It's no laughing matter when a man in a full clown costume murders the owner of a bakery. Normally, a clown would be easy to spot in New York, but when the CSIs arrive on the scene they discover numerous men dressed in identical clown outfits. Back in the office, things aren't any merrier when Jo's FBI agent ex-husband (David James Elliott) visits. — Tim Holland

Your OWN Show: Oprah's Search for the Next TV Star

9/8c OWN
You can win all kinds of jobs on reality-TV elimination contests. You can even get married (or not). And the winner of Oprah's new contest will become...a talk-show host (on OWN, not surprisingly). Queer Eye alum Carson Kressley and soon-to-be ET co-anchor Nancy O'Dell are the hosts, and Mark Burnett (Survivor, The Apprentice) is the executive producer. The contestants face a different TV-related challenge each week, under the tutelage of a "guest mentor." The first challenge: produce talk-show segments, with Oprah's old pal Dr. Phil as the mentor. — Paul Droesch

Cotton Bowl
8/7c Fox
The 75th edition of this postseason classic features LSU taking on Texas A&M in Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Two of college football's top defensive players are on display in this matchup, with Jim Thorpe Award winner Patrick Patterson leading the nationally ranked Tiger defense and Butkus Award winner Von Miller the key stopper for the Aggies. On offense, the Aggies may have an advantage — it's probably not a coincidence that A&M's six-game winning streak matches up with the six straight 100-yard rushing performances by tailback Cyrus Gray since he became the starter. —Dave Roeder
