On TV this Tuesday: Golden Boy loses a little of his lustre, NCIS‘ “Tiva” takes a vengeance-filled trip, some rowdy bros visit Dixie and MTV’s party don’t start ’til Ke$ha gets her own show. Here are nine programs to keep on your radar.
8 pm Hell’s Kitchen (Fox) | The team members must pluck their animal protein from a farm pen to determine what they’ll cook in the challenge. (Note to contestants: I’m not sure if it’ll work on cows, pigs and such, but it probably won’t hurt to chant “baa-ram-ewe” when you’re there among the hoofs.)
8 pm NCIS (CBS) | While the NCIS team investigates the murder of a Mossad officer in Virginia, Tony and Ziva track her father’s killer to Berlin. (Get scoop on Ziva’s arc for the rest of the season — and beyond.) Marina Sirtis (Star Trek: The Next Generation), as new Mossad director Orli Elbaz, and Alan Dale (Lost) guest-star.
8 pm Hart of Dixie (The CW) | Zoe follows Brick’s advice to finally express her feelings, but her timing’s way off. Meanwhile, Tansy’s brothers make an unexpected visit, which means some wild times for George.
9 pm NCIS: Los Angeles (CBS) | A body is stolen after a special task force successfully takes down an infamous cartel boss, and it’s up to Callen & Co. to find it.

10 pm Golden Boy (CBS) | Clark becomes a suspect in the murder of a young model when someone inside the investigation leaks information about the case to a reporter he’s secretly seeing (played by Banshee‘s Trieste Kelly Dunn). Timothy Adams (Sunset Beach) guest-stars.
10 pm Body of Proof (ABC) | Megan and Tommy don’t know who to believe when a mental patient – who seems sane and lucid – tells them a murderer climbed down from the ceiling and offed the wrong girl. Meanwhile, might Megan have some competition for Tommy’s attention? (Watch a sneak peek.) Sharon Lawrence (NYPD Blue) and Craig Bierko (Boston Legal) guest-star.
10 pm Awkward (MTV) | Jenna worries that her relationship with Matty may be on the rocks.
10 pm Who Gets the Last Laugh? (TBS) | D.L. Hughley (The Hughleys), Cheri Oteri (Saturday Night Live) and Danny Masterson (Men at Work) compete for this week’s best punking.
