So You Think You Can Dance / 8:00pm (5) Af­ter last year’s round show­cas­ing younger con­tenders, this se­ries re­turns to its orig­i­nal ap­proach as it starts its 14th sea­son with “Los An­ge­les Au­di­tions No. 1,” with very lim­ber con­tes­tants be­tween the ages of 18 and 30. The pro­gram has to prove its moves anew, now that the sim­i­lar “World of Dance” also is on the air. Cat Dee­ley re­mains the host, and there’s an­other re­turnee: Mary Mur­phy, judg­ing again with Nigel Lyth­goe. Vanessa Hud­gens joins that panel.

The Putin In­ter­views / 9:00pm (Show­time) 12:00am (Show­time) Not that this will come as news to most peo­ple, but Rus­sia and its leader, Vladimir Putin, have been play­ing a key role in many ma­jor U.S. po­lit­i­cal head­lines. This new four-part doc­u­men­tary se­ries, air­ing over con­sec­u­tive nights, finds Os­car-win­ning writer and film­maker Oliver Stone in an ex­tended in­ter­view with the Rus­sian pres­i­dent, culled from con­ver­sa­tions be­tween the men over the course of two years.

Su­per­hu­man / 9:01pm (5) Of course, many tele­vi­sion shows these days boast char­ac­ters with amaz­ing abil­i­ties — but this new re­al­ity com­pe­ti­tion show­cases ev­ery­day peo­ple who de­ploy their re­mark­able traits in a quest to win a $50,000 grand prize. Host Kal Penn (“Des­ig­nated Sur­vivor”) leads the con­test, pre­mier­ing with “Be­yond the Imag­i­na­tion,” as play­ers take such senses as sight and smell to the ex­treme. Panelists in­clude boxing le­gend Mike Tyson and ac­tress-singer Christina Mil­ian.

Scor­pion / 10:00pm (13) The fore­cast is cloudy in more ways than one for the res­i­dents of an Ir­ish vil­lage in “Sly and the Fam­ily Stone.” The “Sly” in this case is Sylvester (Ari Stid­ham), who’s over­seas with the rest of Team Scor­pion to mark one year since the pass­ing of his beloved, and Wal­ter’s (Elyes Ga­bel) sis­ter, Me­gan.

Kal Penn hosts “Su­per­hu­man” Mon­day on Fox.
