“Haven” (10 p.m., Syfy): Preview clips for Season 4 of “Haven” show lots of things blowing up. Clearly, the town inspired by Stephen King is a dangerous place. Maybe they should put a dome over it.
“Real Time with Bill Maher” (10 p.m., HBO): This show might have interesting guests and provocative discussions, but it also has the world’s slowest-loading website, which makes it frustrating to find any information about the new season, which begins tonight.
