America's Next Top Model
The contestants on this show are among the most strikingly beautiful people in the world, which only serves to make some of them more insecure about their appearance. That's certainly the case in a new episode called, somewhat provocatively, "The Guy Who Gets a Hickey," wherein the men and women must appear in a photo shoot for which there will be no retouching of the finished photos. Meanwhile, a huge blow-up happens as romance blossoms among some of the models.
In the newest Mystery Box challenge, the top five cooks must prepare a dish with pear, blue cheese, tomato, portobello mushroom and ... chocolate?

Though Matthew Broderick had the title part in "Ferris Bueller's Day Off," Charlie Sheen also was in it, and "Barry Goldberg's Day Off" trades on that as Sheen guest stars as "Dude in Police Station."

Barry (Troy Gentile) follows the fictional Ferris' lead by blowing off responsibilities for a day, and it doesn't work out too well for him. AJ Michalka also guest stars.

A Wicked Offer
Mike and Sylvia, an engaged couple from Palatine, Ill., can accelerate their timeline for getting married and setting up housekeeping, as long as they are willing to subject some of their friends and family members to some wicked pranks.

O'Connor presents Mike and Sylvia with a couple of scandalous tasks to perform -- and their reward depends on how far they're willing to take things with their loved ones.
And you thought "Jurassic Park" was fiction: Made in association with National Geographic, "Bigger Than T. Rex" surveys the attempt to reconstruct a Spinosaurus -- its skeleton, at least -- from fossil bones found fairly recently in Morocco. Others that were located many years earlier were destroyed in the tumult of World War II. Terrifying jaws and claws are traits of the carnivore being reassembled by a team that includes paleontologists.
