The master of his domain

The minor trials and tribulations of Aziz Ansari are in session on "Master of None," the comedian's mostly successful attempt to transform his stand-up act into a sitcom. The second episode, directed by Ansari, is a gem. Dev and an Asian-American buddy re-evaluate their fathers' contributions over a hilarious Chinese dinner, a bit made all the more delicious by the casting of Ansari's real-life parents, who are obviously thrilled to be spending quality time with their son.

Childproof kitchen

Kids have more than peanut-butter-and-jelly sandwiches on the menu when "MasterChef Junior" returns for fourth season. Ross Mathews and Natasha Leggero are among the baby sitters/judges who oversee the challenges, which start with preparing a signature burger. 7 p.m. Fri., KMSP, Ch. 9

Trump card

Donald Trump's last-minute decision to ditch "Jimmy Kimmel Live" didn't have many political repercussions, but he'll be in deep water if he skips out on hosting "Saturday Night Live," a golden opportunity for the presidential candidate if only so he can "fire" cast member Taran Killam over his less-than-huge impersonation. 10:29 p.m. Sat., KARE, Ch. 11

All that jazz

Thank goodness for "Great Performances." For those of us who can't afford to give our regards to Broadway on a regular basis, this longtime series offers a front-row seat to the best in musical theater. The latest: "Chita Rivera: A Lot of Livin' to Do," a documentary about the formidable singer-dancer who originated roles in such classics as "Chicago" and "West Side Story." Footage of Rivera on stage will have you wondering why she hasn't made a bigger splash at the movies. 8 p.m. Fri., TPT, Ch. 2
