Magic moments

“So You Think You Can Dance” crowns a winner, who instantly gets a nice check and a job teaching tango to tourists on cruise ships. The guest judge is Jenna Dewan-Tatum, who apparently learned a lot about dance moves watching her husband, Channing, prepare for “Magic Mike.” 7 p.m. KMSP, Ch. 9

Genius gardener

Peter Sellers may be best known for his over-the-top antics in “Dr. Strangelove” and the “Pink Panther” movies, but his finest work was also his subtlest. Check out 1979’s “Being There,” in which a simple gardener is mistaken for a genius. Melvyn Douglas won an Oscar for a supporting role. 7 p.m. TCM

Is there a draft in here?

“The League,” now opening its sixth season, hasn’t lost any of its sense of irreverent fun, as evidenced in the sidesplitting opener in which the gang puts their annual NFL draft ahead of a friend’s funeral. Andre’s (Paul Scheer) crazily inappropriate break dance in the middle of a somber service instantly registers as one of the series’ finest moments. 9 p.m. FXX.
