The X Factor, 8 p.m., Fox
I wonder if the Stereo Hogz would’ve done better if Paula had let them sing boy songs? And I am not sure why poor Nicole Scherzinger is being hammered and lambasted by all the critics. It is not her fault that she sits there and literally shimmers.
Nature, 8 p.m., PBS (checking listings)
Tonight, “Writer Joe Hutto raises wild turkeys from chicks in Florida.” As Benjamin Franklin so memorably said in the world’s best musical, 1776: “A truly noble bird. Native American, a source of sustenance to our original settlers, and an incredibly brave fellow who wouldn't flinch from attacking a whole regiment of Englishmen single-handedly!”
America’s Next Top Model, 9 p.m., CW
