Will “Lost” not be forgotten? Will “Mad Men” three-peat? And will Conan O'Brien and Team Coco get the last laugh? Get the answers to these and other questions when Jimmy Fallon hosts the “62nd Primetime Emmy Awards.” (NBC, 5 p.m.)

You're a multi-ton mega-lizard, stomping and chomping your way across the primordial plain millions of years ago, and then — oh crud! You're crude. It's the “Last Day of the Dinosaurs.” Witness their demise in this new special. (Discovery, 9 p.m.)


The boys may make more noise, but rap is also a ladies' game. Missy Elliott, Queen Latifah and MC Lyte are among the musical form's female practitioners featured in the new documentary “My Mic Sounds Nice: A Truth About Women in Hip Hop.” (BET, 10 p.m.)


Baby, he's a rich man: The new special “Warren Buffett: The Modern Midas” charts the rise — and rise — of the billionaire investor, philanthropist and so-called oracle of Omaha. So, Mr. Buffett, got any hot stock tips for us? (National Geographic, 5 and 8 p.m.)


If you like it twangy, there's the “CMA Music Festival: Country's Night to Rock,” with Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood. But if you prefer it tweedy, soprano Renée Fleming is featured on a new “Great Performances.” (ABC, 8 p.m.; KCET, 8 p.m.)


The college football season gets underway in earnest with a slate of games. Of particular interest to local fans: The NCAA-sanctioned USC Trojans, under new coach Lane Kiffin, and with quarterback Matt Barkley, kick off their long drive for redemption at Hawaii. (ESPN, 8 p.m.)


No R-rated “American Pie”-style shenanigans for these band campers: Squeaky-clean teen dreams the Jonas Brothers and the wholesome, winsome Demi Lovato return in the made-for-TV musical “Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam.” (Disney, 8 p.m.)


Cougar alert! A five-film marathon of older-woman/younger-man movies includes Anne Bancroft and Dustin Hoffman in the 1967 satire “The Graduate,” and Jennifer O'Neill and Gary Grimes in the 1971 tale “Summer of '42.” (TCM, 5 and 8:30 p.m.)
