TV TOP picks
9 p.m. on (ATV) (FOX) Traditional Westernstyle eating is in store for more than 100 cowboys and ranchers in the new episode “Moo-vers and Bakers,” as this season’s top 10 chefs ready steak-based meals for that very specific clientele. If the food isn’t to the consumers’ liking, the preparers are sure to hear about it. The losing team retreats to the show’s kitchen to try to regain glory by making tarts. Host Gordon Ramsay is a judge, along with Graham Elliot and Christina Tosi.
2 Last Comic Standing
10 p.m. on (NBC) The competition that has yielded such talents as Amy Schumer, Cristela Alonzo and Gabriel Iglesias starts anew with “The Premiere” of Season 9. Anthony Jeselnik becomes the host as Norm Macdonald joins returnees Roseanne Barr and Keenen Ivory Wayans on the judging panel to seek the funniest new comedian in America. The initial field of 100 contestants ultimately will be winnowed down to the one person who wins $250,000 and a television development deal.
3 Duck Dynasty
10 p.m. on (A&E) After an office prank war threatens to spin completely out of control, Phil “volunteers” staff jokesters Willie, Jase and Jep to help Alan at the church, although they regard it more as punishment than an act of charity, in the new episode “Pranks for Everything.”
10 p.m. on (H&G) An added incentive for home renovation is built in — so to speak — to this new competition series, as nine couples are challenged to fix up a house. It’s in their best interest to do a good job, since they also have to reside in the dwelling during the process ... so the better they fare in improving it, the more comfortable a stay they’ll have. Mike Holmes (“Holmes on Homes”) hosts the show, which comes from a producer of “Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.”
5 Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No!
10 p.m. on (SPC) Why should New York and Los Angeles bogart all the finny fun? Sharks drop from the sky on some of America’s most famous landmarks in this latest entry in the delightfully campy, nolonger-guilty pleasure movie series, which targets Washington D.C. and points south along the Eastern Seaboard to Florida. Ian Ziering returns as chainsaw-wielding hero Fin Shepard; David Hasselhoff and Bo Derek are his parents.
