Tonight's TV Hot List for Tuesday, March 31, 2009


* Dancing with the Stars (9 pm/ET ABC)


It's double trouble as two contestants get booted in tonight's double elimination, based on their performances with last night's Argentine tango or Lindy Hop. Could Holly Madison's number be up? Or has Steve-O's back injury gotten the best of him? Then there's Steve Wozniak, who got a 10 from the judges last week - not a perfect 10, but a combined total of 10. As for music guests, Boyz II Men stop by to perform a medley of Motown tunes, and Kevin Rudolf sings "Let It Rock."


* Cupid (10:02 pm/ET ABC)


TV auteur Rob Thomas (Veronica Mars) mines his past with this remake of his short-lived 1998 series of the same name. Then it was Jeremy Piven in the lead. Now it's Bobby Cannavale (Third Watch), who stars as a possibly mixed-up man who believes that he's Cupid, the Roman god of love. Golden Globe nominee Sarah Paulson (Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip) costars as the psychiatrist he's assigned to after his three-month stint in a mental institution.


* American Idol (8 pm/ET Fox)


The singers revved up and motored through Motown hits last week, but it was Michael Sarver who finally stalled out. It was a slippery spill for the charming oil-rig laborer when his version of "Ain't Too Proud to Beg" by the Temptations failed to tempt America or the judges. Now the final nine go on without the big humble Texan. With that, Kris Allen, Anoop Desai, Matt Giraud (how on earth was he in the bottom three last week?), Danny Gokey, Allison Iraheta, Megan Joy, Adam Lambert, Scott MacIntyre and Lil Rounds return in performance showcases tonight.


* Frontline (9 pm/ET PBS (check local listings)


"Sick Around America" highlights how the ongoing recession is exasperating the health-care crisis, which finds too many either uninsured or underinsured. Georgetown professor Karen Pollitz equates the latter to having a car with an airbag made from tissue paper. "If I ever get in a crash," she says, "it's not going to protect me." The report goes deep into the crisis, detailing the difficulties faced by small businesses, their employees and people seeking coverage on their own, as well as relating several insurance-nightmare stories and sizing up Massachusetts' health-care reform.


* Osbournes: Reloaded (9:25 pm/ET Fox)


The title is apt for this new guerrilla comedy-variety show, which finds Ozzy, Sharon, Jack and Kelly performing comedy as well as music, hosing the studio audience down with foam, working at a fast-food drive-through, asking a blindfolded audience member to make out with a stranger and moving in with other families named Osbourne, among other things. There's only one rule: no rules!
