Tonight's TV Battle

Well, the folks over at Dancing With the Stars (ABC, 8) have their final competition round tonight, which I assume means that someone will be forced to "walk the plank" by having to play Dance Dance Revolution until their legs fall off. Miami Dolphins defensive end Jason Taylor is still in the competition, and you just know that somewhere Bill Parcells is grumbling. In an interview recently with ESPN, Taylor said that he hadn't spoken with Parcells about doing the show and that, in essence, the most important thing to him was being known for his acting in ten years. Sounds exactly like a Parcells guy to me!

Following Dancing is yet another incarnation of The Bachelorette (ABC, 9). I'm assuming that the people that watch these shows are the types that touch hot stoves time and time again or repeatedly stick forks into light sockets. If you're craving musclebound meatheads wailing on ordinary citizens, you'll have to be content with American Gladiators (NBC, 8).

In the world of sports, you've got...

MLB: Cubs at Astros, ESPN, 7
NHL Stanley Cup Playoffs: Detroit at Dallas, Versus, 8
Arena Football: Los Angeles at Chicago, Deuce, 8
NBA Playoffs: San Antonio at New Orleans, Game 7 (FINALLY), TNT, 8:30

(all times eastern)
