It’s back! As “Game of Thrones” (9 p.m., HBO) kicks off its third season, Daenerys continues her quest for a ship, and Jon Snow finally meets the legendary Mance Ryder. But my favorite part of the show: Peter Dinklage’s portrayal of Tyrion Lannister.
If you’re a fan of “The Voice” (7 p.m., NBC), you might want to clear some space on your DVR. The singing competition airs repeats of last week’s fourth-season premiere tonight, with new episodes at 8 p.m. Monday and Tuesday, for a total of six hours. Whew.
Alicia once again defends creepy killer Colin Sweeney on “The Good Wife” (9 p.m., CBS).
Murder followed Richard Castle on vacation, so why shouldn’t it also follow him to his home? In a plot that will be familiar to any Hitchcock fans (or, for that matter, those who’ve seen “Disturbia”), on “Castle” (10 p.m., ABC), the writer witnesses a killing while confined to his home with a broken leg.
Two crime dramas whose futures seem a little shaky air new episodes tonight. On “Golden Boy” (10 p.m., CBS), bullets link a shooting to the death of McKenzie’s brother. On “Body of Proof” (10 p.m., ABC), Megan works with the new health commissioner following a couple of rabies fatalities.
ABC’s comedies are all new tonight, culminating with the debut of “How to Live with Your Parents (For the Rest of Your Life)” (9:30 p.m.) starring Sarah Chalke as a single mom forced to move home with her freespirited parents.
Before “How to Live With Your Parents,” Frankie is saddened by a reality show’s finale on “The Middle” (8 p.m.); a “Dads of Chatswin” calendar has George fixated on his body on “Suburgatory” (8:30 p.m.); and the Dunphys get a glimpse of their future on “Modern Family” (9 p.m.).
There’s a lot to laugh about as a bunch of new comedies air tonight. The guys compete for a tenured professorship on “The Big Bang Theory” (8 p.m., CBS); Jess and Nick go on a date on “New Girl” (9 p.m., Fox); and Leslie and Ben travel to his hometown on “Parks and Recreation” (8:30 p.m., NBC). There are also new episodes of “The Mindy Project” (9:30 p.m., Fox), “Community” (8 p.m., NBC), “The Office” (9 p.m., NBC) and “Go On” (9:30 p.m., NBC). And yes, I deliberately left off “Two and a Half Men” from the list, but if you’re a fan, it’s new, too.
