It's a moment that requires quite of a bit of delicacy to handle properly.

Hell on Wheels

AMC, 9:00 pm ET

As the Western series returns for a 13-episode fourth season, longtime fans are likely focused mainly on one big question: Did Elam (Common) survive his battle with an enormous bear in the Season 3 finale? Signs point to the affirmative, but one of the show's executive producers recently told Entertainment Weekly that we "will be surprised to see the manner in which he survives."

Bad Dog!

ANIMAL, 8:00 pm ET
Bad Dog!

A new episode called "Monkey Business" probably takes its title from Boo, a monkey whose specialty is snatching objects that don't belong to him and then scurrying away at breakneck speed.

Finally, meet an orange tabby named Oliver who's large and in charge, especially when it comes to his kitchen domain.

TCM, 8:00 pm ET

Wipeout

ABC, 8:00 pm ET
Wipeout

A theme of some earlier installments resurfaces in "Hotties vs. Nerds 4.0." It's easy to tell the nature of the competitors on the obstacle course this time, some more notable for brains than beauty -- though beauty also has its place here.
