On TV tonight

2012 NBA Draft, 7:30 p.m., ESPN Glad basketball season is finally over? Too bad.

SERIES PREMIERE Twenty Twelve, 9 p.m., BBC America A mockumentary with Downton Abbey's Hugh Bonneville, who is playing a coordinator for the London Olympics and has to deal with all sorts of nonsense. It seems funny, but we wouldn't be surprised to learn everything was true.

SERIES PREMIERE Anger Management, 9 p.m., FX Charlie Sheen is back on TV by translating the Jack Nicholson role from the 2003 movie for basic cable. Denise Richards is playing his ex-wife, so this won't stretch his chops too much.

Wilfred, 10 p.m., FX This always felt like a Robin Williamsy show, you know? Oh, look, it's Robin Williams.

SEASON PREMIERE Louie, 10:30 p.m., FX Another season of self-loathing and wishing Louis C.K. would be on Parks and Recreation more.

SEASON FINALE Awkward., 10:30 p.m., MTV Another season of self-loathing and wishing you didn't have to choose between Jake and Matty.

SERIES PREMIERE Brand X With Russell Brand, 11 p.m., FX The first of six specials with Brand discussing current events with a studio audience. In case you wanted to know his take on the Greek bailout. Think of the Get Him to the Greek jokes!
