On TV this Monday: One of your favorites is back, no Bones about it. Plus, Revolution and Mob Doctor make their debuts, the CMA Music Festival packs a whole lotta yee-haw into a couple of hours and ER’s Laura Innes checks Warehouse 13′s vitals. Here are 10 programs to watch out for tonight.
8 pm Bones (Fox) | Season 8 premiere: While accused murderer Brennan remains on the lam, Booth and the Jeffersonian team work to prove that Pelant manipulated evidence in the case against her. For a sneak peek before the episode, check out TVLine’s bountiful Bones premiere preview, watch clips and check out photos.
8 pm CMA Music Festival: Country’s Night to Rock (ABC) | New American Idol judge Keith Urban, Faith Hill, Martina McBride, Brad Paisley, Zac Brown Band, Carrie Underwood and many others perform at the three-hour annual love letter to country music. Luke Bryan and The Band Perry’s Kimberly Perry host.
8 pm The L.A. Complex (The CW) | Back-to-back episodes: Sabrina follows Nick’s urging and makes a confession that changes everything; a phone call knocks Kal down just as he’s starting to feel good again.
8 pm Switched at Birth (ABC Family) | Daphne fears the worst after she causes an accident at the restaurant, and Bay uses Angelo to get around John’s rules.
9 pm The Mob Doctor (Fox) | Series premiere: Jordana Spiro (My Boys) stars as a conflicted woman who tries to reconcile her work as a Chicago surgeon with her super-shady role as a medic to the Mob. William Forsythe (Boardwalk Empire), Zach Gilford (Friday Night Lights) and Zeljko Ivanek (Damages) are among the ensemble. Check out our prognosis for the new drama here.
9 pm Warehouse 13 (Syfy) | ER’s Laura Innes guest-stars as Steve’s estranged mom, who may be the key to helping him and Claudia avert an artifact-related crisis. Meanwhile, The Game’s Pooch Hall shows up as “Cody Bell” (heh), a boxer who goes round for round with Pete, who’s trying to figure out why people are rusting from the inside out.
9 pm Major Crimes (TNT) | A fatal shooting in gang territory pushes Raydor to make a move that puts Det. Sykes in harm’s way; Rusty doesn’t want to meet his biological dad.
10 pm Revolution (NBC) | Series premiere: Fifteen years after a global blackout, a group of survivors set off to evade an oppressive militia. Being Human’s Tracy Spiridakos plays the daughter of a dead man who knew why the power went out, The Closer’s Billy Burke is her MIA uncle and Lost’s Elizabeth Mitchell is her mom (who appears in flashbacks). Breaking Bad’s Giancarlo Esposito, meanwhile, plays a fierce militia captain. The project has serious geek cred behind the scenes, too: Jon Favreau (Iron Man) directed the pilot, and he and J.J. Abrams (Lost), Eric Kripke (Supernatural) and Bryan Burk (Fringe) executive-produce. What did TVLine’s Matt Mitovich think of the first ep, you ask? Look no further.
10 pm Perception (TNT) | Season 1 finale: Moretti learns Pierce’s conspiracy theory may not be so cracked, thanks to some new online evidence; Pierce’s new doctor makes him face the truth about Natalie.
10:30 pm The Inbetweeners (MTV) | Simon and Will’s golf outing with Simon’s dad goes awry, and the guys help Will pursue Charlotte by bidding on her at an auction.
