On TV tonight
Whitney, 8 p.m., NBC Whitney is planning a wedding. We won't tell you if it's hers, but we think you can probably guess.
SEASON PREMIERE American Idol, 8 p.m., Fox Steven Tyler, J.Lo and Randy launch their search for the next Scotty McCreery. Come to think of it, we haven't heard much out of Scotty McCreery lately. Maybe the next Scotty McCreery is still Scotty McCreery.
Criminal Minds, 9 p.m., CBS The team investigates a criminal who appears to be following the lead of the Zodiac Killer. But is the killer a copycat of the Zodiac Killer, or a copycat of the movie Zodiac? Or a copycat of the movie Copycat? Our heads hurt.
Top Chef: Texas, 10 p.m., Bravo Charlize Theron forces the cheftestants to create a dish that embodies evil. Because all that Kentucky Fried Chicken, Taco Bell and Pizza Hut she ate in Young Adult didn't do the trick.
