1) “Housebroken” season-finale, 9:01 p.m., Fox. Clever enough for grown-ups, yet silly enough for kids, this animated show has been a summer surprise. Honey (Lisa Kudrow) is a wise poodle who holds group-therapy sessions (shown here) for neighborhood animals. Beneath her calm exterior is a lust for the wild world of Coyote. Now she has a night with him … and a change-of-heart. She and Chief – a St. Bernard with no cares and few thoughts – are in mortal danger; the group tries to save them.
2) “9/11: One Day in America,” 9-10:46 p.m., National Geographic Channel, rerunning at 12:46 a.m.. Here’s the mid-point of a brilliant, three-night mini-series. Using footage from that day – plus some new interviews with survivors – it weaves a story of terror, heroism and luck.
3) “American Ninja Warrior,” 8-10 p.m., NBC. It’s time for the finals. In all, 68 people have qualified; by the end of next week’s episode, we’ll see the new champion.
4) “Bob (Hearts) Abishola,” 8:30 and 9:30 p.m., CBS. For the third straight week, CBS doubles up on “Bob” and skips “United States of Al,” the good-hearted show about an Afghan refugee. Tonight’s first rerun has Abishola befriending her future sister-in-law Christina; the second – an excellent one – finds the obedient Dule rebelling when his mother won’t let him visit Nigeria with his father.
5) “My Life is Murder,” any time, www.acorn.tv. Forget all those dark, dingy British mysteries. The first season, set in Australia, was aglow in bright colors and metro zest. The second season moves to New Zealand (the homeland of star Lucy Lawless), but retains the visual oomph … especially when the buoyant Madison moves in to be her assistant. All of that zest is needed, because the opening murder story is quite preposterous; even then, “Murder” is kind of fun.
