Survivor: Philippines, 8 p.m., CBS
It’s a good thing Probst has this to fall back on, as his daytime talk show debuted to pretty bad numbers (not as bad as Ricki Lake, but honestly, that isn’t saying much). According to all the previews the focus has been on the fact that the woman who played Blair on Facts Of Life is on this, but to me, the best news is that it rains pretty much all the time. I love sopping wet Survivors.
Big Brother, 9:30 p.m., CBS
The end. Thank goodness.
The X Factor, 8 p.m., Fox
Ok, after one week, here are my thoughts: I find the utter empty-headedness of Britney Spears to be upsetting, disheartening and sad. I find Demi Lovato’s eyebrows to be terrifying. Her hair is even scarier. Simon needs to hit the gym and L.A. is turning into my favorite.
