Criminal Minds 9 p.m., Channel 4
Adrianne Palicki was the tough girl with a big heart on “Friday Night Lights,’’ as Tyra. And she was someone interesting on “Lone Star,’’ the Fox show that was canceled so quickly that we never got to know what her character was like. Tonight, she guest stars on “Criminal Minds’’ as an out-an-out psychopath. By the way, Palicki also returns to “Friday Night Lights’’ for the series finale, due sometime this spring on NBC. Pictured: Palicki and Jonathan Tucker.
