Iron Man 2 (7 p.m., ABC/Ch. 4): Broadcast premiere of this 2010 film, which isn't nearly as good a "Iron Man" or "Iron Man 3."

The Million Second Quiz (7 p.m., NBC/Ch. 5): Days 8 of the 12-day event.

Latino Americans (7 p.m., PBS/Ch. 7): Part 1 of this excellent three-part, six-hour documentary series.

Dads (7 p.m., Fox/Ch. 13): Premiere of this really terrible, racist, sexist, deadly unfunny new sitcom.

Whose Line Is It Anyway? (7 p.m., CW/Ch. 30): Comedian Jonathan Mangum and Legends Football League players Chloe Butler and Monique Gaxiola guest star.

Women's college volleyball (7 p.m., P12N): BYU at Utah

Brooklyn Nine-Nine (7:30 p.m., Fox/Ch. 13): There's too much Andy Samberg in the premiere of this new sitcom, but the show is funny and shows promise.

America's Got Talent (8 p.m., NBC/Ch. 5): Six acts perform.

New Girl (8 p.m., Fox/Ch. 13): Nick and Jess go to Mexico - and trouble follows them. (Season premiere)

The Mindy Project (8:30 p.m., Fox/Ch. 13): Not surprisingly, it doesn't take Mindy long to get sick of Haiti. And James Franco guest stars as a new doctor. (Season premiere)

Frontline (9 p.m., PBS/Ch.7): An report on the ongoing turmoil in Egypt.

Covert Affairs (10 p.m., USA): Annie tries to take down Henry.

Sons of Anarchy (11 p.m., FX): Jax deals with collateral damage.

Suits (11 p.m., USA): An old nemesis returns. (Season finale)
