1 Rise of the Ma­chines

8 p.m. on (DIS)

A new episode called “Mega Dig­ger” takes view­ers to a Cana­dian des­ti­na­tion — Cop­per Moun­tain mine in Bri­tish Columbia — to demon­strate the ex­tra­or­di­nary tech­nol­ogy of one of the world’s largest dig­gers, the Ko­matsu PC8000, which can shovel 27,000 tons of cop­per ore in less than four days. The episode also uses state-of-the-art CGI tech­nol­ogy to re­veal how the ma­chine’s in­ner work­ings man­age this im­pres­sive work­load.

2 So You Think You Can Dance

9 p.m. on (ATV) (FOX)

A new episode is ti­tled “Top 18 Per­form and Elim­i­na­tion,” but there will be only 16 dancers left in the com­pe­ti­tion by the time the two-hour show ends. View­ers’ votes de­ter­mine which two de­part, and judges Paula Ab­dul, Jason Derulo and Nigel Lyth­goe will get their say as well. The re­spec­tive per­for­mances of street dancers and stage dancers re­mains in­ter­est­ing, given what the se­ries’ theme is this sea­son. Cat Dee­ley is the host.

3 Ban­ished

9 p.m. on (CBC)

This com­pelling new drama se­ries is set in 1788 in the first Bri­tish pe­nal colony in New South Wales, where con­victs live along­side Royal Navy marine guards and their of­fi­cers: 100 men guard­ing 1,000 pris­on­ers, and five men for ev­ery woman. In the se­ries pre­miere, the colony rules are tested when pris­oner El­iz­a­beth Quinn (MyAnna Bur­ing, “Rip­per Street”) is found in the men’s quar­ters. Orla Brady (“Amer­i­can Odyssey”), Rus­sell Tovey (“Be­ing Hu­man”) and Ju­lian Rhind-Tutt (“Lucy”) also star.

4 The Bach­e­lorette

9 p.m. on (ABC)

There’s been a lot of cry­ing on this show this sea­son, and only some of it has been done by “Bach­e­lorette” Kait­lyn Bris­towe. It’s per­fectly rea­son­able, then, to ex­pect more tears to be shed as she makes her de­ci­sion be­tween the last two re­main­ing can­di­dates for her heart in this fi­nale of the show’s 11th round. The tra­di­tional post­mortem, the “Af­ter the Fi­nal Rose” spe­cial, fol­lows im­me­di­ately. As usual, Chris Har­ri­son is the host of both pro­grams.

5 Mike & Molly

9:30 p.m. on (CBS)

A big pro­fes­sional event for Molly ( Melissa McCarthy) trans­lates into trou­ble at home in “Cock­tails and Calamine.” She’s be­yond ex­cited about the party her pub­lisher is stag­ing for her and Peggy (Rondi Reed), but she wor­ries how Mike (Billy Gardell) might fare there. When she doesn’t in­vite him, bruised feel­ings are the in­evitable re­sult. Edie McClurg (“Fer­ris Bueller’s Day Off”) guest stars. Swoosie Kurtz and Katy Mixon also star.
