WEEK AHEAD: Jen Aniston's Broadway Quickie

Plus: The return of John Legend, Marie Antoinette and more

What will happen when Jennifer Aniston hits the Broadway stage with less than 24 hours to prepare her role? Find out when the actress – and celebrity guests – take part in The 24 Hour Plays on Broadway. PEOPLE gets an inside look at the event, plus other events to watch out for in the coming week:

SUNDAY, OCT. 22: He struggled with addiction (alcohol, steroids, you name it), tried to save his crumbling marriage and ultimately got clean on the VH1 reality series Breaking Bonaduce. But what will Danny Bonaduce do for his second season (9:30 p.m. ET)? Expect more angst from the former Partridge Family star as he tries to stay on the straight-and-narrow path.

MONDAY, OCT. 23: Fresh off her directorial debut, Jennifer Aniston touches down on Broadway for a limited engagement starring in the benefit event The 24 Hour Plays on Broadway. The slapdash, fast-paced workshop has writers, actors and directors – including Erika Christensen, Edie Falco, Matt Dillon and more – competing against the clock to produce six 10-minute plays with just one day for the writing, casting and rehearsal process. Their results will debut at the American Airlines Theatre at 8 p.m. (and the proceeds support arts education in New York City schools). Phew! We need a water break after just thinking about that.

Dog owners bow at the feet of canine guru Cesar Millan and it’s not hard to see why. The Dog Whisperer star, whose motto is “I rehabilitate dogs – I train people,” can turn a biting, raging pooch and make him a calm, submissive four-legged friend. Watch the L.A.-based Millan work his magic as he turns clueless owners into pack leaders (National Geographic, 9 p.m. ET)

TUESDAY, OCT 24: As if his album’s title, Once Again, isn’t clear enough, let’s state the obvious: John Legend is back. The silky-voiced R&B crooner gets behind his piano again for a new batch of songs that shake things up a bit by incorporating some rock elements into his sound. And, yes, mentor Kanye West has lent production help for his sophomore outing. Next, Legend will get on the road, embarking on a concert tour Oct. 26 in Washington, D.C.
