Top 40 continues on America's Got Talent

Tonight's America's Got Talent will be tame compared to Miley Cyrus' pole dance at the Teen Choice Awards.

Miley before she readies her pole danceEveryone's talking about the Teen Choice Awards but the chatter has nothing at all to do with who won or lost. Most of the talk is about Miley Cyrus' pole dance during her performance at the 2009 Teen Choice Awards. To make matters worse, the pole was attached to an ice cream cart and she was dressed in barely-there shorts and a visible bra. Not that we haven't seen worse than this, but many people think this behavior was inappropriate for a show aimed at teens.

I'm not sure which side of the fence I fall on in that discussion, but there's no doubt about where I stand with Dane Cook. The comedian deemed The Teen Choice Awards the perfect place to make a joke about girls using their phones to send nude photos to their boyfriends. It was clearly a poke at the latest Vanessa Hudgens scandal and the comment was edited out of the broadcast.

What do you think? Inappropriate behavior for a teen-oriented TV show or is this just kids being modern kids? Let us know!

Tonight's top TV picks:

More to Love hosts a prom

America's Got Talent (9:00 NBC)

The second group of ten acts takes to the America's Got Talent stage in hopes of making it through to the semi-final round along with those who survived last week's cut.

More to Love (9:00 Fox)

They hated it the first time and now they have to do it again. It's Prom Night on More to Love.

Chopped (10:00 Food Network)

Food Network's fast, weekly cooking competition show, chefs are tasked with making an appetizer, entree and dessert using all of the strange ingredients in their mystery baskets. Tonight on Chopped they'll be dealing with star fruit and spicy merguez sausage and I can only hope that's not dessert.

Days of our Lives is now available for download from NBC

News and notable
