Don’t miss

ANIMATION DOMINATION HIGH-DEF: Viewers will be treated to a sneak preview of two 15-minute programs airing under this edgy new late-night block, starting with “Axe Cop.” It’s the tale of an insomniac superhero (voiced by Nick Offerman) who gets just two minutes of sleep a night and eats only birthday cake. It’s followed by “High School USA!” in which Mandy Moore and Vincent Kartheiser supply the voices of perky students. 9:30 p.m. Sunday, Fox. (Animation High-Def officially premieres Saturday).

OTHER BETS

Tonight: On “Drop Dead Diva,” Jane (Brooke Elliott) represents a star basketball player. For his sake, let’s hope she’s got game. 9 p.m., Lifetime.

MONDAY: Better be on your toes for Season 2 of “Breaking Pointe.” The unscripted series about the inner workings of a ballet company resumes as the dancers begin auditions for “Cinderella.” 9 p.m., The CW.

MONDAY: “Supermarket Superstar” is a “Shark Tank”-like reality series that has home chefs pitching their recipes to food industry titans for a chance to have their creations put on the shelves of a major grocery chain. 10 p.m., Lifetime.

TUESDAY: “The Vineyard” could be some lightweight summer fun. It’s a “docu-soap” that follows a group of young hotties as they work, frolic and hook up along the shores of Martha’s Vineyard. 10 p.m., ABC Family.

TUESDAY: Time to hit the couch. “Web Therapy” is back in session for Season 3 as kooky shrink Fiona Wallace (Lisa Kudrow) welcomes an array of new guests, including Steve Carell, Meg Ryan, Billy Crystal, Chelsea Handler and old “Friends” co-star Matt LeBlanc. 11 p.m., Showtime.

WEDNESDAY: Brace yourself for “Spell-Mageddon.” It’s a game show that challenges contestants to spell increasingly difficult words while dealing with distractions like getting dunked in a tank or doused in slime. 9 p.m., ABC Family.

THURSDAY: She may be super fast, but Sanya Richards-Ross can’t run from the cameras. In “Sanya’s Glam & Gold,” the Olympic track star puts her life with her husband, NFL player Aaron Ross, on display for all to see. 10 p.m., WEtv.

THURSDAY: The delightfully sick comedy, “Children’s Hospital,” returns for more Adult Swim absurdity. How absurd? The new season has the doctors holding a wine-tasting during an operation. The police procedural parody, “NTSF:SD:SUV::” immediately follows. Midnight, Cartoon Network.

FRIDAY: The mesmerizing period drama, “Magic City,” continues with Ike (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) again crossing ethical boundaries. This time, he initiates a scheme to rig the Cuban lottery. 9 p.m., Starz.

SATURDAY: You may want to watch “American Haunting” with the lights on. It’s a new series that delves into the tormented lives of families experiencing paranormal activity in their homes. First up: A Kentucky residence where strange voices are being heard. 8 p.m., A&E.
