Tonight's TV Hot List: Wednesday, Sept. 2, 2009 - Featured

* Leverage (9/8c TNT)


The cool and catchy con-job drama wends its way to its summer-season finale (which airs next week) with some good news: The series returns to conclude its second season this winter, and TNT has renewed the show for a third season. Nate and his mates will be busy, for sure, but they get busier tonight when they try to deliver comeuppance to a corrupt diamond merchant. But this ice-man job is jeopardized by a slipup, resulting in the team's efforts to bust through Boston's most impregnable vault.


* So You Think You Can Dance: The Fifteen Best Performances Ever (8/7c FOX)


Before the sixth season gets under way a week from tonight, relive the best moments of the first five outings of So You Think You Can Dance. Hosted by series judge and executive producer Nigel Lythgoe, the special features fan-favorite routines from celebrated choreographers, such as Mia Michaels and Wade Robson.


* Glee (8:58/7:58c FOX)


Disney might own the High School Musical franchise, but Fox has...the glee club. Snicker at this nerdiness if you will, but creator Ryan Murphy (Nip/Tuck) adds no small amount of edge as he introduces us to William McKinley High's ensemble. In this new director's cut of the pilot (which first aired in May), club director Will Schuester (Matthew Morrison) even gets a jock to join his nerds. Of course, he must use subterfuge to do it. Glee is scheduled to begin its regular run next Wednesday.


* America's Got Talent (9/8c NBC)


There's no hasslin' the Hoff when series arbiter David Hasselhoff moves from the judges' panel to the performance stage tonight. The Hoff is slated to sing "Feeling Good," but feeling really good will be the four winning acts from last night's whirlwind performance fest. This results show reveals the talented foursome, who advance to the finals with their starry eyes still on the $1 million prize. Also on the performance bill: Kermit the Frog and the fabulously hammy Miss Piggy.


* How'd You Get So Rich? (10/9c TVLand)


Remember Jackie Treehorn's fantastic digs in The Big Lebowski? Tonight Joan Rivers takes viewers on a tour of the famous Beverly Hills mansion, which is currently owned by flamboyant NBA superfan James Goldstein. Rivers also meets Bobby Boudreaux, a retired pharmacist who invented a cream for diaper rash with the unforgettable name of Butt Paste; and Gary Clegg, the twentysomething millionaire who's the patron saint of couch potatoes everywhere for his creation of the Slanket.


Top Chef: Las Vegas (10/9c Bravo)


The chefs are flying high after surviving last week's battle-of-the-sexes skirmish (except for Eve Aronoff, who packed her knives due to her "off-balance" ceviche). Tonight, Top Chef meets Top Gun when the gang creates meals for a renowned aircraft demonstration squadron - the U.S. Air Force Thunderbirds. But this food flight could turn turbulent: The cooks have limited time and supplies, and the meal must be bountiful for the masses at Nevada's Nellis Air Force Base. While one cheftestant will soar victoriously, another will be grounded for good.
