Monday TV: ‘Bachelor in Paradise’ Returns

DEREK PETH, CORINNE OLYMPIOS, ALEXIS WATERS, VINNY VENTIERA, ALEX WOYTKIW“The Bachelorette” made her choice last week (and so far the two are still together by all indications – congrats!). Now comes the island of losers in “Bachelor in Paradise” (ABC, 8 p.m.) in which the vaguely familiar participants are encouraged to pair up to stay in the game — and stay on their Mexican resort. Liquored up, they are happy to oblige. But the network assures that despite reports, there was no sexual assaults.

A third two hour competition, “American Ninja Warrior” (NBC, 8 p.m.), is down to the Top 30.

The latest Princess Diana special is based on some old leftover interview tapes the journalist Andrew morton records in 1991, while preparing a book. Can’t imagine the fidelity is that good, for audio or autocrats, in “Diana: In Her Own Words” (National Geographic, 9 p.m.).

On “Midnight, Texas” (NBC, 10 p.m.), a woman can’t stop eating.

“CBSN: On Assignment” (CBS, 10 p.m.) graduates from online to broadcast, at least on an August Monday, with stories on overseas military bases reacting to the North Korea threats (from many sides), the fight against abusive language on Instagram and the use of abortion to eliminate Down syndrome in Iceland.

On “Preacher” (AMC, 9 p.m.), Jesse reaches a breakthrough in his search for God.

A particularly potent panel on “The Gong Show” (ABC, 10 p.m.) includes Will Arnett, Jennifer Aniston and Jack Black.

A betrayal occurs on the season two finale of “Shadowhunters” (Freeform, 8 p.m.).

Kirsten’s dad shows up on the third season finale of “Stitchers” (Freeform, 9 p.m.).
