The TV Junkie's picks for the night:

8:00-9:00pm Big Brother 8 CBS - LAist's editor-in-chief's fave (only on Sundays perhaps), but here it is, a new episode - is the Tommy Lee-wannabe gonna dis the hottie some more?

9:00-10:00pm American Chopper TLC -David Letterman's fave. The boys were just on his show and they were pretty darn entertaining. Lemme guess, the younger brother does something stupid.

10:00-11:00pm Mad Men AMC - A collection of brilliantly flawed characters (even the chunky and affable copywriter is a leech). I love the collection of relatively unknown actors, great writing, good design, and the lack of an annoying soundtrack make this the only option for this time slot. Is the perfect wife gonna descend deeper into depression? Who else is going to get into the new girl's pants? What's going to happen with the controversial Jewish department store account?

11:00-11:30pm the Daily Show with Jon Stewart Comedy Central - The only place to get your news.

11:35-12:35am Late Show With David Letterman CBS - Comic (and candidate?) Al Franken; Jackie Chan; Michael Bubl performs.
