DON’T MISS: “SONS OF ANARCHY” — The edgy drama revs up for a new season that has Jax (Charlie Hunnam) finally ruling SAMCRO uncontested. But that doesn’t mean his worries have ceased. Both Clay (Ron Perlman) and Tara (Maggie Siff) are behind bars and being pressured to rat out the club. Meanwhile, new enemies emerge and a horrific event is about to be a major game-changer. 10 p.m. Tuesday, FX.

OTHER GOOD BETS

TODAY: “Last Tango in Halifax” is a totally charming romantic comedy about childhood sweethearts who reunite after 60 years apart and the death of their spouses. Derek Jacobi and Anne Reid shine in the lead roles. 7 p.m., PBS.

MONDAY: Yes, Ryan Seacrest really is everywhere. Now, he’s hosting “The Million Second Quiz,” a game-show “event” that plays out over 10 nights, testing the limits of the contestants’ knowledge, endurance and will to win. 7 p.m., NBC.

MONDAY: “The Arsenio Hall Show” has its host returning to the late-night scene after a long absence and promising a “cavalcade of surprises.” But will they revive the Dog Pound? 11 p.m., KMSB.

TUESDAY: They strutted their stuff and busted some moves. Now, the remaining contestants on “So You Think You Can Dance” find out who’s the best of the best in the season finale. 7 p.m., Fox.

TUESDAY: Shame on “American Masters” for taking this long to profile an athlete, but the subject is a great one: Tennis legend Billie Jean King. 8 p.m., PBS.

THURSDAY: First, watch the “2013 CBS Fall Preview” for a sneak peek at the network’s new shows. Then have some fun predicting which one will be canceled first. (Our money is on “We Are Men”). 8:31 p.m., CBS.

FRIDAY: Preview clips for Season 4 of “Haven” show lots of things blowing up. Clearly, the town inspired by Stephen King is a dangerous place. Maybe they should put a dome over it. 10 p.m., Syfy.
