KEY EPISODE:Memphis Beat‘ (10pm on TNT)

If you have missed Jason Lee on TV since ‘My Name is Earl’ got canceled, here’s your chance to get your fix.

This new series centers on Dwight Hendricks (Jason Lee), a quirky Memphis police detective with an intimate connection the city, a passion for blues music, and a close relationship with his mother.

WATCH:Downfall‘ (9pm ET on ABC)

This new series definitely has an unique concept, that’s for sure. Pretty twisted – I’m intrigued!

‘Downfall,’ a unique, high-stakes and adrenaline-pumping game show, will put contestants on top of a 10-story building to see who has the focus and fearlessness to avoid his/her own “downfall” — literally. Along the way, they’ll have the chance to win $1 million and a slew of incredible prizes. Actor, TV personality, radio host, rock star and WWE superstar wrestler Chris Jericho is host.

DVR:Pretty Little Liars‘ (8pm on ABC Family)

Just who is the mysterious A? And could this cast BE any more good-looking??

The saying “The past will come back to haunt you” is never more true than for Aria, Spencer, Hanna and Emily. As the girls try to pay tribute to Alison’s memory, the four friends are faced with unresolved issues.
