Remote Possibilities: When Heidi meets Howard

A few things to watch (or feed your DVR).

Remote Possibilities: When Heidi meets Howard

Judges Howie Mandel, Mel B., Howard Stern and Heidi Klum and host Nick Cannon will be there as "America´s Got Talent" returns Tuesday

Since talent shows have long ceased to be about the talent, the focus, as "America's Got Talent" returns Tuesday (9 p.m., NBC10) is on the judges, with Heidi Klum and Mel. B. joining Howard Stern and Howie Mandel at the judges' table.

So, a German supermodel and a British pop star? That's a lot of accents for a show with "America" in the title, but by this time, we're used to having the whole world judge us -- Simon  and the Supernanny taught us.

Feeling smarter than that? BBC America's Bang Goes the Theory" (not to be confused with the CBS sitcom of the similar name) premieres with three back-to-back episodes beginning at 9, with the first featuring a challenge involving homemade biofuels. (Did I mention cows were involved?)


-- There's a new episode of CBS' new law-and-order "reality" series, "Brooklyn DA" at 10.

-- Kathy Griffin, according to Bravo, will break a record we never heard of -- for the number of televised comedy specials -- when her 16th, "Kathy Griffin: Calm Down Gurrl," premieres there at 10:30 p.m.

About this blog
As the TV critic for the Philadelphia Daily News, I've always believed my job is less about thumbs -- up or down -- and more about the conversation. Because the more choices we have, the fewer people in our lives know what we're talking about when we say, "Did you see that?" And that's when television really starts to get interesting.
