Betty White’s Off Their Rockers (New Season)
8 p.m., CTV & NBC
The unstoppable Betty White is back with this senior-citizen version of Punk’d, kicking off with two back-to-back episodes of elderly pranksters pulling outrageous hidden-camera tricks on unsuspecting young whippersnappers.

Snooki & JWoww (New Season)
7 p.m. & 10 p.m., MTV Canada
Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi and Jenni “JWoww” Farley are back for another season of outrageous antics, but this time the former Jersey Shore gals will be facing something new as Nicole takes centre stage as she prepares to give birth to her first child. Not to be outdone, Jenni and her boyfriend take the plunge (in more ways than one) into the next stage of their relationship.

Justified (New Season)
7 p.m. & 10 p.m., Showcase
This season of the acclaimed crime drama about renegade Deputy U.S. Marshall Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant) picks up right where it left off with Givens and his criminal nemesis Boyd Crowder (The Shield’s Walton Goggins) in the centre of an ambush and the hillbilly mob family headed up by Mags Bennett (Margo Martindale, who won an Emmy for the role) ready to pick up the pieces.

The Joe Schmo Show (New Season)
7 p.m., 8 p.m., 9 p.m. & 10 p.m., Spike
Almost a decade ago, this faux reality series introduced a cheeky premise in which the “schmo” was the only person who thought he was competing in a reality show, but was actually at the centre of an elaborate practical joke, surrounded by a “cast” of actors playing stereotypical reality-show contestants. Now, the show returns with the same premise but a different show, with one gullible guy convinced he’s competing against 11 others (including celebrity Lorenzo Lamas) for US$100,000 and the chance to become a real-life bounty hunter.

8 p.m., Global & CBS
Michael Nouri guest stars as Ziva’s father (and director of Israel’s Mossad), who arrives to visit his daughter but leads her to suspect he has other intentions. Meanwhile, the team investigates the murder of a journalist with links to a Navy petty officer.

Cracked (New Series)
9 p.m., CBC
David Sutcliffe (Gilmore Girls) stars in this intense crime drama about a former SWAT officer suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder who joins up with the psychiatric crime unit and becomes partnered with a psychiatrist (Battlestar Galactica’s Stephanie von Pfetten).
