On TV this Tuesday: An NCIS duo disappears, Go On reunites two sketchy guys from Studio 60, Hart of Dixie hosts a’70s star and CBS’ Golden Boy starts gleaming. As a supplement to TVLine’s original features (linked within), here are 10 programs to keep on your radar.
8 pm Hart of Dixie (The CW) | Zoe agrees to be Wanda’s maid of honor, a tough gig that involves monitoring Wanda’s crafty mom (played by Debra Jo Rupp, That ’70s Show). But even with her hands full, the good doc knows that something’s off between her and Wade. Hmm….
8 pm Celebrity Wife Swap (ABC) | Season 2 premiere: Kate Gosselin (Kate Plus 8) and Kendra Wilkinson (Kendra) trade lives (and mommy duties) for a week. (Kendra, honey, you definitely got the short end of the swap-stick in that deal.)
8 pm NCIS (CBS) | Where in the world are Ducky and Jimmy? After the duo disappears — almost Dr. Daniel Westin-style! — while transporting a body from a crime scene, Gibbs’ team leaps into action.
9 pm Cult (The CW) | While a producer brushes off Skye’s concerns that some Cult fans believe there are hidden messages embedded in the program, on the show-within-a-show, Kelly (Alona Tal) and her partner think an oddly buried body might be a message from Billy.
9 pm New Girl (Fox) | Nick and Schmidt argue over the planning of their “TinFinity” party celebrating a decade of living together. Steve Howey (Shameless) guests as a football pro who catches Jess’ eye.
9 pm Go On (NBC) | Matthew Perry’s Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip partner in crime, Bradley Whitford, guest-stars as a sad bachelor pal of Ryan’s who inadvertently prompts the radio host to ask Simone to move in with him.
10 pm Golden Boy (CBS) | Series premiere: Theo James (Downton Abbey) stars as Walter William Clark, Jr., whose rise to becoming the youngest police commissioner in NYPD history is told in flashback – starting with his promotion to homicide detective. Chi McBride (Pushing Daisies) co-stars as Clark partner while Kevin Alejandro (True Blood) is the division’s resident hot shot. Greg Berlanti (Brothers & Sisters) and Nicholas Wootton (Chuck) executive-produce. (Read our First Impression and watch a sneak peek.)
10 pm Body of Proof (ABC) | As the second half of the season opener unfolds, there’s news both good – Megan learns how one of their prime suspects figures in the case at hand – and terrifying, seeing as she can’t say anything, because the killer has kidnapped Lacey and is threatening her life.
10 pm White Collar (USA Network) | Peter and Neal get closer to solving the mystery of Ellen’s evidence box (but take a detour through the world of sculpture forgery).
10 pm Cougar Town (TBS) | Jules’ “naked day” with Grayson turns out to be anything but sexy; Laurie and Wade decide to move in together.
