ABC News Democratic Candidates Debate

8 p.m. ET on ABC

From Texas Southern University’s Health and P.E. Arena in Houston, the qualifying candidates for the Democratic Party’s presidential nomination swap viewpoints on gun control, climate change, health care and other hot-button topics in this, the third in a series of nationally televised debates. Moderating the three-hour proceedings will be ABC News chief anchor George Stephanopoulos, “World News Tonight” anchor David Muir, network correspondent Linsey Davis and Univision anchor Jorge Ramos.


Ax Men

9 p.m. ET on HISTORY – Season Finale

In “Untethered,” the Season 10 finale, Jason Rygaard races to finish clearing a hillside in time to fill four logging trucks. Elsewhere, Jay R. Harkness takes his life in his hands quite literally as he fights desperately to control the untethered Tigercat on a steep, snow-covered mountainside. Meanwhile, Buckin’ Billy and his son Hogan battle a forest of hang-ups and widow-makers, and Mike Pihl and his son Danny confront a devastating loss.


Beat Bobby Flay

10 p.m. ET on FOOD – Season Premiere

Talk show host Seth Meyers (“Late Night With Seth Meyers”) and Iron Chef Michael Symon think chef Bobby Flay is overdue for a lesson in humility as this hit culinary competition opens Season 22 with a premiere called “It’s Gonna Be a Late Night.” First, though, they must decide which challenger will take Bobby on: kitchen wizard Lamar Moore from the South Side of Chicago, or chef Carrie Baird, known to some as the “Queen of Toast.”


Mr Inbetween

10 p.m. ET on FX – Season Premiere

Series creator and star Scott Ryan returns for Season 2 of this critically acclaimed sitcom from Australia, but if you think the life of his character — criminal-for-hire Ray Shoesmith — is likely to be any more manageable, think again. On top of the expected duties that come with being a single dad to daughter Brittany (Chika Yasumura) and providing care for his sick brother Bruce (Nicholas Cassim), Ray’s also trying not to screw up a promising new romance with paramedic Ally (Brooke Satchwell).
