1) “The Masked Singer” finale, 8 p.m., Fox. The big surprise came last week, when Barry Zito was unmasked, finishing fourth. He’s now a musician (as his parents and sister have been), but is mostly known as a retired baseball star – a Cy Young Award winner and World Series champion. Now he has topped such pros as Chaka Khan, Bret Michaels, Hunter Hayes and the angelic-voiced Jackie Evancho. Tonight, the show unmasks the final three — Frog (shown here), Turtle and Night Angel –and has a champion.
2) “Ultimate Tag” opener, 9:01 p.m., Fox. Here are top athletes dodging, darting – doing everything we did (in our minds, at least) as kids playing tag. Alongside that, alas, is a lot of grown-up nonsense. The taggers have contrived names (Banshee, Beach Boy, Iron Giantess, Caveman, Spitfire, etc.) and contrived attitudes. The early rounds have little effect on the finale … and in that finale, being tagged has lttle effect on who wins. Still, it’s a flashy diversion at times.
3) “Nova: Eagle Power,” 9 p.m., PBS. Here are creatures even more awesome than the human taggers and eluders. Eagles can spot a rabbit three miles away and zoom 100 to 150 miles an hour to grab it. They can snatch a fish out of the water, barely getting wet. This hour has lots of gorgeous footage, but also views the history, the science and more. We follow baby eagles from before they hatch; we also see rehabilitation efforts and one man’s longtime partnersi9p wih a favorite eagle.
4) “Motherland: Fort Salem” season-finale, 9 p.m., Freeform, rerunning at 10. In this first season, we’ve seen Raelle, Abigail and Tally – each descended from generations of witches – struggle through military training. Now it’s time for graduation and a steep mission. This is beautifully filmed, but exremely dark, visually and emotionally. The result will jolt fans … and merely perplex new viewers.
5) “SWAT” season-finale (10 p.m.) and more, CBS. This was supposed to be a big night, launching a new “Amazing Race” season. CBS made a late decision to hold that until fall, when new shows might be scarce. Instead, it reruns “NCIS” at 8 (a dollhouse re-creates past murders) and “FBI” at 9 (the son of a retired FBI agent has been kidnapped). At 10, drug smugglers have crashed their plane in suburban Los Angeles; also, Luca frets about re-joining the SWAT team.
