World's Funniest Fails
FOX, 8:00 pm ET
Many people believe they have the ability to entertain ... and some end up doing so in ways they didn't intend, particularly in the world of videos that go viral. Such segments are showcased in the new episode "Gotta Sing! Gotta Dance! Gotta Fail!," as host Terry Crews presents examples of wayward "talent." The one judged to miss the mark most epically will be deemed the show's Fail of the Week.
Last Man Standing
ABC, 8:00 pm ET
The end of a relationship often isn't easy, especially when it's one of the first times -- which is Eve's (Kaitlyn Dever) dilemma in the new episode "Eve's Romance."

The Heartbreak Kid
TCM, 8:00 pm ET
Not to be confused with the raunchy 2007 remake with Ben Stiller, this 1972 romantic comedy earned almost universal critical acclaim for its story of a callous salesman (Charles Grodin) who falls for an equally shallow but beautiful Midwestern beauty (Cybill Shepherd) on his Miami honeymoon, while his hapless wife (an Oscar-nominated Jeannie Berlin) is incapacitated by a serious sunburn. Eddie Albert also got an Oscar nod as Shepherd's suspicious father.

Much of Jason Bateman's adult acting career has found him playing perfectly nice guys who find themselves struggling with comically impossible situations.

Mark Cuban definitely isn't impressed with one of the ideas presented in this new episode, since he pronounces it "horrible."

Michael Ealy, Jerry Ferrara, Meagan Good, Taraji P. Henson and Wendi McLendon-Covey also star.
Masters of Illusion
CW, 9:30 pm ET
The title of the new episode "Close Up" suggests the camera really won't be blinking as the featured magicians do their stuff -- which could make it even more challenging for them to preserve the trickery involved.

CBS, 10:00 pm ET

A Life in Dirty Movies
SHO, 11:00 pm ET
Once past the misleadingly salacious title, writer-director Wiktor Ericsson crafts a charming and surprisingly sweet portrait of sexploitation filmmakers Joe and Peggy Sarno as the elderly couple try to get one last film project off the ground. The "dirty movies" the Sarnos were noted for were a far cry from hardcore porn. Instead, they were erotically charged, female-centric pieces that showed audiences just enough to make them think they had seen something far more explicit.
