One small step for Suzanne

Suzanne Somers’ career didn’t dissolve after “Three’s Company.” In fact, she had a reasonable follow-up hit with the family-friendly sitcom “Step by Step” (6 p.m., Hub), a series that has not aired in reruns for three years. To make up for its absence, Hub will show two episodes every weekday evening.

A new team

The Fox News Channel debuts its new prime-time lineup, which will kick off with “On the Record With Greta Van Susteren” (6 p.m.), segue into “The O’Reilly Factor” (7 p.m.) and then move to “The Kelly File” (8 p.m.), hosted by Megyn Kelly. “Hannity” (9 p.m.), hosted by Sean Hannity, is batting cleanup.

Checkerboard jungle

The spotlight is on education in “Dream School” (9 p.m., Sundance) and “Brooklyn Castle” (9 p.m., TPT, Ch. 2). In “School,” rapper/actor Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson and others try to inspire troubled kids in the L.A. area while “Castle” documents how an unlikely junior high has racked up 30 national chess titles.
