"American Idol" is back on a new network, with a new set of judges. But can it hit the Nielsen high notes? It's up to pop star Katy Perry, R&B legend Lionel Richie and country music standout Luke Bryan to find a fresh crop of singers. 7 p.m., ABC

The new MX Market "at the Mining Exchange" isn't really at the Mining Exchange. It's at 119 E. Pikes Peak Ave., sandwiched between La Baguette and Springs Orleans. Did we say sandwich? Create your own ($6.99 or $3.79 for half) and build your own salad, too. Or go with the myriad signature sandwiches and salads, and pick up great chips or popcorn for 99 cents. Even better, explore six soups. The sherry tomato basil and clam chowder are delicious, and the Thai shrimp coconut lemongrass "has quite a kick," my buddy noted. Plus you can add a cup of soup to anything for only $1.49.
