BEST BETS

The Washington Times Daily - - LIFE -

iZom­bie / 9:00pm (50) Some­thing Liv (Rose McIver) eats — namely the brains of some­one from Ravi’s (Rahul Kohli) past — dis­agrees with her in “Look­ing for Mr. Good­brain, Part 1,” the first of a two-part sea­son fi­nale. She starts to get some de­cid­edly not-safe-for­work vi­sions of Ravi, along with the de­sire to sleep with every dude in Seat­tle. Else­where, Ma­jor (Robert Buck­ley) has a huge de­ci­sion to make. David An­ders, Mal­colm Good­win and Aly Michalka also star.

Amer­ica’s War on Drugs / 9:00pm (His­tory Ch) 1:06am (His­tory Ch) The Clin­ton ad­min­is­tra­tion’s sup­port of the North At­lantic Free Trade Agree­ment in­ad­ver­tently opens the door to Mex­i­can car­tels, and the sub­se­quent crack­down on vi­o­lence leads in turn to mass in­car­cer­a­tion in the penul­ti­mate new episode, “Gangs, Prisons & Meth Queens.” As ruth­less car­tels be­gin a bloody war for dom­i­nance, the sis­ter of a celebrity be­comes a suc­cess­ful meth sup­plier in the Mid­west. The minis­eries fi­nale airs to­mor­row night.

Face Off / 9:00pm (Syfy) 12:00am (Syfy) As Sea­son 12 con­tin­ues with its new for­mat that finds the spe­cial-ef­fects makeup artists di­vided into two com­pet­ing “shops,” you can bet that all con­cerned will “bee buzzy” in a new episode called “Hive Mind.” The main chal­lenge tasks the artists with cre­at­ing queen, worker and drone aliens for a fan­tasy race of be­ings who com­pete via a com­mu­nal in­tel­li­gence. McKen­zie West­more is host.

World of Dance / 10:00pm (4) The com­pe­ti­tion enters a new phase in the new episode “The Duels 1,” as the top qual­i­fy­ing acts from each divi­sion choose a ri­val, then face off in a di­rect elim­i­na­tion duel. Upon watch­ing each per­for­mance, judges Jennifer Lopez, Derek Hough and Ne-Yo score each act based on such fac­tors as artistry, pre­ci­sion and ath­leti­cism. The top scor­ing acts move for­ward in the com­pe­ti­tion, putting them one step closer to that $1 mil­lion grand prize.
