    Welcome to Watch List, where we identify five things on TV to watch while you stay at home and knit yourself a printer cover. LET’S GO!

    THE LYING GAME/DEADLY SIBLING RIVALRY – 9:00PM (ABC Family and Lifetime) Like stories about twin siblings doing creepy twin sibling things? Well, tonight is your lucky night, for you have TWO twin-related mysteries at your disposal. The first is ABC Family's new show about a set of separated twins - one wealthy and one from a foster home. The wealthy one lets the foster kid take her place for a while as she searches for their biological parents, and then shenanigans ensue. Meanwhile, over at Lifetime, you get Charisma Carpenter (call me!) as a disturbed woman who takes over the life of her twin sister after she falls into a coma. And that's only the tip of the "Buffy"/twin hijinks going on, considering you have Saran Michelle Gellar in "Ringer" coming this fall. So yeah, lots of twin-related stuff out there. If you feel left out because you have no twin sibling, well then I guess your mom didn't love you enough to take Clomid. ANTICIPATION: TWINTASTIC!

    GLORIA: IN HER OWN WORDS – 9:00PM (HBO) Feminist icon Gloria Steinem gets own HBO documentary tonight, where she gets to talk at length about her life and her impact on women's rights. You know how chatty those broads can get. ANTICIPATION: JUST KIDDING I SUPPORT FEMININE CAUSES!

    MOST ELIGIBLE DALLAS – 10:00PM (Bravo - an NBC/Universal Network) Here's a new show about single folk livin' in Dallas and throwin' all sorts of crazy Texas parties and doin' all kinds of Texas-style hookin' up. I'm also told the Texan "Jersey Shore" knockoffs will also "network," and that's exciting. Nothing like seeing someone send a LinkedIn invite to someone else. ANTICIPATION: YEEEEEHAW!

    MILLIONAIRE MATCHMAKER – 9:00PM (Bravo - an NBC/Universal Network) Also on Bravo tonight: the season premiere of your favorite show about horrible rich people so unappealing that their money can't help them attract a proper mate. Your first loveseeker tonight is a "fast-talking Internet" mogul, and really, is there any other kind of Internet mogul? ANTICIPATION: SKETCHY!

    ANTHONY BOURDAIN: NO RESERVATIONS – 9:00PM (Travel Channel) Tony hits the Ukraine and visits Chernobyl. We'll see if he has the stones to sample their famed three-eyed wolf testicle dish. ANTICIPATION: WOLF NUGGETS!
