I scream, you scream

Local pastry chef Ben Spangler makes his TV debut on “King of Cones” as he battles to prove he can freeze out competitors trying to make the best ice cream dessert. Does Spangler deserve to come out on top? Judge for yourself by heading over to his home base, Zelo, where you can watch the show while the chef hands out free samples. 7 p.m. Food Network


Mayim Bialik doesn’t much resemble Allen Funt, but she’ll take a shot at hosting “Candid Camera,” a reboot of the legendary series that featured practical jokes that didn’t involve trying to get people to freak out. Megan Hilty (“Smash”) and Hot 97 DJ Peter Rosenberg are among those in on the fun. 7 p.m. TV Land

How bizarre

If you’re still hungry after filling up on ice cream, tune in for a special episode of “Bizarre Foods With Andrew Zimmern,” in which our locally based host looks back at behind-the-scenes antics and bloopers culled from past episodes. 8 p.m. Travel Channel
