TDT, 9.30pm

Add Un­der the Dome to the list of shows, in­clud­ing Home­land and Lost, that should never have lasted longer than one sea­son. The first se­ries of this US drama, based on a Stephen King novel, was in­trigu­ing but sea­son two, which started with the dome go­ing mag­netic, is off the rails. Tonight Bar­bie ( Mike Vo­gel) is in­ter­ro­gated about his links to the Dome. The loopy stuff comes when Big Jim’s ( Dean Nor­ris) de­ceased wife and a younger ver­sion of Bar­bie make an ap­pear­ance.

10.20pm, ELEVEN

Emily Owens M. D. was launched on TDT with lit­tle fan­fare last ast year and has now been rel­e­gated to Eleven. This US med­i­cal drama is s boosted by a strong per­for­mance from Meryl Streep’s daugh­ter Mamie Gum­mer ( pic­tured) in the ti­tle role of first- year sur­gi­cal in­tern at Den­ver ver Me­mo­rial Hos­pi­tal and is clearly aimed at a younger au­di­ence ce than ER or Grey’s Anatomy. In tonight’s sec­ond- last episode, Emily ily takes charge when the hos­pi­tal is in­un­dated with pa­tients dur­ing a win­ter storm.
