Before Spencer can share her concerns about Ezra with her friends, he uses her escalating addiction problem to discredit her. But who will the girls believe in “Free Fall”: the shady educator, or their fellow Liar?

The latest break in the search for his father leaves Danny roiled with doubt, while the latest break in the search for Regina’s killer implicates Mayor Rollins.

Face Off
“Cryptic Creatures” tasks the artists with conjuring their very own cryptids, those mythical flora and/or fauna that have thus far eluded the eye of modern science. Notable examples of cryptids include Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster, and a CW actor with more than 3 percent body fat.

9pm, PBS
The Rise and Fall of Penn Station: American Experience
Opened in 1910, New York City’s original Pennsylvania Station was an eight-acre hub for the East Coast rail network, serviced by 16 miles of underground tunnels. Yet the one-time architectural hallmark lasted only 53 years before giving way to Madison Square Garden. Historians now agree that the fate of this revered public space was sealed when its builder and original tenant, the Pennsylvania Railroad, was traded for St. James Place and one rent-free pass on the light purple properties. (Which of these statements is untrue? Tune in and find out!)

10pm, BET
Being Mary Jane
In “Hindsight is 20/40,” Mary Jane and Andre are on the rocks thanks to a picture. Though to be fair, you’d be upset too if you learned your squeeze was decades older than they looked thanks to a magical portrait in the attic. Meanwhile, Patrick decamps for new digs, Paul Jr. needs help when a drug run sparks violence, and Kara considers relinquishing primary custody of her sons.

10pm, TBS
Cougar Town

10pm, ABC
Killer Women
“Daughter of the Alamo” finds Molly teaming up with a misogynistic ex-Ranger after getting a tip about one of his cold cases. Will the retired lawman obtain a grudging respect for Molly, thus learning a valuable lesson about tolerance and feminism in a tidy 42 minutes?

SEASON 6 PREMIERE, 10pm, Comedy Central
Sports or Consequences returns, Daniel learns his dad’s identity, and something Comedy Central insists on calling “the sexiest web redemption ever” occurs. There is an unshakably zero percent chance I’m asking a follow-up question about that last one, so if you’re curious, I guess you’ll just have to watch.

10:30pm, Comedy Central

Sketches in “Mother Daughter Sister Wife” include C-Czar tending to a practice baby on Dad Academy, Bobby Bottleservice setting up at Gigolo House, and the Oh Hello guys raising a ruckus at the local Y.
