Today’s Top Picks


Burden of Truth

8 p.m. on CW – Season Premiere

Season 3 of this legal drama, which opens a year after the events of Season 2, finds Joanna Chang (Kristin Kreuk) and Billy Crawford (Peter Mooney) working together in Crawford Chang, their boutique law firm. While she’s back home in Millwood for a class reunion, Joanna is approached by an old friend, Kodie Chartrand (Sera-Lys McArthur), who desperately needs her help: Kodie’s children have been removed from her home by the local family services department, the result of a dark conspiracy, she claims.


Celebrity Escape Room

8 p.m. ET on NBC

Kicking off a full night of programming devoted to Red Nose Day, an annual fundraising event to end child poverty, this new one-hour special taps into a current pop culture party phenomenon, in which a group of people work together to successfully escape from a locked room. Host Jack Black “traps” guests Ben Stiller, Adam Scott and former “Friends” co-stars Courteney Cox and Lisa Kudrow in a series of surprising puzzle rooms. Immediately following, the two-hour “Red Nose Day Special” features an all-star cast doing their bit for the cause.


Holey Moley

9 p.m. ET on ABC – Season Premiere

Joe Tessitore and professional wise guy Rob Riggle return as the on-camera commentators, with Jeannie Mai acting as the sideline correspondent, as this delightful mini-golf competition series — one of last season’s most improbable reality show hits — returns for Season 2. Each episode features eight contestants putting their mini-golf skills — and physical coordination — to the test on an epic obstacle golf course. The winner of each episode will return in the season finale to vie for the $250,000 grand prize.


Labor of Love

9 p.m. ET on FOX – Series Premiere

As a contestant on Season 11 of “The Bachelor,” Kristy Katzmann didn’t succeed in finding a true love match, but she’s hoping for better luck as the female in the spotlight of this new relationship series, hosted by former “Sex and the City” star Kristin Davis. This new venture puts Katzmann in the driver’s seat, as it were, considering 15 suitors eager to pledge their love. The stakes are higher here, though, given that Katzmann also is eager to have a child soon by the man she picks.
