Chicago Fire / 8:00pm (4) As the ti­tle “One Hun­dred” sug­gests, the se­ries marked its 100th episode with this tale, which also com­mem­o­rates the one-cen­tury an­niver­sary of Molly’s — pos­si­bly, since Her­rmann (David Ei­gen­berg) ini­tially has doubts about throw­ing a big cel­e­bra­tion for the oc­ca­sion. Casey and Daw­son (Jesse Spencer, Mon­ica Ray­mund) hit a road­block in try­ing. 90th An­nual Scripps Na­tional

Spell­ing Bee / 8:30pm (ESPN) For the 24th con­sec­u­tive year, ESPN pro­vides live cov­er­age of the fi­nal round of this na­tional spell­ing com­pe­ti­tion for stu­dents ages 5-15, from the Gay­lord Na­tional Re­sort and Con­ven­tion Cen­ter in Na­tional Har­bor, Md., near Wash­ing­ton, D.C. Of­fi­cials have im­ple­mented a few pro­ce­dural chal­lenges in this year’s com­pe­ti­tion, aim­ing to min­i­mize the chance that it will end in a tie. Love

Con­nec­tion / 9:00pm (5) Andy Co­hen con­tin­ues his role as host of the new re­boot of this se­ries with “Episode Two,” as sev­eral more sin­gle peo­ple are sent on blind dates, then re­turn to tell the fa­mously in­quis­i­tive Co­hen and a stu­dio au­di­ence if they made a ”love con­nec­tion” ... or not. Co­hen has said he was weaned on the orig­i­nal, Chuck Wool­ery-hosted ver­sion of the pro­gram, and his own brand of ques­tion­ing (which he honed on “Watch What Hap­pens Live”) gives this edi­tion a twist.

The Amaz­ing Race / 10:00pm (13) Chicago is the end point for the re­main­ing teams as the com­pe­ti­tion’s 29th sea­son con­cludes with “We’re Go­ing to Vic­tory Lane.” Wrigley Field and many of the city’s other fa­mous sites are not only tourist at­trac­tions for the com­peti­tors, they also fac­tor into the chal­lenges in rel­e­vant ways — and will help de­ter­mine who ends up with the $1 mil­lion grand prize. At the hour’s end, host Phil Keoghan pro­nounces who the vic­tors are.
