Broadcast: Glee is a rerun! Glee is a rerun! No, seriously, the show (8:00, Fox) repeats its "Grilled Cheesus" episode from early this season. That gives you an opportunity to check out other new stuff, including all the investigative hijinks on CBS's NCIS, the season finale of No Ordinary Family on ABC, or the skinny (har har) on NBC's The Biggest Loser at the same time. Of course, you'll want to switch over to ABC for Dancing With The Stars at 9:00, if it's important to you to know who gets kicked off or to see performances by OneRepublic, Selena Gomez, or The Scene.

There's a sort of dignified-grownup-drama three-way race of new episodes at 10:00, with Body Of Proof, Dana Delany's new medical-examiner show on ABC, facing CBS's The Good Wife and NBC's Parenthood. The Good Wife, I should note, brings back Michael J. Fox as a lawyer Alicia's firm is dealing with in a class-action lawsuit.

Cable: The major news in prestige projects is that FX closes out the highly regarded but little watched drama series Lights Out (10:00 p.m.), having had the unhappy task of canceling another (after Terriers) series that everybody admired but audiences simply wouldn't grab onto.

Elsewhere, there's a two-hour Deadliest Catch season 6 special on Discovery at 9:00, ahead of next week's new season. For fans of unscripted shows about the very rich, Bravo's new Pregnant In Heels (10:00 p.m.) is a reality show about, apparently, a "maternity concierge" (not a lie!), who "advises privileged expecting mothers." I think that with this show, Bravo has found the secret formula that everyone who wants to bring out the absolute worst in people involved in online discussions has been looking for. Rich pregnant ladies on reality shows! Where to begin!

Weird Notes: I keep meaning to mention that the Science Channel has a new show called Monster Bug Wars. I don't know what it is, but it's on at 10:00, and it has kind of a great title, you have to admit.

Late Night: James Franco's media blitz continues with a visit to The Colbert Report, while Jon Stewart catches up with Colin Quinn on The Daily Show.
