Edie Falco and Merritt Wever on “Nurse Jackie.”

Nurse Jackie 9 p.m., Showtime 2

I love the supporting cast of this show, but Merritt Wever as Zoey has to be my favorite. Wever’s timing is perfect, and unique.

I was a huge fan of Donald Faison on “Scrubs,” but my loyalty isn’t strong enough to get me here. He is the host of this new prank show, which has comedians pulling practical jokes on “real people.” Boring. An audience watching clips will vote on which comedians did the best job.

The Daily Show With Jon Stewart 11 p.m., Comedy Central


I’ll have one order of Salman Rushdie.

Ke$ha: My Crazy Beautiful Life 11 p.m., MTV

“I want a $cottish man in a kilt.” Nuff $aid?

The Mindy Project 9:30 p.m., Channel 25

Come over, Mindy, but leave your friends at home.
