Critic’s corner: What’s on TV tonight

Revolution 10 p.m., Channel 7

This is so unbelievable. NBC and the makers of “Revolution” have completely lost their minds. In Monday’s episode, we learn that the apocalyptic lights-out disaster is really all just taking place within an Atlantis-like bubble. The whole thing is a “Truman Show” experiment to study how human beings cope with the loss of electricity and what happens when we don’t have cellphones and computers. Will that bump up the hurting ratings? Pictured: Billy Burke and Daniella Alonso.

Lost 8 p.m.-midnight, G4


OMG. O.M.G. Every week, G4 re-airs four old episodes of “Lost.” But for this week’s “Lost” night, the producers of the series, including J.J. Abrams, have reunited the entire cast (including the actors who played Nikki and Paulo) and they are delivering an alternative finale. According to a source, “They all know they blew it in the final episode of the series back in 2010, so they’ve gone back in time, in a way, for a redo.” This time, no limbo.
