Who would suspect that "The Challenge" (9 p.m., MTV, TV-14) was entering its 25th season? Technically, it's "The Challenge: Free Agents" this season. It changes its enigmatic subtitle with every outing. In fact, "The Challenge" wasn't always "The Challenge"; it started out in June 1998 as "Road Rules: All Stars" before turning into "Real World/Road Rules Challenge" and eventually abbreviating itself into "The Challenge."

This season, 28 players — let's call them "Free Agents" — fly down to Uruguay to compete for $350,000 in prizes. Has a game show/reality series ever kicked off in Uruguay before? When you last for 25 seasons, there's always a chance for a first.
