Best Bets on TV Tonight


"Iconoclasts" (9 p.m., Sundance Channel): "Sometimes you would draw these waves that were massive, and then you'd put a little tiny guy on them," says Pearl Jam's Eddie Vedder, recalling his long-ago classroom artistry. "Well, Laird Hamilton was the guy that turned those notebook drawings into reality." "Eddie Vedder is a man, a father and the defender of rock 'n' roll," says noted big-wave surfer Hamilton, adding: "He surfs and he loves the ocean." Sounds like the start of a great friendship as these two come together for the second season debut of "Iconoclasts."
The six-part Sundance Channel series pairs off innovators from different fields who meet and spend time discussing their respective passions and creative techniques.
"Ugly Betty" (8 p.m., ABC): The humiliations continue for poor "Ugly Betty." Tonight, our plucky gal reports to work all dressed up for Mode's Halloween costume contest. Only one problem: There is no contest. Talk about a frightful experience.
"The Office" (8:30 p.m., NBC): If you missed the episode "Gay Witch Hunt" from a month ago, you should catch this repeat of it. This is the funniest episode on any sitcom this year.
