TONIGHT’S MUST-SEE: “Hawaii Five-0” season-finale, 9 p.m.,
Nick Jonas seems like such a pleasant chap when he’s with
the pop-idol Jonas Brothers; now he returns as Ian Wright, evil genius. The
daughter of Grover (Chi McBride) has been kidnapped; to get him back, Wright
says, Grover must help steal $100 million.
And there’s another villain on the way, to wrap up this fourth
season. Wo Fat has escaped.
TONIGHT’S MIGHT-SEE: “24,” 8-10 p.m., Fox.
If you missed the opener, here’s a second chance before the
next episode Monday. With one exception – the show runs only 12 hours – this edition
is pure “24”: A world-changing story takes place in one day; it’s wildly improbable,
yet immensely riveting.
Jack Bauer has been on the run for four years. Suddenly,
violently, he surfaces in London, just as the president (William Devane)
arrives with his daughter (Kim Raver), Jack’s ex-lover. A suspicious CIA agent
(Yvonne Strahavski of “Chuck”) may be Jack’s equal.
TONIGHT’S ALTERNATIVE: “Whose Line Is It Anyway?” 8 p.m.,
CMT; “Key & Peele,” 9-10:30 p.m., Comedy Central.
Over the past two years, Keenan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele
have injected TV with fresh wit. Their humor – sometimes racial and often very
clever – works wonderfully in sketches and beyond.
In a new “Line” tonight, Key has his second guest stop. Then
(after a “Line” rerun at 8:30), switch to cable for three reruns of the duo.
And at 11:30, catch a “Playing House” rerun; Key is a regular as Mark.
Other choices include:
“Traffic” (2000), 5:45 p.m., Sundance; or “Training Day”
(2001), 8 p.m., TNT. It’s an Oscar-winners night. In “Day,” Denzel Washington –
usually the good guy – won for playing a corrupt cop; “Traffic” won for director
Steven Soderbergh and supporting actor Benicio Del Toro, plus its editing and
“Unforgettable,” 8 p.m., CBS. Why do fictional versions of
high school reunions so often include murder? Aren’t most real reunions
murder-free? Anyway, that happens again, this time when Carrie goes back home.
Since she remembers every detail of her life, she has lots to ponder in
figuring what happened.
Movies, 8 p.m., cable. You can choose just about any genre –
action (Paul Walker’s 2001 “Fast and the Furious” on Bravo), animation (“Tangled,”
2010, on Disney), broad comedy (“Anchorman,” 2004, on TBS or “Bad Teacher,”
2011, on FX) or just cute (“Puppy Love,” 2012, on Hallmark).
“Grimm,” 9 p.m., NBC. A double-murder case leads to more: A
father-and-son duo has arrived, with an important artifact to deliver to “the
“Blue Bloods” season-finale, 10 p.m., CBS. After probing a
case he was supposed to ignore, Danny (Donnie Wahlberg) is confined to modified
duty. Suspecting a cover-up, he goes to his dad (Tom Selleck), the police commissioner;
they may be onto something big.
“Hannibal,” 10:01 p.m., NBC. Jack and his team learn the
truth about Freddie Lounds’ disappearance. Also, Alana worries about Will’s
mental health; Mason Verger worries that his sister will usurp him.
