The famous dictum “Don't hassle The Hoff” will be suspended, for one night only, when the former “Baywatch” star takes the hot seat at “The Comedy Central Roast of David Hasselhoff.” (Comedy Central, 10 p.m.)


Mary Louise Parker is back as the pot-dealing mom on the return of “Weeds,” followed by Laura Linney as a mom dealing with cancer in the new series “The Big C.” (Showtime, 10:05 and 10:30 p.m.)


Sometimes the hardest part of creating a TV show is coming up with a clever yet concise title. Melissa Joan Hart and Joey Lawrence are “Melissa & Joey” in a new family-friendly sitcom. (ABC Family, 8 and 8:30 p.m.)


Hey, sailor! Kelli O'Hara and Paulo Szot star in the Tony Award-winning revival of Rodgers and Hammerstein's classic musical “South Pacific” on “Live From Lincoln Center.” It'll be some enchanted evening. (KCET, 8 p.m.)


You'd think, with all the fashion-themed reality shows out there, we'd all be snappy dressers by now … but apparently not. Luciene Salomone hosts the new makeover series “You're Wearing That?!?” (WE, 10 and 10:30 p.m.)


They're baaack! Our favorite gender-bending, decorum-rending Canadian sketch-comedy troupe graces the small screen once again in the new eight-part series “Kids in the Hall: Death Comes to Town.” (IFC, 10 and 10:30 p.m.)


Matt Damon is “The Informant!” in this fact-based 2009 comedy-drama! An FBI probe of price-fixing within the agricultural-industrial complex is the storyline! Steven Soderberg is the director! (HBO, 8 p.m.)


“Inception's” Ellen Page is hell on wheels — once she gets in touch with her inner Derby Doll — in the girl-powered 2009 comedy “Whip It.” Drew Barrymore, who also directed, and Kristen Wiig costar. (Cinemax, 10 p.m. Sat.)


Bilingual moppet “Dora the Explorer” celebrates the 10th anniversary of her animated series with an hour-long adventure, followed by the special “Dora: The Girl Heard 'Round the World” (Nickelodeon, 8 and 9 p.m. Sun.)


If someone told you to go to hell, and you wanted to oblige, how would you get there — short of dying after leading a life of sin, that is? The History Channel goes in search of the “Gates of Hell” in a new special. (8 p.m. Tue.)
