What to watch on Monday, September 16...


7pm, Cartoon Network
Adventure Time
Plagued by somnambulism and dreams of the Green Lady, Finn must access his repressed memories with the help of Jake and BMO in “The Vault.” Then, “Candy Streets” finds the duo scouring the Candy Kingdom for LSP’s missing mystery possession.


SEASON 17 PREMIERE, 8pm, ABC
Dancing With The Stars
A dozen new celebs pair up with professionals to cut a competitive rug (though only for one day a week this season). The latest lineup includes Elizabeth Berkley Lauren, Corbin Bleu, Valerie Harper, Keyshawn Johnson, Science Guy Bill Nye, Snooki, and Amber Riley.


SEASON 9 PREMIERE, 8pm, Fox
Bones
In “The Secrets in the Proposal,” the murder of a Foggy Bottom bean-counter draws attention not only from the Jeffersonian team, but also from a CIA agent/erstwhile Army buddy of Booth’s. On the relationship front, Brennan contemplates her future with Booth while Booth seeks the counsel of another old friend, a former clergyman.


SERIES PREMIERE, 9pm, Fox
Sleepy Hollow
Undaunted by the barriers separating fiction from reality or one point on the time/space continuum from another—barriers which some might say preserve our ever-tenuous construct of reality, and without which all and sundry would tumble speedily into entropic metaphysical chaos, but whatevs—Ichabod Crane and the Headless Horseman appear in the present-day hamlet of Sleepy Hollow. One of them wreaks havoc, and the other partners with a local cop to fight supernatural crimes. I’ll leave you to deduce which is which.


SEASON 2 FINALE, 9pm, The CW
Breaking Pointe
Now that the show has closed, the dancers decamp to L.A. for a fundraiser in “The Story of Us.” As Ian departs the company, Christiana and Christopher grapple with their future, and a saucy number lights a spark between Allison and Rex.


SEASON 1 FINALE, 10pm, CBS
Under the Dome
Will it be “Curtains” for Barbie? It will if Big Jim gets his way—but I’m betting Les Moonves, who wants this thing to run for like nine seasons, has other thoughts about scotching a main character at the end of Season 1. Meanwhile, Dome details are divulged; and Junior, Angie, Joe, and Norrie are visited by an old acquaintance, shedding light on the Monarch’s quarry.


SEASON 1 FINALE, 10pm, NBC
Siberia
“...Into the Oven” finds the contestants reuniting at the research station. But the merriment and catching-up anecdotes are short-lived when it turns out one of their compatriots is still stuck in a tight spot, and the arriving rescue party may be more nefarious than it seems.


10pm, TCM
The Story of Film: An Odyssey
“1918–1932: The Great Rebel Filmmakers Around the World” expands the series’ scope to cover the golden age of cinema around the world. Featured directors include Alfred Hitchcock, Ernst Lubitsch, and Sergei Eisenstein, among others.
