TV TOP picks

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - ENTERTAINMENT -

1 The 2015 ESPYs 9 p.m. on (ABC-B) The pres­ence of Joel McHale (“Com­mu­nity,” “Talk Soup”) as host guar­an­tees there will be wise­cracks among the ac­co­lades, as the an­nual sports awards move from ESPN to sis­ter net­work ABC for the first time. Broad­cast from Los An­ge­les’ Mi­crosoft Theater, the event en­com­passes the pre­sen­ta­tions of the Arthur Ashe Courage Award to Cait­lyn Jen­ner, and the Pat Till­man Award for Ser­vice to for­mer Notre Dame bas­ket­ball player and mil­i­tary vet­eran Danielle Green.

2 Arrow 9 p.m. on (ASN) “The Brave and the Bold” wraps up a story that be­gan on “The Flash.” Oliver (Stephen Amell) and his co­horts lo­cate the foe who de­ploys a deadly boomerang, but they find there’s more in­volved. Barry Allen (guest star Grant Gustin) lends help when the vil­lain gets away, and the stakes rise con­sid­er­ably as five bombs are set to ex­plode si­mul­ta­ne­ously through­out the city. Katie Cas­sidy, Colton Haynes and David Ram­sey also star.

3 MasterChef 9 p.m. on (CTV) (FOX-R) “Rice Is Nice” was the ti­tle of a kitschy song of the late 1960s, and the sen­ti­ment also ap­plies to what the cooks must do in the new episode “Rice Rice Baby.” You’ll never guess — well, OK, maybe you will — the ma­jor in­gre­di­ent in a dish they have to whip up in one hour. There will be a big pay­off for the win­ner, with the recipe fea­tured in a ma­jor mag­a­zine. That per­son also will be ex­empt from a sub­se­quent elim­i­na­tion chal­lenge that in­volves “dy­namic duos.”

4. Crim­i­nal Minds 10 p.m. on (CBS-B) Try­ing to de­ter­mine the iden­tity of a se­rial killer in Wis­con­sin proves chal­leng­ing for the team in “Breath Play.” None of the vic­tims have any ap­par­ent link to one another, con­found­ing the pat­tern-seek­ing Rossi (Joe Man­tegna) and his fel­low BAU sleuths. Kate (Jen­nifer Love He­witt) is con­cerned about Meg’s (Hai­ley Sole) sud­den turn in be­hav­ior. Rochelle Aytes (“Mis­tresses”) re­turns as Mor­gan’s (She­mar Moore) girl­friend.

5 Bulls­eye 10:01 p.m. on (FOX-R) Eight peo­ple be­come the fi­nal con­tes­tants this sum­mer to vie for the $50,000 grand prize in the show’s sea­son fi­nale, “Zip Timeline.” As that ti­tle should in­di­cate, mas­ter­ing a zip line is one of the ma­jor chal­lenges posed dur­ing the hour — tak­ing the com­peti­tors on a fran­ti­cally, and cen­trifu­gally, paced trip through “Bulls­eye-ville ” — along with com­pe­ti­tions called “Cen­ter Spin” and “Truck-to-Truck.” Kellan Lutz and God­frey are the hosts.
