Prime choices


With the field expanded from five films to 10, there's no room here to list all of the best-picture nominees for "The 82nd Academy Awards." In fact, there's barely enough space to tell you that Alec Baldwin, below left, and Steve Martin will . . . (ABC, 5:30 p.m.)


The long dry spell is over, "Gossip Girl" fans: Get the latest dish on Serena and Nate (Blake Lively, Chace Crawford) and all of your favorite Upper East Siders as the teen-themed nighttime soap returns with the first of 10 new episodes. (KTLA, 9 p.m.)


On the mean streets of Chicago, a battle has long raged over which local eatery -- Al's Beef or Mr. Beef -- boasts the best Italian beef sandwich, one of many similar culinary rivalries to be detailed in the new series "Food Wars." (Travel, 10 and 10:30 p.m.)


Watch New York City socialite Tinsley Mortimer and her Park Avenue pals shop 'til they drop and party hop like they just can't stop in the new docu-series "High Society." It's like a grown-up "Gossip Girl," but, like, for real. (KTLA, 9:30 p.m.)


"SNL's" Gen-Y jester Andy Samberg, above left, guest stars on "The Sarah Silverman Program," playing Sarah's imaginary childhood friend. As if our potty-mouthed princess needed any help getting into trouble . . . (Comedy Central, 10:30 p.m.)

"Who Is Clark Rockefeller?" That question is asked and answered in this new docudrama about the con artist who passed himself off as a scion of the famous family. "Will & Grace's" Eric McCormack, above, and "ER's" Sherry Stringfield star. (Lifetime, 9 p.m.)


The new "what-if" special "Aftermath: World Without Oil" uses dramatizations and CGI animation to illustrate best- and worst-case scenarios for that day in the not-too-distant future when all the wells have run dry. (National Geographic, 7 and 10 p.m. Mon.)


Thanks to cellphones and the Internet, cheating and plagiarism are easier than ever for today's young students. Progress, perhaps . . . but it's still wrong, kids. Linda Ellerbee examines the issue on a new "Nick News Special Edition." (Nickelodeon, 8 p.m. Sun.)
