I’d fly away

Maybe what’s ailing “Glee” can be fixed by someone on the inside. Actor Chris Colfer, who won a Golden Globe back when the show was humming along, penned this episode in which his character, Kurt, lands the role of Peter Pan. If Colfer is smart, the story will end with him actually flying to Neverland and never returning. 7 p.m. KMSP, Ch. 9.

In the garden

If all you know about Babylon is limited to the lyrics of that infectious David Gray tune, you may want to check out the latest edition of “Secrets of the Dead,” which looks at the lost gardens of Babylon, one of the Seven Wonders of the ancient world. Now if I could just get that darn song out of my head. 8 p.m. TPT, Ch. 2

The flying plumber

Since “Desperate Housewives” hunk James Denton moved to Minnesota, I’ve made it my mission to be acquainted with his work, but “All-Star Superman” slipped past me. This 2011 animated movie has Denton voicing a dying Man of Steel who pledges to bring down Lex Luthor (Anthony LaPaglia) before he draws his last breath. 8:30 p.m. HBO Family
