Kiefer Sutherland as Jack Bauer in ‘24: LIVE ANOTHER DAY’.

MONDAY

SERIES FINALE 24: Live Another Day, 9 p.m., Fox

Say farewell to Jack Bauer (again) as this miniseries revival of the Fox show that ended in 2010 comes to a close. As usual, he's trying to stop terrorists from carrying out actions that would devastate the globe. Classic overachiever.

Idris Elba: King of Speed, 10 p.m., BBC America

Interested in learning about the political, social and historical evolution of racing in places like London, Scotland and Finland? No? Well, what if we told you that charming British actor Idris Elba (The Wire, Prometheus) was your guide through it all in this two-part documentary. Better?

Under the Dome, 10 p.m., CBS

Poor Dean Norris. First, he missed out on an Emmy nomination Thursday for his riveting work on Breaking Bad's final season, now on this show his character is stuck conducting a town census. Dude just can't catch a break.

TUESDAY

Chasing Life, 9 p.m., ABC Family

Here's a show about plucky teens dealing with cancer, in case The Fault in Our Stars didn't make you bawl/roll your eyes enough.

WEDNESDAY

NOVA, 9 p.m., PBS

This ambitious four-part miniseries called "Australia's First 4 Billion Years'' tells the origin story of the giant continent, from the beginning of Earth to today, chronicling all of the giant kangaroos, prehistoric crustaceans and deadly asteroids in between. Wow, that's a lot to cover. Can we bring back Idris Elba for this?

SERIES PREMIERE The Divide, 9 p.m., WE

The president from Scandal (Tony Goldwyn) co-created this eight-episode legal drama that explores the criminal justice system and directed its pilot, because apparently between guzzling booze by the gallon and stoking his on-off relationship with Olivia Pope, he has soooo much time on his hands.

SERIES PREMIERE Virgin Territory, 11 p.m., MTV

This new hour-long documentary series spotlights 15 young adults from across the country who are grappling with whether to lose their virginities. The show is apparently part of MTV's partnership with the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy. Don't worry MTV, we bet that other show you aired about teen moms (er, Teen Mom) scared an entire generation of youngsters from having kids.

THURSDAY

Hollywood Game Night, 8 p.m., NBC

Scandal's Scott Foley represents Pope & Associates on tonight's episode, along with ice skater Johnny Weir (where's Tara Lipinski?!), Leah Remini, Krysten Ritter and Nick Swardson.

Welcome to Sweden, 9 p.m., NBC

And now, for this edition of Random Movie Stars on Unpopular Summer Shows: Will Ferrell guest stars as himself in the new episode of this show from Amy Poehler's brother Greg.

SERIES PREMIERE Married, 10 p.m., FX

Nat Faxon and Judy Greer star in this new FX comedy as a married couple who spend more time than they would like arguing over bills and fretting over their vanishing sex life. Let's hope the actual show isn't as boring as that description.
