Season 21 premiere, 8 p.m., CBS


Survivor is celebrating its 21st birthday in Nicaragua—with a bunch of “old” people, including former Dallas Cowboys coach Jimmy Johnson! In the season premiere, the 20 new castaways are divided into tribes according to their ages; one tribe will be under 30, and another will be over 40.

Season 12 finale, 9 p.m., CBS

Big Brother

Which of the 3 remaining houseguests (and Brigade members) will walk away with $500,000? Cross your fingers for Hayden—Enzo floated by with his big Italian personality and Lane doesn’t even act like he needs the money.

Season 2 finale, 9 & 10 p.m., TNT

Dark Blue

In the last two episodes of the season, the team goes undercover to investigate two drug-smuggling brothers, Dean (Logan Marshall-Green) asks Jaimie (Nicki Lynn Aycox) out on a real date, Alex (Tricia Helfer) considers taking a job in Miami, and Ty (Omari Hardwick) mulls over his divorce.

Series premiere, 10 p.m., NBC


Jimmy Smits is back on TV! The former NYPD Blue and The West Wing star now stars as Cyrus Garza, a Supreme Court Justice who decides to step down from his post and pursue a private law practice.

Series premiere, 11 p.m., BRAVO

Top Chef: Just Desserts

What’s better than a reality show about chefs? Try a reality show about pastry chefs! Gail Simmons hosts this new competition, which tasks 12 contestants with finding the sweet teeth of judges Johnny Iuzzini, Hubert Keller, and Dannielle Kyrillos. (Don’t forget to tune in early to find out who won Top Chef!)

11 p.m., COMEDY

Jon Stewart welcomes Jon Hamm. It’s a Jon sandwich with a little Hamm thrown in.

    Maybe the Daily Show and Colbert, but I hate how the Comedy Network in Canada moved them up to 10:00 and 10:30. I'm always in the middle of reading something for my class the next day.

    Nothing for me. I can't wait until most of my shows return next week.

    I have no interest in these shows. I'll probably watch repeats of The Middle, Modern Family and Castle.
