Project Runway (9pm, Lifetime) - A new season on the “Runway,” but this time without a hometown hero to cheer for (N.C. State’s Justin LeBlanc was a finalist last season). As long as we have Tim Gunn, we are happy. Tonight, the designers face one final “audition” before landing a spot on the show, then those remaining create a look that represents their spring collection. Actress Julie Bowen (“Modern Family”) is the guest judge. A casting special airs at 8.

Also on tonight . . .

Hell’s Kitchen (8pm, Fox) - In the Season 12 finale, the top two contestants ( Scott Cummings and Jason Zepaltas) each create five unique dishes and then prepare menus for the last dinner service before one of them is crowned the winner.

Rectify (9pm, Sundance) - Daniel heads out on a strange errand and mysteriously disappears. Later, the family surprises Janet with unexpected birthday presents.

Welcome to Sweden (9pm, NBC) - Bruce and Emma try to prove their love at the Immigration office. Meanwhile, Emma is sure Bruce is being stalked by his former client Aubrey Plaza.

Satisfaction (10pm, USA) - Adriana encourages Neil to continue his secret life while Grace tries to reestablish a career.

Maron (10pm, IFC) - A guilt-ridden Marc’s penance for accidentally stealing another comic’s joke is to give the guy a career boost.

Comedy Bang! Bang! (10:30pm, IFC) - Tonight’s installment is called “Craig Robinson Wears a Bordeaux Button Down and Dark Jeans.” That’s enough.
