1) “MasterChef Junior” finale, 8-10 p.m., Fox. This began with 24 home chefs – all of them talented and all (really) ages 8-13. Now we have the final three, each 11. Che Spiotta is from Boiceville, NY,, in the Catskills … Malia Brauer is from Santa Clarita, Cal. … Ivy Angst (shown here with Gordon Ramsay) is from Atlanta and especially interesting: Going by Little Chef Ivy, she’s 3-foot-6, with a form of dwarfism that causes short limbs. She masters the kitchen, with the help of a stool; now she has a shot at a $100,000 prize.
2) “The Bold Type,” 8 p.m., Freeform. For each of the friends, a powerful story is near its peak. It’s election day for Kat’s city council race … and decision time for Jane’s story about an abusive fashion designer. Meanwhile, Sutton nears her rare chance to show her designs to fashion insiders. Most of this is well-done … but torpedoed by a TV cliche: “I have to tell you something,” a guy says, promptly offering something he clearly did NOT have to tell. It’s a lazy device to create an arbitrary plot detour.
3) “The Conners,” 8 p.m., ABC. It’s been a wild ride for this reboot – eight episodes (as “Roseanne”) the first season, to huge ratings … 11 episodes (as “The Conners,” after Roseanne Barr was fired) this year, to not-bad ratings. The good news is that the show has remained sharp and witty … and it’s expected to be near 22 episodes next season. Now the current season begins its summer rerun; tonight it reruns the season-opener … a fun one, despite being about a dead mom and wife.
4) “Modern Family,” 9 and 10 p.m., ABC. The all-rerun line-up gives us a double helping of one of TV’s best comedies. First, Mitchell and Cam are underequipped to help Lily deal with her first period. Then they crash Jay’s annual hiking trip, hoping to spot an elusive bald eagle.
5) “Blood & Treasure,” 10 p.m., CBS. Back in World War II, this series says, Nazis stole the remains of Cleopatra. Now our heroes are told it may be hidden in an Austrian castle.
