IAN HARDING, LUCY HALEOn TV this Tuesday: The Pretty Little Liars face a pretty big reveal, NCIS: Los Angeles has a ‘Red’-letter night, ABC Family gets Twisted, Tina Fey opens up a fresh season of Inside the Actors Studio and a New Girl catches Nick’s eye. As a supplement to TVLine’s original features (linked within), here are 10 programs to keep on your radar.

8 pm Pretty Little Liars (ABC Family) | Season 3 finale: Spencer is home and seems OK, but Aria, Hanna and Emily aren’t so sure – and then a shocking revelation takes their attention elsewhere. (Yep, ‘A’lready renewed.)

8 pm Inside the Actors Studio (Bravo) | Season 19 premiere: 30 Rock frontwoman/Saturday Night Live alum Tina Fey sits down with James Lipton and his blue cards. Fun tidbit: She reveals that SNL svengali Lorne Michaels’ doorman was the first person to notice she bore a resemblance to Vice Presidential hopeful Sarah Palin.

 8 pm Splash (ABC) | Series premiere: “Celebrity” contestants – including Baywatch‘s Nicole Eggert, The Cosby Show‘s Keshia Knight Pulliam and comedian Louie Anderson – train with Olympic diver Greg Louganis and then take the plunge in this American version of a Dutch diving competition.

8 pm NCIS (CBS) | Cast member Michael Weatherly directed this episode, in which the wife of a Marine bomb detector urges the NCIS team to investigate her husband’s recent death in Afghanistan. Elsewhere, Vance needs a nanny. Michael Grant Terry (Bones) guest-stars.

PREVIEW | NCIS: LA Boss Talks ‘Red’ Spin-Off, Mulls All-NCIS Tuesdays, Teases Kensi/Deeks Twist

9 pm Twisted (ABC Family) | Sneak preview: Though it doesn’t officially premiere until June, the cabler’s offering a full-episode peek at this new teen mystery series.

  2. mia says:

    Whens Henry Cusack going to get a new show of his own? He’s been floating around for too long.

    • Kathy says:

      Henry Ian Cusick has been cast as a regular in the upcoming pilot The Hundred on The CW. So hopefully we’ll be seeing plenty of him each week if the show gets picked up!

  3. kirads09 says:

    Possibly Body of Proof for the first time – so love Henry Ian Cusick. He sure is making rounds guest starring – Fringe, CSI, Mentalist etc – good for him. Shonda made a HUGE mistake there re: Scandal.

  4. B says:

    Kim Raver, ‘nough said

  5. Yibbet says:

    For the Tina Fey fans out there, she will be on a new INSIDE THE ACTOR’S STUDIO @ 8pm on Bravo.

  16. Pretty Little Liars season finale. Guess I’ll be thinking about tuning in for Season Four beginning in June.

  17. CC says:

    Keshia Knight Pulliam isn’t on “Guys with Kids.” That’s Tempestt Bledsoe. Wrong Cosby kid.

  18. S says:

    I need help. Is this the first new episode of New Girl since Tinfinity? Since the whole Dish Network debacle ( not wanting to renew contracts etc.) my DVR had to be completely reset and I think I have missed some shows I used to have set. Thanks!

  19. Joe Petitjean says:


  20. Norah says:

    Body of Proof! Can’t wait.

  21. Naturally Curlie says:

    GOLDEN BOY is HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER in drag. It’s the same theme and will go on and on and on…well you get the drift just like HIMYM. For me, enough already. It’s not original and it’s annoying.

    • Drew says:

      Yeah, that’s for sure! I, for one, no longer CARE how he met their mother… that show “jumped the shark” for me ages ago.

  22. sdexta says:

    New Girl
    The Mindy Project
    Go On
    The New Normal

  23. JP says:

    For me, US TOP GEAR and COUGAR TOWN. Unless they’re repeats, then it’s time to go to the DVR stockpile.

  24. Roni says:

    Pretty Little Liars, Go On, Chopped, Face Off, Income Property.
