Critic’s corner: What’s on TV tonight

The Real World: Portland 10 p.m., MTV

Put a bird on “The Real World.” It’s going to the artisanal capital of the universe this season, so expect well water in that hot tub. There will be a dog in the house, too. By the way, cast member Johnny Reilly is a local boy, from West Bridgewater, and the MTV blurb about him implies that — big surprise — he will be hooking up with one of the roommates when “the beautiful Averey catches his eye.” This is the 28th season of the show, which premiered in 1992.
