TV tonight: ‘Mental Samurai,’ a new game show hosted by Rob Lowe

TV picks for Tuesday, March 19
WATCH THIS:

American Housewife” (8 p.m., ABC): While Greg enlists Oliver and Anna-Kat’s help to drum up new recruits for the Westport Historical Guild, Katie does her best to support Taylor’s dreams of becoming the next American Idol. Real “American Idol” judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie and Luke Bryan, along with host Ryan Seacrest, guest star.

“The Flash” (8 p.m., The CW): With the meta-human cure ready to use, Barry and Team Flash must figure out a way to subdue Cicada long enough to take it. Killer Frost steps in to help with the plan. Meanwhile, Joe eases back into work, and Nora isn’t happy about the way her dad plans to stop Cicada.

“Mental Samurai” (9 p.m., Fox): Hosted by Rob Lowe, this new game show is described as a “brain scrambling roller coaster event unlike anything seen before.” It’s the ultimate obstacle course…for the mind. Competitors of all ages and from all walks of life attack the course by answering a variety of rapid-fire questions in under five minutes to see if they can earn the title of Mental Samurai. But they must do so while being whipped around in an electronic pod on a thrill ride worthy of a theme park. Apparently, becoming a Mental Samurai is very, very difficult.

“Frontline: The Trial of Ratko Mladic” (9 p.m., PBS): This chilling installment goes inside the war crimes trial of one of the most infamous figures from the Yugoslav wars of the 1990s. In the two-hour special, producer Henry Singer gains exclusive access to both the prosecution and defense teams. The film also offers firsthand accounts from both victims of Mladic’s war crimes, as well as his family members and community who continue to defend him. It’s U.S. television’s most comprehensive look at the mastermind behind massacres that are considered to be the worst atrocities Europe has seen since World War II.

“The Village” (10 p.m., NBC): The Village in this new drama is a Brooklyn apartment building that appears like any other from the outside but is quite unique inside. The people who live here have built a bonded family of friends and neighbors. Sarah’s a nurse and single mom raising a creative teen; Gabe’s a young law student who got a much older and unexpected roommate; Ava must secure the future of her young, U.S.-born son when ICE comes knocking; Nick’s a veteran who’s returned from war; and the heart and soul of the building, Ron and Patricia, have captivating tales all their own. These are the hopeful, heartwarming and challenging stories of life that prove family is everything — even if it’s the one you make with the people around you.

STREAM THIS:

“Amy Schumer Growing” (Netflix): In her second standup special for Netflix, the comedian gives a refreshingly honest and hilarious take on marriage, pregnancy and personal growth.
