BEST BETS

The Washington Times Daily - - TELEVISION -

The Cool Kids / 8:30pm (5) Hank and Mar­garet (David Alan Grier, Vicki Lawrence) have their hearts set on win­ning a new over­size flat-screen TV that’s the grand prize in a corn­hole com­pe­ti­tion, so they’re sorely dis­ap­pointed when it goes to some other res­i­dents in­stead. Af­ter they find out the win­ners ac­tu­ally cheated, how­ever, Char­lie (Martin Mull) helps them mas­ter­mind a “TV Heist” that in­volves break­ing into Al­li­son’s (guest star Artemis Peb­dani) of­fice af­ter lock­ing her in the sauna with Sid (Leslie Jor­dan).

Mid­night, Texas / 9:00pm (4) With crit­i­cal hours slip­ping by, Fiji and Man­fred (Parisa Fitz-Hen­ley, Fran­cois Ar­naud) mount a des­per­ate ef­fort to dis­cover who or — given that we’re talk­ing about this creepy lit­tle town — what is try­ing to kill Bobo (Dy­lan Bruce) in a new episode called “To Witch Hell and Back.”

Din­ers, Drive-Ins and Dives / 9:00pm (Food Net) 12:00am (Food Net) Host Guy Fieri shifts gears into full-blown car­ni­vore mode for “Meaty Mashup,” which takes him to Lit­tle Rock, Ark., where an eatery that used to be a gas sta­tion is now pump­ing bi­son into a bur­rito, along with corn­meal waf­fles piled high with pork. A Viet­namese joint in Santa Rosa, Calif., spe­cial­izes in fan­tas­tic pho from the home coun­try, but also of­fers suc­cu­lent bar­be­cue pork.

Room 104 / 11:30pm (HBO) 2:00am (HBO) Sea­son 2 of this an­thol­ogy series from sib­ling cre­ators Mark and Jay Du­plass pre­mieres tonight with two back-to-back episodes, a for­mat that will con­tinue on sub­se­quent Fri­days. In the first, “FOMO” (an acro­nym for “fear of miss­ing out”), Char­lyne Yi (“House”) stars as Grace, whose close friends Matty and Tanya (Tom Lenk, Pia Shah) take her on a trip to cel­e­brate her 30th birth­day. They’re sur­prised when her sis­ter, Karen (Jen­nifer Lafleur), shows up un­in­vited.
