Now that the network masterminds have determined that having the word "model" in a show's title makes it more popular, Bravo has decided to apply its "Project Runway"/"Top Chef" formula to the world of modeling. On "Make Me a Supermodel: Casting Special" (11 p.m. EST on Bravo), what you'll find are good-looking people who are pretty sure that they're hot enough to get paid just for looking damn good. If you've met anyone who fits this description, you know that it may be the single most irritating demographic around. But needless to say, we're going to be sitting on our fat, ugly asses in front of the TV set with a big bowl of ice cream and watching this show.
PBS's four-part "Pioneers of Television" documentary series begins with a look at the early sitcoms, from "I Love Lucy" to "The Dick Van Dyke Show" (8 p.m. EST on PBS, check listings) followed by the biography "Andrew Jackson: Good, Evil, and The Presidency" (9 p.m. EST on PBS, check listings). "Wife Swap" premieres at 8 p.m. EST on ABC, followed by the premiere of "Supernanny" at 9 p.m. EST on ABC. "Project Runway," airs at 10 p.m. EST on Bravo.
