TO WATCH

Season premiere — Baggage Battles, 9 p.m., Travel: Among the many pieces of unclaimed luggage being combed though, a leather belt that is somehow connected to Buffalo Bill pops up. We're talking Wild West Buffalo Bill, not the one from Silence of the Lambs.

Chicago Fire, 10 p.m., NBC: It's really looking like Clarke is the mole in the firehouse. Now's when the writers of 24 would have Jack Bauer torture it out of him.

COMING UP

Nightmare on Franklin Street: Tampa Theatre starts two weeks of daily terror on Thursday. Movies include The Lost Boys, The Birds, Psycho, Night of the Living Dead, The Shining and Halloween. Most sessions cost $12 for one movie, or $17.50 for double feature. See tampatheatre.org for schedule.

Clearwater Jazz Holiday: The 34th annual event has taken some hits for its not so jazzy lineup, but the four-day music fest will draw thousands to Clearwater's waterfront Coachman Park. Acts include Chicago (Thursday), Jane Monheit (Friday), Tower of Power (Saturday) and Brandi Carlile (Sunday). General admission: $10 in advance; $20 at gate. (727) 461-5200.

Kris Kristofferson: The 77-year-old singer-songwriter-actor will be in the area in the next couple of months to film Dolphin Tale 2, but on Wednesday he has a concert at the Palladium Theater in St. Petersburg, presented by Ruth Eckerd Hall. $45–$65. (727) 791-7400.
