Old clothes

In the latest installment of “Project Runway” (8 p.m., Lifetime), the remaining designers are tasked with creating outfits that are appropriate for senior citizens. Since this is the world of modeling, “senior citizens” translates into anyone over 27.

What’ll we do, baby?

Former “Family Ties” moppet Tina Yothers, now a married mother of two, turns to experts to find out “What Not to Wear” (9 p.m., TLC). We understand that brother Alex Keaton is too busy running the world to help out, but isn’t this mission right up Mallory’s alley?

⊳ Searching for laughs

Comedy Central seems particularly keen on finding new talent, offering a number of shows to up-and-coming comics and seeing if any will register with audiences. The latest: “The Ben Show with Ben Hoffman” (9 p.m., Comedy), left, a hybrid between sketches and man-on-the-street interviews, and “Nathan for You” (9:30 p.m., Comedy), in which Nathan Fielder provides outrageous campaigns for small businesses.
