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
Last Man Standing

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." Actually, it seems to be a dilemma for others more than for her, since they offer her advice she maintains she doesn't need. Tim (Tim Allen) tries to give her a break by taking her along to watch Ed's (Hector Elizondo) new, giant television. Nancy Travis also stars.

Hart of Dixie

CW, 8:00 pm ET
Hart of Dixie

Lavon (Cress Williams) stages a talent show, aiming to help Lemon (Jaime King) solve her financial troubles, in the new episode "Red Dye No. 40."

Jeremy Davies -- yes, he was on "Lost," too -- also guest stars.

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.

Bad Words

MAX, 8:30 pm ET

Much of Jason Bateman's adult acting career has found him playing perfectly nice guys who find themselves struggling with comically impossible situations. In this 2013 black comedy, however -- which also marked Bateman's directorial debut -- the actor stars as misanthropic 40-year-old middle-school dropout Guy Trilby, who finds a loophole that allows him to enter a national spelling bee for kids. Some darkly funny complications ensue. Kathryn Hahn and Allison Janney co-star.

Cristela

ABC, 8:31 pm ET
Cristela

Meeting with resistance upon suggesting Cristela (Cristela Alonzo) should pay more attention to her health, Daniela (Maria Canals-Barrera) maneuvers her into getting a checkup in the new episode "Hypertension."

Shakespeare Uncovered

Think Like a Man Too

STARZ, 9:00 pm ET

Most of the original cast reassembles for this 2014 sequel to the 2012 comedy hit "Talk Like a Man," based on a book by comic Steve Harvey. This follow-up did well at the box office, despite a thin premise that finds these friends struggling with life-changing decisions as they gather in Las Vegas for Michael and Candace's (Terrence Jenkins, Regina Hall) wedding. Michael Ealy, Jerry Ferrara, Meagan Good, Taraji P. Henson and Wendi McLendon-Covey also star.

Masters of Illusion

CW, 9:30 pm ET
Masters of Illusion

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.

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.

Sat, January 31

Beautiful & Twisted

LIFETIME, 8:00 pm ET

Rob Lowe and Candice Bergen headline this bloody, sexy, perversely funny true-crime tale about the murders of Fontainebleau hotel heir Ben Novack Jr. and his mother, and the twisted web of sex, excess and revenge that would lead police to Novack’s wife, a seductive former stripper named Narcy.

The 32-year-old Chinese would retire eight months later due to chronic knee pain.

Non-Stop

HBO, 7:05 pm ET

The title also could describe the pace of Liam Neeson's action-hero work since his success with "Taken." This effective 2014 airplane thriller casts him as a federal air marshal who receives texts threatening fellow passengers will die unless a ransom is paid. Neeson expectedly is the main show here, but his impressive co-stars include Julianne Moore, Michelle Dockery ("Downton Abbey"), Corey Stoll and Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o ("12 Years a Slave").
