Gary Sinise and Joe Mantegna co-host the “National Memorial Day Concert 2010,” a patriotic salute to America's men and women in uniform, with musical guests Lionel Richie, Brad Paisley and Yolanda Adams. (KCET, 8 and 9:30 p.m.)


It is said that the child is the father to the man. But who has time to ponder such platitudes in today's fast-paced world? So it's off to “Dad Camp,” a crash course for expectant fathers led by Dr. Jeff Gardere, in this new reality series. (VH1, 10:30 p.m.)


Is your family fat, not fit? Have no fear, personal trainer Jillian Michaels of “Biggest Loser” fame is here to help you and yours get your rears in gear in the new series “Losing It With Jillian.” And please, no snacking while watching. (NBC, 10 p.m.)


“Are We There Yet?” How often do your kids say that? You'll hear it a lot more in this new family sitcom based on the hit 2005 movie and starring “Everybody Hates Chris'” Terry Crews (below left with Coy Stewart). (TBS, 9 and 9:30 p.m.)


Spy-out-of-water Michael Westen (Jeffrey Donovan) is back in action on “Burn Notice,” while doctor-out-of-his-element Hank Lawson (Mark Feuerstein) continues to ply his trade in the Hamptons on the return of “Royal Pains.” (USA, 9 and 10 p.m.)


“Laodicean… L-A-O-D-I-C-I-E-A-N… Laodicean.” That's the word that won it for last year's champ, Kavya Shivashankar. See if you can keep up with the current crop of hopefuls at “The 2010 Scripps National Spelling Bee.” (ABC, 8 p.m.)


A low-level corporate functionary named Wikus (Sharlto Copley) learns the true meaning of “alienation” when he undergoes a terrifying transformation in director Neill Blomkamp's unsettling 2009 sci-fi allegory “District 9.” (Starz, 9 p.m.)


“Where are the weapons of mass destruction?” That's just one of the questions put to the former Iraqi dictator by a lone FBI agent in a series of encounters reenacted in the new special “Interrogating Saddam.” (National Geographic, 7 and 10 p.m. Sun.)


The new documentary “I Knew It Was You: Rediscovering John Cazale” profiles the late, great 1970s-era actor best known for his role as Michael Corleone's ill-fated brother in “The Godfather” and “The Godfather Part II.” (HBO, 8 p.m. Tue.)


What they lack in height, they more than make up for in headlocks and half-nelsons. They're “Half Pint Brawlers,” little people looking to make it big in the pro wrestling world, and they're profiled in this new series. (Spike, 11 p.m. Wed.)
