 “Top of the Lake” — Elisabeth Moss of “Mad Men” delivers an Emmy-worthy performance in this edgy, disturbing and fascinating miniseries mystery from Jane Campion (“The Piano”). Moss plays a detective from Sydney who is investigating the disappearance of a pregnant 12-year-old among the backwoods of New Zealand. The saga is full of intriguing twists and eccentric characters, including a bizarre mystic (Holly Hunter) who heads up an all-female commune. 9 p.m.,  Sundance Channel.

Let’s get ready to rumba. “Dancing With the Stars” is back for its 16th season with a roster that includes wannabe hoofers Wynonna Judd, Kellie Pickler, Andy Dick, D.L. Hughley and Dorothy Hamill. 7 p.m., ABC.

Is it time to avoid the shower again? In “Bates Motel,” a prequel to Alfred Hitchcock’s landmark film “Psycho,” we’re introduced to troubled teen Norman Bates (Freddie Highmore) and his domineering mother (Vera Farmiga). 10 p.m., A&E.
