'Blood & Oil'

Sun., 9 p.m., ABC
Don Johnson never fades away — and who would ever want him to? He's a North Dakota oil tycoon in this clever old-school soap — a salty wildcatter who still walks and talks like a cowboy, especially when he's kicking the ass of his spoiled brat of a son. Enter Chace Crawford (Gossip Girl) as the up-and-coming outsider who wants to overtake Johnson's empire. Despite its Eighties heart, the show is fast-paced and smart in its frontier mud-and-boots boomtown vibe — a lot like Blue Bloods, except with Sonny Crockett instead of Magnum. Secret weapon: Amber Valletta, the House of Style model who was under-used on Revenge, chewing up the scenery as Johnson's back-stabbing supervixen of a wife.
