DON'T MISS: "Dancing With the Stars" Usually, we like to wager on who will win the glitzy mirror-ball trophy. But for Season 21, we're betting big money that a crazed, out-of-control Gary Busey will either eat it or snap it over his knee after being eliminated early in the season. Meanwhile, spastic judge Bruno Tonioli will be rendered speechless for the first time ever. Take it to the bank. 8 p.m. Monday, ABC.
SUNDAY: Break out the swimsuits and sashes. The Miss America pageant celebrates its 95th anniversary with a fresh bevy of beauties. Chris Harrison ("The Bachelor") is our host. 9 p.m., ABC.
SUNDAY: After a decade off the air, the filmmaking experiment known as "Project Greenlight" is back. Oscar-winning pals Matt Damon and Ben Affleck hear pitches from 13 wannabe directors seeking a chance to oversee a $3 million film. 10 p.m., HBO.
MONDAY: They finally will name this season's winner of "So You Think You Can Dance" but not before two hours of mind-numbing bloat. So you think you can last? 8 p.m., Fox.
MONDAY: The two-part "American Experience: Walt Disney" reveals, among other things, that kindly Uncle Walt had a dark side. Clearly, it's the side that inflicted the song "It's a Small World" upon us. 8 p.m., PBS.
TUESDAY: "Best Time Ever With Neil Patrick Harris" is an offbeat variety-type show stuffed with everything from stunts and skits to pranks and musical numbers. We're hoping it will be, well, legendary. 10 p.m., NBC.
TUESDAY: "Sons of Anarchy" creator Kurt Sutter trades guns and motorcycles for swords and horses in the medieval saga "Bastard Executioner." But apparently there still will be plenty of excessive violence. 10 p.m., FX.
WEDNESDAY: We don't know who will walk away with the grand prize on tonight's "America's Got Talent" finale. However, we do know that they will make us wait two long hours to find out. 9 p.m., NBC.
THURSDAY: "Jeff Dunham: Unhinged in Hollywood" is a special that has the ventriloquist and comedian entertaining an audience at the Dolby Theatre. The show also features appearances by country singer Brad Paisley, funny guy Chris Parnell and former UFC champ Chuck Liddell. 8 p.m., NBC.
FRIDAY: "Meat Loaf: In and Out of Hell" is a documentary about an overweight, bullied kid who grew up to become a flamboyant rock 'n' roll star. Candid interviews with family members, friends and fellow musicians make for a gritty and sometimes humorous profile. 8 p.m., Showtime.
SATURDAY: As a new season of "Doctor Who" launches with a two-part premiere, evil Missy/The Master (Michelle Gomez) is back and up to no good. But where in the heck is the MIA Doctor (Peter Capaldi)? We want answers! 9 p.m., BBC America.
