Burn Notice
9/8c USA
Michael, Fiona and Sam are back for a fourth season as the show moves to a new 9/8c time slot. In the premiere, the trio take on bodyguard duties for a lawyer, who needs protection from a biker gang. And, as always, there's new intrigue for Michael as he works to thwart a looming terrorist threat and is forced to take on an unlikely partner. — Brie Hearn

So You Think You Can Dance
8/7c Fox
Season 7's audition process has rolled through New York, Miami, Los Angeles and Chicago, and finishes up in Dallas and Nashville. But with all due respect to those cities, the only municipality that matters is Las Vegas, where the all-important callbacks begin in the second half of tonight's episode. Last week's premiere featured a skit called "CSytycdI: Miami," but Sin City, site of the original CSI, is where the judges, aka dance forensics specialists, will really have their work cut out for them. — Joe Friedrich

Real Housewives of New York City
10/9c Bravo
The tart and juicy tales from the core of the Big Apple conclude in the sudsy show's third-season finale, in which Jill and Bethenny at long last try to end their feud. Meanwhile, LuAnn performs her single at a record-release party, but the wives are more focused on her new French paramour. The season culminates with our well-pampered gang gathering to witness Ramona as she renews her vows. Need more hot dramas and hot messes? Tune in next Thursday for a reunion special featuring the New York wives and the premiere of Bethenny Frankel's solo reality show, "Bethenny Getting Married?" — Dean Maurer

Royal Pains
10/9c USA
It's time to head to the Hamptons once again as Royal Pains makes its Season 2 premiere. This season, Henry Winkler and Marcia Gay Harden join the cast as Hank and Evan's absentee father and a board member at Jill's hospital, respectively. In tonight's episode, an inventor's heir tries to separate himself from his dad, but his methods aren't particularly safe. — Brie Hearn

NBA Finals
9/8c ABC
East meets West, grit meets glitz, and green meets gold for the second time in three years, and 12th time overall, as the Boston Celtics invade Tinseltown to take on the World Champion Lakers. While Kobe Bryant is chasing his fifth title ring and coach Phil Jackson his 11th, the embarrassing six-game loss to Boston in 2008 is oh-so fresh in their memory, adding an intriguing element of payback to this latest best-of-seven. Not that the Celtics' 9-2 edge in head-to-head NBA Finals with the Lakers isn't motivation enough. L.A. kid Paul Pierce brings an added edge to Boston's upset bid at Staples Center, where the Lakers are 8-0 in the playoffs, and ABC may need all four quarters to point out all the celebrity attendees. — Roger Leister

9/8c CW
Alex O'Loughlin, who will play Steve McGarrett in CBS's fall reboot of Hawaii Five-O, stars as undead private investigator Mick St. John, who helps the living, instead of feeding on them, by using his acute vampire senses. The short-lived 2007 drama is a clever summer pairing with the CW's popular Vampire Diaries while that show is in repeats. In this episode, Mick investigates the vampire-like murder of a college student. — Tim Holland

Modern Marvels
10/9c History
This series is at its best when it focuses on everyday things we depend on but so often take for granted. In the case of this hour on exits and entrances, you could say they...ummm...open a door to a whole new world. Included are the unusually tall doors at the Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral; bulletproof doors; the airlock into a level-four biohazard lab; and entry ways at the Winchester Mystery House in San Jose. — Bill Ecklund
