 South Park -? The five-time Emmy Award-winning series returns for a 19th season with 10 new episodes. Last season, the foul-mouthed fourth graders launched a Kickstarter campaign, discovered Randy’s true passion, flew a drone and explored the world of virtual reality. No doubt Stan, Kyle, Kenny and Cartman will get straight A’s for their efforts to offend as many people as possible this time around, too. The premiere is followed by the new animated comedy Moonbeam City, with Rob Lowe voicing the idiotic Det. Dazzle. (Much) | Photograph by: handout , Comedy Network

There’s a whole lot of cooking going on in the season’s two-hour conclusion, Team Gordon Ramsay/The Finale. The three finalists get assistance from others in preparing a meal for 30 guests who have much more than a passing culinary knowledge. Then, the two remaining contestants will be tasked with prepping a three-course meal — and the person who impresses Ramsay, Graham Elliot and Christina Tosi the most will win $250,000 US and more.

A massive roundup of Jews tears the city of Paris apart and convinces the team that they must find a way to smuggle an early Holocaust witness across enemy territory to share his story with Allied leaders, in a repeat episode called Into the Fire. Meanwhile, German agents close in on Aurora and Alfred (Evelyne Brochu, Jack Laskey). Warren Brown and Dustin Milligan also star. (CBC)

Paranormal Witness
Celebrated paranormal investigator Lorraine Warren, whose uncanny experiences inspired the hit movie The Conjuring, figures in the new episode Suzy Doll, which chronicles the case of young Heather Platt, who was given a life-size doll when she turned six. Unfortunately, the doll was possessed by demons, who nearly tore the little girl’s family apart as they fought to claim Heather’s soul. (Space)

Movie: Breathless
More than half a century after its initial 1960 release, it’s easy to see how Jean-Luc Godard’s electrifying film helped launch French New Wave cinema, along with Francois Truffaut’s The 400 Blows and Alain Resnais’ Hiroshima Mon Amour. Jean-Paul Belmondo is compelling as a French hood who kills a policeman and heads for Italy with his American girlfriend (Jean Seberg), but it’s Godard’s arresting visual style that film buffs still talk about.

Blackish
The family’s past comes into focus in a repeat of the first season finale, Pops’ Pops’ Pops. Jack and Diane (Miles Brown, Marsai Martin) have a hard time finding anything on the subject for a class project, but Pops (Laurence Fishburne) steps in with the tale of an ancestor (series star Anthony Anderson) who ran up against a gangster (guest star Sean (Diddy) Combs) in 1920s Harlem. Another major music figure, Mary J. Blige, is also a guest star. (ABC)
