Wicked City (10 p.m., ABC) – In a new drama from ABC, detectives in 1980s Los Angeles track a serial killer who targets young women who want to be famous. While the world doesn’t need another serial killer drama or more dead women on TV, this one does have Jeremy Sisto (as the lead detective) and a lot of great Billy Idol mood music. Ed Westwick plays the creepy killer and Erika Christensen (Julia from “Parenthood”) is his girlfriend. Check out our full review of “Wicked City.”
