Although it's hard for me to imagine not wanting to watch tonight's BCS National Championship Game (8 p.m., FOX), in which the No. 1 Ohio State Buckeyes (11-1) face the No. 2 Lousiana State Tigers (11-2), there are some other options tonight.

Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations (10 p.m., Travel) premieres a new season with a trip to Singapore, while Medium (9 p.m., NBC) begins its new season by welcoming Anjelica Huston to the cast. And if you swing that way, ABC has a Dancing With the Stars spinoff at 8 p.m. called Dance Wars: Bruno vs. Carrie Ann.

No big live music to speak of tonight, but various bars have standby Monday events, including Skully's Mixtape Mondays, High Five's Punk Rock Karaoke and Cafe Bourbon Street's DJ Captain Lonesome.

Anyway, in the words of John Madden... football!
