TV Tonight

Has there ever been a contemporary song played on more dramatic and reality shows than James Blunt's "You're Beautiful"? Tonight, Blunt appears as himself on the so-far disappointing Love Monkey (CBS at 10:00 P.M.).

On PBS, in most markets, there are two hours of hard-hitting documentaries: Frontline's "Sex Slave" covers human trafficking in Eastern Europe, and Independent Lens features "Negroes with Guns: Bob Wiliams and Black Power," a documentary about a little-known activist who advocated violence.

And Laguna Beach's uber-princess, Kristin Cavallari co-hosts Get This Party Started on UPN. Queen for a Day meets Extreme Makeover: Home Edition as party planners throw a party for "deserving" recipients. I doubt this will win a Peabody Award, but nothing could keep me from watching this at least once.
