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.
