Watch: If you missed Julian Assange on the first airing, catch him on the rerun of "Real Time With Bill Maher." Ever wondered what different cuts of meat mean? Mario's breaking it down on "The Chew," and Carl Reiner's schooling Kimmel (and fellow guest Mindy Kaling) on comedy. (We assume. Carl Reiner is awesome.) Also awesome: Fallon's random guest combo of Carmelo Anthony and John Goodman.
Skip: If David Spade isn't your thing -- and he isn't ours, "Tommy Boy" aside -- avoid "Ellen DeGeneres" today.

Watch: Shay Mitchell tells some "Pretty Little" lies on "Nikki & Sara Live." "The Chew" takes Fat Tuesday verrrrrry seriously with jambalaya recipes and a visit to New Orleans's premiere king-cake baker. Cissy Houston is talking about Whitney on "The View" (and since Whitney's daughter is on record as saying Cissy's book is BS, you might see some fireworks there). And we can only hope Charles Barkley lends Jewel some backing vocals on Leno.Read More »from In the Hot Seat: What to watch (or not) on TV talk shows the week of February 11
