Now that dating shows are old and dull, the only one that might hold our interest is "Transamerican Love Story" (10 p.m. EST on Logo), a competition for the heart of famous transgender activist (and former Navy man) Calpernia Addams. The men competing for her affections include a man who dates only transgender women, a man who dates women and transgender women, a man who dates men and transgender women, and a transgender man. While the contestants don't necessarily accept one another, Calpernia takes them all in stride with lighthearted enthusiasm and an easy laugh. Here's hoping she finds the man of her dreams!


The 132nd "Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show" begins tonight (8 p.m. EST on USA), as does rubberneckers ball "Flavor of Love 3" (9 p.m. EST on VH1). The chase continues on "Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles" (9 p.m. EST on Fox), and Paul starts to show his uncertainty in handling Laura on HBO's therapy drama "In Treatment" (9:30 p.m. EST on HBO). Night owls can catch punk classic "Sid and Nancy" at 10:30 p.m. EST on IFC.
