USA TODAY - What's worth watching, and what might not be, in prime time on Tuesday.
Fixing Juvie Justice/Frontline: Football High | PBS, 9 ET/PT, times may vary
Public broadcasting takes a two-show, two-hour look at some major problems facing young Americans today. The first hour explores efforts to improve an over-taxed -- and some would say under-performing -- juvenile justice system, one of which is built around a New Zealand effort that stresses conciliation and rehabilitation over punishment. The second, a timely Frontline repeat, looks at the increased risks of concussions and heat stroke faced by high school football players as the players grow larger and the pressures to win grow ever greater.
Amish Mafia, Tickle, Porter Ridge | Discovery, 9 ET/PT
And then you have Discovery, giving us a three-show block of Amish Mafia, the new Moonshiner's spin-off Tickle, and the new series Porter Ridge - which transplants the channel's love affair with rednecks-on-a-rampage to Indiana. Some viewers will love it. For the rest of you, odds are the block will either make you pray for Shark Week's return --- or increase your donation to PBS.
Body of Proof | ABC, 10 ET/PT
Tonight's Proof repeat is the latest incarnation of TV's most shopworn plot: The crime-solver accused of a crime. This time it's Tommy, found covered in blood at a murder scene with no memory of how he got there or how the victim ended up dead. It's up to Megan, of course, to put aside her doubts and prove his innocence. Considering how often this plot gets reused, it's clear that TV writers find it irresistible. It's equally clear that they should try harder to resist.
