With a name like Steak Me Home Tonight, Dave’s food truck was obviously going to get stolen at some point — and that’s exactly what happens on “Happy Endings” (ABC at 8). Later, Alex convinces Penny to reach out to her estranged father (guest star Andy Richter) in time for her wedding.

On “Shark Tank” (ABC at 9), a farmer from Illinois has an idea for a new gourmet meat business, while two men from Las Vegas want start-up money to launch a product line of light-up watercoolers so people can easily search inside.

A bride on “Say Yes to the Dress: Atlanta” (TLC at 9, 9:30) makes it very clear that she loves peacocks, and may want to incorporate a similar theme in her wedding look; afterward, another woman wants a Princess Leia theme due to her love of “Star Wars.”
