“MasterChef Junior” (8 p.m., Fox): The Top 14 junior home cooks receive a mystery box challenge inspired by the White House garden from former First Lady Michelle Obama. The young cooks must come up with an original recipe that is both healthy and presidential worthy, and the winner will receive a special once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Obama makes a special guest appearance and Julie Bowen (“Modern Family”) is a guest judge.
“Grey’s Anatomy” (8 p.m., ABC): It’s road-trip time! In a stand-alone episode, Jackson and April travel to Montana in order to perform a complicated throat surgery on a young patient. But Jackson’s mind is elsewhere, and April is forced to step up and get him back on track.
“Superstore” (8 p.m., NBC): Jonah accompanies Amy on a trip to help her mom and dad (guest star Tony Plana) move out of her childhood home. Meanwhile, Glenn desperately wants to win the freshly minted Cloud 9 Integrity Award, but starts to worry that Garrett has a better chance of winning; Dina tries to take advantage of Mateo’s relationship with Jeff (recurring guest star Michael Bunin) to fix problems in the store – including a roach infestation; and Cheyenne gets caught up in Glenn’s self-serving campaign.
“Braxton Family Values” (9 p.m., WE tv): As the reality series returns, rumors of marital troubles between Tamar and Vince are making headlines, and the couple discusses the possibility of having another baby, which leaves the sisters confused and concerned. Toni, on the other hand, is enjoying the budding of a new love—and is finally ready to take her relationship public. For the first time in years, the notoriously private superstar is opening up about the new man in her life. Meanwhile, Towanda files for divorce from Andre and swears this time there is no turning back.
“Review” (10 p.m., Comedy Central): Nothing is off limits for life reviewer Forrest MacNeil as he returns for his final journey. The show stars Andy Daly as critic Forrest MacNeil, who does not review boring things like films, food or art. Instead, Forrest reviews the most intense experiences of life itself — by living them. From the dangers of being buried alive to the thrills of joining the mile high club.
“Snatch” (Crackle): Inspired by a real-life heist in London, this 10-episode series centers on a group of 20-something, up and coming hustlers who stumble upon a truck load of stolen gold bullion and are suddenly thrust into the high-stakes world of organized crime.
