“24” (FOX; ends at 9 PM)-Although extremists attempted to derail the signing of the historic arms treaty between the United States and Russia, the signing proceeded and as a result, America has inherited some of Russia’s enemies. The terrorist mastermind, billionaire Vladimir Bierko, intimidates the administration while autocratic CTU leader Lynn McGill comes under fire from President Logan.

“Half & Half” (UPN; ends at 9 PM)
“There & Back” (MTV; ends at 9 PM)-At a Hurricane Katrina benefit, Ashley gets into a fight.
“The Bachelor 8: Paris” (ABC; ends at 10 PM)-The “Women Tell All” special. A reluctant Travis faces the fury of the rejected women who spent this season of “The Bachelor” catfighting with one another in an effort to capture his heart. Susan, Sarah B. from Canada, Tara, Jehan, Kristen, and Shiloh are just a few of the memorable Bachelorettes who will confront each other one last time and dish the dirt on national television, as the women tell their side of the story. Emotions run to a fever pitch between these feisty women with exciting, never-before-seen moments and some outrageous out-takes. Susan gets put on the hot seat by all the other women, who question her intentions and whether her professed love for Travis is true...only to have Travis surprisingly defend her. The women dish the dirt about the season's hot topics, including: Dr. Allie G., the woman in her “reproductive phase” who exclaimed that her “eggs were rotting” and who confronted Travis in an explosive post-rose ceremony meltdown; Kristen's “lemon teeth” ploy to capture the Bachelor's affections while cruising down the Seine during a romantic dinner; and, of course, their overwhelming feelings about Moana...have their opinions changed since watching the show? Finally, Moana and Sarah S. from Nashville, who are still competing for Travis' heart, have messages for the rejected women. Everyone knows that Trista and Ryan are still together (and now they are trying for a baby)...but I didn't know that this show has two other success stories. Charlie O'Connell and Byron the fisherman and their respective women are still with their guys. Maybe love can happen after all!
