(Entertainment Weekly) -- Entertainment Weekly's daily guide to notable shows:

8-10PM
SERIES DEBUT: INTO THE WEST
(TNT, TV-14-LV) Tatonka grazing on the prairie sure seems familiar. But before you can say "Dances With Wolves," half the herd dives over a cliff, while the rest trample a score of Native Americans. It's a symbol for the warring (and intermingled) tribes in the Steven Spielberg-produced "West": Native and white Americans. In this debut, a Native (Simon R. Baker) fights destiny as a medicine man, while a settler (Tyler Christopher) joins up with mountaineer Jedediah Smith (Josh Brolin). "West" later grows epic in scope and cast (Keith Carradine, Keri Russell, and Beau Bridges appear), to tell the tale of two peoples united in blood.

EW Grade: B+

Best of the rest

8-9PM
OUR HOUSE: A VERY REAL DOCUMENTARY ABOUT KIDS OF GAY AND LESBIAN PARENTS
(Sundance Channel, TV-14) When Heather has two mommies, she gets no closet space.

8-9:45PM
GO FIGURE
(Disney Channel, TV-G) An ice skater joins the hockey team so she can train with its coach. Like foreign languages, manipulating situations to your advantage is best learned in childhood.

9-10PM
SERIES DEBUT: NBA ROOKIES
(Spike TV, TV-PG) Newbies from the Magic, Mavs, and the '76ers learn how to be young, rich, and spoiled.

10:30-11PM
FUR ON THE ASPHALT: GREG THE BUNNY REUNION SPECIAL
(IFC) Ex-puppet stars Greg and Warren are looking for career resurrection (which they'll get when they return to IFC in August). Until then, we'll take cameos of Greg star Seth Green and Jon Favreau (who denies that Warren created "Dinner for Five"). The rest is rushed, with no time to enjoy the prostitute-on-puppet sex scene in Vegas. -- Mandi Bierly

EW Grade: C

11-11:30PM
SERIES PREMIERE: P. DIDDY PRESENTS THE BAD BOYS OF COMEDY
(HBO) The hip-hop mogul makes a move on the world of stand-up. His showcase of rising black stars will be followed by the season premiere of another rap pioneer's show, "Russell Simmons Presents Def Poetry." Coming next year: "Suge Knight's Def Installation Art Jam."

11:30PM-MIDNIGHT
SEASON PREMIERE: RUSSELL SIMMONS PRESENTS DEF POETRY
(HBO, TV-MA) Haiku: Does anyone blame/ Kimora's man for being/ A workaholic?
