Gordon Ramsay asks the junior chefs to make meals with ingredients that they probably don’t really like. Typically unpalatable foods to kids — such as liver, sardines and blue cheese — are chosen as main ingredients for the meals on “MasterChef Junior” (Fox at 8 p.m.). The contestants bake layer cakes in the elimination round as a reward.

FINALE WATCH: After 10 years on the air, “What Not to Wear” (TLC at 9) is signing off for good, but not before a road trip to check on some of the show’s most shocking transformations. Stacy and Clinton end up at a farewell party in Las Vegas, where they have one last hurrah when they find a fashion-challenged candidate wandering around the Venetian hotel.

Taped at the Lincoln Center last November, “Great Performances 40th Anniversary Celebration” (PBS at 9) celebrates the program’s run with Julie Andrews, Josh Groban, Michael Bublé and many more.

The models embrace Bali’s culture for a photo shoot on “America’s Next Top Model” (CW at 9), but two of the contestants endanger their chances of winning the competition when they focus on their affection for one another.

New entrepreneurs pitch their ideas on “Shark Tank” (ABC at 9). Two North Carolina men want to rent out their goats for landscaping needs and a Los Angeles woman pitches a solution for painful bikini waxes.

A teenage girl appears to have been pushed onto the subway tracks by a homeless man on this week’s “Blue Bloods” (CBS at 10) and Danny is on the case. Elsewhere, Frank is displeased to learn that the new inspector general will oversee police policy.

RETURNING SHOW: After a midseason hiatus, Rainn Wilson is welcomed as a guest on “Comedy Bang! Bang!” (IFC at 10). Series regular Cactus Tony also joins the deadpan comedy series.

SERIES PREMIERE: A sketch comedy with a nod to absurd yet intelligent legacy sketch shows, “The Birthday Boys” (IFC at 10:30) appropriates familiar scenarios with classic TV, film and sketch archetypes with a fresh take. Bob Odenkirk makes a guest appearance.

Businessman Donald Trump and author Steve Young visit the “Late Show With David Letterman” (CBS at 11:35), along with musical guest White Denim.

“The Tonight Show With Jay Leno” (NBC at 11:35) welcomes actor Vince Vaughn, actress Olivia Munn and a musical performance by blues rock band Vintage Trouble.
