Happy Labor Day! As you enjoy the tail-end of summer, there are plenty of TV marathons to get you through the day. RHOBH is back on the schedule, despite recent tragedies, and tributes to 9/11 pop up on the schedule. Here's what's on TV Monday.
First off, since it is a national holiday today the cable networks are all about marathoning their programming. Some highlights include Top Gear on BBC America, House Hunters on HGTV, and The Closer on TNT. As for rerun marathons, A&E has Criminal Minds, FX will have How I Met Your Mother on loop, and TLC will marathon its recent acquisition Undercover Boss.
The big premiere tonight is the return of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Bravo decided to follow through with its original premiere date plans despite Russell Armstrong's suicide last month. The program has been reedited and will likely feature interviews discussing the tragedy. Also, be on the lookout for some suicide prevention PSAs. The show premieres at 10pm and Sandra Smith is back to bring you all the highlights!
Finally, as the tenth anniversary of 9/11 approaches, specials commemorating the event will start appearing on the dial. On Biography at 8pm is the special When Pop Culture Saved America: A 9/11 Story, which looks at how celebrities aided in the healing process in the aftermath. At 10pm on NBC is the special Children of 9/11, which follows 11 children whose lives were directly affected by the attacks.
