TV Watch List: Tuesday, Feb. 7

‘The River’

DRAMA. Scary things live in the Amazon — and we’re not just talking about the giant snakes. In this spooky drama from horror master Oren Peli (“Paranormal Activity”), the family of missing nature show host Dr. Emmet Cole goes searching for him in uncharted South American waters. Via “found footage” from the documentary crew accompanying the rescue operation — a nifty storytelling trick that heightens the suspense for the audience — they wind up finding much more than they were bargaining for, like angry spirits and possessed dolls.

Series premiere, 9 p.m., ABC

‘Doomsday Preppers’

REALITY. You know that saying, “hope for the best and prepare for the worst”? The people profiled in this new series take the latter sentiment a little too seriously, stockpiling supplies and building bunkers to survive an impending apocalypse.

Series premiere, 9 p.m., National Geographic


DRAMA. Raylan is confronted by two old foes after a jailbreak. Of course, the marshal doesn’t need a jailbreak to meet two folks with a grudge against him on any given day.

10 p.m., FX

‘Jersey Couture’

REALITY. It’s another round of women buying fancy dresses, Garden State-style.

Season premiere, 10 p.m., Oxygen
