BEST BETS

The Washington Times Daily - - TELEVISION -

Celebrity Fam­ily Feud / 8:00pm (7) Sur­vey says: The third sea­son of the game show be­gins here, with Steve Har­vey — who also has his “Fun­der­dome” se­ries premier­ing later in the evening — con­tin­u­ing as host. The first con­test of the hour pits two fe­male su­per­stars, singer Kelly Clark­son and co­me­dian Amy Schumer, and their fam­i­lies against each other.

The 71st An­nual Tony Awards / 8:00pm (13) Broad­way hon­ors its best of the past the­ater sea­son in the yearly cer­e­mony, pre­sented from New York’s Ra­dio City Mu­sic Hall and hosted by past Tony win­ner Kevin Spacey. It’s been an­other sea­son of star power on the Great White Way, from Sally Field (“The Glass Me­nagerie”) to Danny DeVito (“The Price”), and there’s even been some sus­pense: Nom­i­nee Andy Karl in­jured his knee just be­fore the open­ing of the mu­si­cal based on the Bill Mur­ray movie “Ground­hog Day.”

Amer­i­can Grit / 9:00pm (5) WWE icon John Cena re­turns with a new sea­son of this com­pe­ti­tion in “Find Your Grit,” lead­ing 17 con­tenders through gru­el­ing chal­lenges while they’re ad­vised by “The Cadre,” mil­i­tary vet­er­ans who cer­tainly put the play­ers through their paces — and then some.

Those vy­ing for the $250,000 grand prize par­tic­i­pate both as in­di­vid­u­als and team mem­bers, and as with the show’s orig­i­nal round, ex­pect the pro­ceed­ings to be in­fused with a big dose of pa­tri­o­tism.

Steve Har­vey’s Fun­der­dome / 9:00pm (7) With “Lit­tle Big Shots,” “Celebrity Fam­ily Feud” and his week­day talk show, Har­vey has had no short­age of tele­vi­sion time lately. He adds to it again with the pre­miere of this Mark Bur­nett-pro­duced spin on Bur­nett’s own “Shark Tank,” as two en­trepreneurs present their ideas for new prod­ucts or ser­vices — and the stu­dio au­di­ence votes on which should get fund­ing. How­ever, a con­tender can opt to “cash out” for a lesser prize be­fore host Har­vey re­veals the win­ner.

Kevin Spacey hosts the 71st An­nual Tony Awards on CBS.
