1 Ex­tant 8 p.m. on (GLO) 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 (CTV) (FOX-R) 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 The Gold­bergs 9:30 p.m. on (ABC-B) Adam’s (Sean Gi­ambrone) de­ci­sion to pur­sue fenc­ing alarms Mur­ray (Jeff Gar­lin) in “As You Wish.” The sit­u­a­tion gets worse when Adam re­veals why he wanted to take up the sport — his in­spi­ra­tion be­ing the movie “The Princess Bride.” Bev­erly (Wendi McLen­don-Covey) de­cides to play match­maker for ed­u­ca­tors linked to Barry and Erica (Troy Gen­tile, Hay­ley Or­ran­tia). Bryan Callen, Ana Gasteyer and Stephen Tobolowsky guest star.

4 Mod­ern Fam­ily 10 p.m. on (ABC-B) Claire and Phil (Julie Bowen, Ty Bur­rell) are sep­a­rated on a plane trip back from a re­union week­end in “Fight or Flight.” She’s in first class and he’s in coach. At Glo­ria’s (Sofia Ver­gara) urg­ing, Jay (Ed O’Neill) teaches Manny (Rico Ro­driguez) to deal with a bully at school. Sal (guest star El­iz­a­beth Banks) gets a baby shower from Mitch, Cam and Pep­per (Jesse Tyler Fer­gu­son, Eric Ston­estreet, guest star Nathan Lane). Penn Jil­lette also guest stars.

5 Celebrity Wife Swap 11 p.m. on (ABC-B) 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.
