On TV this Tuesday: Deadliest Catch pulls up its nets, White Collar’s Neal keeps Peter on the trail of a very elusive criminal, Glee Project learns “the show must go on” and The Godfather Legacy hopes that your first child is a masculine child. As a supplement to TVLine’s original features, linked within, here are nine programs to look out for tonight.
8 pm Deadliest Catch (Discovery) | Season 8 of the fish-for-your-life unscripted drama is drawing to a close, but no need to get crabby: After the two-hour finale, in which a veteran deckhand makes a terrible mistake, stick around to preview what’s ahead in After the Catch at 10/9c.
8 pm Pretty Little Liars (ABC Family) | The Liars ask Mona to help Hanna.
9 pm The Godfather Legacy (History) | The History Channel’s making you an offer you can’t refuse: a two-hour documentary about Francis Ford Coppola’s iconic films – including interviews with Al Pacino, James Caan, Joe Mantegna and Talia Shire – narrated by The Sopranos’ Michael Imperioli. Of course, there’ll be plenty of scenes from the Oscar-winning trilogy in the mix, as well.
9 pm The L.A. Complex (The CW) | Abby’s attempts to portray herself as a good Christian girl go straight to hell on her first day on the Saving Grace set.
9 pm Jane By Design (ABC Family) | Cheerio! Jane travels to London to retrieve Jeremy and save Donovan Decker’s business deal with Harrods.
9 pm White Collar (USA Network) | Though reassigned Peter is now toiling in a most unsexy FBI division dubbed “The Cage,” Neal nonetheless arranges for him to surreptitiously help investigate a thief who has avoided capture for a long time. (Please, I used to lived in Boston: Unless this guy’s been on the lam for 16 years and gets caught at age 81 with his girlfriend, he’s a piddling amateur in my book.)
10 pm Love in the Wild (NBC) | In the Season 2 finale, the two remaining couples set out on their last challenge: an overnight quest. If you’re behind on the boobtastic competition (or if you just want a quick laugh), check out TVLine’s photo recaps before tonight’s winning couple is announced.
10 pm The Glee Project (Oxygen) | As the wanna-Glees this week marshal their inner toughness while working on “Eye of the Tiger,” “The theme is tenacity,” mentor Amber Riley tells TVLine. “And that is a crucial quality for any of the Glee cast members because, as you know, the show must go on. We work a lot of hours and it takes a lot of gusto to keep it going.” Especially when drenched in Slushie.
10 pm Franklin & Bash (TNT) | The Secret Life of the American Teenager’s Anne Ramsay guest-stars as a widow trying to block her late husband’s corpse from becoming part of an exhibit about the human body. Also, an old college friend catches Hanna’s eye.
