Psych (USA, 10 p.m.) – Season premiere. Last season ended (seemingly nine years ago) with Shawn’s dad taking a bullet to the chest. Tonight’s premiere picks up from there, with Shawn going on a rampage to punish everyone responsible. This show is one of my guilty pleasures. I’m glad it’s back.
Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (NBC, 9 p.m.) – From TV Guide: “An up-and-coming singer is beaten by her famous boyfriend, but she won’t assist the prosecution. Before long, a media frenzy surrounds the case, and the defendant and his relentless lawyer add fuel to the fire.” This could be about literally anyone.
The Americans (FX, 10 p.m.) – I can’t think of any jokes about Felicity or the 1980s right now, so, I guess, just watch the show. It’s good.
Modern Family (ABC, 9 p.m.) – Elizabeth Banks is back as Cam and Mitchell’s wild-ass friend. This brings up an important point: Have you listened to her episode of Marc Maron’s WTF podcast? You really, really should. She seems like an incredibly cool lady.
Boston’s Finest/Southland (TNT, 10 p.m.) – Series premiere of Boston’s Finest. From TV Guide: “The work and lives of Boston cops are traced in this reality series co-executive produced by Donnie Wahlberg.” Holdonholdonholdon. A show/movie about blue collar workers/tough guys/cops from Boston? And it’s produced by or stars a Wahlberg? UNHEARD OF!
Battle for the Elephants (PBS, 9 p.m.) – Not what you think it is.
Top Chef (Bravo, 10 p.m.) – Season finale. If you want to get caught up, I recommend poking through the recaps at KSK. Cooking show recaps on a football site? That’s almost as crazy as that Wahlberg thing!
