To watch

Top Chef, 9 p.m., Bravo: For the record, we're really not liking Angelo. It shouldn't be too hard for the others to make a cold dish for him, either.

The Choir, 10 p.m., BBC America: A bunch of the kids threaten to walk out under pressure. It's a pretty good preview to what the rest of their lives will be like after this show.

SERIES PREMIERE, Intersections, 10 p.m., Speed: Comparisons between two very different speed machines and the people who operate them. First up: NHRA racer Tony Schumacher's 8,000-horsepower dragster vs. Navy Lt. Aaron Ochalek's F/A-18 fighter jet.
