The dome gets dumber, Nicole Richie tweets and Hulu harpoons the housewives. Here's what caught my eye in this week's programming:
"The Real Housewives of New Jersey," 7 p.m., Bravo: Another season, another reason to get up off the couch and take a walk.
"Ray Donovan," 8 p.m., Showtime: Season 2 kicks off.
"Lone Star Lady," 9 p.m., A&E: Johnson City, Texas, mom Rochelle Carnes tries to keep her family grounded after they literally strike oil in this new documentary series.
"The Strain," 9 p.m., FX: Guillermo del Toro co-wrote and directs the pilot episode of this new vampiric horror series, which features a plane full of corpses. The scary part is that their luggage winds up in Detroit.
"Masters of Sex," 9 p.m., Showtime: Season 2 begins.
"Seed," 8:30 p.m., CW: A sperm donor comes face-to-face with his progeny and their families in this new sitcom.
"Under the Dome," 9 p.m., CBS: The food supply dwindles. What's next - acid rain? What ... really? Never mind.
"The Hotwives of Orlando," online, Hulu Plus: How do you parody a parody? A lot of great talents, including Casey Wilson, Angela Kinsey and Kristen Schaal, give it a shot in this new comedic spoof.
"Matador," 8 p.m., El Rey: A bad-boy soccer star doubles as a covert agent in this action adventure series premiere. Every time he completes a mission, somebody blows a vuvuzela.

"Married," 9 p.m., FX: Judy Greer and Nat Faxon navigate marriage in this new comedy; Jenny Slate also stars.
"#CandidlyNicole," 9 p.m., VH1: This new series is based on Nicole Richie's Twitter feed. Can a drama based on Nicolas Cage's Pinterest account be far behind?
"You're the Worst," 9:30 p.m., FX: The lead characters in this new comedy love each other, but hate relationships.
"Science of Stupid," 7:30 p.m., National Geographic: Have you ever been shot in the groin by a potato gun? I guess that's what happens when you think e=M.C. Hammer.
