Tuesday TV: ‘Breaking In’ New Cast Member

The comedy “Breaking In” (Fox, 9:30 p.m.) returns with the all-purpose comedy fixer Megan Mullally, who adds a little verve to the proceedings in the office of the security company, even as she makes the rest of the company look a little tattered.

Still, it seems to be a comedy that at least the network has faith in, so it may be around for a while.

Also back despite the critical catcalls and low ratings: “I Hate My Teenage Daughter” (Fox, 8:30 p.m.). Both are bolstered by the more popular lead-ins, “Raising Hope” (Fox, 8 p.m.) , in which Katy Perry guest stars, and “New Girl” (Fox, 9 p.m.).

Super Tuesday brings voters to the polls in 10 states, with direction of the hard fought Republican presidential nomination at stake after Election Results (CNN, MSNBC, Fox News, 7 p.m.; NBC, 10 p.m.).

The Disney star from the “Camp Rock” series, who began her career on “Barney & Friends,” had a meltdown while on tour with the Jonas Brothers a couple of years ago and briefly dropped out of sight, checking into rehab for an eating disorder. She returns to that facility and tells her story in the documentary “Demi Lovato: Stay Strong” (MTV, 10 p.m.). She discusses it further, answering questions from fans, in an aftershow at 11.

The first season of “Jane by Design” (ABC Family, 9 p.m.) ends during Fashion Week.

Finding Emmett’s camera on “The River” (ABC, 9 p.m.) means a whole new cache of shakey found footage to show.

Toughest call on cable: “Justified” (FX, 10 p.m.) or “Southland” (TNT, 10 p.m.).

Courtenty Cox also directs this week’s episode of “Cougar Town” (ABC, 8:30 p.m.), which features an appearance from Sarah Chalke.

The awful Abby Lee on “Dance Moms” (Lifetime, 9 p.m.) gets her preteen troupe to salute Vegas showgirls.

The Joan Baez biography on “American Masters” (PBS, 9 p.m., check local listings).

Teams switch trainers on “The Biggest Loser” (NBC, 8 p.m.).

How are you set for survival condos? Someone’s selling them on “Doomsday Preppers” (National Geographic, 9 p.m.).

Minivans attempt to cross the Rockies on “Top Gear” (History, 9 p.m.).

“Extreme Couponing” (TLC, 10 p.m.) zeroes in on Boxing Day specials.

Jean Arthur is the featured star on Turner Classic Movies, with “The Talk of the Town” (8 p.m.), “History is Made at Night” (10:15 p.m.), “The Public Menace” (midnight), “The More the Merrier” (1:30 a.m.) and “Mr. Deeds Goes to Town” (3:30 a.m.).

The Big East tournament kicks off with DePaul vs. Connecticut (ESPN2, noon), Pittsburgh vs. St. John’s (ESPN2, 2:30 p.m.), Providence vs. Seton Hall (ESPNU, 7 p.m.) and Villanova vs. Rutgers (ESPNU, 9:30 p.m.). Elsewhere, it’s North Texas vs. Western Kentucky (ESPN2, 7 p.m.) in the Sun Belt final and Detroit vs. Valparaiso (ESPN, 9 p.m.) in the Horizon League tournament.

In the women’s Big East Tournament final, it’s Connecticut vs. Notre Dame (ESPN, 7 p.m.).
