Bonnie and Clyde (9pm, A&E, History and Lifetime) - The first installment in a two-part miniseries -- simultaneously airing on three different networks -- in which the lives of Depression-era outlaws Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker are dramatized. Tonight, the two meet and begin their life of crime. My one sentence review: Part one drags and is surprisingly dull, but things pick up a bit in the second part, which airs Monday at 9. I wasn’t a fan, but everyone who liked “Hatfields & McCoys” will tune in and it’ll be a big hit. Okay, that’s two sentences.

Also on tonight . . .

Amazing Race 23 (8pm, CBS) - The final four teams race through Tokyo, where one pair is eliminated. The last three teams then fly to Juneau, Alaska, and the winner is revealed.

Bob's Burgers (8:30pm, Fox) - Tina is delighted when Bob fills in as a substitute home-economics teacher at school and creates a fully operational restaurant in the classroom. Unfortunately, some father-daughter friction develops.

Revenge (9pm, ABC) - Emily readies for her wedding and for her ultimate takedown, but the Graysons make things difficult as they slip through her grasp.

Homeland (9pm, Showtime) - Brody's loyalty to the mission wavers when he meets a ghost from his past.

Treme (9pm, HBO) - Nelson drags Liquori to a meeting with Davis to see if the polar opposites can find any common ground between them on the jazz center. Meanwhile, Antoine's classroom is shaken by an act of senseless violence.

The Mentalist (10pm, CBS) - The FBI seek assistance from Jane when a computer programmer vanishes, but he will only help them if Lisbon is allowed to work the case with him.
