DON’T MISS: “Prison Break” – When we last left this amped-up action series nearly eight years ago, Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller) was presumed dead, leaving his wife, Sara (Sarah Wayne Callies), to raise their baby son alone. But in this nine-episode reboot filmed in Morocco, we learn that – surprise! – he may actually be alive. That prompts his brother Lincoln (Dominic Purcell) to round up some of the old gang and engineer the biggest escape ever. We expect the plot lines to be as enjoyably ludicrous as ever, too. 9 p.m. Tuesday, Fox.
