TV GUIDE: The Monday Playlist: Under the Dome, Major Crimes, Warehouse's Head Case

... SUMMER DRAMA: Try not to roll your eyes too much at the opening scene of TNT's disappointing The Closer spin-off Major Crimes (9/8c), which trots out the old cliché of an amateur ride-along with the seasoned LAPD crime squad. At least this interloper, a cocky young writer for a TV crime drama about corruption within the LAPD, is amusingly played by Ben Feldman, best known as Mad Men's mercurial Ginsberg and Drop Dead Diva's first guardian angel. Naturally, a routine drive with an irritable Sanchez (Raymond Cruz) and the show's consultant "Lt. Mike" Tao (Michael Paul Chan) gets a bit out of control. And as the tricky ensuing case unfolds, one of the better stories Major Crimes has presented, the upstart observer can't help pointing out troubling elements of racial profiling and civil-rights violations. That is, when he isn't busy lusting after Detective Sykes (Kearran Giovanni).
