Today’s Top Picks


Brain Games

8 p.m. ET on NATGEO – Season Premiere
Actors Kristen Bell (“The Good Place”) and Dax Shepard (“Bless This Mess”) face off in games designed to illustrate the differences between female and male brains in the Season 8 opener of this Hollywood reboot of the classic quiz show. Keegan-Michael Key (“Key & Peele”) serves as host with Rebel Wilson (“The Hustle”), Anthony Anderson (“black-ish”) and New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees also among the celebrity participants. Mentalist Lior Suchard assists with the brain games and challenges. Another new episode follows.


Home Town

9 p.m. ET on HGTV – Season Premiere

The Season 4 premiere sees Hollywood come to Mississippi as an actor and his wife, who have fallen in love with the small-town charm, want to make an investment in their new community. The couple asks Erin and Ben Napier to help them find a historical home with “good bones” that could use a colorful makeover — on an “all-in” budget of $75,000.


Spy Games

10 p.m. ET on BRAVO – Series Premiere
Mia Kang hosts this decidedly offbeat reality competition series that’s inspired by an actual World War II espionage program named Station S. In this game version, 10 contestants share quarters on a compound, where former intelligence professionals train them in spycraft, which they then use to spy and gather intel on their rivals and other targets. The ultimate winner takes home a $100,000 jackpot. The premiere challenges the players to infiltrate a black-tie gala and locate a designated contact.



10 p.m. ET on WGNA - Season Premiere
Season 2 action resumes in a premiere called "Harley Wears a Wig," which sees Harley (Jerry O'Connell) now an official private investigator and trying to help a local man (Colm Feore) find his missing wife. However, this kidnapping comes with a surprising twist. Lyriq Bent joins the cast as the new police chief; Kristian Bruun and Sydney Poitier Heartsong also star.
