New series “Crossing Lines” (9 p.m., NBC) stars William Fichtner as a former police officer who joins in the global search for a serial killer.
“Mad Men” (9 p.m., AMC) ends for the season.
Lifetime brings back “Drop Dead Diva” (9 p.m.), before premiering new series “Devious Maids.” (Title kinda says it all.)
Bristol Palin and Melissa Rivers trade families in the season premiere of “Celebrity Wife Swap” (8 p.m., ABC). It’s followed by “Whodunnit?” (9 p.m.), a reality show wrapped around a murder mystery.
Unless you’ve been living in a bubble, you probably know about tonight’s big premiere: The miniseries “Under the Dome” (10 p.m., CBS), about a small town trapped when a mysterious dome cuts it off from the rest of the world. Based on a novel by Stephen King, it’s slated for 13 episodes, but if it does well, who knows? Maybe it will be back.
As “Rizzoli & Isles” (9 p.m., TNT) returns, a state senator has been assassinated. Following, “Perception” kicks off its second season.
Another show returning tonight: “Catfish” (10 p.m., MTV). Bring on the fake Internet romances and the people who inexplicably believe they are real.
If “Catfish” isn’t voyeuristic enough for you, then you should welcome the return of that summer staple, “Big Brother” (8 p.m., CBS), which takes over the network’s schedule with three episodes a week.
Sitcom “How to Live With Your Parents (For the Rest of Your Life)” (9:30 p.m., ABC) ends its short run.
The canceled “Cult” (8 p.m., The CW) begins burning off its final episodes with tonight’s double-header.
A movie about the tragic and overexposed playmate “Anna Nicole” (8 p.m., Lifetime) airs tonight. As if you needed another reason to go out or clean out your DVR.
NBC begins burning off episodes of “Do No Harm” (10 p.m.), which will either bring closure to its few fans or annoy viewers who get hooked this time around without realizing it’s already been canceled.
