BEST BETS

The Washington Times Daily - - LIFE -

MasterChef / 8:00pm (5) Any sea­son of this show in­cludes mys­tery-box chal­lenges as el­e­ments, and the first of those arises in the new episode “Amer­ica’s Gro­cery Bag.” That ti­tle makes sense be­cause the “mys­tery” in­gre­di­ents turn out to be very com­mon in many kitchens, but the top 20 con­tes­tants have to use those to make a dish that im­presses the judges — who in­clude Gor­don Ram­say (also the host of the se­ries), Christina Tosi and Aaron Sanchez.

Ar­row / 8:00pm (50) WWE fig­ure Cody Rhodes brings his brawn to the role of a drug dealer who be­comes the quarry of Wild Dog (guest star Rick Gon­za­lez) — who, in Oliver’s (Stephen Amell) view, isn’t ready for the bat­tle — in “A Mat­ter of Trust.” Ul­ti­mately, Oliver has to pick up the pur­suit him­self to en­sure that mat­ters turn out as they should. Gre­gory Smith (“Rookie Blue”) di­rected the story. Emily Bett Rickards also stars.

Speech­less / 8:30pm (7) It’s time for the fam­ily’s yearly road trip, and Maya (Min­nie Driver) isn’t happy that Ray (Ma­son Cook) has planned part of the usu­ally im­promptu itin­er­ary in ad­vance. At­ti­tudes change when a med­i­cal emer­gency arises en route. Jimmy (John Ross Bowie) is de­ter­mined to con­tinue his va­ca­tion habit of not spend­ing any­thing. Dy­lan (Kyla Kenedy) wor­ries af­ter hear­ing a for­tune teller’s pre­dic­tions. Micah Fowler also stars.

Blood Drive / 10:00pm (Syfy) 3:00am (Syfy) Pay at­ten­tion to the first word of that ti­tle, kids, be­cause this new sci-fi ac­tion se­ries is def­i­nitely not for the faint of heart — or stom­ach. Tonight’s pre­miere sets up the premise, as the last good cop (Alan Ritch­son) in Los Angeles finds him­self forced to join a cross-coun­try death race. His un­will­ing part­ner? A tough lady (Christina Ochoa) whose Ca­maro lit­er­ally runs on blood. Thomas Do­minique co-stars.
