On Survivor (8 p.m., CBS), the Richard-Susan-Rudy alliance sets its sights on its next victim. Will it be Kelly or Sean? Or will something completely weird happen? Anyway, it's the next-to-last episode. Biography (8 p.m., A&E) has a new profile of Janis Joplin. The Big Brother (9 p.m., CBS) housemates learn the identity of the latest casualty. Did America vote for Karen, Josh or Cassandra? Or was there an overwhelming write-in vote for Julie Chen? On a rerun of The West Wing (9 p.m., NBC), Josh tells a tour group about a typical day at the White House (right -- no day is typical), while Sam and Toby have to bail Bartlet's Supreme Court nominee out of jail.


The new cable movie At Any Cost (9 p.m., VH1) stars Glenn Quinn (Doyle from "Angel") as a ruthless manager who makes life miserable for an up-and-coming band.
