You’ll be using your napkin for a hankie on tonight’s Next Food Network Star. After the remaining contestants compete to create their own unique, signature burger, they throw a homecoming party for US soldiers returning from Iraq. Don't worry, you can always blame it on the onions!

The PBS series, Soundstage brings you an hour-long concert of country-pop favs Sugarland. In addition to their hits, expect the duo to pull out a few R.E.M. covers to boot! Nice!

So You Think You Can Dance

And on Southern Belles: Louisville, things get awkward when the topic of kids comes up between Kellie and Jeff. Shea loses her damn mind when she goes koo koo  shopping for her wedding, and Hadley bags a bad boy when she has an “official” date with Russ. Run Hadley! They  only bring you trouble!

Notable mentions… Kelly Clarkson performs “I Do Not Hook Up” on So You Think You Can Dance, and Sandra Bullock and PJ Harvey with John Parrish are on Letterman tonight.
