Flip or Flop

8:30 p.m. on HGTV

The revisited vintage episode “Risky Business: Money Mirage” finds hosts Christina and Tarek taking a gamble on a house in Irvine, Calif., which they decide to buy sight unseen. They soon start to get nervous about the viability of this flip, though, because after opening up the tiny kitchen and updating the master bedroom, there’s still a lot left to do with a rapidly shrinking budget.


Mountain Men

9 p.m. ET on HISTORY – Season Premiere

This rugged reality series opens Season 9 with a two-hour premiere that opens with “Hunt or Be Hunted.” As winter arrives in the Tobacco Root Mountains of Montana, tracker Jake Herak’s first lion hunt nearly ends in tragedy. Meanwhile, in the Northwest, trapper Tom Oar and his wife, Nancy, confront a major surge in the local population of coyotes. Immediately following is “Bloody Harvest,” in which Eustace Conway of North Carolina and his apprentice, Raleigh Avery, try to restore an antique buzz saw.


Summer Rush

10 p.m. ET on FOOD – Series Premiere

Filmed before the coronavirus pandemic turned the restaurant world upside-down, this new four-part reality series follows a family of restaurateurs in Lake George, N.Y., as they work to keep their three restaurants running smoothly during their busiest time of year. Husband and wife Buddy Foy Jr. and Jennifer Foy frequently disagree over decisions at Chateau by the Lake, the high-end eatery specializing in international flavors. Jesse Foy and wife Jessica run Diamond Point Grille, a burger and fish joint, and parents Buddy Foy Sr. and wife Cate own Cate’s Italian Garden.


Vagrant Queen

11 p.m. ET on SYFY – Series Finale

Syfy hasn’t made a formal announcement yet, but it looks like it’s going to be “one and done” for this series adaptation of a comic book series by Magdalene Visaggio and Jason Smith, starring Adriyan Rae as Elida, a former queen whose throne was stolen during her childhood. After airing three ratings-challenged episodes, Syfy moved “Queen” out of its primetime schedule, prompting speculation the remaining episodes were being burned off in late-night. In tonight’s Season 1 finale, Elida makes a last push to stop the villainous Lazaro (Paul Du Toit).
