1) “MasterChef,” 8 p.m., Fox. Two weeks from its finale, this is down to the final six home chefs. There are four men, ranging from Nick DiGiovanni, 22, to Subha Ramiah (shown here), 54, and two women – a stay-at-home mom (Shari Mukherjee, 34) and a former Army interrogator (Sarah Faherty, 31). Now — in the show’s first global episode – they’re flown to Gordon Ramsay’s flagship restaurant in London, where they serve 36 guests, including his family.
2) “Beauty and the Beast” (1991) and “The Lion King” (1994), 7 and 9 p.m., Freeform. Here are two of Disney’s all-time best cartoon movies, back-to-back. Both were remade into non-cartoons that scored big, but you’ll still want to watch or record the originals.
3) “BH90210,” 9 p.m., Fox. From the start, this has had a great idea — “Beverly Hills, 90210” stars playing fictional versions of themselves – and shaky execution. Ratings were good the first week, but had been cut in half by last week’s fourth episode. Now, a week from the finale, the fictional reboot has been stalled bu a threat; a former co-star is suspected. Also, Tori Spelling frets about a sex scene with Brian Austin Green and the women fume about Jason Priestley’s insensitivity as director.
4) “Modern Family,” 9 p.m., ABC. It’s an all-rerun night for ABC, led by this one. Trying to seem less negative, Claire accidentally seems to approve of her son Luke’s relationship ta work. Also, Phil wants to surprise their daughter Alex at school; he arrives when she’s getting an award she hadn’t mentioned.
5) “Wu-Tang: An American Saga,” any time, Hulu. Bobby Diggs was 7 when he returned home to a tough Staten Island housing project. Fresh from four years with grandparents in rural North Carolina, he was a dreamy kid, trying to fit in. By his teens, he was selling marijuana and organizing rap battles; as a young man, he led hip-hop’s Wu-Tang Clan. He became Rza, linking with Gza, Method Man and more. This isn’t for everyone (the language is very rough), but it dramatizes an interesting story.
