1) “Press Your Luck” season-opener, 10 p.m., ABC. Elizabeth Banks (shown here) has become an all-around talent. She was a comedy actress, from “The 40-Year-Old Virgin” to regular roles in “30 Rock” and “Modern Family.” Then she was a movie director — “Pitch Perfect 2,” the gorgeous “Charlie’s Angels” reboot, the surprise hit “Cocaine Bear” — and a game-show host. Her “Press Your Luck” ran for four summers on ABC, before it was nudged into the fall schedule.
2) “Frontline,” 9-11 p.m., PBS. Here’s an in-depth look at one of the year’s biggest developments. “Elon Musk’s Twitter Takeover” views Musk’s combative relationship with Twitter, before he bought it and renamed it X. It also views free-speech issues and the company’s post-takeover techroubles.
3) “The Swarm,” 9 p.m., CW. This hour starts slowly – three minutes with no dialog – and ends powerfully. Scientists start to realize something has disrupted the seas; there are killer crabs, wild whales, new species. “Swarm” does use a cop-show cliché – the boss who dismisses information. Set that aside and you have a sharply written, beautifully acted (especially by Leonie Benesch as Charlie) fifth episode of an eight-part drama.
4) “FBI True,” 9 p.m., CBS. This hour looks back at two cases, one urban and one rural. In 2016, a homemade bomb injured 30 people and other bombs were discovered across Manhattan and New Jersey; a massive manhunt began. In 2013, a man kidnapped Hannah Anderson, 16, after killing her parents. A rescue mission plunged into the Idaho wilderness, ending in a shoot-out.
5) “Found,” 10 p.m., NBC. Last week’s opener, already overwrought, ended with a despicable twist: We learned that Gabi, who searches for missing people the public ignores, keeps her own former captor locked in her basement. This second episode has a fairly interesting case, with s few surprises. However, it also keeps returning to that captor/captive, a repugnant addition to a so-so series.
