On TV this week

MONDAY

The Bold and the Beautiful, 1:30 p.m., CBS With all the soap operas these days, celebrating 25 years is quite the milestone. Don't worry, it'll never see 50.

SEASON FINALE Alcatraz, 8 p.m., Fox Rebecca really wants to find whomever killed her partner. Finding the guy who knows about the prison returnees must not be that important.

SEASON PREMIERE Make It or Break It, 9 p.m., ABC Family It's an Olympic year, so the girls will be spending a lot of time overtraining and backstabbing this year. Fake hugs for everyone!

SERIES PREMIERE Brooklyn 11223, 11 p.m., Oxygen It's like Jersey Shore, but with people from Brooklyn's Bay Ridge neighborhood. Because there weren't enough stereotypes coming to life on TV already.

TUESDAY

The Biggest Loser, 8 p.m., NBC The teams go to a Zumba class and a mountain biking trip. No offense to the trainers, but you could just tell the contestants to join the Y and get the same results.

Ringer, 9 p.m., CW The title of the episode is "Let's Kill Bridget." Poor Sarah Michelle Gellar can't get any breaks.

Justified, 10 p.m., FX Raylan deals with a pair of hit men from Detroit. Oooh, are Ben Wallace and Ndamukong Suh the guest stars this week?

SERIES PREMIERE Best Ink, 10 p.m., Oxygen Former Americal Idol hopeful Kimberly Caldwell hosts this competitive reality series about tattoo artists, who ink folks to vie for a $10,000 prize. You gotta wait two weeks before judging, though.

WEDNESDAY

SEASON FINALE Whitney, 8 p.m., NBC Whitney and Alex head to City Hall to get married, but then it gets called off when they realize the entire point of this one-joke series is that they aren't married. Things can't change on sitcoms, you know.

America's Next Top Model, 9 p.m., CW The models head to scenic … Toronto. Nothing against Canada, but the other models got to go to places like Greece and China. Plus: a photo shoot with maple syrup.

Happy Endings, 9:30 p.m., ABC Elisha Cuthbert pretends to be a lesbian. That is all.

SEASON PREMIERE Whitechapel, 10 p.m., BBC America Miles and Buchan head to London's East End, which we hear has quite the grisly history. Well, that's what happens after 1,000 years or so.

THURSDAY

Thanks, 7:30 p.m., Showtime Rita Rudner stars in a movie about a widower and his new wife, written and directed by husband Martin Bergman, who shot it in the couple's own home. So you could say she slept with the director for the role.

Person of Interest, 9 p.m., CBS Finch and Reese look for a guy with two identities who hasn't left any digital traces on either life. That means he must sit in a room all day and stare at the wall, because you can't even buy a donut these days without some corporation recording your every move.

SERIES PREMIERE Mary Mary, 10 p.m., WE Grammy winning gospel duo Erica and Tina Campbell tour the country being cool working moms. Again, with the working moms thing. The show wouldn't be nearly as interesting if it were about two moms who worked at a Dairy Queen in Carrollwood.

SERIES PREMIERE The Pauly D Project, 10:30 p.m., MTV The Jersey Shore spinoffs begin, starting with Paul DelVacchio's travails as a DJ. The Situation better get out of rehab soon so he can get a show of his own, because Snooki and J-Woww already are shooting theirs.

FRIDAY

Supernatural, 9 p.m., CW Sam and Dean have to fight a vengeful Japanese monster called a Shojo. As opposed to the vengeful Korean alcohol called soju.

Fringe, 9 p.m., Fox The team gets a case in this reality, which apparently is a rare occurrence. Where's an alternate reality when you need it?

Spartacus: Vengeance, 10 p.m., Starz The rebels finally realize that, hey, the Roman army is way stronger. That's not enough to stop our boy Sparty, though.

SEASON FINALE Merlin, 10 p.m., SyFy Morgana and Helios capture Camelot, which has Arthur down, for obvious reasons. But we hear he was born to lead, so we'll see what happens.
