TO WATCH

America's Next Top Model, 8 p.m., CW Tyra Banks' dramafest has reached 20 cycles, so fresh ideas are hard to come by. This time it'll be a coed competition, though, which is so brilliant we wonder why they didn't do it before.

Magic City, 9 p.m., Starz Ike makes a deal to run the Havana hotels. Somehow we don't think that's the safest bet.
