TV picks: Monday, April 30

“Two and a Half Men”

COMEDY. Charlie Harper is back — sort of. It’s unlikely Charlie Sheen will ever set foot on the “Men” set again — remember the whole tiger blood thing? — but that doesn’t mean the writers can’t have some fun with his character, who appears as a ghost after Alan has a minor heart attack tonight. In a stupendous act of stunt casting, Kathy Bates pulls on the requisite bowling shirt for the role of the deceased king of debauchery.

9 p.m., CBS

“The Pitch”

REALITY. It’s “Mad Men” minus the ’60s-era office sexism, smoking and drinking when two real-life ad agencies compete for the business of big clients.

Series premiere, 9 p.m., AMC

“Money From Strangers”

REALITY. Need a sign that the economy isn’t getting better any time soon? This new hidden-camera show finds people willing to do ridiculous and/or humiliating things in public for cash.

Series premiere, 10:30 p.m., MTV

“Hawaii Five-0”

DRAMA. When a suspect threatens to unleash a deadly virus, Danny and Chin Ho call in backup — all the way from Los Angeles. This crossover episode finds Sam and Callen from the “NCIS: Los Angeles” lending a hand in Hawaii; this two-part tale concludes during that show’s episode tomorrow night at 9.

10 p.m., CBS
