“No Ordinary Family” (8 p.m., ABC). Series premiere. A new series about a family that develop superpowers after a plane crash. Michael Chiklis (“The Shield”) and Julie Benz (“Dexter”) star. It sounds pretty family-friendly, which is a rarity for a network action series.
“Sons of Anarchy” (10 p.m., FX). Jax and Clay head for Vancouver looking for Abel, and Gemma slips away to finish business with her father (Hal Holbrook, who’s sealing up a guest-actor Emmy nomination).
“Baseball: The 10th Inning” (8 p.m., PBS). Part 1 of Ken Burns’ follow-up to his 1994 miniseries. This one follows baseball through the 1994 lockout, Cal Ripken’s streak, Sosa vs. McGwire and the whole steroid era (including, cough cough, a certain former Giants left fielder), and brings us up to the present. Part 2 airs tomorrow. Like all Burns productions, I’m sure it’ll be very good, but may be sleep-inducing.
“Glee” (8 p.m., Fox). It’s the Britney Spears episode. Sigh.
“30 for 30” (8 p.m., ESPN2). I remember before the Vancouver Olympics there were rumors that Terry Fox’s family would light the torch. And I thought: Who’s Terry Fox? Find out tonight, with a profile of the inspiring amputee from British Columbia who attempted to run across Canada in 1980 to raise cancer awareness. NBA star and Canadian Steve Nash was the driving force behind this installment.
“Inside the Actors Studio” (8 p.m., Bravo). Tonight’s guest: Betty White. So if you’re not sick of her yet . . . .
“Raising Hope” (9 p.m., Fox). Jimmy needs to find a babysitter. You know, the pilot was funny, but the child-endangerment plot of the week could get old fast. Let’s hope they get creative.
“Parenthood” (10 p.m., NBC). Sarah’s co-worker offers advice on her daughter, and Julia wants another baby. Hmmm, this is really the anti-“Raising Hope.”
“The Good Wife” (10 p.m., ABC). Season premiere. Alicia has to choose between her husband and his campaign or running off with Will. (Hint: Read the title of the show.)
“Chopped” (10 p.m., Food Network). It’s time to crown the champions’ champion, as the four winners vie for $50,000.
“Running Wilde” (9:30 p.m., Fox). The pilot was awful. I’m skipping it for a few weeks and will come back and see if it’s any better. Tonight, David Cross’ character is introduced, so that’s a good start.
“Detroit 1-8-7” (10 p.m., ABC). It’s so very unremarkable.
