Tonight
There will only be one weekly airing of "Dancing With the Stars" (with results included). We can only hope other reality shows follow suit. As for the happy hoofers, they include Valerie Harper, Bill Nye, Nicole "Snooki" Polizzi and some other "celebrities" that we had to go Google. 8 tonight, ABC.
As Season 9 of "Bones" begins, someone really needs to nail that dastardly serial killer, Pelant, so Booth (David Boreanaz) and Brennan (Emily Deschanel) can get back to planning their wedding. 8 p.m., Fox.
Tuesday
Benjamin Bratt narrates "Latino Americans." It's a three-part documentary series that chronicles the rich history and experiences of Latinos who have helped shape North America over the past 500-plus years. 8 p.m., PBS.
Starring Andy Samberg and Andre Braugher as odd-couple cops, "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" is one of the season's most promising sitcoms. It debuts before "New Girl" and "The Mindy Project." 8:30 p.m., Fox.
Wednesday
From here on out, we never ever want to hear a "Survivor" contestant moan about what a horrible ordeal it is. If that's the case, why is Rupert Boneham returning for a fourth time on "Survivor: Blood vs. Water"? 8 p.m., CBS.
Yes, we'll finally get to find out who wins the Season 8 crown on "America's Got Talent." But not before they make us sit through two hours of wretched reality TV bloat. 9 p.m., NBC.
Thursday
Wow, that didn't take long. "The Million Second Quiz" crowns a winner and comes to an end tonight, leaving poor host Ryan Seacrest searching for something to fill his free time. 8 p.m., NBC.
Friday
"Great Performances" offers a lavish four-part series that presents adaptations of four of William Shakespeare's history plays in a single chronological narrative. First up: "Richard II." 9 p.m., PBS.
Saturday
Could there be a painful submission hold on tonight's "Cupcake Wars"? WWE divas Layla and Alicia Fox drop by to decide if the wrestling-themed treats are worthy of being served at SummerSlam. 8 p.m., Food Network.
