Fun with Fez

The long-awaited "That '70s Show" reunion comes one step closer to reality when Wilmer Valderrama guest-stars on Laura Prepon's "Are You There, Chelsea?" (7:30 p.m., KARE, Ch. 11). Valderrama fans (all six of you), take note: He also has a supporting role in the new series "Awake," which premieres Thursday.

The British are coming

"America's Next Top Model" (8 p.m., WUCW, Ch. 23) starts the Revolutionary War all over again with a new cycle pitting Yanks against former contestants from "Britain's Next Top Model." To get things off to a good start, guest judge Kelly Osbourne will try to remember which country she actually hails from.

Bringing the funny

One of the things the Republican candidates for president seem to have in common is an inability to deliver a good joke. If they are as funny in their private lives as their aides insist, you sure wouldn't know it. They may want to tune in for "The Tonight Show With Jay Leno" (10:35 p.m., KARE, Ch. 11) and see how the witty John McCain delivers a punch line. Of course, McCain lost in 2008, so maybe they won't want to pay too much attention.
