Bravo pays tribute to James Gandolfini, who died last week at age 51, by re-airing the episode of “Inside the Actors Studio” (10:30 a.m.) that featured him; it originally ran on Oct. 17, 2004, a few months after the Season 5 finale of “The Sopranos.”

Des and the guys head to Germany on “The Bachelorette” (ABC at 8 p.m.), where there’s a one-on-one date — but also a group date that involves sledding in the German Alps, and therefore way more fun.

The documentary “Miss You Can Do It” (HBO at 9) looks at an annual pageant in Illinois that spotlights young girls with disabilities. Abbey Curran — who has cerebral palsy and was the first Miss USA contestant with a disability when she was named Miss Iowa in 2008 — is the founder of the pageant.

FINALE WATCH: National Geographic Channel wraps up the first season of science show “Brain Games” (at 9) as the hosts explore various aspects of the brain, including how it procceses big lies versus half-truths.

For anyone who missed Lindsay Lohan appearing on “Anger Management” on FX and has the urge to watch it now, the episode airs on Fox at 9:30.

SERIES PREMIERES: The drama “Under the Dome” (CBS at 10), based on Stephen King’s book about a small New England town that is suddenly trapped under a huge transparent dome, is reviewed by Hank Stuever on this page. On Page C1, Stuever reviews the documentary “Homegoings” (WETA at 10), which looks at the traditions of African American funerals.

Savi gets a big surprise on “Mistresses” (ABC at 10) when she finds out she’s pregnant. Meanwhile, there’s more baby drama when April discovers her late husband may have fathered a child with another woman.

Actress Melissa McCarthy, actor Idris Elba and singer Dale Watson are on “The Late Show With David Letterman” (CBS at 11:35).
