BEST BETS

Hell’s Kitchen / 8:00pm (5) Suc­cess­ful cook­ing in­volves the right bal­ance of in­gre­di­ents — and that even goes for the num­ber of chefs on a team, as the new episode “Danc­ing in the Grotto” bears out. To keep the squads even, one con­tes­tant moves from one to the other. Guest judges de­cide who wins a slider-mak­ing com­pe­ti­tion, send­ing that group to a party at the Play­boy Man­sion. Melissa Rivers and “Prop­erty Broth­ers” hosts Drew and Jonathan Scott are present for the din­ner ser­vice.

Dr. Ken / 8:31pm (7) Al­li­son’s (Suzy Naka­mura) de­sire to stage the hol­i­day of­fice party at home meets with a cool re­sponse from Ken (Ken Jeong) in the new episode “A Park Fam­ily Christ­mas.” Clark (Jonathan Slavin) finds him­self up­staged when he tries to get boyfriend Con­nor (guest star Stephen Guar­ino) the ideal gift.

Shark Tank / 9:00pm (7) Pa­leo is pure po­etry — at least for an in­no­va­tor from Reno, Ne­vada, who uses verse in his pitch to sell his food-prepa­ra­tion idea to the Sharks — in this episode. A Louisiana fa­ther and son sug­gest their high-tech idea for catch­ing fish hooks. A Seattle woman pro­poses a method for hang­ing art, and a Miami man shows how to con­vert a suit jacket into a tuxedo. The Sharks here are Mark Cuban, Kevin O’Leary, Day­mond John, Lori Greiner and Robert Her­javec.

The Ex­or­cist / 9:02pm (5) As it’s gone along, this se­ries has re­vealed the con­nec­tion An­gela Rance (Geena Davis) has to the orig­i­nal Wil­liam Peter Blatty story — and the devil is de­ter­mined to suc­ceed this time as the drama’s sea­son con­cludes with “Chap­ter Ten: Three Years.” Fa­ther Mar­cus and Fa­ther To­mas (Ben Daniels, Al­fonso Her­rera) are the only hopes for An­gela and her fam­ily, but the threat fac­ing the vis­it­ing Pope (guest star Bruce Dav­i­son) has their at­ten­tion di­vided.

Geena Davis stars in “The Ex­or­cist” Fri­day on Fox. MOVIES
