Entertainment Weekly's daily guide to notable shows:

7-7:30 PM
THE LIFE & TIMES OF JUNIPER LEE
(Cartoon Network, TV-Y-7) There may be more than one link between "The Real World: San Francisco's" Puck and Cartoon Network, but the one that counts is MTV survivor Judd Winick, creator of "Juniper Lee."

The 11-year-old's family legacy is saving the world from monsters, and while she struggles with the kid thing, she's got beastie-battling down (aging hippie leprechauns, cool; giant flame-spewing hamsters, not).

Since this is Cartoon Network, there's plenty to please adults (pity the clown working the kid's birthday party -- he has a master's from Yale).

EW Grade: A-

Best of the rest

6:30-8 PM
UNKNOWN SOLDIER: SEARCHING FOR A FATHER
(HBO, TV-PG) A son longs to know the dad he lost in Vietnam. It is Memorial Day, y'all. It's s'posed to be heavy ...

7-10:30 PM
FREDERICK FORSYTH'S ICON
(Hallmark Channel, TV-14) ... which is why Patrick Swayze's goin' all Cold War on our asses in this Russian spy thriller ...

8-10 PM
FAITH OF MY FATHERS
(A&E, TV-PG) ... and John McCain's making us look like wankers 'cause he spent five and a half years in a Hanoi prison and turned down early release. OK, maybe he's got a point.

9-10 PM
SERIES DEBUT: HELL'S KITCHEN
(Fox, TV-PG-L) British chef Gordon Ramsay heads Stateside to give culinary masochists the biggest high since Bill Murray yelled "Candy bar!"

9-10:59 PM
MISS UNIVERSE 2005 PAGEANT
(NBC, TV-PG) Another year, another Jupiter boycott. Typical.
