Sanctuary
9/8c Syfy
A cult sounds intuitively scary; a cult that can foretell disasters sounds scarier; and when a murder gets linked to a group called the Cult of Kali, it sounds even scarier. Magnus, Will and Kate set out for Mumbai, India, to investigate the slaying, but Will gets waylaid by a mysterious illness in the two-hour Season 2 finale. — Michael Chant

Law & Order

8/7c NBC
If a nobody was exposed for having a string of workplace affairs, the range of scrutiny would be narrow unless somebody famous was in the mix. When it happens to a celebrity, like, say, David Letterman or Tiger Woods, it generates headlines, Web searches and jokes for late-night comedians. The dirty secrets of a talk-show host (Samantha Bee) are revealed during Lupo and Bernard's investigation of a murdered journalist. — Michael Chant

Fashion police Stacy London and Clinton Kelly head to Salem, Mass., to put a witch's bad style on trial.
