“American Idol” (8 p.m., Fox). Auditions from San Francisco. Hey, they can’t be any worse than L.A. last week. Of local note, Sonoma’s Carmina Salcido will be one of the featured singers, and she’s got a pretty compelling story.
“Modern Family” (9 p.m., ABC). It’s Valentine’s Day, and Phil and Claire assume their sexy alter egos, Clive and Juliana. Meanwhile, Jay’s has problems with Gloria’s surprise gift.
“Mr. Sunshine” (9:30 p.m., ABC). Series premiere. Matthew Perry stars as a gloomy, bitter guy running a San Diego sports arena. Alison Janney is his wacky boss and Andrea Anders (“Better Off Ted”) is the cute-as-a-button voice of reason in the office. Doesn’t look like anything that’ll make you forget “Cougar Town,” but it might be OK. Hope it’s better than “Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip,” at least.
“Justified” (10 p.m., FX). Season premiere. Yep, I’m looking forward to this more than this week’s episode of “Top Chef.” I’ve missed Timothy Olyphant’s steely glare. U.S. Marshall Raylan Givens is back for a second season fighting crime in rural Kentucky. This was one of my favorite new series last year, and the new season looks like it won’t miss a beat. Tonight introduces a new bad guy — err, gal — Mags Bennett, the Ma Beagle-like matriarch of a crime family that tries to fill the vacuum created after Raylan took down the Crowder clan last season. Raylan, meanwhile, is having an affair with his ex-wife and his frenemy Boyd Crowder is still skulking around. Should be awesome.
I love this Han Solo trailer:
“Human Target” (9 p.m., Fox). Wow, it’s the season finale already. Might be the series finale too, since the addition of a couple of new cast members didn’t do much to improve the show. I actually think it got worse in its second season — it lost some of the cleverness it showed early on. Tonight Chance finds out bad things about Ilsa’s dead husband.
“Top Chef All-Stars” (10 p.m., Bravo). The remaining cheftestants cater Jimmy Fallon’s birthday party. Now that’s some NBC Universal synergy!
“Nova” (10 p.m., PBS). A profile of “The Smartest Machine on Earth”: Watson, an IBM computer built to crush human brains. Oh, I should say, crush human brains at “Jeopardy.” This is basically a behind-the-scenes preview of next week’s “Jeopardy,” which will pit Watson against human competitors for three nights in a row. Should be a revealing look at the artificial intelligence behind our soon-to-be robot masters.
“Minute to Win It” (8 and 9 p.m., NBC). Yes, two hours of this. Just goes to show you what a programming morass NBC is stuck in.
“Live to Dance” (8 p.m., CBS). It’s the season finale, and a winner is revealed. But come on, you haven’t been watching all this time, have you?
