Prime choices

SUNDAY

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.)

MONDAY

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.)

TUESDAY

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.)

WEDNESDAY

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.)

THURSDAY

"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.)

FRIDAY

Hungry for some down-home humor? The new special "Melissa Peterman: Am I the Only One?" features the former "Reba" costar and current "Singing Bee" hostess offering up heapin' helpings of same in a stand-up show recorded in Nashville. (CMT, 10 p.m.)

SATURDAY

"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.)

RUNNING ON EMPTY

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.)

ACADEMIC EPIDEMIC

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.)
