TV Tonight: Nikita, Big Bang Theory, Secret Diary, Gigolos


Catch last night’s Justified on FX? If not, slap yourself repeatedly: Best drama on TV right now, period. Also, a better profile of hillbilly culture than anything you'll get on TLC. ---

What’s new tonight:
Nikita (The CW) Finally—Nikita (and pretty much the entire CW lineup) took March off, but now it’s back with a bang: Michael tells old flame/current frenemy Nikita that he knows her protégé Alex is the mole within Division (what took him so long—aren’t these people, like, professional spies, themselves?) and threatens to blab, unless Nikita can track down the goon who killed his family in the next 24 hours. Minus the 30-45 minutes they’ll probably make for Sexy Time, of course. Ridiculous? Compared to the rest of The CW’s shows, Nikita is practically Frontline—just chill.

The Big Bang Theory (CBS) Howard proposes to Bernadette, and there are rumors of a pregnancy within the gang (which now includes too many damn women, just sayin’). These events are not related.

Secret Diary of a Call Girl (Showtime) Season Premiere: Read all about it in True TV (Item 1).

Gigolos (Showtime) Series Debut: Following Secret Diary, it’s the premiere of Gigolos, a reality show about a group of pretty man ‘hos living and loving in Las Vegas. Equal time for he-hookers is great and all, but this series sadly doesn’t include the original TV call guy: Fred Garvin, Male Prostitute (Wiki it, kids).

Also new tonight:
Rules of Engagement, CSI, The Mentalist (CBS); Perfect Couples, Outsourced (NBC); American Idol, Bones (Fox); The Vampire Diaries (The CW); The Real Housewives of New York (Bravo); Eagleheart (Adult Swim); Archer (FX); Conan (TBS)

Preview: Nik and Mike make even walkie-talkies look sexy on tonight’s Nikita:
