DON'T MISS: "REVOLUTION" FINALE - It's lights-out for Season 1 of this intense post-apocalyptic drama - one of the few new shows to make a strong impression on viewers. As the rebels infiltrate the Tower, fans may be on the edge of their seats wondering if the world is coming to an end. Of course not: The show has been renewed for a second season. 9:01 p.m. Monday, NBC.

OTHER GOOD BETS

TODAY: Don't snicker. "Top Hooker" isn't what you think it is. It's a new reality series about fishing, which, according to the title of Episode 1, really is "The Oldest Profession." 7 p.m., Animal Planet.

TODAY: "Princesses: Long Island" is a new reality series that focuses on six college-educated young women who live pampered lifestyles in the comfort of their parents' posh homes. And for that, they get their own show? 9 p.m., Bravo.

MONDAY: Will "Mistresses" be our new summer crush - or a silly, sudsy dud? It's a drama about the "scandalous lives of a sexy and sassy group of four girlfriends," each on a path to self-discovery. Alyssa Milano, Yunjin Kim, Rochelle Aytes and Jes Macallan star. 9:01 p.m., ABC.

FRIDAY: The stealthy operatives of "Mystery Diners" head to a seafood eatery in New Orleans, where the manager is an aspiring comedian, but the antics of another employee prove to be no laughing matter. 10 p.m., Food Network.

SATURDAY: The best thing we can say about the new series "Primeval: New World" is that it contains dinosaurs. Lots of them! Maybe they will help to divert attention from the bad plot. 10 p.m., Syfy.
