American Ninja Warrior on NBC at 8:00pm ET.

So You Think You Can Dance on Fox at 8:00pm ET. I hear that there’s a “Streets vs. Stage” theme this year?

Becoming Us on ABC Family at 9:00pm ET.

Texas Rising on History at 9:00pm ET. Original mini-series finale. I’m sorry, Texans, but I can’t see any show with Texas in the name and not think of the Texan oil guy from The Simpsons who was always in a white suit and constantly shooting guns for the hell of it.

The Making of the Mob on AMC at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. This eight-part miniseries will revolve around gangster Lucky Luciano and his rise in the New York mob. It’s a mish-mash of documentary style interviews, archival footage, and narration, along with recreations using actors. So, kinda sounds like it could be a complete mess but maybe they’ll pull it off.

Genevieve Burgess uses Simpsons references for a cultural touch point for many things, Texas, so don’t feel slighted.
