Wednesday’s best bets on TV

Among Wednesday’s best bets on television:

“American Grilled” visits Austin, Texas, where grillmasters take on Lockhart sausage, nopales, pecans, jalapeños and beef heart. 9 p.m., Travel.

The freshman season of “Motive” comes to a close. 10 p.m., ABC.

Actress Shailene Woodley (“Fault in Our Stars”) appears with the competitiors on “Top Chef: Duels,” probably to see if she can find a fault in their chars. 10 p.m., Bravo.

Figure skater Tara Lipinski knows something about graceful moves, so no wonder she’s a guest judge on “So You Think You Can Dance.” Don’t anticipate any triple axels from our Top 4, though. 8 p.m., Fox.

We totally expect Mike Tyson to bring the pain during his guest appearance on “Franklin &Bash.” In a major stretch, the former boxing champ plays himself, tattoo face and all. 10 p.m., TNT.
