Q&A

TV’s resurrection of quiz shows, which dominated prime time in the 1950s, continues with “Idiotest,” a new endeavor hosted by comedian Ben Gleib. Contestants take on rapid-fire questions that test observational skills and attention to detail. Winners get $10,000. Losers get a chair and a dunce cap and must go sit in the corner. 8 p.m. GSN

One for the ladies

“Sisterhood of Hip Hop” spotlights female artists trying to spin their way to success in a genre dominated by men. Folks stopping by to offer encouragement in this first season include Eve, Lil Jon, Travie McCoy, Rick Ross and Tank. 8 p.m. Oxygen

National gig

Lake Street Dive, the jazz and soul band with some Minneapolis roots, continues its steady crawl into the mainstream with an appearance on “Conan.” Fellow guests Damon Wayans Jr. and Ali Larter are encouraged to join in on cowbell. 10 p.m. TBS
