Tonight on TV - The need for speed

Tonight you can really get your adrenaline pumping. No, I don't mean by cheering on your favorite acts in America's Got Talent's first Las Vegas showcase episode or laughing at the idiots on Wipeout.

No, tonight's about fighter planes.

NOVA - 8 pm - WNTV Cold war rivalries extend to the present day as Russian and American fighter pilots battle it out over MiG Alley, a strip of airspace above the North Korean-Chinese border.

CARRIER - 9 pm - WNTV This series follows the real workings of life aboard the aircraft carrier USS Nimitz. Tonight we witness the crew saying goodbye to loved ones as the mighty ship prepares to set sail.
