A peek behind the curtain

It seems a bit early for rookie sitcom "Black-ish" to be doing a behind-the-scenes/blooper special, but I guess it's better than a rerun. Maybe they'll get around to explaining what happened to Laurence Fishburne. Minnesota native Yara Shahidi, who plays the oldest daughter, helps conduct the tour. 8:31 p.m. KSTP, Ch. 5

Artists' quarters

In "American Canvas," comedian Dave Holmes gets to know major cities through their art and culture. First up is San Francisco, where he checks out a vertical dance company and the world's largest private collection of coin-operated mechanical instruments. 9 p.m. Ovation

Dinner is served

Foodies won't want to miss "Best New Restaurant," a well-done reality-competition series that pits top eateries against each other. This week, it's the Pines in Brooklyn vs. Union in Pasadena, Calif. I've eaten at the latter; the Pines staff has its work cut out for them. 9 p.m. Bravo
