TV Tonight

Lots of interesting stuff on tonight.

Of course, American Idol debuts tonight, with a 2-hour audition special. Independent Lens, on PBS, chronicles the travails of three girls dealing with the juvenile justice system in San Francisco. And Paula Poundstone makes a rare appearance on Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.

I'm writing tonight, and my guess is that the only show I'll get to catch is Love Monkey, on CBS at 10:00 P.M. EST, the new show starring Ed's Tom Cavanagh. The early reviews have not been good, but I'm always willing to give Cavanagh the benefit of the doubt.
