Monday’s best bets on TV

Among Monday’s best bets on television:

Chris Rock hosts the “BET Awards 2014.” Lionel Richie gets the Lifetime Achievement award. Guess we’re stuck on him. 8 p.m., BET.

“CBS Fall Preview,” well, previews CBS’s fall season, including the new shows, “Stalker” and “The McCarthys.” 8:30 p.m., CBS.

Time for a nostalgic trip back to Bayside High School for “The Unauthorized Saved By the Bell Story.” The film tells the story of six unknown actors thrust into the spotlight in the early ’90s when they were cast in the popular sitcom. 9 p.m., Lifetime.

Um, this could be awkward: On tonight’s edition of “America’s Next Top Model,” the contestants take part in another photo shoot, during which they’re given only a string to wear. 9 p.m., The CW.

“Houdini,”: Adrien Brody stars as the famous escape artist in this two-part miniseries. The conclusion airs Tuesday. 9 p.m., History.
