TUESDAY (11/16)

  • 19 Kids and Counting (TLC, 9 p.m.): "Josiah practices driving with Jim Bob before heading to the DMV to take his driver's test." His "Birds and the Bees" introduction came with far less instruction.

  • Supernanny (ABC, 8 p.m.): "Jo is amazed that a Sacramento couple with five children -- ages 9 months to 11 years -- get help from a nanny and a maternal grandmother and still can't control their kids' behavior." Of course, they wouldn't have been in this situation if they could have controlled their bedroom behavior.
  • Man Caves (DIY, 8 p.m.): "A sci-fi fan modernizes his basement with the addition of voice activation and a ceiling that resembles the night sky." Now, if he could just create something that would resemble a woman.

  • The Simpsons (FOX, 8 p.m.): "Mr. Burns has multiple illnesses and is told he only has weeks to live. Bart finds him weak and vulnerable in the wilderness, and invites him into the Simpsons' home." Bart thought the show's 23rd season would give Mr. Burns the will to live.
