With FX's "Justified" off until next year, it may be time to take another look at "Golden Boy" (10 p.m., CBS 3) ,a cop show with a twist. We already know where the show's ambitious title character, homicide Detective Walter Clark (Theo James). will be in seven years -- the commissioner's office.
But it's the getting there that matters (and seeing who survives the ride). I watch this one sporadically, and mostly for Chi McBride, who plays Clark's older and wiser partner. Fans of straightforward cop shows can easily ignore the gimmick and enjoy the show's "NYPD Blue" vibe.
Some other things you may want to check out:
-- "Legally Blonde" (9 p.m., ABC Family). Before Reese Witherspoon was a mouthy brunette, standing by her man at the worst possible time -- and geting herself arrested in the process -- she was the very blonde Elle Woods, whose unlikely career at Harvard Law School made for a silly, but surprisingly funny, 2001 movie. Which is probably more than Witherspoon and hubby will get out of his alleged DUI.
