1) “Good Trouble,” 10 p.m., Freeform. What began as a romp – two foster sisters, starting their big-city lives – has become intense … and surprisingly well-played. Tonight, that starts in the lush penthouse where Callie lives with her boyfriend (shown here in a previous episode); a crisis arrives. Also, Mariana probes the e-mail that alleges reverse-sexism at work … Malika is squeezed by family pain … Gael shares his anguish … and Alice finds a brew of sex, comedy and competition. That sounds like a lot, but the writing and the young actors show subtle skill.
2) “Party of Five,” 9 p.m., Freeform. Here’s the opposite of the show it precedes. While “Good Trouble” gives its characters real crises, “Party” has ones that feel forced and manufactured. Characters force themselves into artificial woe. That was true two weeks ago, when Emilio walked out on his band … and last week, when Lucia, 16, imagined a romance with an older woman … and this week, in what should have been a brief-but-joyous reunion in Mexico. Someone else, we find, has sabotaged lives.
3) “The Masked Singer,” 8 p.m., Fox. Early in each edition, the panel dumps and unmasks the ringers – the non-singers. Ousted from “Group A” were Lil Wayne, Drew Carey and, somehow, music great Chaka Kahn. The other three from that group will be among the nine semi-finalists. Last week, skateboarder Tony Hawk was the first person ousted from “Group B.” Tonight, the others – Kitty, Mouse, Frog, Taco and Banana – are back.
4) “Chicago Fire” and “Chicago P.D.,” 9 and 10 p.m., NBC. It was almost four years ago that Sean Roman left the police department for a job in California. Since then, the actor who plays him (Brian Geraghty) hasn’t been seen much. (He has a supporting role, however, in the upcoming “Fugitive” series.) Now Sean is back, looking for his sister. At first, he works with firefighter Sevaride to probe opioid overdoses; then this becomes a police homicide probe.
5) “SEAL Team” return, 9 and 10 p.m., CBS. With its surplus of action shows, CBS can alternate and avoid reruns. “SEAL Team” ran 10 episodes this fall, then stepped aside for the final, 10-episode season of “Criminal Minds.” Now the team has eight more episodes and lots of trouble. The widowed Jason (David Boreanaz) has distractions at home, involving his girlfriend and his daughter; now he’s leading a rescue mission in Caracas. The operations center there is attacked, forcing tech people to become warriors.
6 (yes, one more than usual): “It’s Personal With Amy Hoggart” debut, 10 p.m., Tru TV (rerunning at midnight and on other days) and TBS. Hoggart is a charming comedian who did bits on Samantha Bee’s show. On this one (produced by Bee) she helps real people “because life is hard and I’m nice.” In the opener – a guy whose anxiety cripples his job search – she has bizarre solutions. It’s a so-so episode, with a fascinating interlude: Hoggart goes to rural Scotland to meet a 71-year-old woman who’s never felt fear or pain.
