Today’s Top 5 Picks


iHeartRadio Music Awards

8 p.m. ET on FOX

Garth Brooks receives the first iHeartRadio Artist of the Decade Award as this star-studded event — broadcast live in many markets from Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles — celebrates the most-played artists and songs on iHeartRadio stations throughout 2018. Alicia Keys receives the iHeartRadio Innovator Award, and Halsey is honored with the iHeartRadio Fangirls Award. Up for song of the year are “Better Now” (Post Malone), “Girls Like You” (Maroon 5 featuring Cardi B), “God’s Plan” (Drake), “Perfect” (Ed Sheeran) and “The Middle” (Zedd, Maren Morris, Grey).



8 p.m. ET on FREEFORM

This fantasy drama goes on a short hiatus following the spring finale “Leverage,” which sees mermaids and townspeople alike joining forces in a highly risky strategy to stop the oil company. Unfortunately, that commendable effort winds up having a devastating effect. With their futures all uncertain, Ben, Maddie and Ryn (Alex Roe, Fola Evans-Akingbola, Eline Powell) come together to share a romantic yet possibly permanent farewell.


Project Runway

8 p.m. ET on BRAVO – Season Premiere

Host and head judge Heidi Klum and avuncular mentor Tim Gunn have moved on to other ventures, but the show they helped guide to Peabody Award-winning success returns to its original network home for Season 17 with a mix of new and familiar faces. Among the latter, Season 4 winner Christian Siriano has inherited Gunn’s mentoring mantle, while Elle editor-in-chief Nina Garcia returns to her seat on the judges panel, joined by fashion designer Brandon Maxwell and journalist Elaine Welteroth. Supermodel Karlie Kloss, the new host, welcomes 16 new designers in tonight’s 90-minute premiere.


Top Chef

9:30 p.m. ET on BRAVO – Season Finale

In the 90-minute Season 16 “Finale,” the final three chefs must create the most unforgettable four-course meal of their lives, but as always there’s one last, completely diabolical twist: Only two of them will get the chance to serve their full menu. Joining host and judge Padma Lakshmi, head judge Tom Colicchio, Nilou Motamed and Graham Elliot at the table are such stellar culinary guests as Food & Wine executive Melanie Hansche, plus chefs Mitsuharu Tsumura, Alexander Smalls, Dan Hong, May Chow and Alvin Leung.


Broad City

10 p.m. ET on COMEDY

“Sleep No More” is the title of this new episode, but it’s also the title of a very real Off-Broadway show that retells the bloody story of Shakespeare’s “Macbeth” in an immersive theater experience. When she and Ilana (Ilana Glazer) pay a visit to the production, this story of conscience-stricken characters resonates strongly for Abbi (Abbi Jacobson), who’s been trying to find the right time to tell her best friend some life-changing news.
