace packing? But with guest performances by Kenny Wormald and Julianne Hough, as well as some singing by Susan Boyle, the elimination may be the last thing on our minds.

HBO SignatureThe Strange History of Don't Ask Don't Tell 
Filmed during the last 15 months of DADT, this HBO documentary mixes archival footage with interviews from policy experts, Pentagon personnel and actively serving gay soldiers. See what kind of thinking brought about the discharge of 13,368 service members, and how it finally ended.

Bravo: The Rachel Zoe Project
Curious how an Elle photoshoot is put together? Take one seriously pregnant Rachel Zoe, add two fawning assistants, mix in a healthy serving of self-doubt... and have a drink. You'll need it when the drama unfolds.

10pm

FX: 
Sons of Anarchy 

Get your weekly dose of leather daddies (okay, depending on your preferences maybe you've had a few doses already). In this episode, one gang is in jeopardy when an important package is compromised. If you know anything about SoA, you know this won't be resolved amicably. 

Bravo: Mad Fashion Project Runway alum Chris March and his fashion crew are charged with designing a dress for Dina Manzo, a former Housewife of New Jersey (reality franchises sure are colliding these days). Dina wants to look her best for the biggest drag queen event of the year, but she may not be thrilled with the results.
