    Who Do You Think You Are? (NBC) 8 p.m.
    Since childhood, Lisa Kudrow (Friends) has known that her grandmother Gertrude had it tough. Gertrude’s mother, Meri, perished in the Holocaust. Lisa’s father recalls hearing about her death from a young Polish sailor, a cousin named Yuri who was last seen in New York in the late 1940s.

    Lisa Kudrow is featured this week and I hear her episode is the season’s best.

    ABC Sports Special: Thin Ice, Part 1 (ABC) 9 p.m.
    You thought the Olympics were exciting? Well, the Winter Games can’t be as intense as watching somebody skate on Thin Ice! We’re not speaking literally, of course. No, we’re talking about a brand new ice skating competition where the world’s greatest professional skaters compete for $220,000. Cool! Unless you fall on the ice. Then it’s cold. Confirmed competitors will include:
    Shizuka Arakawa, Japan, 2006 Olympic Champion
    Elena Berezhnaya, two-time World Champion and Olympic Co-Champion
    Shae-Lynn Bourne, Canada, 2003 World Champion ice dancer
    Marie-France Dubreuil of Canada, five-time Canadian National Ice Dancing Champion and two-time World silver medalist Stephane Lambiel, Switzerland’s World Champion, fresh from the Vancouver Olympics, where he came in 4th
    Patrice Lauzon, five-time Canadian National Champion and two-time World silver medalist as an ice dancer
    David Pelletier, Canada, 2001 World Champion, 2002 Olympic Champion as a pairs skater

    Shae-Lynn Bourne / John Zimmerman
    Marie-France Dubreuil / Michael Weiss
    Jamie Salé / Patrice Lauzon
    Elena Berezhnaya / David Pelletier
    Shizuka Arakawa / Stephane Lambiel

    TONS of Canadians on this and I think former Survivor Elisabeth Hasselbeck is hosting!

    Kitchen Nightmares (FOX) 9 p.m.
    Chef Gordon Ramsay visits Mama Rita’s, a struggling Mexican restaurant in Newbury Park, CA; With a chaotic atmosphere in the kitchen and a lack of leadership from management, this restaurant faces foreclosure if Gordon is unable to help Laura’s cooking staff add some spice back into their business.

    I know I won’t be watching. Will you?
