It's a night for liars. "Pretty Little Liars" (8 p.m., ABC Family, TV-14) gets its own spinoff,

"Ravenswood" (9 p.m., ABC Family, TV-14), following five residents of a small Pennsyl-

vania town seemingly affected by a local curse.

Just to get viewers in the mood, a "Pretty Little Liars" marathon (11 a.m. to 8 p.m., TV-14) runs all day long.

---Deceit also looms large in the new game show "Trust Me, I'm a Game Show Host" (10:30 p.m., TBS, TV-14).

Comedians D.L. Hughley and Michael Ian Black co-host. The game consists of the hosts "selling" a statement as fact. Contestants must discern truth from fiction to move up the ladder to higher cash prizes. Any resemblance to games shows dating back to "To Tell the Truth" is strictly intentional.

---"Chasing Nashville" (10 p.m., Lifetime, TV-PG) follows the lives and budding careers of four singers from isolated pockets of the Appalachians as they seek fame. Because this is a music reality show from the 21st century, look for an emphasis on agents, producers and scouts. And because this is Lifetime, expect a focus on stage mothers -- or in this case, mamas.

---"American Daredevils" (10 p.m. and 10:30 p.m., His-

tory) profiles young, high-octane exhibitionists who hope to follow Evel Knievel's path to publicity. And like many shows of this type, it confuses the word "hero" with that of "entertainer."

---"What if ...? Armaged don 1962" (10 p.m., Military) blends historical documentary footage, talking head commentary and rampant paranoia to reflect on a dark scenario.

It begins with a little-known attempt on President-elect John F. Kennedy's life in

December 1960 and then spec-

ulates on how an accidental President Lyndon B. Johnson would have handled the Cuban Missile Crisis of October 1962.

---TV-themed books available today include "This Is Your Captain Speaking: My Fantastic Voyage Through Hollywood, Faith and Life" (Thomas Nelson), the memoirs of Gavin MacLeod ("The Mary Tyler Moore Show," "Love Boat").

CULT CHOICE

Made as Soviet-Cuban propaganda, the 1964 film "I Am Cuba" (12:45 a.m., TCM) offers a visually stunning explanation for Fidel Castro's revolution. After falling into

obscurity, its singular style found

many champions among American filmmakers, most notably Martin Scorsese and Francis Ford Cop-

pola.
