Not a huge country fan? Check out rapper Xzibit when he blows it up on Live from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as part of MTVis Spankini New Music Week (MTV, 7 p.m.).

In this weekis episode of The Bachelor (ABC, 8 p.m.), Aaron has to spend quality time with the showis three remaining women. But after this show, one of the ladies wonit look so lucky; Aaron gives one of them "the boot" after taking each one on a separate date.


The castaways are getting cranky about one anotheris hygiene habits. Some are even thinking about forming possible alliances now that the tribe has merged as one. Come on, we all know thereis no such thing as an alliance, but see for yourself on Survivor: Thailand (CBS, 7 p.m.).

On the latest Friends, letis just say that Ross isnit thrilled with Rachelis choice for baby Emmais new nanny. Freddie Prinze Jr. guest-stars as the ultra-sensitive and hilarious nanny (NBC, 7 p.m.).

Donit miss Scrubs (NBC, 7:30 p.m.), when Dr. Cox harps about bad drug companies while simultaneously falling for vixen Heather Locklear, who guest-stars as a pharmaceutical representative.


Catch two new back-to-back episodes of The Drew Carey Show (ABC, 8 p.m.). On the first episode, Drew thinks his chances of getting his new crush are ruined when he is duped into taking Steveis alcohol-friendly mistress. Drew rounds out the night when he hires a matchmaker to help him find a wife. Through all this, The Goo Goo Dolls perform.


Itill be all good on this weekis Saturday Night Live when My Big Fat Greek Weddingis Nia Vardalos hosts and the first lady of the Ruff Ryders, Eve, performs (NBC, 10:30 p.m.).


The Simpsons is back and as clever as ever. Homer and friends attend a rock ‘ni roll fantasy camp, at which he and the family get a crash course from instructors Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Tom Petty, Elvis Costello and Lenny Kravitz.

Malcolm just doesnit understand high school, but then again, who does? Donit miss the funniest family on television with Malcolm in the Middle (FOX, 8 p.m.).

Donit forget about the other family. Check out The Sopranos (HBO, 8 p.m.) as Uncle Junior responds loud and clear to the bad press his trial has been getting, and Ralphie is left with a bad taste in his mouth after he pulls a prank on Paulie.


On the family comedy Everybody Loves Raymond (CBS, 8 p.m.), Ray and Debra find their new friendship with another couple threatened when their 8-year-old-son works Rayis last nerve.

On the crime drama CSI: Miami (CBS, 9 p.m.), David Carusois character and his partners search for a suspect who slaughtered a Miami family and left behind a blood-drenched toddler. The detectives find that the mother was severely depressed and figure her to be the killer.

Doesnit this case sound like something that happened in Houston a while ago? Nah, a television show wouldnit touch an issue that realistic.

The daring drama is beginning to rival NBCis long-running detective drama Law and Order.

Monday Night Football (ABC, 8 p.m.) serves up one of the leagueis most bruising rivalries when the Oakland Raiders clash with a division rival the Denver Broncos.

While quarterback Brian Griese and the Broncos have the home-field advantage, the Raidersi Rich Gannon threw five touchdown passes to five different receivers in the teamsi last two meetings. Somethingis gonna give.
