It will be a big night for South Florida. The San Antonio Spurs take on the Miami Heat in the NBA Finals at 9 p.m. ET on ABC. Host city Miami could root LeBron James to another stellar performance. ABC offers the pregame at 8:30, and Jimmy Kimmel gets a half-hour prime-time special at 8. Will Smith and Shaquille O'Neal visit. What will Smith say about the box-office flop "After Earth"? Or will that topic be off limits?
USA offers two series that film in South Florida. "Burn Notice" begins its seventh and final season at 9. Michael Westin (Jeffrey Donovan) will be kept busy with a risky CIA mission and strained personal relationships. Jack Coleman ("Heroes") and Adrian Pasdar ("Political Animals") have recurring roles. USA says that Pasdar plays "a notorious underground terrorist named Burke" who recruits Michael.
Then USA presents the premiere of "Graceland" at 10. It's one of the most misleading pilots I've ever seen. It looks like a flashy, jokey action series, and the early scenes traffic in annoying macho posturing as FBI, DEA and Customs Enforcement agents trade put-downs while living in a posh house in Southern California. (The series films in Fort Lauderdale.) The veterans kid rookie FBI agent Mike Warren (Aaron Tveit of "Les Miserables"). Yet as the opener winds down, "Graceland" takes a dark, promising turn. Perhaps "Graceland" won't waste Tveit and Daniel Sunjata ("Rescue Me") as a veteran FBI agent.
Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson headlines "The Hero," a reality contest that debuts at 8 on TNT. Johnson also serves as executive producer and challenges nine everyday competitors to tackle difficult missions.
If you like zombie dramas, you'll want to try the wildly creative "In the Flesh." The three-part miniseries starts at 10 on BBC America and continues in that time slot Friday and Saturday. A man with "Partially Deceased Syndrome" receives varied reactions from his family when he returns after having died in 2009. There's also the Human Volunteer Force, which is targeting any zombie that tries to re-enter society.
Jay Leno counters with Henry Cavill, the new Superman from "Man of Steel," at 11:35 on NBC. Of course, TV viewers may be very familiar with the dashing Cavill from "The Tudors."
