After last week’s evicted-houseguest-coming-back-in-the-house excitement, the pressure is on again as another competitor is sent packing on “Big Brother” (CBS at 9 p.m.).

The name of the game is “shoes” on Thursday’s “Project Runway” (Lifetime at 9), as the designers are tasked to create outfits inspired by footwear; later, the show promises a “shocking” elimination. Guest judges include Kaley Cuoco of “The Big Bang Theory.”

Dinosaurs are back, or at least they are on the original movie “Age of Dinosaurs” (Syfy at 9), in which a man has to rescue his daughter when the creatures come back to life.

Anne has a tough goal on “Chef Wanted With Anne Burrell” (Food Network at 10), as a popular Boston restaurant needs a chef who can not only come up with exciting new items for the menu but also oversee multiple restaurant locations.

Wilfred may be a fake dog, but he can still put Ryan in dangerous situations — and that’s exactly what happens on a new episode of “Wilfred” (FX at 10).

The Los Angeles food scene ladies always have drama on “Eat, Drink, Love” (Bravo at 10), and Jessica deals with family when her father comes to visit. Meanwhile, Brenda has some things to tell Kat about how she is perceived in the food world.

One bride decides she wants her wedding to resemble “The Phantom of the Opera” on “Four Weddings” (TLC at 10), and another woman getting married in New Jersey wants to use boardwalk entertainers to delight her guests.

The crew heads to a brewery in Hawaii on “Owner’s Manual” (AMC at 10:30) to see who can brew the best beer — those who read the instruction manual, or those who throw caution to the wind and decide they know what they’re doing.

A vegan model and a single mom go head to head on “Supermarket Superstar” (Lifetime at 10:30) as they try to invent a sauce that could easily sell in major supermarket chains.

It’s a big day for “The Late Show With David Letterman” (CBS at 11:35), as Letterman celebrates the 20th anniversary on the late-night show; The Post’s Dan Zak has more on Page C1. The show features actor Bill Murray, along with musical guests Lenny Kravitz and Gladys Knight.

Animal expert Julie Scardina and singer Rod Stewart are on “The Tonight Show With Jay Leno” (NBC at 11:35).
