1) “The Rookie: Feds,” 9 and 10 p.m., ABC. A week before it starts the second half of its season, “Feds” lets us catch up. First is the series opener: When Simone (Niecy Nash, shown here), a former school counselor, starts work at the FBI, Garza assigns her to paperwork; she resists. The rest defies credibility, yet is thoroughly entertaining. Then the most recent episode: Garza is accused of being a mole; Simone and others link to clear his name.
2) “American Masters: Groucho & Cavett,” 8-9:30 p.m., PBS. Grouch Marx was already 70, a show-business legend; Dick Cavett was 25, fresh from Nevada, by way of Yale. They had a small friendship, boosted by a week when Marx was guest host of “Tonight,” where Cavett worked. Later, Marx would visit Cavett’s own talkshow, with portions shown here. The result is so-so by “Masters” standards, but offers key glimpses of 1.6 comedy geniuses.
3) “The Resident,” 8 and 9 p.m., Fox. Next week, this above-average show returns to air the final three episodes of a shortened season. First, here are the two most-recent episodes, filled with crises. Padma is missing, leaving Austin desperate to find a babysitter before he performs surgery. Bell, who criticized the governor, faces fierce attacks. Cade’s dad is in rehab, putting on a false front. And the father of Conrad’s late wife finally returns, in agony.
4) “Ocean Emergency: Currents of Hope,” 8-10 p.m., CW. Albert II has long been an ocean advocate and has been the sovereign prince of Monaco for 17 years. He also has show-business roots – his mother was movie star Grace Kelly. Still, at 64 this is reportedly the first time he’s hosted a TV show; it deals with crises in the oceans and possible solutions.
5) ALSO: ESPN has four straight bowl games today — at noon and at 3:15, 6:45 and 10:15 p.m. And movies are led by “Speed” (1994), 7:25 p.m., Syfy; and “Crazy Rich Asians” (2018), 8 p.m., TNT; plus “Maltese Falcon” (1941) and “Charade” (1963), 6:15 and 8 p.m. ET, Turner Classic Movies.
