Barbra Streisand drops by "The Oprah Winfrey Show" (WJLA at 4 p.m.), and super special guest Robert Redford makes his first appearance on the show for a "The Way We Were" reunion.

The players stop competing long enough to console the only fellow contestant who didn't receive a video from home on "The Biggest Loser" (NBC at 8); but getting back to the contest, everyone starts competing by themselves, including during a test of balance.

Mr. Schuester prides himself on being a "hip" teacher (seriously, he raps) on "Glee" (Fox at 8), but he's in for some competition when an even cooler teacher (guest star Gwyneth Paltrow) acts as a substitute and belts out some Cee-Lo Green.

Ziva's father stops by "NCIS" (CBS at 8) and the team tries to protect him at a conference, but given that this is a special, two-part episode, things may not go as planned.

"NCIS: Los Angeles" (CBS at 9) also goes the two-parter route, and kicks off Part 1 with the team looking for a book with confidential information after an antiques dealer is found murdered.

Secrets about Lux's background on "Life Unexpected" (CW at 9) begin to emerge when Cate starts looking into the past of her biological teen daughter, who, by the way, is on the prowl for her sexy teacher during the school's homecoming dance.

"Dancing With the Stars" (ABC at 9) narrows the field to the final three before the finale next week, but not before hearing from musical performances by Annie Lennox and Enrique Iglesias.

Poor, adorable little Hope may not be able to attend a classier day care thanks to her new family's legal troubles on "Raising Hope" (Fox at 9), but Jimmy tries to take care of the problems.

Just as Alicia thinks she's done with a case helping a teen pop star (guest star Miranda Cosgrove of "iCarly") with a DUI, the young singer is unexpectedly also accused of attempted murder on "The Good Wife" (CBS at 10).

Bill and Jen decide to hit up Las Vegas on "The Little Couple" (TLC at 10), though in addition to all the fun, they must hang out with Jen's parents.

A group of four freshmen start college in the fall of 1986 and learn all about the world of fraternities and being the lowest people on the totem pole on new series "Glory Daze" (TBS at 10).

Musician Jay-Z and chef Jamie Oliver stop by "Late Show With David Letterman" (CBS at 11:35), along with musical guest Rihanna.
