1) “The Blacklist,” 10 p.m., NBC. Despite its late start, this slickly crafted show has a full, 22-episode season. That gives it two more episodes, borrowing Wednesdays this week and next. Tonight (after the Olympic swimming trials, from 8-10 p.m.) is a key one: Red takes Liz (they’re shown here in a previous episode) to the epicenter of his operations and offers some secrets about their shared past.
2) “The $100,000 Pyramid” season-opener, 9 p.m., ABC. Game shows, many of them classics, have become ABC’s summer strategy. This one goes back to 1973, when it was merely $10,000 and Dick Clark hosted; now it’s jumped 10-fold, with Michael Strahan hosting. That’s in an all-game night, with “Press Your Luck” at 8 and “Card Sharks” at 10. Thursdays and Sundays also have three-hour blocks.
3) “Card Sharks” season-opener. This is, apparently, Joel McHale night. First, he hosts the amiable “Crime Scene Kitchen” (9 p.m., Fox, after an 8 p.m. “MasterChef,” with Paula Deen as guest judge). Then he has this show, which goes back to 1978.
4) “Dave” season-opener, 10 and 10:38 p.m., FXX, rerunning at 11:19 and 11:7. This started as a gentle twist on the real life of David Burd, a Jewish suburbanite who used self-effacing humor to become a rap star named Lil Dicky. Now much has changed: The record label put Dave in a luxury apartment; he heads to Korea, to work with a K-Pop star … a problem, since he knows little about Korea and nothing about K-Pop. Here are two episodes, the first one filled with darkly funny twists.
5) “A Streetcar Named Desire” (1951), 8 p.m., Turner Classic Movies. One of the best-acted films in Hollywood history ripples with emotion. There were Academy Awards for Vivien Leigh and (in support) Kim Hunter and Karl Malden; Marlon Brando was nominated. Other nominations included best picture, director Elia Kazan, Tennessee Williams (adapting his brilliant play) and more.
