"J.K. Rowling: A Year in the Life" (7 p.m., WLS-Channel 7): Cameras even follow the "Harry Potter" mastermind to the church where she once worked as a janitor.
"Primeval" (7 p.m., FX): A news team travels to Burundi to capture a legendary 25-foot-crocodile. Starring Dominic Purcell, Orlando Jones and Brooke Langton. If you need to get in the mood, it's preceded by "Snakes on a Plane" at 5 p.m.
"Are We Alone?" (8 p.m., Discovery): Explorers travel to the "strangest, harshest" parts of our planet to look for clues that there are others out there. Careful what you wish for.
"Royal Pains" (9 p.m., USA): I'm recommending because it showcases a doggie "bark mitzvah."
"Soundstage: Billy Idol" (9 p.m., WTTW-Channel 11): Gosh, he's aging well.
"The Fashion Show" (9 p.m., Bravo): Part one of the season finale.
