Tonight on TV: New Shows, New Episodes

There’s plenty of fresh fare tonight for television fans. Two major networks debut original series and cable nets offer a generous helping of season premieres.

CBS introduces “Intelligence” at 8 p.m. (CT).  The dramatic thriller stars Josh Holloway (“Lost”) as an intelligence operative with a super-computer microchip in his brain. The chip gives him instant access to Internet, WiFi, telephone and satellite data.

At 9 p.m., ABC premieres “Killer Women,” starring Tricia Helfer (“Battlestar Galactica”) as a lone female Texas Ranger tasked with bringing in, as the title implies, women accused of homicide.

For viewers who would rather find out what’s in store for characters they already know and love, new seasons of “Pretty Little Liars” and “Ravenswood” premiere on ABC Family, 7 and 8 p.m. At 9, “Cougar Town(TBS) and “Justified” (FX) return.

FX’s ‘Justified’ Wraps Up Season Tonight

The season finale of “Justified,” airing tonight on FX (9 p.m. ET), promises to be a nail-biter, according to USA Today’s Robert Bianco. After the murder of his friend, Deputy U.S. Marshall Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant) is a man on fire as he goes after everyone he holds responsible.

FX is available to virtually all Suddenlink customers who have what is commonly known as Expanded Basic service.

‘Justified’ Season 3 Begins Tonight on FX

Justified,” FX’s popular original series based on the works of crime novelist Elmore Leonard, returns tonight for a third season. Although season two brought an end to the Bennett family reign of terror, expect to see Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens face off against a variety of new and quirky criminals.

“The plots snap, the dialogue crackles and – to press on with the point – the characters pop,” writes USA Today TV critic Robert Bianco. “That said, it’d be unwise to go into the early episodes expecting ‘Justified’ to top last season, a breakout run that put it on the Emmy map. But it will be fun to watch it try.”

FX is available to virtually all Suddenlink customers who have what is commonly known as Expanded Basic TV service.
