Watch it

“Wipeout” (8 p.m., ABC). What can I say, it’s still fun.

“White Collar” (9 p.m., USA). Peter and Neal try to help an insurance investigator who someone wants dead.

“Covert Affairs” (10 p.m., USA). Annie enlists an ex-spy (Eriq La Salle) to help stop a Sudanese arms shipment. And that perks up the ears of her mysterious ex, Ben. Gregory Itzin (President Logan from “24”) also guest-stars.

“Louie” (11 p.m., FX). Louie has a strange encounter with a neighbor. Hilarity ensues.

Record it

“Swords: Life on the Line” (9 p.m., Discovery). Season premiere. The fishermen are back, but it just doesn’t have the characters or drama that “Deadliest Catch” does.

“Warehouse 13” (9 p.m., Syfy). Tia Carrere guest-stars as Pete’s ex, and she’s a threat to learn his secrets.

“Chopped” (10 p.m., Food Network). Four female chefs compete with ingredients including kabocha squash and sardines.

“If You Really Knew Me” (11 p.m., MTV). A student’s death forces an Oklahoma City high school to take a deep, hard look at its cliquish rivalries.

Catch a score

Giants vs. Cubs (7 p.m., NBC-11). Tim Lincecum takes the mound. Grateful Dead Night was yesterday; so many pot jokes squandered.


“Minute to Win It” (10 p.m., NBC). Oops, I said last week this rerun would be pre-empted by the Giants. Actually it’ll air after the game. So, Guy Fieri fans, go for it.

Skip it

“Flipping Out” (9 p.m., Bravo). Season premiere. Oh awesome, a show glorifying house-flipping. Housing bust? What housing bust?
