I am Frankie (time slot premiere) (7:30 pm, Nickelodeon)
A cutting edge, experimental android navigates the perils and wonders of
being a teenager in I Am Frankie, Nickelodeon's newest serialized
live-action show. I Am Frankie tells the story of Frankie Gaines (Alex
Hook), who looks like any other human girl, but harbors a big
secret--she functions as a high-tech computer, complete with internet
access, extensive memory and more. The series premieres daily, Monday
through Friday, at 7:30 p.m. (ET/PT) on Nickelodeon. After escaping from
tech company EGG Labs to avoid being used for evil purposes, Frankie
enrolls in high school in an attempt to pass as a typical teenager.
Despite having an inside full of wires and circuits, Frankie begins to
adapt well by bonding with her new best friend Dayton (Nicole Alyse
Nelson), juggling loads of homework and dealing with boy crushes, all
while keeping her true identity a secret. Suspicion soon arises about
Frankie, as popular girls Tammy (Mohana Krishnan), Lucia (Uriel
Baldesco) and Makayla (Kristi Beckett) question her quick victory during
a math competition. To complicate things even further, Frankie's wiring
goes haywire as she starts experiencing human emotion, creating more
challenges and adventurous fun. How long can she keep her true identity
a secret while maintaining herself as a normal teenager?

Thou Shalt Not [new] (10 pm, TV One)
The true crime series Thou Shalt Not pulls back the curtain on
individuals who commit the gravest of crimes and sins, breaking the Ten
Commandments in the process. Murders, scandals, cover-ups, and deadly
affairs are just a few of the stories in each episode's examination of
Godless behavior. "What makes Thou Shalt Not different is that each
story has a direct connection to a religious or spiritual way of life,"
says Jubba Seyyid, TV One Senior Director of Programming & Production.
"Using the expertise of spiritual advisors along with the subtle
intricacies of religious iconography, Thou Shalt Not, delves into a
space where most shows dare not go." Each episode examines two stories
of people who are connected by the theme of their crimes, one of the
Commandments: Worshipping False Gods, Idolatry, Taking the Lord's Name
in Vain, Violating the Sabbath, Disrespecting Your Parents, Murder,
Adultery, Stealing, Lying and Jealousy. Through first person interviews
with family, friends, and experts, the viewer sees a picture of the
perpetrator's former life - and how things spiraled.
Meet the Putmans [new] (10 pm, TLC)
Bill and Barb Putman seem like they have an average American family.
They have been married for 32 years, have four great kids and love to
spend time with their grandchildren, but their still-growing family does
things a little bit differently. This 25-person family lives under one
roof, shares one bathroom, pools all of their finances, and helps raise
all of the kids as one family unit. Each episode will not only detail
the little things that test this large household, but also highlight
those extreme "for better or worse" moments they experience as both
couples and a family.
Tomorrow's scripted and network premieres:
The Mindy Project (final season 6 premiere) (3:01 am, Hulu)
This final season will see Chris Messina return for multiple episodes,
while Reese Witherspoon will also guest.
