1 Ex­tant

8 p.m. on (GLO); 11 p.m. on (CITV) (CBS)

How much can as­tro­naut Molly Woods (Halle Berry) trust bounty hunter JD Richter (Jeffrey Dean Mor­gan)? Her value to him — at least for the time be­ing — is equal to her use­ful­ness in help­ing him solve a mur­der and col­lect the re­ward in the new episode “Mor­phoses.” Richter de­vel­ops doubts about her sta­bil­ity as they in­ves­ti­gate another preg­nant woman dis­play­ing strange symp­toms. Guest stars in­clude Hi­larie Bur­ton, ac­tor Mor­gan’s real-life part­ner.

2 MasterChef

9 p.m. on (ATV) As the ti­tle of the new episode “Gor­don’s Great­est Hits” sug­gests, some of Chef Gor­don Ram­say’s sig­na­ture dishes give the re­main­ing con­tes­tants their chal­lenges. First, they taste his Beef Welling­ton, then have to repli­cate it ... and if that seems tough, wait un­til the next round. In that, they have to pre­pare his scal­lops with puree of English peas, ba­con and quail eggs, fin­ished with shaved truf­fles. That’s very likely not some­thing they make all the time.

3 Crim­i­nal Minds

10 p.m. on (CBS) Se­ries co-star Thomas Gib­son turns di­rec­tor again with “Lock­down,” which puts his char­ac­ter Hotch and the other mem­bers of the BAU on the search for the killers of two guards at a Texas max­i­mum-se­cu­rity prison. They look within the fa­cil­ity for the sus­pect ... or sus­pects, since they come to be­lieve there could be more than one. Wil­liam Rags­dale (“Jus­ti­fied ”) guest stars. Joe Man­tegna, She­mar Moore and Jen­nifer Love He­witt also star.

4 Celebrity Wife Swap

11 p.m. on (ABC) Sight un­seen, we’ll bank on this new episode be­ing one of the most dis­tinc­tive this se­ries has pre­sented yet, given the two per­son­al­i­ties who swap house­holds: Os­car- and Emmy-win­ning sit­com icon Cloris Leach­man (“Phyl­lis”) and ac­tress-singer Pia Zadora (“But­ter­fly”). Any­one who’s ever seen Leach­man in ac­tion knows she’s not shy, so the mind bog­gles over how she may re­spond if she be­comes dis­pleased while tem­po­rar­ily stay­ing at Zadora’s res­i­dence.
