Over on cable, MTV has the TV movie premiere of My Super Psycho Sweet 16 3 and Travel Channel has a Mysteries at the Museum special.

Tuesday night shows normally mentioned below but are either repeats or not on tonight are ABC’s Last Man Standing and CBS’ NCIS and NCIS: Los Angeles.

Prime Picks

Raising Hope (FOX): New. Sabrina helps Regina in her quest to get a raccoon out from under the porch. Hope seems to be acting out.
Cougar Town (ABC): New. The group decides that Bobby needs some help romancing Angie, guest star Sarah Chalke (Scrubs).

New Girl (FOX): New. Jess realizes that Schmidt does all the housework and tells him he should go on strike. Nick is trying to figure out how to pay Winston his poker winnings.
Breaking In (FOX): New. Veronica cancels the team’s annual job protecting a diamond-encrusted bra for a big party, so they hatch a plan to do it anyway and still do the job she wants them to do. This episode works very well in conjunction with last week’s premiere episode to fully introduce the new dynamic of the show.

Justified (FX): New. Raylan is after a Dixie Mafia soldier that may be able to help him take down Quarles. Ava is protecting a prostitute. Runs 61 minutes. Plays twice and again later. Last week’s episode, “Watching the Detectives,” replays in late night as well.

Solid Selections

Switched at Birth (ABC Family): New. Kathryn and Regina team up to find Angelo. Bay and Daphne work together to plan a birthday surprise for Emmett. Plays again later. The previous three episodes replay right before. Next week is the first season finale. I mistakenly marked last week’s episode of this show as the finale instead of Jane by Design, which was the midseason finale of that show.

The River (ABC): New. The crew of the Magnus is searching an abandoned research facility, or is it?

Southland (TNT): New. Ben sets out to help the daughter of a prostitute. Tang is faced with more questions about the shooting she was involved in. Plays again later.

Other Options

  • Ringer (The CW): New. Bridget can’t seem to get a hold of Malcolm. Juliet finds out what really happened to Tessa. Siohban confesses something to Henry.
