Masterchef: Celebrity Showdown on Fox at 8:00pm ET. Two-hour special presentation. Terry Crews! Boris Kodjoe! Gigi Hadid! That woman who was on Empire! Guys, Monday night TV is still pretty disappointing. I’m sorry.
Telenovela on NBC at 8:30pm ET.
The Biggest Loser on NBC at 9:00pm ET.
War & Peace on History, Lifetime, and A&E at 9:00pm ET. Original mini-series premiere. That is an interesting distribution of channels. This adaptation features Paul Dano and Lily James, along with a brief hint of Gillian Anderson. The BBC version was apparently 6 episodes, but this is listed as “Part 1 of 4” so it looks like it’s either been chopped up a bit differently or shortened some other way for the American audience.
Almost Royal on BBCA at 10:00pm ET. Second season premiere.
