By Robert Bianco, USA TODAY

?RuPaul promises to liven up a slow summer tonight with the relaunch of his Logo series RuPaul's Drag U (9 ET/PT).

Falco: Break time for Nurse Jackie.

Unlike his beauty-pageant-themed Race, which often falls back on the same kind of exaggerated back-biting that mars most reality shows, Drag U is designed to be a sweeter show, as RuPaul helps women get in touch with their inner divas.

Tonight's guest is model Beverly Johnson, with later episodes featuring Shirley Jones, Carnie Wilson and Molly Ringwald.

?If you think Mondays are slow now, wait until after tonight as we pass the season finale of Showtime's Nurse Jackie (10 ET/PT).

This wasn't, perhaps, its best stretch, as it often felt as if Jackie was replowing old ground.

Still, it offered more than its share of amusing moments, and more than any show's share of fabulous performances, Edie Falco's star turn among them.
