The L.A. Complex (8 p.m., CW/Ch. 30) is sort of the Canadian version of "Melrose Place." Set in Los Angeles. Really.

It's a Canadian production (which aired in The Great White North earlier this year) about a group of show biz wannabes who live in the same apartment complex, dream big dreams and sleep with each other.

It's all very soapy. But there's nothing wrong with a good soap opera. And this shows promise of being a decent soap opera.

Also tonight, President Obama makes his first appearance on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon (11:35 p.m., NBC/Ch. 5).

Fallon won't be in his home studio in New York City - the episode is being taped on the campus of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
