Gay TV on a Monday Night: 'Million Dollar Listing'

It's getting cold, so the TV lineup should be warming up. Halloween and Thanksgiving specials are right around the corner. To get you over the Monday blues, take your pick of tried and tested sitcom hilarity from Neil Patrick Harris, teen angst on a nighttime soap, or multitalented music master Justin Timberlake on the late-night couch. There are lots of favorites and fun lined up to entertain Monday night's viewers. Plus a familiar Bravo series returns, and no, it ain't any of the Housewives.

Grab some remote and kick off the week right with CBS's prime-time comedy anchor How I Met Your Mother at 8 o'clock. While the mysterious maybe-mom guest star Rachel Bilson isn't introduced yet, you can't go wrong with a Barney episode. Lily (Alyson Hannigan) and Marshall (Jason Segel) are coming on too strong in a bid to co-couple up on a double date in tonight's episode.

If you can't muster the enthusiasm for HIMYM’s follow-up, Accidentally on Purpose, next, CW's still got One Tree Hill. It's actually an all right lead-in to the main attraction: a new episode of Gossip Girl at 9. Tonight on the GG, it's wedding bells for Rufus (Matthew Settle) and Lily (Kelly Rutherford) as they push up their nuptials, but someone's trying to ruin the blessed event. Plus spiffy dresser Chuck (Ed Westwick) uncovers Carter's deep secret. Will he tell Serena (Blake Lively)?

At 10, check out the season finale of The Rachel Zoe Project on Bravo. A chaotic season has all been leading up to this. After doctors encourage Zoe to turn over control of most business matters to her husband, Roger, the stressed-to-sickness Zoe steps back. But how will the change in command affect her assistants, Taylor and Brad? As Taylor teeters on the precipice of leaving the house of Zoe, changes produce consequences in the season's dramatic climax.

Next, after the harrowing conclusion of another season of  Project Zoe, it's an all-new season premiere of Million Dollar Listing on Bravo at 11. You may remember the very bitchy, bickering but successful young real estate agents from the first two seasons of the show. Chad (the one with the hair), Josh (Grandma's boy), and Madison (bisexual and seemingly sane) are all back to hype more hot real estate and brag about their commissions. The previews also give a peek at Madison's burgeoning LGBT activism. Could be worth a watch!

On Monday's late-night talk shows, keep an eye out for the hottest Renaissance man since Lord knows when, Justin Timberlake, when the Grammy and Emmy award-winner appears on the new Jay Leno Show. Later on The Tonight Show, Conan O'Brien welcomes another multitalented star, Jamie Foxx, and East Coast indie rockers Grizzly Bear perform.
