Watch it

“Dateline NBC” (7 p.m., NBC). A special investigation called “America Now: Children of the Harvest” (not to be confused with “Children of the Corn”), detailing the lives of migrant farmworkers and underage workers in the fields. Sounds like it could be good.

“Next Food Network Star” (9 p.m., Food Network). Ted Allen guest judges as the contestants head to Frank Sinatra’s Palm Springs estate and cook up retro food. Is there any way Aarti can blow this? She’s looked like the winner from Day 1.

“Hung” (10 p.m., HBO). Tanya gets advice from a pimp on how to deal with Tanya’s bullying. I’m guessing . . . smack her?

“Entourage” (10:30 p.m., HBO). Drama is reluctant to do a sitcom (he’s not called Johnny Sitcom, you know) and Vince gets buddy-buddy with skeezy agent Scott Lavin.

“Austin City Limits” (11 p.m., PBS). It’s a rerun, but a good one: Aimee Mann and Iron & Wine perform.

Record it

“Ice Road Truckers” (9 p.m., History). Good to watch on a hot summer evening. More ice, please.

“True Blood” (9 p.m., HBO). Sookie seeks help to deal with the werewolves. How about a rolled-up newspaper or a spray bottle?

“24 Hour Restaurant Battle” (10 p.m., Food Network). Series premiere. Two teams have one day to set up and open a restaurant. Looks like a total ripoff of the annual Restaurant Wars challenge on “Top Chef.”

“The Glades” (10 p.m., A&E) Jeff finds a dead body in an abandoned airplane while out bug hunting. I hate when that happens. Actually I watched last week’s series premiere, and it wasn’t bad. It’s a notch below “Burn Notice” quality, but decent summer fare.

Skip it

“Leverage” (9 p.m., TNT). So dumbed down it makes “Murder She Wrote” look like ‘The Wire.” Tonight, “high-tech outlaws creep into the country music scene.” Wow, that just sounds terrible.

“Strange Sex” (10 p.m., TLC). Series premiere. It’s pretty much as the title describes it. Tonight: The ultimate Cougar — a 73-year-old woman and her 33-year-old boy toy. Sounds creepy.
