The Greatest Event in Television History (Adult Swim, 12 a.m.) — The first special, with Jon Hamm and Adam Scott as Simon AND Simon, was brilliant, so expect the same for tonight’s, a shot-for-shot remake of Hart to Hart‘s opening credits, starring Scott, Amy Poehler, and Horatio Sanz.

Burn Notice (USA, 9 p.m.) — Season premiere. Please consult Danger’s guide for any and all questions.

NBA Finals: Spurs at Heat (ABC, 9 p.m.) — Or, with all the LeBron coverage, an excuse for Spurs fans to complain that Tim Duncan is THE MOST UNDERRATED PLAYER IN BASKETBALL HISTORY, even though he’s perfectly rated.

In The Flesh (BBC America, 10 p.m.) — Series premiere. Now that Orphan Black and Doctor Who are gone, you should strongly think about making In the Flesh, a miniseries about rehabilitated zombies, your one BBC America show. Or else British zombies will eat your face, with a side of crumpets.

Graceland (USA, 10 p.m.) — Series premiere. With special guest stars Ladysmith Black Mambazo, I hope.

Hannibal (NBC, 10 p.m.) — EDDIE IZZARD ALERT. (Said alert sounds like this.)

LATE-NIGHT GUESTS: Vince Vaughn, Andy Kindler, and Queens of the Stone Age on Letterman; Henry Cavill and She & Him on Leno; Jonah Hill, Arvind Mahankali, and the Lonely Island on Kimmel; Betty White and Sarah Paulson on Ferguson; Christopher Meloni, Cat Deeley, and Broken Social Scene on Fallon; Danny McBride on Conan; Jon Stewart’s final show until September; and Stephen King, John Mellencamp, and T Bone Burnett on Colbert.
