Emily Owens, M.D. (New Series)
9 p.m., The CW
Eager first-year intern Emily Owens (Mamie Gummer) is ready to look past her school days and jump right into her medical career. What she didn’t expect was that her high-school nemesis — the popular Cassandra (Aja Naomi King) — would also intern at the same hospital, and that they would be competing for everything all over again. This includes the attention of hunky fellow intern Will (Justin Hartley).

Underemployed (New Series)
7 p.m. & 10 p.m., MTV Canada

Tattoo Nightmares (New Series)
8 p.m., 8:30 p.m. & 11 p.m., Spike
Who hasn’t witnessed the abomination that is a terrible tattoo? Sometimes we laugh at them, other times we just stand back horrified. This new reality series seeks out those poor folks who went under the needle with the best intentions and now wish their bodily ink stains were a faded memory.

The Big Decision (New Season)
9 p.m., CBC
Dragons’ Den co-stars Jim Treliving and Arlene Dickinson are back in this unscripted series to lend their expertise — and their money — to help Canadians with their struggling small businesses.

10:30 p.m., Comedy
After getting a less-than-satisfactory hovercraft from Montez, the boys take him to small-claims court to plead their case before the judge (guest star Bruce McCulloch from Kids in the Hall fame). Also, keep your eyes peeled for a cameo appearance by rockers The Black Keys rummaging around at a garage sale.

11 p.m., KCTS
The documentary Unfinished Spaces tells the story of Fidel Castro’s lofty dream of building the Cuban National Art School on the grounds of a country club golf course back in 1961. When construction was halted due to political disagreements, the architecturally stunning buildings stood empty and unused until now, when the original architects may finally have a chance to see their work finished a half-century later.
