Hotel Hell (9pm, Fox) - The king of Fox premieres the second season of his fourth series on the network (all highly rated). “Hotel Hell” has chef Gordon Ramsay checking out troubled hotels across the country, trying to shake some sense into the owners and staffs. I have a weakness for this one (and for “MasterChef.” And okay, “MasterChef Junior.” All hail the king!) Tonight, a New Mexico hotel run by an owner more interested in singing than managing the property.

Also on tonight . . .

Bachelorette: The Men Tell All (8pm, ABC) - Andi and 16 of her rejected bachelors dish about the season. There’s a blooper reel and a sneak peek at the season finale.

The Newburgh Sting (9pm, HBO) - HBO airs this documentary examining the controversial case of four African-American men arrested in 2009 for plotting to blow up two synagogues in the Bronx and fire missiles at U.S. military planes. The men were convicted in 2010 and sentenced to 25 years in prison. The exposé, airing at 9 p.m., was directed and produced by Kate Davis and David Heilbroner.

Way Out West (10pm, truTV ) - A new reality series in which three families of outfitters compete in life and business in the majestic mountains of Idaho.

Murder in the First (10pm, TNT) - An important witness turns up dead, potentially crippling the prosecution’s case against Erich Blunt.

Under the Dome (10pm, CBS) - Big Jim and Rebecca consider the extreme measure of population control in order to extend resources in Chester’s Mill.

NOTE:CNN was supposed to air an episode of “Death Row Stories” last night about the Timothy Hennis case out of Fort Bragg. It got pre-empted in favor of coverage of the Malaysian Air crash. The episode is tentatively scheduled to air tonight at 10 p.m. instead.
