The new special "9/11: Voices From the Air" uses cellphone messages, air traffic control transmissions and other recordings to reconstruct the events of that dark day in 2001. (National Geographic, 10 p.m.)

That "vroom, vroom" you hear? That means Ron Perlman, above, and the "Sons of Anarchy" are rolling back into town, with "NYPD Blue's" Jimmy Smits and "Lost's" Harrold Perrineau joining the cast of the bad-biker drama for its fifth season. (FX, 10 p.m.)


Christina's on "The Voice," and Mariah's replacing J.Lo on "Idol" … but only "The X Factor" has Britney. The unsinkable Ms. Spears will join Simon Cowell and company when the talent search launches its second season. (Fox, 8 p.m.; also Thu.)
