For all you sports fans don’t forget!

Orange Bowl @ 8:15pm

Virginia Tech's offense has excelled of late and the Jayhawks' defense makes big plays, but the key to this matchup may be the Kansas offense against the Hokies' stingy defense. Kansas QB Todd Reesing and his flock of stellar receivers rank second in the nation in scoring, while Tech, led by linebacker Xavier Adibi and corner Brandon Flowers, finished in the same position in scoring defense. This is the first-ever BCS bowl for the Jayhawks.

Celebrity Apprentice @ 9pm

Celebrities trump regular folks as the contestants in Season 7 of Donald Trump's rung-climbing unscripted competition series. Among the 14 business-savvy stars going head-to-head (and likely ego-to-ego): country artist Trace Adkins; rocker Gene Simmons; actors Stephen Baldwin and Marilu Henner; model-actress Carol Alt; boxer Lennox Lewis; and reality figures Omarosa and Piers Morgan. Tonight, the celebs choose team captains. And expect a lot of hot doggin' when the group must sell frankfurters. I love NY!!

Grey's Anatomy @ 9pm

Catch up on Halloween's episode when a day of surprises (both good and bad) hit the doctors of Seattle Grace: Alex receives an unexpected visit from Ava/Rebecca (Elizabeth Reaser); Meredith is convinced that her mother's ashes are haunting her; Cristina is snubbed by a surgeon she admires; and Callie announces George and Izzie's affair to their fellow doctors. Stay tuned for next week's all new episode (and possibly the last we'll see for months:-( until you know what gets their contract) it will serve as the finale and is said to be a major tear jerker!

ER @ 10pm

Gloria Reuben returns to the ER tonight, bringing us a little something that we rarely see at County: the aftermath. Re-creating the role of Jeanie Boulet, Reuben's presence invokes the days of Drs. Greene, Ross and, of course, Benton, with whom she shared some passionate screen time. Then, her character's HIV-positive status ended that relationship and threatened her career as a physician's assistant. Now, a feared eventuality brings Jeanie and her family back to the place where we knew her best, and where she currently hopes not to be just another face in the crowd.

Run's House @ 10pm

It seems like everyone in the Simmons house has issues in this episode. JoJo starts an internship at Uncle Russell's Phat Farm, but one of the designers there rides him hard. Rev can't keep up with the kids on their new gaming system, so he buys an old arcade game to show Diggy and Russy that he has old-school skill z. This backfires when Diggy and Russy get addicted to the game and their schoolwork suffers. Meanwhile, Justine is feeling oppressed by Rev's point-counting diet and chucks it for a new diet that suits her.
