Season Premiere
It’s the Fourth of July in Riverdale, but the festivities come to a halt when Archie discovers that his father, Fred Andrews (played by the late Luke Perry), has died. The premiere quickly morphs into an emotional tribute as the town and all of its inhabitants come together to rally around Archie and pay their respects to both the character of Fred and the actor who played him. —Samantha Highfill

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: 8 p.m. on Fox

Three down — bye, Egg (Johnny Weir), Ice Cream (Tyler “Ninja” Blevins), and Panda (Laila Ali) — and tonight another celebrity will be unveiled. The Fox, The Penguin, The Eagle, and The Flower all perform, and odds are Robin Thicke, Jenny McCarthy, Ken Jeong, or Nicole Scherzinger will think penguin is Danny DeVito. Yes, because it would be that obvious. —Gerrad Hall

Nancy Drew

HOW/WHEN & WHERE TO WATCH: 9 p.m. on The CW

Series Debut
This dark, sexy version of the teen sleuth may have fans of the original books clutching their magnifying glasses in shock. “It’s the first time that we’re seeing Nancy as this complicated and flawed,” star Kennedy McMann explains of her titular red-haired detective character. “In the original books, she’s very prim and proper. She’s perfect. In our version, she’s growing up and making a lot of mistakes.” The series begins after Nancy’s mother dies and her college plans subsequently go up in smoke as she stays behind in her small town, swearing off her passion for investigating. But when a murder rocks Horseshoe Bay, she quickly discovers that the legend of a beauty queen haunting the town is more than just a story. “The ghosts on this show are very real — and scary!” McMann says. “Nancy’s a skeptic, but as these supernatural things crop up, it’s piercing holes in her perception of the world.” —Sydney Bucksbaum
