BEST BETS

The Washington Times Daily - - LIFE -

Tales / 8:00pm (BET) 10:00pm (BET) Hip-hop mu­sic blasted fresh air into the Broad­way mu­si­cal form with the Pulitzer Prize-win­ning “Hamil­ton,” and now it may have a sim­i­lar ef­fect on the world of scripted TV drama. This new an­thol­ogy se­ries com­prises “song sto­ries” that weave clas­sic and cur­rent hip-hop songs into visual nar­ra­tives in­spired by the lyrics of some of this genre’s great­est hits, start­ing with “F... the Po­lice” from N.W.A. in the se­ries pre­miere. The ro­tat­ing cast in­cludes Boris Kod­joe, Elise Neal and Lance Gross.

iZom­bie / 9:00pm (50) The se­ries wraps up its third sea­son with “Look­ing for Mr. Good­brain, Part 2,” which finds Liv (Rose McIver) con­tin­u­ing on her not-too-se­lec­tive path of seek­ing ro­man­tic part­ners — the byprod­uct of her as­sum­ing the per­son­al­ity of some­one Ravi (Rahul Kohli) had ties to. How­ever things turn out here, rest as­sured there is more brain­power to come: The show has been re­newed for Sea­son 4.

Face Off / 9:00pm (Syfy) 12:00am (Syfy) The de­sign artists are at least mildly thrown for a loop when, just a cou­ple of weeks into the sea­son, the show hands them their first un­ex­pected twist (you’ll have to tune in to see what it is) in the new episode “Di­vide & Con­quer.” Their chal­lenge for the episode is to cre­ate some en­chant­ing fairy tale char­ac­ters. Ac­tress El­iz­a­beth Mitchell stops by to serve as a guest judge.

Team Ninja War­rior / 10:00pm (USA) 1:01am (USA) This hit re­al­ity com­pe­ti­tion se­ries, part of the “Amer­i­can Ninja War­rior” fran­chise, wraps up an­other sea­son in the new “Fi­nals Week 2.” Hosts Matt Ise­man and former NFL star Ak­bar Gba­jabi­amila call the ac­tion as the fi­nal teams com­pete on side-by-side ob­sta­cle cour­ses through a se­ries of daunt­ing phys­i­cal chal­lenges de­signed to test en­durance and speed.
