The Big Bang Theory (CBS): Repeat. “The Escape Hatch Identification” episode from this past season replays, where Leonard and Penny offer Raj a place to stay after he loses his apartment. Runs 31 minutes.

Nashville (CMT): New. Maddie has to deal with some things. Deacon and Avery agree on Hallie’s sound. Zach puts his influence on Highway 65. Runs 62 minutes. Plays twice.

The Mist (Spike): Series Premiere. A small town is slowly overrun by a mysterious mist that people to start losing it. Based on The Mist by Stephen King. Runs 65 minutes. Plays twice. I’ve seen tonight’s premiere and it is really good. It sets up the major players in the town and their conflicts well while creating a very spooky vibe with the mist slowly overtaking the town. I’m not usually one for this kind of genre, but this one hooked me and is being added to my summer schedule. Will you be watching tonight?
