On TV tonight

The Biggest Loser, 8 p.m., NBC Why does the winner of this show get a new SUV? If you really want to drive the point home, they should get a Fiat 500.

SEASON PREMIERE Mysteries at the Museum, 9 p.m., Travel The goofy histories of museum artifacts continue for a third season. Tonight: wreckage from James Dean's fatal accident, which should make for a cool story.

SERIES PREMIERE Amish: Out of Order, 10 p.m., NatGeo You just knew a reality show about the Amish was coming, even though they're supposed to refuse vanity projects. You know, like reality shows. That's why the interviews are with ex-Amish. Apparently being ex-Amish is a thing.

Fashion Star, 10 p.m., NBC The contestants have to design clothing out of their wheelhouse, like making menswear if they like to make women's clothes. Being one-dimensional is silly, like auto racing in which the drivers only turn left.
