Killer Women 10 p.m., ABC

Don’t expect another quip-heavy awk-umentary-style chuckler with “Killer Women,” co-produced by Sofia Vergara (of “Modern Family”). Do expect “the deadliest women in America” — a.k.a. Texas Rangers — hunting down eight killers in eight weeks. “Battlestar” fans, take note: Tricia Helfer (Number Six) and Michael Trucco star. And fans of actual killer women take note, Lifetime is still doing its thing over there.

Abby Lee Miller of “Dance Moms.”

Dance Moms 8 p.m. Lifetime


For example, Abby Lee Miller. You’d think after four seasons spent screaming at little girls to make them dance better, she might eventually soften her approach a little. Wrong. The girls only took third at nationals and Abby is out for blood. No one’s position on the team is safe; but your spot on the couch is perfectly fine. Don’t worry. I won’t let her get you.
