What to Watch Tonight: Under the Dome's Swan Song, the Season 4 Premiere of Longmire, and the Season 3 Finale of Beauty and the Beast

What to watch on Thursday, September 10...

SEASON 4 PREMIERE, 12:01am, Netflix
The erstwhile A&E Western is the latest program to be revived by the streaming service, dropping an all-new 10-episode season today.

Beauty and the Beast
In “Destined,” Liam is determined to expose Vincent’s beastliness and thereby shatter his and Cat’s world. Can the couple pull together and take down their nefarious nemesis before he leaves their love in tatters?

8:30pm, NBC
Sunday Night Football
The defending champion New England Patriots host the Pittsburgh Steelers in the NFL season opener. And yes, NBC continues to insist on calling this Sunday Night Football despite it being Thursday because the Peacock doesn’t play by your rules, man.

9pm, Lifetime
Project Runway
Heidi challenges the contestants to design lingerie for her fashion line in “Lace to the Finish.” Guest judge Bella Thorne has questions about the ethicality of what appears to be a pretty blatant grab for free labor.

Under the Dome
It’s Domes-day for Chester’s Mill in “The Enemy Within,” as the town’s hemispherical prison comes a-crumblin’ down (crumblin’, tumblin’). Can the Resistance defend the outside world from the Kinship? Will the Egg wind up scrambled, soft-boiled, or poached? (Is the Egg even still a part of this show? I tried asking Tim but he just started sobbing. I’m… I’m worried about him.)

10pm, Epix
Craig Ferguson: Just Being Honest
The comedian covers religion, aging, and his experiences with pop stars in a standup set at New York City’s Town Hall.

10pm, Comedy Central
“Buried Alive, 6 Star Review, Public Speaking” puts Forrest through a gauntlet that includes spending 24 hours in a coffin, addressing a crowd, and fielding a viewer’s request for a six-star rating.

10pm, FX
The record company, Rosie, just gave Gigi a big advance in “Take My Picture by the Pool.” In other career crossroads, Bam and Rehab bail on the band to become EDM DJs.

10pm, Syfy
David faces up to his past while Michael faces the music for his time in Mallory. Elsewhere in “House of Sacrifice,” Alex and Gates strive to save Vega from self-destruction even as Gabriel cooks up something especially sinister for the city.

10pm, USA
Tensions between the Sarkissians and a local gang come to a head in “Dog Catches Car,” and if I know anything about gang wars this will certainly culminate in a snappily choreographed dance-off between the two sides. In less toe-tapping developments, Mike scrambles to find the Sarin gas and Briggs’s true motives come to light.

10pm, IFC
Documentary Now!
“The Eye Doesn’t Lie” probes a 1986 murder case that sent an innocent man to prison.

Comedy Bang! Bang!
Weird Al Yankovic stops by for a game of “Celebrity Weird Al Do’s.” Although I’m not sure whether “do’s” refers to etiquette advice or hairstyles, I’m confident that Weird Al is a reliable source of inspiration either way. Meanwhile, the show hires three new co-hosts in an effort to reach a wider female audience.

10:30pm, FX
“Guardians” finds Russ and Lina mulling who should get custody of the kids in the event of their untimely demise. Now I may not be a parent, but this strikes me as the sort of decision that can only be made by challenging the contenders to a scavenger hunt, in which each clue is more fiendish than the last.

11pm, Syfy
Geeks Who Drink
Harold Perrineau and Zachary Knighton lead the teams. Clearly this matchup was selected to invoke memories of the Battle of Perrineau-Knighton of 1387, a crucial turning point in the Hundred Years’ War that I most assuredly did not just make up.
