(Note: don’t forget to check out Film Drunk’s live thread with Broken Lizard’s Jay Chandrasekhar and Kevin Heffernan NOW. So many questions about Shenanigans, so little time.)

Mars Landing 2012: The New Search for Life (Science, 10 p.m.) — Before going to sleep tonight, take a moment to say out loud, “HOLY SH*T, HUMANS LANDED A ROBOT ON MARS.” When you’re telling your grandkids about this in 40 years, though you might wanna leave out the “I learned about it on Twitter” part.

XXX Summer Olympics (NBC, 8 p.m.) — Women’s pole vault final airs tonight. FINALLY.

WWE Monday Night RAW (USA, 8 p.m.) — “Brock Lesnar returns to haunt Triple H as both prepare for the ‘Perfect Storm’ at SummerSlam.” Like a g-g-g-g-ghost? Head to With Leather for a live chat.

2012 Pro Football Hall of Fame Induction (ESPN Classic, 10 p.m.) — Because you can never have too much Cortez Kennedy hugging his own face.

Teen Wolf (MTV, 10 p.m.) — Tonight’s episode is about a lacrosse championship. Expect a lot of characters named Caldwell, Landon, and Dayton.

LATE NIGHT GUESTS: Stephen King and Dave Barry on Ferguson; Lisa Kudrow and Dominic Monaghan on Conan; Tim Gunn on Stewart; and Pete Seeger on Colbert.
