Sen. Barack Obama and Sen. Hillary Clinton haven't debated each other since Feb. 26, so it'll be interesting to see if they choose to play nice or go for the jugular on tonight's Democratic Presidential Debate in Philadelphia (8 p.m. EDT on ABC). Given the mood lately, we're guessing neither presidential hopeful will emerge from this one without mud on his/her hands. Here's hoping they don't rip each other to pieces so badly that all the Democratic Party's horses and all's men can't put Humpty or Dumpty back together again in time for the general election.


On tonight's episode of "America's Next Top Model," the girls learn to give interviews and in so doing, give us an amusing tour of all that empty space in their pretty heads (8 p.m. EDT on the CW). "The Truth About Cancer" chronicles the struggles of a widow who lost her husband to cancer (9 p.m. on PBS, check listings). "Top Chef" features a tailgating challenge (10 p.m. on Bravo) and the 20th season of "The Real World" premieres (10 p.m. on MTV).
