TONIGHT’S MUST-SEE: “The Bachelorette” finale, 8 p.m., ABC,
with follow-up at 10.
When Andi Dorfman was on the other end of this, she simply
walked away. Dorfman (then an assistant district attorney in Atlanta) was one
of the final three in “The Bachelor,” when she realized – belatedly? – that Juan
Pablo Galavis, a former soccer player, wasn’t her perfect guy; .she quit.
Now she’s in charge, trying to choose the right guy. Dorfman,
27, could go with Josh Murray, 29, a former baseball pro who also lives in
Atlanta; or Nick Viall, 33, a software sales executive in Chicago.
TONIGHT’S MUST-SEE II: “Under the Dome,” 10 p.m., CBS.
Last week, Big Jim and Rebecca offered their plan to deal
with limited resources – reduce the population. That really didn’t go over
well, so now Julia (Rachelle Lefevere) is in charge.
Meanwhile, Melanie is still trying to figure out who she is
and how she got there. Joe and Norrie help her look for clues on the dome wall.
TONIGHT’S ALTERNATIVE: “Young Hollywood Awards,” 8-10 p.m.,
Kelly Osborne hosts this show, filled with quirky
categories. “Favorite actor” has both hunks (Channing Tatum, Taylor Lautner)
and humor (Johah Hill, Andy Samberg); “favorite actress” has established stars
(Jennifer Lawrence, Kaley Cuoco, Shailene Woodley) and newcomers.
Woodley has two of the “on-screen couple” nods, via
“Divergent” and “The Fault in Our Stars.” (They face the “Glee” guys, the
“Spiderman 2” duo and Sheldon-Amy from “Big Bang Theory.” Her films are up for
“favorite flick,” facing “Maleficent” and sequels to “Hunger Games,” “X-Men”
and “21 Jump Street.”
Other choices include:
“Running Wild with Bear Grylls” debut, 8 p.m., NBC. In cable
shows, Grylls has mastered the art of going solo in the wilderness. Over the
next six weeks, NBC will have him take four actors, a news anchor (Tamron Hall
of “Today”) and an athlete (Deion Sanders). That starts with Zac Efron in the
“MasterChef,” 8 p.m., Fox. The final 12 contestants must
make romantic meals for couples celebrating anniversaries. The winning team
will pass to next week; others must create a recipe for truffles.
“Hotel Hell,” 9 p.m., Fox. As its 90th
anniversary nears, this show says, a hotel faces multiple problems, including
the owner’s alcohol addiction. Gordon Ramsay tries an intervention.
“Mike & Molly,” 9 p.m., CBS. The season started with
Molly abruptly quitting her teaching job. Now Mike, after being wounded, vows
to quit being a cop and savor each day.
“Going Deep,” 9 and 9:30 p.m., National Geographic. Tonight,
we learn how to swat a fly and then how to open a door. Really.
“Two and a Half Men,” 9:30 p.m., CBS. Walden hangs with
Jenny and her young, hard-partying friends.
“Murder in the First,” 10:01 p.m., TNT. The trial of a nasty
tech-magnate is wrapping up now, but the story continues. After tonight, this
richly crafted Steven Bochco series has two more episodes.
