Do you think you and your husband will still be married five years from now? Would you donate a kidney to save your father's life? These are two of the questions lobbed at contestants on Fox's willfully shocking game show "The Moment of Truth" (premieres at 9 p.m. EST). Contestants are hooked up to a lie-detector test and grilled while their spouses, friends and family look on in horror, all for a chance to win half a million dollars. How much are people willing to demean themselves for the almighty dollar? That's the kind of question we don't really want to know the answer to... but we do want to know if that guy's gonna give his dad a kidney or not.



The conclusion of "Pioneers of Television" focuses on the history of game shows (8 p.m. EST on PBS, check listings), followed by the conclusion of the three-part documentary "The Jewish Americans" (9 p.m. EST on PBS, check listings). Then, "Project Runway" contestants dabble in denim (10 p.m. EST on Bravo), and regular guys go head-to-head with pro athletes on the third season return of "Pros vs. Joes" (premieres at 11 p.m. EST on Spike).
