On TV this Monday: Kate Mulgrew finds herself inside Warehouse 13 again, Frances Sternhagen and Barry Corbin return to The Closer, Michelle takes charge of the Bunheads and an HBO documentary sizes up supermodels. Here are nine programs to watch tonight.
8 pm 2012 Summer Olympics (NBC) | On tap for tonight, you’ve got men’s and women’s swimming finals, men’s synchronized diving, U.S. beach volleyball and men’s gymnastics.
8 pm 90210 (The CW) | In this Repeat to (possibly) Revisit, the gang visits Sin City, where Naomi meets Austin’s dad (played by guest-star Billy Ray Cyrus) and the guys run into Jersey Shore’s Vinny Guadagnino.
8 pm The Secret Life of the American Teenager (ABC Family) | Kathy’s new friends are a bad influence.
9 pm Bunheads (ABC Family) | Michelle suspects one of the girls is a liar and a thief. (Well, at least she’s in good company.) Scooplet! Sutton Foster tells us this is the episode where Michelle officially becomes the Bunheads’ teacher.
9 pm About Face: Supermodels Then and Now (HBO) | This documentary about walking clothes hangers through the years — think of if as America’s First Top Models — includes interviews with the likes of Carol Alt, Christie Brinkley, Jerry Hall, Beverly Johnson, Paulina Porizkova, Isabella Rossellini and Cheryl Tiegs.

9 pm Warehouse 13 (Syfy) | Kate Mulgrew (Star Trek: Voyager) returns as Jane Lattimer when Pete and Myka investigate a case of mass hallucinations. I think I can help clear this up, Pete and Myka: Surreal though it was (giant baby head, parachuting queen, multiple Mary Poppins), the Olympic opening ceremony actually happened.
10 pm Perception (TNT) | Cary Elwes (Leverage, Psych) continues his tour of cable-TV dramas when he and Justified’s Neal McDonough guest-star on this freshman series.
10 pm Teen Wolf (MTV) | Scott, Stiles, Melissa and Sheriff Stilinski are being held hostage at the sheriff’s department — so what’s gonna happen when Allison tracks Derek there?
