“Amazing Race: Unfinished Business” (8 p.m., CBS). The racers head for Japan, and Jaime & Cara get into a car crash. So Jaime gets another chance to test her theory that screaming at foreigners is the best way to get people to help you.
“Chopped” (9 p.m., Food Network). Part 1 of the All-Stars Challenge! Tonight former “Next Food Network Star” cast members Brad Sorenson, Debbie Lee, Lisa Garza and Michael Proietti square off. Don’t worry, the selection of chefs improves significantly in coming weeks.
“Taking on Tyson” (7 p.m., Animal Planet). Series premiere. A new docu-series profiling Mike Tyson and his passion for training racing pigeons. Michael K. Williams (Omar from “The Wire”) narrates. The reviews have been mixed (here a positive NY Post one), but it sounds intriguing enough to at least check out.
“Brick City” (8 p.m., Sundance). Mayor Booker hits the streets on Election Day, and the police chief fights back against damaging allegations.
“America’s Next Best Restaurant” (8 p.m., NBC). Series premiere. I scoffed at first, but I’ve heard some surprisingly good reviews. Celebrity chef Curtis Stone hosts, and a panel of judges including Bobby Flay and Chipotle founder Steve Ells will challenge 21 potential restaurateurs to create a successful franchise. Food counts, but so do business chops. Kinda like a mix of “Top Chef” and “Shark Tank.” It comes from the producers of “Top Chef” and “Project Runway,” so it might actually be interesting.
“Breakout Kings” (10 p.m., A&E). Series premiere. A drama that plays on the old “you need a crook to catch a crook” cliche — a group of convicts is assembled by U.S. Marshals to hunt escaped convicts. Think “Prison Break” meets “Chase.” And probably about that good (which is . . . not very). It might be fun in a dumb way, but it really appears to lack any originality and offers nothing you haven’t seen before in countless other cop shows or movies. (Sepinwall calls it a wasted opportunity.)
Rerun of note
“Firefly” (8 and 10 p.m., Science). One of the all-time great one-season wonders, Joss Whedon’s critically acclaimed 2002-03 sci-fi/Western “Firefly” starts airing on Sundays. The two-hour pilot is at 8, with a second episode following. I’ve raved about this series enough in the past, but I don’t mind touting it again: It’s smart, witty and exciting, thoroughly geeky and thoroughly enjoyable, and I can’t recommend it enough. Among its stars: Nathan Fillion (“Castle”), Adam Baldwin (“Chuck”), Summer Glau (“The Cape”) and Morena Baccarin (“V”).
“Secret Millionaire” (8 p.m., ABC). Season premiere. Instead of rich people simply donating to the poor out of the goodness of their hearts, they go undercover and look for proof that people are miserable enough to be worthy of their handouts. It feels really distasteful to me.
“Celebrity Apprentice” (9 p.m., NBC). Season premiere. The new season starts with C-list celebrities such as Gary Busey, Meat Loaf, Star Jones, Marlee Matlin, David Cassidy, Lil John, Dionne Warwick and Mark McGrath. It looks unspeakably bad. Hopefully your life isn’t so empty that this can fill two hours of it.
“Real Housewives of Orange County” (10 p.m., Bravo). No.
