Hooray for old-timey cops!

BBC America's first original scripted series Copper follows Irish immigrant-turned-Civil-War-veteran-turned-19th-century-NYC-detective Kevin Corcoran as he seeks justice for the residents of the notorious Five Points neighborhood. His secret ties to the wealthy son of an industrialist and his friendship with an African-American doctor who assists him in his investigations allow the detective to see the different sides of New York circa 1864. Even if the story falls flat, at least we'll get to see some more of those awesome period costumes -- they just don't make hats like that today...

Copper airs tonight on BBC America at 10 PM, opposite the series premiere of Married to Jonas -- starring the most desperate Jonas -- on E!. Political Animals airs at 10 PM on USA and the Season 3 premiere of Great Food Truck Race also airs tonight at 10 PM on the Food Network.

If you're in the mood for Italian tonight, check out Part I of the Jerseylicious reunion show at 8 PM on Style and the season finale of Mob Wives: Chicago at 8 PM on VH1. Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition airs at 9 PM on ABC, opposite the Season 2 finale of Falling Skies on TNT.
