Today’s Top Picks


The Outpost

8 p.m. on CW

Talon and Zed (Jessica Green, guest star Reece Ritchie) embark on a quest to return to Talon’s childhood home in a new episode called “Because She’s Worth It.” Elsewhere, Gwynn (Imogen Waterhouse) gets proof of how valuable Tobin (guest star Aaron Fontaine) can be, while Janzo (Anand Desai-Barochia) experiments with plaguelings. Meanwhile, Naya’s (guest star Amita Suman) Prime Order connections come back to haunt her.


Family Food Fight

9 p.m. on ABC – Season Finale

Just two more challenges stand between either of the final two family teams and victory as this entertaining culinary competition series reaches the end of Season 1 with an episode called, logically, “The Finale.” First up is an amuse bouche challenge that is tasted and judged by some familiar faces. The episode climaxes with a “60-45-30” challenge that requires them to use ingredients hand-picked by judges Cat Cora, Graham Elliot and host Ayesha Curry, while coping with severe time restrictions.


Chasing the Cure

9 p.m. ET on TBS, TNT

If you missed last week’s premiere, there’s still plenty of time to jump aboard this groundbreaking new medical series that aims to help people suffering from medical mysteries that have been either undiagnosed or misdiagnosed in earlier physician visits. Anchored by Ann Curry, each live 90-minute episode of this series offers insights from a panel of top medical experts, as well as contributions from the home viewing audience (via social media) who may have valid insights from their own experiences.



10 p.m. ET on CBS – Series Finale

When Sherlock Holmes creator Sir Arthur Conan Doyle wanted to end his literary series about the great detective, he had his hero plummet to his death while fighting an enemy over the Reichenbach Falls. It’s fitting, then, that Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller) ends his TV adventures in this contemporary reboot fighting a tech billionaire named Otto Reichenbach (James Frain) in the series finale, “Their Last Bow.” The teleplay is by executive producer Robert Doherty, who has been with “Elementary” since its 2012 premiere. Lucy Liu also stars.
