What To Do Tonight: Scalp for laughs

If you would rather laugh at your TV tonight, The CW is airing the first half of a two-part look back on nine seasons of America's Next Top Model at 8 p.m. New episodes of Reno 911! (10:30 p.m., Comedy Central) and Project Runway (10 p.m., Bravo) are on the air too. And of course American Idol (8 p.m., FOX) is on.

In more sober fare, African American Lives 2 (9 p.m., PBS) traces the ancestry of black celebrities whose family trees are fuzzy due to slavery. The show focuses on the likes of Chris Rock and Morgan Freeman, surprising them with tales of their long-lost relatives. Sounds like the most edifying thing on TV tonight.
