“Brooklyn Nine-Nine” and “The Last Man on Earth,” 9-10 p.m.,
reality-show disaster is good news for viewers. In its second (and
final) week, “Knock Knock Live” finished 82nd in the
Nielsen ratings. That was bad news for Fox -- which started the
season with the quick collapse of “Utopia”; it's good news for
viewers, who get reruns of better shows.
Each has a “Saturday
Night Live” alumnus, offbeat humor and honors – Golden Globes for
“Nine-Nine” and star Andy Samberg; Emmy nominations for “Last
Man” and star Will Forte. Tonight, we see one crook elude Samberg's
undercover trap; then Forte's bungle endangers the future of mankind.
“Face Off,” 9 p.m., Syfy.
While some reality
shows crash, this has thrived. It has good contestants (aspiring
movie make-up people), a smart host (McKenzie Westmore, daughter of a
make-up master) and clever challenges.
Tonight is the 100th
episode. Contestants turn couples into zombies; then a marriage
ceremony is conducted by Westmore, who has become an ordained
ALTERNATIVE: “Tyrant,” 10 p.m., FX.
Somehow, Barry has
been able to keep the ultimate secret: He's not dead, after all.
His wife and
children think he is; so does his brother Jamal, the dictator who
left him to die in the desert, after a failed coup. Now insurgents
seem more dangerous than the government; Barry scrambles to link with
Jamal's side and to tell his “widow” that he's alive and (fairly)
Talent,” 8-10 p.m., NBC. The long audition process is finally over;
now the live rounds begin. Tonight, 12 of the 36 acts perform and
viewers vote; on Wednesday, we'll learn which seven will advance.
That process will continue for two more weeks.

CBS. In a rerun, a new murder offers a fresh clue about at bombing 40
“Zoo,” 9 p.m.,
CBS. With Jamie (Kristen Connolly) accused of murder, the team tries
to gather evidence by hacking into a mainframe. Meanwhile, Chloe must
work with her former fiance in Paris.
(1985), 9-11 p.m., Pop. This goofy concept – an ordinary teen
turned all wolfy – keeps drawing good actors. Michael Landon made
“I Was a Teenage Werewolf” in 1957 ... Michael J. Fox made this
likable film ... Jason Bateman did the 1987 series ... and Tyler
Posey stars in the MTV series.
Night,” 10:01 p.m., NBC. The fun parlor games have Jay Pharoah of
“Saturday Night Live” and director Kevin Smith, plus actors Haley
Joel Osment, Brandon T. Jackson, Elisha Cuthbert and Justin Long.
debut, 10:01 p.m., ABC Family. Ten young people start a seven-week
camp run by Tim Draper, who has helped finance some top tech
creations. Draper's approach is goofy, but his students are
interesting. Tony Compasso totally flubs a one-minute pitch session;
his wife Erin Brady does fine at that – which you'd expect: She was
Miss USA in 2013.
10:30 p.m., Comedy Central. Beatrice really can't take the fact that
her true love (who is also her twin brother) is engaged to someone
else. She reverts to babyhood. Also in this neatly offbeat comedy,
set in 1902, their mom becomes addicted to morphine.
