Tonight's Picks: Kathy Griffin, Chocolate and an 80s Classic

Twist and shout with Ferris -- you know you want to.

Ferris Bueller's Day Off (8 p.m., AMC): This 1986 John Hughes classic features Matthew Broderick at his best, when sweater vests were all the rage and ditching school was so ... rock 'n' roll.

Unwrapped (9 p.m., FOOD): Not much needs to be said about an episode entitled "Lots of Chocolate," other than that it includes a trip to the delightful San Francisco Ghirardelli Square Chocolate Festival and a behind-the-scenes peek at Yoo-Hoo production.

The Closer (9 p.m., TNT): Adam Arkin, star of Chicago Hope and son of Alan Arkin, directs Kyra Sedgwick and company in this episode. The Priority Homicide Division, led by Deputy Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson (Sedgwick), investigates the death of a chauvinistic socialite and Internet personality.

Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List (10 p.m., BRAVO): Kathy Griffin chums around with Rosie O'Donnell and Gloria Estefan in Miami while shopping for a second home. Estefan even lets Griffin manage her hotel for a day.

The Colbert Report (11:30 p.m., Comedy Central): "Conservative" pundit Stephen T. Colbert will meet his match with guest Paul Krugman, liberal op-ed columnist for The New York Times, Nobel prize-winner and professor of economics at Princeton University. Krugman's recent column criticized President Obama's economic policy -- could Colbert and Krugman actually agree on something?

Don't forget the finale of The Bachelorette at 9 p.m. on ABC!

I anm surprised they have not remade Ferris Bueller's day off yet. They have everything else.
