On TV tonight

SEASON PREMIERE Billy the Exterminator, 9 p.m., A&E Billy's hittin' the road, going to South Carolina, Arizona and yes, Florida. Oh, please do something with alligators.

SERIES PREMIERE Take the Money and Run, 9 p.m., ABC In this new game show (hilariously called a "competitive reality series" in press materials, but let's be honest), two chumps hide a briefcase filled with $100,000. Then they're interrogated separately by real police detectives. If they don't give up the goods, they can keep it. And we get one step closer to a real-life version of The Running Man.

Killer Sharks, 9 p.m., Discovery It's Shark Week, so let's get back to our roots by being frightened with the tale of seven shark attacks in South Africa in 1957. Don't worry, all those sharks — or was it just one, really hungry shark? — have to be dead by now.

SERIES PREMIERE Born to Dance: Laurieann Gibson, 10 p.m., BET Lady Gaga's choreographer mentors 20 contestants looking for $50,000 and a chance at a real career as a dancer. They may get lucky and eventually host American Idol, just like Paula Abdul.
