The 43rd NAACP Image Awards, 8 p.m., NBC
I wish that somewhere in all the accolades that everyone has given poor Whitney that someone would look straight into the camera and tell all our children that drugs and alcohol are not the way to solve your problems, to make your fears go away, or to boost your ego. I wish that someone would look straight into the camera and tell our children that having an amazing talent is something to be proud of and to celebrate, and not something to make wear you down. I just wish.
Kitchen Nightmares, 8 p.m., Fox
“Chef Ramsay heads to Charlie's, an Italian bistro in La Verne, Calif., to update the bland and unoriginal menu, lackluster service and old-fashioned decor.” LOL. I’d like a reservation for 7 p.m., please.
Michael Feinstein’s American Songbook, 9 p.m., PBS (check listings)
A reader last week recommended this, and tonight is the finale. Looks we are just in time: “The history of nightclub entertainment.”
