Fox Don’t look now, but Gordon Ramsay has another new show on Fox.
TV picks for Wednesday, May 31
“Kingdom” (8 p.m., AT&T Audience): It’s back to Venice, California as the mixed martial arts drama returns for its third and final season. Picking up roughly a year after the events of Season 2, the storyline has Alvey (Frank Grillo) getting back into the cage after being a coach for all this time and updates us on what Jay (Jonathan Tucker) has been up to since his tragic loss. New faces appearing in the show include Talia Shire and Kirk Acevedo.
“The Carmichael Show” (9 p.m., NBC): Television’s most provocative and daring sitcom returns for a new season with back-to-back episodes. As usual, it isn’t shying away from thorny issues. The opener — “Yes Means Yes” — delves into a family debate about sexual assault and what constitutes consent.
“The F Word With Gordon Ramsay” (9 p.m., Fox): For some reason that we have yet to decipher, the suits at Fox just keep handing over chunks of their schedule to the insufferable chef. (Maybe you can explain it to us). Anyway, this time it’s a “live” program that will “combine good food and great cooking with Ramsay’s passion, energy and humor.” Teams of families and friends will battle it out in a high-stakes cook-off, hoping to impress Ramsay, as well as celebrities, VIPs and other dinner guests. (We assume the F word is “food,” but maybe not).
“NOVA: Poisoned Water” (9 p.m., PBS): Tonight’s installment offers a comprehensive narrative of what happened in Flint, Michigan, what agencies were involved, how it was uncovered and how it was resolved — using the science to tell the story. Also explored: An earlier water crisis in Washington, D.C., and its connection to Flint, and the motivation for scientist Marc Edwards to become involved in this story.
“Big Star Little Star” (9 p.m., USA): This new unscripted series has celebrity parents teaming up with their kids to compete in various games to see just how well they really know each other. Cat Deeley is our host.
“Brother vs. Brother: Jonathan vs. Drew” (9 p.m., HGTV): The Scott brothers hit the beach in Galveston, Texas, for a new season of home rehab series. The twins are given $600,000 each and six weeks of time to purchase and transform drab waterfront dwellings into stunning vacation retreats. Jonathan has won two straight years.
“Fargo” (10 p.m. FX): In “The Law of Inevitability,” Gloria tries to work around the system, Nikki finds herself in a familiar place, Varga comes up with an alternative plan and Emmit goes to dinner.
