Best TV shows of the week

Tonight
Season 2 of "Major Crimes" begins with the slaying of a high profile filmmaker's pregnant wife. Sounds like a job for Capt. Sharon Raydor (Mary McDonnell) and her elite team of LA police detectives. The show debuts just before the premiere of "King & Maxwell." 9 p.m., TNT.
Step aside Jon Stewart. It's time for John Oliver to take over "The Daily Show" as its regular host takes a three-month leave to direct a movie. At least the Brit has high ambitions: His goal is to get Queen Elizabeth as a guest. 11 p.m., Comedy Central.
Tuesday
Season 4 of "Pretty Little Liars" actually begins a few moments before the end of March's cliffhanger as we learn what the girls saw in that trunk that was so shocking. The premiere of "Twisted," a small-town murder mystery, immediately follows. 8 p.m., ABC Family.
Wednesday
As Season 5 of "Royal Pains" opens, Hank (Mark Feuerstein) is antsy to return to work after spending the winter recuperating from brain surgery. His first patient is a woman whose fundraising efforts may be harming her health. 9 p.m., USA.
It's all about what dudes dig during "Guys Choice 2013," the awards show that feels like a frat party. Among the offbeat categories: Holy Grail of Hot ("Game of Thrones" star Emilia Clarke). 9 p.m., Spike TV.
Thursday
On "Pawn Stars," the guys get a hot tip on a pair of punching bags once owned by boxing great Rocky Marcianao. Naturally, this inspires Rick to show off his not-so-great boxing skills. 9 p.m., History.
Friday
Season 2 of the Rat Pack-era drama "Magic City" begins with Ike (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) sitting in the clink on trumped-up murder charges. New to the cast are James Caan, Esai Morales, Jamie Harris and Sherilyn Fenn. 9 p.m., Starz.
Saturday
On the "AFI Life Achievement Award: A Tribute to Mel Brooks," director Martin Scorsese leads a black-tie celebration of the comedy legend who gave us "Blazing Saddles," Young Frankenstein" and "The Producers." 9 p.m., TNT.
