“TANKED” (9 p.m., ANIMAL PLANET): The celebrity-themed episode is called “Lifestyles of the Fish and Famous.” That title alone is enough to get us to take the bait.

“VENUS AND SERENA” (9 p.m., SHOWTIME): The U.S. Tennis Association sued to have this documentary about the game’s greatest sister act banned because it contains scenes “not in the best interest of the sport.” That, of course, makes us want to see it even more. The film is touted as an “unfiltered” look into the lives of the iconic Williams siblings, who faced long odds and broke ground in a sport that wasn’t always welcoming.

“SAY YES TO THE DRESS” (8 p.m., TLC): In the interest of politeness, you really ought to say “yes, please.”

“MISS U MUCH,” 9 p.m., VH1: Have you been wondering what original “American Idol” runner-up Justin Guarini has been up to? No? Well, tough — there’s nothing else on.
