9PM | LIFETIME – 9TH SEASON PREMIERE
Project Runway
– Into every TV season some Tim Gunn should fall, and tonight, he’s finally back on our TVs every week, as the show kicks off its ninth season of competition, with Heidi Klum, Michael Kors and Nina Garcia back in the judges’ chairs, and a lineup of guest celeb judges that kicks off tonight with Christina Ricci.

9PM | USA
Burn Notice
– Sam goes undercover to befriend a heroin dealer as part of a plan to help the CIA recover a weapon from some mobsters. But when his plan doesn’t go well, the CIA is unhappy with him, and, by association, Michael.

NTSF: SD: SUV
– Haven’t checked out this cheeky procedural drama spoof from the wacky mind of star/creator Paul Scheer? Do yourself a favor and do so, or DVR it if it’s past your bedtime.
