What to watch on Tuesday, June 25...


8pm, Fox
So You Think You Can Dance
The top 20 contestants turn their heads your way and won’t skip romance, ‘cause they’re old enough to dance the night away. Dance, dance, dance the night away.


8pm, ABC Family
Pretty Little Liars
Call me a child of the ‘90s, but when you say “creepy mask maker,” I immediately figure that’s the latest profession for Are You Afraid of the Dark’s Sardo (no “Mister,” accent on the “-do”). The girls are lead to such a craftsman by a clue amid Ali’s possessions in “Cat’s Cradle.” Closer to home, Hanna turns to Det. Holbrook for help protecting her mother, but it’s Emily’s mom who A sets her sights on next.


MID-SEASON RETURN, 8:30pm, NBC
Betty White’s Off Their Rockers
Go forth, wizened acolytes of the trickster gods! Pay tribute to Loki by blowing bubbles ‘pon passers-by and boogying down on arcade dance games! Bamboozle your communities with bad movie reviews, in the name of Dolos and Èṣù! Follow your earthly leader, Betty White, and wreak havoc in grocery store aisles! Let your network-TV-friendly mischief reign supreme!


9pm, ABC Family
Twisted
“PSA de Résistance” finds Jo hoping to become more social by joining the school’s anti-drunk-driving skit, because nothing boosts one’s high school popularity like combining the roles of “theater geek” and “narc.” On the “hey one of the kids on this show might’ve cold-murdered a person” front, Kyle has a bead on evidence that could incriminate Danny.


SEASON 4 PREMIERE, 9pm, TNT
Rizzoli & Isles
In “We Are Family,” a parade route leads... to murder. Also to familial turmoil, political skullduggery, and a really nifty float put together by the local Kiwanis Club. But mostly murder! Lt. Col. Casey Jones also drops by, with news bound to shock all who hear it.


SEASON 2 PREMIERE, 10pm, TNT
Perception
Pierce makes surprising discoveries when he assesses the mental competency of a man facing a murder retrial in “Ch-Ch-Changes.” (One of those discoveries: That Necessary Roughness beat Perception to the season-premiere-title punch like two weeks ago.) Complicating the case further, the prosecutor (Scott Wolf) is about to become Moretti’s ex-husband.


SEASON 2 PREMIERE, 10pm, MTV
Catfish
Nev and Max return to guide more online acquaintances through the treacherous waters known as “IRL.” The season opens with a woman enlisting the duo for help meeting her betrothed.


10pm, PBS
Frontline
“Rape in the Fields” spotlights the persistent danger of rape and sexual assault plaguing immigrant women working on farms, in factories, and elsewhere in America. Lowell Bergman reports.


10:30pm, Comedy Central
Inside Amy Schumer
This week, Amy “conjures Dave Attell,” who has got to be the oddest patronus on record. In other behavior of “Terrible People,” Amy dons a catsuit and deceives her way out of a charity shindig.
