"24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY" -- Jack's back! Four years after receiving his cancellation notice, tightly coiled action hero Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland) returns for another round of pulse-pounding, nail-biting TV comfort food. This time, it's a 12-hour "event" series that has the former federal agent resurfacing in London to put the beat-down on evildoers who want to kill the visiting U.S. president (William Devane). Looks like it's time to restart the clock. 8 p.m. Monday, Fox.



In a very special 550th episode (that's no typo), characters from "The Simpsons" are drastically altered to look like plastic residents of a Lego world. So, what, did the artists guzzle too much Duff Beer? (8 p.m., Fox).

Season 1 of "Resurrection" concludes, and it will be ironic if it doesn't return for a second. 8 p.m., ABC.


"A Fragile Trust: Plagiarism, Power and Jayson Blair at The New York Times" is the latest installment of the "Independent Lens" series. It's a portrait of the most infamous serial plagiarist of our time and a look back at the scandal that rocked not only the Times, but all of journalism. 10 p.m., PBS.

In the creepy season finale of "Bates Motel," Norman (Freddie Highmore) is haunted by his past. Hate to tell the poor boy, but his future is also pretty bloody awful. 10 p.m., A&E.

Louis C.K., the man GQ magazine recently declared to be "America's undisputed king of comedy," returns with back-to-back new episodes of "Louie." Lots of laughs -- and some raunchiness -- are guaranteed. 10 p.m., FX.


In the season finale of "New Girl," Jess and Nick (Zooey Deschanel and Jake Johnson) decide to go ahead and take a cruise they booked before their breakup, and invite the gang along. Can you say, "Big mistake?" 9 p.m., Fox.

Tonight's episode of "Pioneers of Television" explores the comic approaches of Jonathan Winters, Robin Williams, Tina Fey, Dick Van Dyke. 7 p.m., PBS.


"CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" wraps up another killer season with an episode that has Russell (Ted Danson) and his team look into a crime with a connection to a mob heist that occurred 25 years earlier. Treat Williams guest stars. 10 p.m., CBS.


Can you hear the sound of hysteria? "Broadway Idiot: Green Day on Broadway" is a documentary that follows rocker Billie Joe Armstrong as he works with collaborators to transform the band's landmark album, "American Idiot," into a raucous Broadway musical. 8 p.m., Showtime.

We expect a laugh riot to break out during the American Comedy Awards. It's a celebration of the funniest folks in stand-up, television and films, as decided by fan voting. 9 p.m., NBC.


We smell a big cliffhanger in the season finale of "Blue Bloods." Danny (Donnie Wahlberg) disobeys orders and investigates a case he was told was off-limits. The "shocking" information he uncovers could have serious repercussions within the department. 10 p.m., CBS.

Aloha, Season 4 of "Hawaii Five-0." 8 p.m., CBS.


Time to catch up with the walking undead as Season 2 of "In the Flesh" kicks off. Unfortunately, Kieren (Luke Newberry) has to deal with more hatred aimed at so-called "rotters." 10 p.m., BBC America.
