2015 MTV Video Music Awards

COMEDY, 9:00 pm ET

From the Microsoft Theater at L.A. Live in Los Angeles, Miley Cyrus hosts this annual, celebrity-packed celebration of the year's best music videos. It's Taylor Swift, however, who leads the pack of nominees, with nine nods. Audience favorite Ed Sheeran is second, with six nominations. Kendrick Lamar scored four nominations for his video "Alright," but he's also a featured performer on Swift's "Bad Blood" (seven nods) and Flying Lotus's "Never Catch Me" (two nods). In years past, the awards ceremony has been fodder for water cooler discussions including twerking, dresses made of meat, unusual duet pairings and the kiss between Madonna and Britney Spears that we will never forget. Who will shock, surprise or amaze us this year?

IndyCar Racing

The IndyCar championship is on the line tonight in Northern California, as Sonoma Raceway plays host to the season-closing GoPro Grand Prix of Sonoma. Title contenders Juan Pablo Montoya, Graham Rahal, Scott Dixon, Helio Castroneves and Will Power will do battle on the scenic 2.385-mile, 12-turn natural-terrain road course that features elevation changes and varied turns that require downshifting. Dixon won here for the fourth time last year.
