CHECK OUT WHAT TO WATCH AFTER THE JUMP

Time: 10 – 11PM
Reasons to watch: Discontented with staying home and playing with his cars, Jay Leno recrappifies network television. For one night, however, Leno is set to hit ratings gold with an appearance by dreamkiller Kanye West. Watch Kayne apologize in CAPS.
INSIDE THE ACTOR’S STUDIO: FAMILY GUY
Time: 8 – 9PM
Reasons to watch: James Lipton sits down with the creative team behind Family Guy. Tune in for the sheer creepiness of hearing a cartoon’s voice come out of a person’s mouth and the hang on to the hope that Lipton will utter the word "giggety."
THE 2009 MTV VIDEO MUSIC AWARDS
Time: 8 – 10PM
Reasons to watch:
Relive the magic of this esteemed award show all over again and find out why Lady Gaga
looks like a cross between Christina Aquliera and Jackie O. in the picture above.
THE ASTRONAUT FARMER
Time: 8 – 10:30PM
Reasons to watch: Billy Bob Thornton
stars as a farmer who builds his own rocket and launches himself into space. Sounds far fetched to me. I find it hard to believe that some farmer would succeed where Lance Bass failed.
EDDIE GRIFFIN: GOING FOR BROKE
Time: 10 – 10:30PM
Reasons to watch:
Why, it seems like just yesterday Eddie Griffin was sharing the screen with the greats of cinema — Denise Richards, Chris Kattan, Method Man, DJ Qualls, Malcolm Jamal-Warner, Rob Schneider
. Now he’s claiming bankruptcy on a staged reality show. How far the mighty pretend to fall.
