“The Rookie” (9 p.m., ABC): Nolan’s (Nathan Fil­lion) day gets off to a no­tably bad start when he learns that his iden­tity has been stolen, a frus­trat­ing turn of events that could jeop­ar­dize his po­si­tion as a po­lice of­fi­cer in the new episode “Hand-Off.” Else­where, Sgt. Casey (Richard T. Jones) like­wise finds him­self painfully tested, as he is forced to con­front his past and tes­tify at the pa­role hear­ing of a man who shot Casey and mur­dered his part­ner. Brent Huff and Seth Green co-star.

“Henry Dan­ger” (9:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m., 3:30 p.m., 6 p.m., Nick­eldeon): The ju­ve­nile ad­ven­ture-com­edy about a teenager who be­comes side­kick to a su­per­hero ends its five-year run with the se­ries fi­nale “The Fate of Dan­ger: Part II,” in which Kid Dan­ger and Cap­tain Man (Jace Nor­man, Cooper Barnes) bat­tle the vil­lain­ous Drex (Tommy Walker) on top of a blimp to stop him from eras­ing Swellview’s mem­ory of Cap­tain Man. When the blimp aims straight for the Swellview Baby Hos­pi­tal, one hero must stay be­hind to save the day. A spinoff, “Dan­ger Force,” premieres on Fri­day.

“The Great­est Show­man” (7 p.m., 9 p.m., FX): Aussie film­maker Michael Gracey made a very big splash with his fea­ture di­rec­to­rial de­but on this 2017 block­buster, which over­came mixed re­views to be­come the fifth-high­est-gross­ing live-ac­tion mu­si­cal of all time. Crit­ics mainly took is­sue with how much artis­tic li­cense the movie took with the real-life saga of P.T. Bar­num, played by Hugh Jack­man, but au­di­ences clearly were swept away by the sheer spec­ta­cle and en­gag­ing cast, which also in­cludes Zac Efron, Michelle Wil­liams and Zen­daya. The song “This Is Me” was nom­i­nated for an Os­car.

“When Calls the Heart” (7 p.m., Hall­mark): In the new episode “An Un­ex­pected Gift,” the whole com­mu­nity is abuzz when a mys­tery ad­mirer leaves a bou­quet of flow­ers on El­iz­a­beth’s (Erin Krakow) doorstep. She sus­pects ei­ther Nathan (Kevin Mc­Garry) or Lu­cas (Chris McNally) may be be­hind the mys­te­ri­ous de­liv­ery. Else­where, Rose­mary and Lee (Pas­cale Hut­ton, Ka­van Smith) or­ga­nize bach­e­lor and bach­e­lorette par­ties for Jesse and Clara (Aren Buch­holz, Eve Bourne). Jack Wag­ner and Martin Cummins also star.

“Killer Dream Home” (7 p.m., 11:01 p.m., Life­time): Jules and Josh are over the moon when they find what looks very much like their dream house on a mag­nif­i­cent es­tate in this 2020 thriller. Ea­ger to move in, they hire Mor­gan, a beau­ti­ful dec­o­ra­tor, to han­dle the in­te­rior design. What they don’t know is that Mor­gan has a se­cret per­sonal his­tory with the house — and she lit­er­ally would kill to make it her own. Ma­iara Walsh, Eve Mauro, John DeLuca and Brooke But­ler star.

“Dun­canville” (7:30 p.m., FOX): Jack and An­nie (voices of Ty Bur­rell, Amy Poehler) try to rekin­dle the pas­sion of their youth by vis­it­ing a 1980s-themed club to cel­e­brate their an­niver­sary, but wind up real­iz­ing their ma­tu­rity may not be so bor­ing after all in the new episode “Sis­ter, Wife.” Else­where, Jing (voice of Joy Os­man­ski) makes Dun­can (Poehler again) “marry” her, but their faux-union quickly be­comes fraught with very real mar­i­tal prob­lems. Mean­while, Kim­berly (voice of Riki LInd­home) acts out to get at­ten­tion.
