There's sure to be love in the air and sweat on the foreheads tonight on "Top Chef" (10 p.m. EDT on Bravo) when the cheftestants are asked to cater a wedding with 200 guests. Of course imaginative cheftestant Richard will dream up a magnificent appetizer and talented cheftestant Dale will create an inventive entree, but what will twin lunatics Spike and Andrew do? If there's a God, those two will be in charge of carving the 6-foot-tall ice swan using only a box of matches and a set of cheap steak knives.



"Gladiator" airs at 8 p.m. EDT on HBO, while the new series "Secrets of the Dead" premieres (8 p.m. on PBS, check listings) with a story about East Germany's history of doping female athletes, followed by an "American Masters" (9 p.m. on PBS, check listings) profile of Marvin Gaye. Then on "Audition: Barbara Walters' Journey" (10 p.m. on ABC), the first lady of teary interviews gives her own (teary?) interview about writing her memoirs.
