Sunday

Sunday is the Major League Baseball: World Series Game #4 on FOX at 8/7c.

Tonight is also the series premiere of Sex Rehab with Dr. Drew on VH1 at 10/9c. Addictions are nothing new, and most people are aware of those involving alcohol, drugs, and eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia, but few know about and understand sex addiction. It afflicts roughly 3%-6% of the American population, and just like other addictions, its impact on personal lives can be devastating. The affliction can wreak havoc on the mental and physical health of those afflicted as well as destroy marriages, families, careers and even finances. Dr. Drew and a team of the nation’s foremost experts on sexual addiction will guide eight patients through an intensive state of the art program. Living together for 21 days, they’ll meet with Dr. Drew in daily one-on-one and group therapy sessions in order to get to the root of their compulsive behavior.

Finally, it’s the series premiere of Styl’D on MTV at 10/9c. What happens when you mix celebrities, high profile stylists, and a group of eager junior stylists vying for a coveted job at the prestigious Margaret Maldonado Agency? Find out when MTV takes you inside the competitive world of fashion. The series follows five junior stylists: Gary, Tara, Janna, Brett, and Cody, as they embark on the experience of their lives working for Jen Rade, Eric Archibald, and Julie Weiss, the senior stylists for the Margaret Maldonado Agency.
