Best Bets on TV Tonight



"The Wonder Pets" (11:30 a.m., Nickelodeon): Three animated pets who sing and travel the world star in this animated series described as a minioperetta for preschoolers. The dialogue of Linny the Guinea Pig, Ming-Ming Duckling and Turtle Tuck is sung, and the music is recorded with a live orchestra. The pets also save baby animals in distress, modeling a combination of kindness and teamwork.
NAACP Image Awards (8 p.m., Fox): The riveting Oscar-nominated movie "Crash" is a leading contender at tonight's 37th NAACP Image Awards, which honor people of color who have made outstanding contributions to society through their work in film, music and television. Carlos Santana is scheduled to be inducted into the Image Awards hall of fame.
"Conviction" (10 p.m., NBC): This new series from "Law & amp; Order" mastermind Dick Wolf strays from the "L & amp;O" formula while bringing some personality, some youthful energy and even some sex to the procedural. The show tells the story of an engaging group of raw assistant district attorneys working the system in New York, and it opens with an immediately gripping pilot episode that hints that "Conviction" could be the best legal series to come along in years.
