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

9-10PM
SEASON PREMIERE: THE SURREAL LIFE
(VH1) Any show that employs Andy Dick as celebrity greeter/security screener/model sniffer must be onto something. Dick ushers in the new housemates with such elan (to Omarosa: "You are a huge bitch. Are you bitchier than me?") that we fear the vacuum when he's gone. No worries. The "Apprentice" shrew is bitchier than Dick and can't resist easy targets like "Top Model's" Dickinson and baseballer Canseco, asking the latter, "Did you beat the s-- out of your wife?" As for the rest, Denton and Hart play nice, Pinchot ignores his agent's warning not to sexually harass his roomies, and Caprice is nearly irrelevant (except when Dick applies his probing proboscis), but on balance this may be the most supreme "Surreal" yet.

EW Grade: A-

Best of the rest

8-10PM
AMAZING ANIMAL INVENTIONS
(Animal Planet, TV-G) Hey, you! Yeah, you with the "ball-throwing machine" that keeps your lazy butt from actually playing fetch. Your dog is way too good for you.

8:30-9PM
SERIES DEBUT: THE PRINCES OF MALIBU
(Fox, TV-14-DLS) David Foster produced hits for Whitney Houston and discovered Josh Groban; his songwriter wife, Linda Thompson, has two sons -- Brandon, 24, and Brody, 21 -- with ex-husband Bruce Jenner. The boys are worthless, feckless layabouts, living off David's dime. David is pissed. And there's your show. "Princes" proves that if you own a big house somewhere in California and tend to yell a lot, someone will put you on TV. It's either an interesting/appalling look at yet another set of Hollywood parenting techniques or a fascinating tale of karmic revenge for discovering Josh Groban. -- Whitney Pastorek

EW Grade: C+

9-10PM
IRON CHEF AMERICA
(Food Network, TV-G) Todd English battles Mario Batali to see who's master of their pizza dough-main.

9-11PM
OPEN HOUSE
(CBS, TV-PG-DLS) Two-year-old TV movie heralding CBS' summer weekend ratings surrender. (R)

9-10PM
TIME CHANGE ALERT!: SIX FEET UNDER
(HBO) HBO is fiddling with scheduling midseason, so SFU moves back to its original night and time, while the Hollywood boys of Entourage move into the 10 p.m. spot. Which means if you tune in at 9 wondering why Turtle and Johnny Drama got a job at a funeral home, don't come calling us in confusion.

10-10:30PM
ENTOURAGE
(HBO, TV-MA) Ari tries to get Vince to do a Lost in Translation and shoot an overseas commercial. Scarlett Johansson not included.

10-10:30PM
SERIES DEBUT: HOGAN KNOWS BEST
(VH1, TV-PG) The difference between you and Hulkie isn't wrestling, it's that you never thought to hide a GPS device in your daughter's car.

10:30-11PM
SEASON PREMIERE: CELEBRITY FIT CLUB
(VH1) Gary Busey, Willie Aames, and poor Phil Margera (Bam's dad) participate in the second season of the weight-loss race. Fans of the drama-filled first season (note to VH1: Never hire a Baldwin not named Alec again) can look forward to the triumphant return of the Snapple Lady, Wendy Kaufman. Frankly, we're looking forward to hearing Busey say some of the craziest stuff ever recorded on television.
