1) “Bob (hearts) Abishola,” 8:30 p.m., CBS. Gina Yashere (shown here) has been the semi-secret strengths of this terrific show. She’s a writer and producer, guiding it through the intricacies of Nigerian/American customs; she also co-stars as Kemi. In this dandy rerun, Kemi has lied – or, at least, been slow to tell the truth – to her friend Abishola. And with Bob’s mom remaining ill, her kids insist she should make a will.
2) “No Passport Required,” 9 p.m., PBS. After savoring the fictional Nigerians on CBS (played by actresses with Nigerian roots), we can visit some real people on PBS. In Houston, Chef Marcus Samuelsson samples the food and culture of Nigeria and West Africa. He works with traditional home chefs and with cutting-edge pros.
3) Cartoons, FX and FXX. At tines, these channels seem on a mission to fill our days with clever cartoons. For FXX, that involves the brilliance of “The Simpsons”; today, the “Simpsons Movie” (2007) is at 4 p.m., with the series from 6 to midnight.. Meanwhile, FX has animated movies – “The Peanuts Movie” (2015) is at 11:30 a.m., followed by two fun films that are strong on music – “Rio 2” at 1:30 p.m. and “Sing” at 3:40. Then we get the latest from the “despicable” folks – “Minions” (2015) at 6 p.m., and “Despicable Me 3” (2017) at 8 and 10 p.m.
4) “The Bachelor,” 8-10 p.m., AB C. Who needs Paris or Rome? Tonight, Peter Weber and the 15 remaining bachelors seek romance in … well, Cleveland. One of them (Kelsey) explores the city with him; others go through a football workout with guys from the Browns. Also, ABC promises that one woman “is the target of rage by the others and prompts a revolt the likes of which Bachelor Nation has never seen.”
5) “The Good Doctor,” 10 p.m., ABC. Shaun and Dr. Reznik deal with a terminal cancer patient who is determined to be uninhibited in his final months. And both doctors have key relationship moments – Reznik with her mother and Shaun with Carly.
