To watch

Series premiere; The Neighbors, 9:30 p.m., ABC: It's like 3rd Rock From the Sun, except the family this show focuses on are the only humans in a subdivision full of aliens. But the property values are high and everyone mows their lawns, so eh, it's worth the trouble.

Series premiere; Animal Practice, 8 p.m., NBC: We were subjected to a sneak preview after the Olympics, but now you can watch as many episodes as you can stomach until this one crashes and burns.

Season finale: Top Chef Masters, 10 p.m., Bravo: Another season of not being able to pronounce quinoa and wondering what roasted kale tastes like comes to a close. Oh, and someone wins.

Season premiere; CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, 10 p.m., CBS: Peri Gilpin from Frasier plays Ted Danson's wife in this season opener. Norm and Cliffie are sure to stop by soon.
