First Dates

NBC, 8:00 pm ET

Since Drew Barrymore is the narrator of this series, a new episode titled "Never Been Kissed" is appropriate ... since that also was the name of one of her most popular movies. It also applies to one of the daters here, as he maintains that indeed, he never has received a kiss. Another contender is looking for more than romance, also wanting "power couple " status. Meanwhile, a vegan chef just wants someone he can share kale with. (Seriously.)

Shark Tank

ABC, 8:00 pm ET
Shark Tank

Chris Sacca is back as a guest Shark in this episode, which sees California entrepreneurs pitch their entire electric-skateboard business ... with a surprising result. A San Francisco graduate of MIT presents home-delivered pet food suitable for human consumption, and that city also is represented by a couple behind items made of chewable coffee. An ex-restaurateur and her husband show how to be at-home gourmets. Another episode follows.

Penn & Teller: Fool Us

CW, 8:00 pm ET

In "Here's Moxie," the featured magicians trying to stump veteran illusionists Penn & Teller include Matthew Laslo, Rob Zabrecky, David Garrard and Wayne Hoffman. If any of these challengers pull of a stunt that leaves the seasoned pros baffled, they'll get a chance to perform with Penn & Teller at their popular casino show in Las Vegas. Alyson Hannigan is the host. Another episode follows.

MacGyver

CBS, 8:00 pm ET
MacGyver

A mission becomes a survival test for MacGyver and Jack (Lucas Till, George Eads) in "Large Blade." Their helicopter crashes in Kazakhstan, and the war criminal they were transporting gets away -- with Jack's gun. They have that to worry about as well as the steadily declining health of their injured pilot, and MacGyver has only the title blade and a water bottle to use in trying to resolve both situations. Sandrine Holt also stars.

Ginormous Food

FOOD, 8:00 pm ET
Ginormous Food

Josh Denny is ready to gamble that Las Vegas has some truly decadent eats on offer in the new episode "Spicy, Smoky and Sweet in Sin City." Whether he lives to enjoy them is another matter after dining at Truffles N Bacon, home to the heart-stopping Hot Beast, a burger that piles tater tots, melted cheese, peppers and Korean mayonnaise on top of more than four pounds of ground beef and pork belly. Rollin' Smoke Barbecue features a 13-pound, two-foot sandwich with three types of smoked meat, waffle fries and more.
