“Terriers” (10 p.m., FX). Series premiere. From the people who brought you “The Shield” and “Ocean’s 11,” here comes a new dramedy about a pair of low-rent private eyes. Always-affable Donal Logue stars. This has the potential to be one of the best new shows of the fall. Tonight the guys try to track down the missing daughter of an old friend.
“The Colbert Report” (11:30 p.m., Comedy Central). A very special episode dedicated to U.S. troops returning from Iraq, with guests Vice President Joe Biden and Gen. Raymond Odierno.
“America’s Next Top Model” (8 p.m., The CW). Season premiere. Crazy Tyra Banks is back for a 15th season. This time, things kick off at a swanky party in Palm Springs.
“Changing Lanes” (8 p.m., BET). Time trials weed out the remaining drivers until there are just 10 left.
“Man vs. Wild” (9 p.m., Discovery). Bear brings along two lucky(?) fans to survive in the Canadian wilderness. Good call to bring two fans — more for Bear to eat in case things get hairy.
“Surviving the Cut” (10 p.m., Discovery). Special ops soldiers train in severe underwater conditions to become combat divers. Oooh, hope they get spear guns, like in James Bond movies.
“Hard Knocks” (10 p.m., HBO). Final cuts are made and the Jets end training camp in the season finale. Let’s see how many f-bombs Rex Ryan drops this week. The over/under is six. (Take the over.)
“Psych” (10 p.m., USA). The guys try to help a falsely accused spy prove her innocence in the mid-season finale.
“Top Chef” (10 p.m., Bravo). Part 1 of the season finale from Singapore. My favorite chef got eliminated last week, and I’ve been spoiled as to which one of the remaining four doesn’t win, so I don’t care very much any more. But I’ll watch just to see how much Ed can flop sweat in the tropical heat. (Manual recorders beware: It’s a 75-minute episode.)
“Hellcats” (9 p.m. The CW). Series premiere. A new soapy drama about a broke pre-law student who has to make it on the college cheerleading squad full of mean girls (led by Ashley Tisdale) to get a scholarship and stay in school. It looks terrible, to the point where it could be unintentionally hilarious.
