BEST BETS

The Washington Times Daily - - LIFE - TMS MOVIE RAT­INGS:

Big Brother / 8:00pm (13) You prob­a­bly know the drill by now — and if you don’t, the new­est “house­mates” surely do. In this two-hour sea­son pre­miere, they en­ter the Big Brother House, iso­lat­ing them from ev­ery­one else ex­cept host Julie Chen. Al­liances will be made and be­tray­als will be com­mit­ted. OK, we’re just guess­ing at that ... but it’s a pretty ed­u­cated guess, based on ear­lier rounds of the con­test. As usual, the show will be broad­cast thrice weekly (also on Thurs­days and Sun­days).

Mod­ern Fam­ily / 9:00pm (7) Martin Short guest stars in “Blind­sided” as a vet­eran mar­keter who con­veys his pro­fes­sional the­o­ries to pro­mo­tions novice Ha­ley (Sarah Hy­land). Luke and Manny’s (Nolan Gould, Rico Ro­driguez) com­pe­ti­tion to be­come se­nior-class president prompts a ri­valry be­tween their fam­i­lies. Cam (Eric Ston­estreet) takes ac­tion to en­sure that his star foot­ball player won’t have to leave the area. Ed O’Neill, Julie Bowen and Jesse Tyler Ferguson also star.

This Is Us / 10:00pm (4) Mov­ing back in time again, “The Game Plan” — which re­veals the his­tory be­hind the fam­ily’s pas­sion­ate sup­port of the Pitts­burgh Steel­ers — finds then-child­less Jack and Re­becca (Milo Ven­timiglia, Mandy Moore) de­bat­ing start­ing a fam­ily. Kevin (Justin Hart­ley), mean­while, dis­cov­ers that the script for his part in the play is rel­e­vant to his own life.

Broadchurch / 10:00pm (BBC) De­tec­tive Inspector Alec Hardy (David Ten­nant) and De­tec­tive Sgt. El­lie Miller (Olivia Col­man) re­turn with a new case as this ac­claimed mys­tery tril­ogy opens its third and fi­nal sea­son. The pair re­spond to a call from Tr­ish Win­ter­man (Julie Hes­mond­haigh), who re­ports that she has been sex­u­ally as­saulted. A rape exam con­firms her claim, but the ques­tions of where, when and by whom she was at­tacked re­main un­clear.
