It's official. I am thoroughly sick of Ozzy, Sharon and the kids. The last straw came last week, when the untalented Jack was invited to judge talent on "Star Search." The Osbournes are seriously overexposed and in grave danger of crossing over into Steven Tyler territory.
MTV's first family is host of the 30th Annual American Music Awards (7 p.m., ABC), broadcast live from the Shrine Auditorium in Los Angeles.
The Osbournes also are feted on "100 Moments That Rocked TV" (9 p.m., VH1), a carelessly compiled collection of clips with host Molly Shannon. The five-night series will count down 20 classic moments per night.
- Just how did one of the bravest military heroes of the American Revolution become the greatest turncoat in American history? "Benedict Arnold: A Question of Honor" (7 p.m., A&E;) stars Aidan Quinn as the fearless soldier driven to treason by his debts, the wiles of a woman and the feeling that he just wasn't truly appreciated by the Continental Congress. Quinn shows fire, but he can't keep this costume drama out of the wax museum.
Tonight's other highlights
- "The American Experience" (8 p.m., PBS) begins a three-part history of "Chicago: City of the Century."
- A mother's (Barbara Hershey) eating disorders affect her children in the 2003 cable drama "Hunger Point" (8 p.m., Lifetime).
- Starting this week, the "Adult Swim" (10 p.m., Cartoon Network) block will air five nights a week, from Sunday through Thursday.
Football fever on "King of Queens" (7 p.m., CBS) ... Harper frets about a new hoop star on "Boston Public" (7 p.m., Fox) ... Lucy's puppet theater attracts a new member on "7th Heaven" (7 p.m., WB). Ray and Debra expect Robert to remain in their debt on "Everybody Loves Raymond" (8 p.m., CBS).
