Burden of Truth

8 p.m. ET on CW
Joanna (Kristin Kreuk) has to make some major decisions she wasn’t expecting in the new episode “Family Ties,” prompted largely by her father’s (Alex Carter) response to information that she and Billy (Peter Mooney) have discovered about local steel-mill owner Ben Matheson (David Lawrence Brown). Personal factors also come into play as Joanna determines whether to remain a member of her dad’s firm or act independently in pursuing the case. Star Slade also stars.

Outback – Series Finale

8 p.m. ET on PBS, PBS-HD
“Return of the Wet,” the last of the three installments of the new miniseries, finds the heat wave that affects Island Kimberley impacting all life there. One result is extra peril for people who already take big risks by wading into waters that conceal crocodiles, since many animals also congregate to desperately needed hydration there. Birds also take their chances by migrating in large numbers, since some humans attempt to capture them with nets. Eventually, much-desired rain arrives.


Born This Way

8 p.m. ET on A&E – Season Premiere
This heartwarming unscripted series about a group of young men and women living with Down syndrome but still pursuing their dreams opens Season 4 with eight new episodes airing two per week, back to back, and chronicling a major life event: the wedding of Christina and Angel. The whirlwind of nuptial planning gets under way in the season premiere, “Pursuit of Happiness,” which also sees Rachel taking her own steps toward independence by asking Megan to be her roommate. Another new episode follows.

Gordon Ramsay’s 24 Hours to Hell and Back

9 p.m. ET on FOX – Season Finale
Those of a certain age — or of devotion to Turner Classic Movies — will know the name Sandra Dee. However, it’s a different one who runs the bar and grill that provides Gordon Ramsay and his “Hell on Wheels” with the season-finale mission in this episode set in Sacramento, Calif. Sandra Dee’s Bar-B-Que & Seafood needs a big makeover, caused in part by family ties … and, of course, Ramsay has only 24 hours to accomplish it.


World of Dance

9 p.m. ET on NBC
The fourth round of the Duels fuels this new episode, with the top team in each division getting to choose its own opponent in a dance-off that will see one of the two squads eliminated. Judges Jennifer Lopez, Derek Hough and Ne-Yo make the determination of who stays, with that act remaining in the running — or dancing, as it were — for the $1 million grand prize. Jenna Dewan is the host and a mentor to the dancers.
