Weatherman says a hurricane's a-comin', a storm so big it's gonna make a three-series crossover appearance and wreak rainy havoc on the animated sitcoms "The Cleveland Show," "Family Guy" and "American Dad." (Fox, 8:30, 9 and 9:30 p.m.)

NYPD detectives Goren and Eames (Vincent D'Onofrio, Kathryn Erbe) are back on the case as the police procedural "Law & Order: Criminal Intent" returns for its final episodes, followed by the season premiere of the witness-protection drama "In Plain Sight." (USA, 9 and 10 p.m.)


Old rockers never die, they just fade away … or not. Rick Springfield guest stars on the action-drama "Hawaii Five-0," and Gene Simmons of KISS fame puts in a cameo on an L.A.-set episode of the mystery-drama "Castle." (CBS, 10 p.m.; ABC, 10 p.m.)


The age-old conflict between faith and reason is illuminated when Rachel Weisz (above right, with Oscar Isaac) portrays 4th century philosopher Hypatia of Alexandria in director Alejandro Amenábar's sweeping 2009 historical drama "Agora." (TMC, 8 p.m.)


The new documentary special "Custer's Last Man: I Survived Little Big Horn" tells the tale of the purported sole survivor of that fateful frontier-era encounter between the U.S. cavalry and a combined force of Native American warriors. (History, 9 p.m.)


Two words: Paintball. OK, that's actually one compound word, but it was also the subject of a singularly epic episode of "Community" last season. The college-themed sitcom tries to top that outing in a two-part sophomore-season finale. (NBC, 8 p.m.)


The future is uncertain on the season finale of "Fringe" — but not for the show itself, which has been renewed. If you haven't been watching this super-smart sci-fi drama, spend the summer getting caught up so you'll be ready when it returns. (Fox, 9 p.m.)


Lights, camera, and lots of action! Michael Cera takes all comers in 2010's super-fun "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World," and Angelina Jolie (below) proves she's worth her "Salt" in the just-go-with-it 2010 thriller. (HBO, 7 p.m. and midnight; Starz, 9 p.m.)
