TONIGHT’S MIGHT-SEE: “24” finale rerun, 9 p.m., Fox.
Let’s credit Fox for livening the TV scene. It salvaged “24”
after a three-year break … squashed a saving-the-world story into 12 busy hours
(instead of 24) … and then gave it a rare spring-summer run.
Now it gives us one more chance to see the finale: This
started with a plot to seize American drones, creating tragedies in London and
nudging the world toward war. Jack Bauer tries to prevent this, aided by Kate,
the CIA agent; Chloe, the tech whiz; and Audrey, the president’s daughter.
TONIGHT’S MIGHT-SEE II: “Hawaii Five-0,” 9 p.m., CBS.
This rerun focuses on Chi McBride, who joined the show this
year as police Capt. Lou Grover.
His friend has disappeared, shortly after possibly
committing a double murder; McGarrett helps search for him. Meanwhile, Kono
(Grace Park) continues her search for Adam.
TONIGHT’S MUST-SEE: Movies, 8 p.m., cable.
A good night for Hollywood-style fun is led by “Men in Black”
(1997) on AMC, repeating at 10:01 p.m. Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones try to
control the outer-space aliens the government has captured.
There’s another comedy, with Mike Myers reviving his Austin
Powers character for “Goldmember” (2002) on VH1. And there’s “Transformers:
Dark of the Moon” (2011), a Michael Bay adventure with Shia LeBeouf joining a
race to salvage techno-wreckage on the moon.
Other choices include:
“MasterChef,” 8 p.m., Fox. In a rerun of Monday’s episode,
the 13 remaining chefs compete against the judges, cooking Alaskan king salmon.
Then each must prepare a dish using a judge’s favorite ingredient.
“CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,” 8 p.m., CBS. In this
rerun, a homeless man died after having a big winning streak in a small casino.
“Girl Meets World,” 8:30 p.m., Disney. This likable-enough
series finds Cory and Topanga (of “Boy Meets World”) married. Tonight, he frets
when their teen daughter would rather go to a dance than continue their annual
tradition of riding the Coney Island roller-coaster.
“The Mark Twain Prize,” 9-10:30 p.m., PBS (check local listings).
Here’s a rerun of the annual comedy prize, presented in 2010 to Tina Fey.
Presenters include other “Weekend Update” people (Jimmy Fallon, Amy Poehler,
Seth Meyers), their boss (Lorne Michaels) and more Fey colleagues from “Saturday
Night Live” (Tracy Morgan, Fred Armisen) and “30 Rock” (Alec Baldwin, Jane
Krakowski). Also, Steve Martin, Jon Hamm, Steve Carell, Jennifer Hudson and
Blue Bloods,” 10 p.m., CBS. When a young girl disappears
after school, Danny recalls a similar case he failed to solve, years ago. Also
in this rerun, his dad, the police commissioner, battles the inspector general (Bebe
Neuwirth) over a program that lets him oversee intelligence officers abroad.
“Crossbones,” 10:01 p.m., NBC. With few allies on this
pirate island, Lowe (the British spy) is in trouble. The danger builds when
Nenna plans an escape and Balfour makes a perilous alliance.
