GAME SHOW. Oh, Sit! MuchMusic, 8 p.m. Who says television is running out of ideas? Launching tonight, this new series from The CW network is a “high-stakes, high-octane musical chairs competition.” That’s right. Musical chairs on prime-time network television. The show is hosted by actor Jamie Kennedy and Calgary-born Jessi Cruickshank, who both do their darndest to lend credibility to the contest. The format puts participants through five gruelling obstacle-course elimination rounds, with a live rock band providing background music. The last player standing, or sitting, collects a cash prize and bragging rights. It’s just dumb enough to be a hit.
INTERVIEW. Inside the Actors Studio Bravo!, 9 p.m. Any episode of ITAS is only as good as the subject sitting opposite host James Lipton, and tonight’s outing is a dandy. Six principal cast members of Modern Family take the stage to talk about life on TV’s funniest comedy series. The six: Jesse Tyler Ferguson (Mitchell), Eric Stonestreet (Cam), Julie Bowen (Claire), Ty Burrell (Phil), Sofia Vergara (Gloria ) and Ed O’Neill (Jay). Interestingly, the same group, minus O’Neill, threatened a lawsuit against the show’s creators last month toward the cause of getting a pay hike, which they promptly received. Highlights include Bowen explaining how she went from studying Italian history at Brown University to starring on a sitcom and Stonestreet explaining the difficulties of being “gay for pay.”
REALITY. American Hoggers A&E, 10 p.m. You can’t keep a good ol’ hog wrangler down. Back tonight for a second season, this series documenting the adventures of hog-hunting senior Jerry Campbell was a knockout ratings hit for A&E last season. The campaign introduced viewers to cranky old Jerry, as well as his son Robert, who adheres to the old man’s methods of hunting wild feral hogs, and daughter Krystal, who wears tight tops and wants her father to update his hunting technique with GPS devices and other newfangled technology. The new season opens with Jerry deciding to hang up his spurs once and for all, which heats up the sibling rivalry about who’s going to take over the family business.
SCIENCE. MythBusters: Shark Special Discovery, 10 p.m. Get ready to rethink your perception of the shark. In this new special, MythBusters hosts Adam Savage and Jamie Hyneman alternately prove and debunk 25 of the most accepted popular myths about the great white shark. The program was filmed in shark-infested waters off the coast of the Bahamas, and no sharks were harmed during the filming. Among the myths examined: Are sharks attracted to vibrating objects? Do swimming dogs attract sharks? Are sharks repelled by magnets? And if you’re about to be attacked by a shark, is it really possible to scare it off by punching it on the nose? Lesson one: Sharks don’t really have noses.
MOVIE. Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade Showcase, 10 p.m. The third time was the charm for Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones. Directed by Steven Spielberg from a George Lucas script, the third entry in the Indy film franchise benefits from epic scope and imaginative casting. Set in 1938, the story finds Indy teaching art history to young female coeds when he’s approached by a wormy art collector (Julian Glover) with a proposition to find the Holy Grail. Indy takes to the challenge upon learning that his father, Dr. Henry Jones, played by Sean Connery, has disappeared during his own mission to locate the fabled cup. Once reunited in the Middle East, the adventure begins as two generations of the Jones family battle evil forces and ruthless Nazis, including a comely spy (Alison Doody).
