TONIGHT'S MUST-SEE: “Blue Bloods,”
9 and 10 p.m., CBS.
This solid show usually focuses on the
men, especially Danny (Donnie Wahlberg), the police detective whose
dad (Tom Selleck) is police commissioner. Tonight's reruns, however,
follow the women.
In the first one, Jackie (Jennifer
Esposito), Danny's police partner, goes undercover; Erin (Bridget
Moynihan), his sisteer and an assistant district attorney, meets a
guy who shares her interests. In the second, she blames herself for
an informant's death and wants Danny's help finding the killer.
TONIGHT'S MIGHT-SEE: “Bones,” 8
TV's new goal, it seems, is to put
smart women undercover in the physical world of roller derby.
Last Friday, it was Catherine (Michelle
Borth) in “Hawaii Five-0”; tonight, it's Angela (Michael Conlin).
She's there after the discovery of a skater's dismembered remains.
TONIGHT'S ALTERNATIVE: “The Perfect
Boyfriend,” 8 p.m., Lifetime Movie Network (and more).
April (Ashley Scott of “Jericho”)
is newly divorced when she meets a guy who has looks, charm and
money. He's perfect … or so the title says.
This new film is surrounded by reruns,
each with “perfect” in the titles and imperfection at the core.
Dean Cain is convincingly creepy in “The Perfect Husband: The Laci
Peterson Story” (2004) at 10 a.m.. Then come the “perfect”
bride (1991) at noon, spouse (2003) at 2 p.m., marriage (2006) at 4
and wife at 6. “Boyfried” is at 8, with “The Perfect Roommate”
at 10. By then, we'll be wary of perfection.
TONIGHT'S ALTERNATIVE II: “Magic
City,” 9 p.m., to midnight, Starz.
The season's first three episodes of
this well-crafted series rerun, with new ones resuming next week.
In late-1950s Miami, Ike has worked his
way up from cabana boy to hotel co-owner. But his silent partner is
the brutal Ben Diamond, who has already had Ike's friend killed. Ben
wants to sweep Ike out and make a fortune if gambling is legalized;
he would kill Ike, if his boss (James Caan) let him.
And Ike? He's in jail on a murder
charge now, but his goal is to get control of casinos in Castro's
Cuba. It's a jolting ride, as you'll see in these three hours.
Other choices include:

– “Siberia,” 8 p.m., NBC. Her's a

1908 meteor landing in Siberia.

Performance,” 9-10:30 p.m., PBS (check local listings). This was
