BEST BETS

The Washington Times Daily - - TELEVISION -

Rose­wood / 8:00pm (5) The probe of a schoolteacher’s death leads Rose­wood and Villa (Mor­ris Chest­nut, Jaina Lee Or­tiz) to hu­man traf­fick­ers in the new episode “Am­paro & the Amer­i­can Dream.” The de­tec­tives’ re­la­tion­ship is im­pacted by some­thing they learn about Slade (Ed­die Cib­rian). Sam Hunt­ing­ton con­tin­ues his guest role. Lorraine Tous­saint, Gabrielle Den­nis, Anna Kon­kle and Domenick Lom­bar­dozzi also star.

Craft in Amer­ica / 9:00pm (26.4) Sev­eral months af­ter it be­gan, the pro­gram’s eighth sea­son resumes with the new episode “Na­ture,” pro­fil­ing five artists who make sure to in­cor­po­rate el­e­ments of the nat­u­ral world into their work. For in­stance, North Carolina sculp­tor Pa­trick Dougherty uses twigs and branches to ad­dress en­vi­ron­men­tal is­sues, while Iowa crafter Mary Merkel-Hess paper and paint to cre­ate bas­ket-like ob­jects. Also, a visit to Ver­mont shows the wood­work of Michelle Holzapfel.

Yukon Men / 9:00pm (Dis­cov­ery) 11:01pm (Dis­cov­ery) Still re­cov­er­ing from last fall’s rag­ing wild­fire that nearly wiped their re­mote town of Tanana off the map, the char­ac­ters on this hit re­al­ity show face what may be their big­gest chal­lenge yet as the show opens Sea­son 6. Sit­u­ated 130 miles from the near­est city, Tanana pre­vi­ously has been ac­ces­si­ble only by air­plane or boat, but af­ter those years of iso­la­tion, a po­lar­iz­ing new road con­nects the town with the city of Fair­banks — thus open­ing the re­gion to en­croach­ment from the out­side world.

An­i­mals / 11:30pm (HBO) 1:30am (HBO) An­other new episode called “Rats” fea­tures two teenage ro­dents named Phil and Mike and a sce­nario that seems even darker than usual: The young rats want to ex­ploit a hu­man baby for profit. Else­where, two bees find them­selves com­pet­ing for the “love” of a tulip.

Sa­muel Hunt­ing­ton stars in “Rose­wood” Fri­day on Fox.
