Free at last

Katie Holmes talks about her return to Broadway and, maybe -- just maybe -- her escape from Camp Tom Cruise on "Live With Kelly & Michael" (9 a.m., KSTP, Ch. 5). By the way, is it just me, or has Michael Strahan made an ultra-smooth transition into morning TV?

Stars and students

Tyra Banks, Justin Bieber, Josh Duhamel and Emma Stone hand out "The TeenNick 2012 Halo Awards" (7 p.m., Nick), which are presented to teenagers who have accomplished great things. Three recipients are thrilled to be feted by such big stars. Fourth recipient asks: "What's a Duhamel?"

The party never ends

Before Jane Lynch found "Glee" and Adam Scott parked himself at "Parks & Recreation," they co-starred in one of the more underappreciated sitcoms in some time. See for yourself by watching two clever episodes from 2010 of "Party Down" (8 p.m., Starz Comedy), which follows the misguided adventures of caterers in Los Angeles.
