1) “Modern Family,” 9 and 10 p.m., ABC, and more. In giddy stretches of the 1990s, a network would have 16-18 situation comedies. And next week? Counting everything (except cartoons), the broadcast networks will have a total of four sitcoms. Really. CBS and NBC had already replaced theirs with summertime reality; next Tuesday, most of ABC’s sitcoms will be replaced by the “Bachelorette” finale. So savor these laughs while you can,including “Modern Family” (shown here in a graduation episode), plus “The Connors” (8 p.m.), “American Housewife” (8:30) and “Black-ish” (9:30 and 10:30).
2) “Cash Pad” debut, 10 p.m. ET, CNBC, rerunning at midnight. OK, some reality shows can be kind of fun. This one has a zesty, do-it-yourself concept and two attractive people doing it themselves. JoJo Fletcher was the 2016 “Bachelorette”; Jordan Rodgers, now her fiance, was her choice. He’s been a quarterback (like his brother Aaron); she’s been a pre-med student, but now they seem to do this well: They lease small units and transform them into quirky homes for the vacation-rental market.
3) “Pandora,” 8 p.m., CW. The first episode wasn’t bad; this second one, alas, is. After her family and village were killed by an air strike, Jax is a student at the space academy, But unlike the opener, this hour has a cardboard villain, a too-easy rescue and stiff dialog. Really, when was the last time you heard a good friend use the phrase “serpent-tongued Mephistopheles”?
4) “Animal Kingdom,” 9 p.m., TNT, rerunning at 10:01. The last job went bad, with another crew robbing their robbery. (Hey, is there no honor here?) The guys are battered, bitter … and unsure about Smurf, the mother/grandmother who led them into this life. Is she dying? Dead? Just gone? “It’s Smurf – who knows?” one guy says. Surprises loom, in a darkly well-crafted hour.
5) “Blood & Treasure,” 10 p.m., CBS. Two weeks before the season-finale, the search for a stolen artifact (Cleopara’s sarcophagus) takes Danny and Lexi ot a dangerous place –the Bermuda Triangle.
