1) “Transplant” season-finale, 9 and 10 p.m., NBC. This series started with Bashir Hamed (shown here) – once a battlefront doctor for Syrian rebels – working at a Toronto restaurant. Tragedy struck and he saved a customer (Dr. Bishop) by drilling into his skull; Bishop soon hired him. Now come belated aftershocks. This is a taut and emotional two-parter with about five endings – four powerful and one confusing.
2) Football, 8:05 p.m. ET, Fox. The Dallas Cowboys (3-8) visit the Baltimore Ravens (6-5), in a game that’s part of the COVID-based schedule shuffle. For Fox – which wants to have as much sports as possible – that makes this part of a busy week: Pro football is on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday nights (plus Sunday afternoon), college football is Saturday, wrestling is Friday.
3) “The Bachelorette,” 8-10 p.m., ABC. Maybe we need a law requiring all reality show contestants (and producers) to take lie-detector tests. For now, Tayshia Adams (assisted by former “bachelorette” JoJo Fletcher, administers tests to five of the guys. Also, she has a two-on-one date with feuding guys – Bennett Jordan, 36, a financial consultant, and Noah Erb, 25, a registered travel nurse.
4) “Tell Me a Story,” 9 p.m., CW, and “Big Sky,” 10 p.m., ABC. It’s double jeopardy for Natalie
Alyn Lind, the former “Gifted” and “Goldbergs” actress. On ABC, she’s a kidnap victim, now tending to her younger sister; on CW, she’s a country-music star who was almost killed by a car bomb. Her face (and her) emotions scarred, she’s leans toward the silent strength of her bodyguard. Both shows put way too much emphasis on captives and cruelty, but Lind is a skilled actress who makes us care.
5) “FBI: Most Wanted,” 10 p.m., CBS. A woman witnessed her husband being murdered, then was kidnapped from her home, along with a stash of money. Jess soon realizes this may link to one of his past cases. The episode also introduces a recurring bounty-hunter. She’s played by Amy Carlson, who spent seven years on “Blue Bloods,” before her character (Linda Reagan) was killed between seasons.
