TV highlights for June 3, 2013


FINALE WATCH: It’s farewell for good to ABC Family’s hit franchise “Secret Life of the American Teenager” (at 8 p.m.), which started in summer 2008 as 15-year-old Amy found out she was pregnant after a tryst with a boy from her class at band camp. The drama has quadrupled since then, and in the series finale, Amy graduates from high school and ponders her relationships with Ben and Ricky over the years.

SERIES PREMIERE: The docu-series “Fatal Attraction” (TV One at 9) looks at stories of people who have committed crimes of passion.

SERIES PREMIERE: A new drama, “The Fosters” (ABC Family at 9), features a lesbian couple (played by Teri Polo and Sherri Saum) who have a multi-ethnic family that’s a mix of foster and biological children. The show kicks off as Lena — Saum’s character — meets a troubled teen and suggests that she move into the house.

RETURNING SHOW: Chef Roger Mooking is back on “Man Fire Food” (Cooking Channel at 9:30), traveling the country as he indulges in his passion — cooking food (in new and unusual ways) with fire.

No, you didn’t accidentally turn on FX — Fox really is running repeat episodes of “Anger Management” (at 9:30) on Mondays in June, just to see how the Charlie Sheen sitcom does on broadcast TV.

SERIES PREMIERE: The drama “Mistresses” (ABC at 10), about the “scandalous” lives of a group of four girlfriends, based on the British series of the same name, is previewed by Hank Stuever on Page C1.

FINALE WATCH: One of the few bright spots on NBC’s drama slate, “Revolution” (NBC at 10) will be back for a second season. In the finale, the Rebels make the dangerous decision to infiltrate the Tower, which means lots of life-threatening situations. Meanwhile, Miles has a lot going on, having to take charge and dealing with his feelings for Rachel and Nora.

RETURNING SHOW: The four women of “Push Girls” (Sundance at 10) — all of whom are paralyzed from the neck or waist down — return for a second season, which will focus on themes including “betrayal, loss and new love.”

RETURNING SHOW: On the Season 3 opener of “Teen Wolf” (MTV at 10), Derek and Isaac try to find Erica and Boyd before it’s too late.

Adapted from the book about the infamous mob boss, the documentary “Whitey Bulger: The Making of a Monster” (ID at 10) looks at how the Irish mob boss, after 16 years on the FBI’s Most Wanted list, was captured in an apartment in Santa Monica, Calif., in June 2011.
