2 Broke Girls
Veteran comic Sandra Bernhard guest stars in the new episode "And the Zero Tolerance," playing the owner of a posh restaurant where Max and Caroline (Kat Dennings, Beth Behrs) take extra jobs. They need the money to help pay off their bank loan, but the new atmosphere isn't entirely conducive to them. Fred Savage ("The Wonder Years") directed the story written by series co-creator Michael Patrick King. Jennifer Coolidge and Matthew Moy also star.
Hayley (Phoebe Tonkin) starts having last-minute doubts about undergoing the ritual with Jackson (guest star Nathan Parsons) in an episode with a possibly telling title, "I Love You, Goodbye." Elijah (Daniel Gillies) worries that Klaus (Joseph Morgan) has a devious new plan. Kaleb (guest star Daniel Sharman) needs Rebekah's (guest star Maisie Richardson-Sellers) help. Leah Pipes and Danielle Campbell also star.
The investigation into a series of robberies leads Gordon and Bullock (Ben McKenzie, Donal Logue) to a certain gang in "Red Hood." Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett Smith) is determined to do whatever it takes to get back her base of underworld power. The friendship of Selina Kyle and Barbara (Camren Bicondova, Erin Richards) progresses. Robin Lord Taylor, David Mazouz and Sean Pertwee also star.
Last fall, Taylor Swift was on hand for several episodes to help all of the coaches advise their team members -- and another celebrated music personality, Nate Ruess, of the music group fun., fills the same role in "The Knockouts, Part 3." Each of the remaining contestants chooses his or her own song. Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine, Blake Shelton and Pharrell Williams then make choices, too ... of which hopefuls will stay around.
The first hour of a new visit to Birmingham, Ala., deals heavily -- and appropriately -- with civil-rights history, as host Mark L. Walberg and appraiser Catherine Williamson survey items that all have connections to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Lithographs by celebrated artist Andy Warhol are included, as is a Frederic Remington painting that's accompanied by a letter the artist wrote to the current owner's great-grandmother.
Mike & Molly
A big professional event for Molly (Melissa McCarthy) translates into trouble at home in the new episode "Cocktails and Calamine." She's beyond excited about the party her publisher is staging for her and Peggy (Rondi Reed), but she worries how Mike (Billy Gardell) might fare there. When she doesn't invite him, bruised feelings are the inevitable result. Edie McClurg ("Ferris Bueller's Day Off") guest stars. Swoosie Kurtz and Katy Mixon also star.
In the new episode "Un-Breakable," Emma and Norman (Olivia Cooke, Freddie Highmore) spend a day away from the motel, while Romero (Nestor Carbonell) delves into two strange deaths in the White Pine Bay community. Elsewhere, Caleb and Dylan's (Kenny Johnson, Max Thieriot) secrets start to unravel, while Norma (Vera Farmiga) returns to school. Peter Stebbings, Keenan Tracey, Joshua Leonard and Kevin Rahm guest star.
Shahs of Sunset
In a new episode called "It's Nuclear Now," their two major home renovations keep Reza and Asa from feeling relaxed in their sumptuous abodes. While attending the first big pool party of the summer, the pair talk about whether they should break their promise to GG and warn Mike about the rumors, but GG beats them to the punch and confronts Mike about what happened. Before the party is over, no one seems sure about who is actually telling the truth.
Walter (Elyes Gabel), Cabe (Robert Patrick) and their comrades put their lives on the line to protect a witness slated to testify against a drug cartel in the new episode "Crossroads." Of course, the cartel members don't want that testimony ever to be given, so Team Scorpion and the witness go on the run to reach the trial site -- and just to stay alive. Kevin Hooks ("Passenger 57") directed the tale. Katharine McPhee and Eddie Kaye Thomas also star.
Jane the Virgin
Writers' block hits Jane (Gina Rodriguez) in "Chapter Sixteen," and it may have something to do with her communication problems with Rafael (Justin Baldoni). She tries to get herself unstuck by pursuing a workshop mentioned by Michael (Brett Dier), who's followed by an inspiration-seeking Rogelio (Jaime Camil). Xo (Andrea Navedo) comes to a big decision. Jane Seymour guest stars in the story directed by Joanna Kerns ("Growing Pains").
Ryan and Mike (Kevin Bacon, Shawn Ashmore) are in hot pursuit of a possible lead -- of the human kind -- in the new episode "Reunion." In tailing that person, they don't realize they're in for an even bigger surprise that poses a greater threat when they arrive in the small town their original quarry has fled to. Guest stars include Michael Gaston and Allison Mack, the former Chloe of "Smallville." Jessica Stroup and Michael Ealy also star.
The Big Picture With Kal Penn
Maps: They're not just about finding out where you are anymore. In this new series, actor Kal Penn ("House") crunches numbers and examines infographics to find surprising new discoveries about our contemporary age. The series opener, "Crime, Inc.," explores how a small Vermont town is making big money for drug dealers and how gangs in Washington, D.C., have taken their turf warfare into social media. Another new episode follows immediately.
