TO WATCH

SERIES PREMIERE Killer Women, 10 p.m. ABC Tricia Helfer stars in this new crime drama as Molly Parker, a Texas Ranger who, as one of the few women in this elite law enforcement outfit, knows better than her colleagues what motivates female criminals.

SERIES PREMIERE Intelligence, 9 p.m., CBS Josh Holloway stars as an intelligence operative with a supercomputer microchip in his brain. Which kind of seems like cheating.
