1) “Grown-ish,” 8 p.m., Freeform. Zoey’s grand plan – a Mexican resort party before the senior year – imploded last week. She and Aaron had a drunken wedding … then were arrested during beach sex. Ana raged at Javi, after reading his phone messages. Doug and Lucca (shown here) went with some “hot ladies” … and ended up at a 15th-birthday party. Now some of it gets settled, in a terrific episode. The A-to-Z (Aaron and Zoey) scenes ripple with humor, hurt and more, beautifully written and performed.
2) “Good Girls,” 9 p.m., NBC. A week from the season-finale (also the series-finale, because the show’s been canceled), Beth has huge obstacles in her city council campaign. There’s her husband, secretly scheming to convict her … and the gang leader, ready to take her money … and her opponent, livid about Beth’s strip club. It’s an hour filled with strong twists and makeshift solutions.
3) “The Outpost” season-opener, 9 p.m., CW. When this began, Talon seemed to be the last of her clan. Wandering alone (but with special powers), she found the outpost, ruled by Queen Gwynn (also known as Rosmund). Much changed in the third-season finale. Talon met and saved her father; both returned via portal, in time to help save their friends. Gwynn/Rosmund had a heroic death and her people bowed to Talon. Now Garret tries to convince her to take the throne; also, a mysterious assassin looms.
4) LEGO time, 8:30 p.m., Freeform and 9 p.m., Fox. Freeform has the “LEGO Movie,” a nifty blend of animation and witty writing. That happens to cross over with Fox’s “LEGO Masters,” which is in an auto mood. First, contestants try to re-create host Will Arnett’s Lamborghini from memory; then they make remote-controlled car for a demolition derby.
5) “Magnolia Network” debut, Discovery+. It’s another huge jump in the cascading world of streaming networks – this time centering on the amiable Chip and Joanna Gaines. In January, they’ll have their own cable channel, taking over DIY. And starting today, this streaming hub is packed. Today, it has new episodes of her “Magnolia Table” and their “Fixer Upper: Welcome Home,” plus all 80 previous “Fixer Upper” episodes, and the start of 15 more series. There’s more coming, each week.
