THINGS TO VIEW
How I Met Your Mother, 8 p.m., CBS : It's the first rule of sitcom weddings: Everything goes wrong, and wacky high jinks ensue. Marshall and Lily's (Jason Segel, Alyson Hannigan) nuptial day is no exception.
Two and a Half Men, 9 p.m., CBS : Memo to Charlie: Either hire ugly guys to work on your house, or quit dating shallow women. Singer Enrique Iglesias guest stars in this new episode as a hunky handyman hired to do some work at Chez Harper. While there, he catches the eye and the heart of the young lady whom Charlie (Charlie Sheen) is romancing.
Heroes, 9 p.m., NBC: Hiro and Ando (Masi Oka, James Kyson Lee) face a test of their resolve to save the world, Nathan (Adrian Pasdar) takes drastic steps to ensure victory in the election, and Thompson (Eric Roberts) brings new blood into the company. Ellen Greene guest stars as Sylar's (Zachary Quinto) mom.
American Experience: Amelia Earhart, 9 p.m., PBS : She wasn't just a skilled pilot; she was charming and a master of self- promotion. All these qualities combined to make Amelia Earhart a cultural icon even before her mysterious disappearance during an attempt to fly around the world. This profile remembers both the public and private Earhart - a woman who loved the spotlight but paid a high price for her fame.
The King of Queens, 9:30 p.m., CBS : Will there be a Prince or Princess of Queens? Since sitcoms have a tendency to jump the shark when a baby comes along, it's good this tired plot is one week before the series calls it quits.
