Nothing To Watch on TV?

You must be kidding! Let's forget about scripted shows. Let's forget about the debut of American Idol on Fox. Or the pleasures (guilty or not) of reality shows such as The Real Housewives of Orange County, the reality show about a sympathetic individual (Life of Ryan, on MTV at 10:00 p.m.), with a rerun of the premiere episode at 9:30 p.m., and the trainwreck of the Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency, or The Biggest Loser Couples.

How about checking out Andrew Jenks, Room 385 on Cinemax at 7:00 p.m., about a college student who lives in an assisted-living facility, or A Price Above Rubies (9:00 p.m. on IFC), a documentary about a rebellious Orthodox Jew who challenges her culture.

And if you aren't in the mood for reality? There's always the Democratic Presidential Debate on MSNBC.
