DRAMA Person of Interest CBS, CITY-TV, 9 p.m. ET/PT Imagine if there really was a machine that could predict when someone is about to commit a violent crime. That's pretty much the premise behind this hit rookie drama starring former Lost regular Michael Emerson as Finch, creator of the computer program known as “The Machine,” and Jim Caviezel as Reese, the former CIA agent he hires to take care of the crime before it occurs. In tonight's show, the pair focus on a teenager whose brother was just murdered. The rapper known as Astro, who made it to the final rounds of The X Factor last fall, makes his acting debut as the person of interest.

DRAMA The Firm Global, 10 p.m. ET/PT Picking up the story from the 1993 movie starring Tom Cruise, which in turn was adapted from a John Grisham novel, this new filmed-in-Toronto legal drama demands a pretty big leap of faith from viewers. Specifically, if the upright lawyer Mitch McDeere, now played by Josh Lucas, has recently resurfaced from a decade in the witness protection program, how come his name is still Mitch McDeere? Either way, in tonight's episode Mitch's defense plans for a young client charged with murder turn complicated when the accused's brother is named as a co-defendant. Can Mitch really advise his client to testify against his own flesh and blood?

MOVIE The Company of Wolves Vision, 9 p.m. ET, 6 p.m. PT Directed by Neil Jordan, this 1985 British film merges elements of fantasy and horror into a surrealist pastiche. Set in modern times but working off the classic Little Red Riding Hood fable, the story follows the plucky teen Rosaleen (Sarah Patterson), who sets off into the foreboding forest to visit her Granny (Angela Lansbury) and happens upon a handsome young huntsman (Micha Bergese) along the way. Is he Rosaleen's protector or the big bad wolf? The answer is the stuff of which nightmares are made.
