Preachers’ Daughters  10 p.m., Lifetime

It’s exactly what you’d expect. The producers have found three families of preachers who have agreed to be filmed and whose daughters are . . . feisty. All of the plot lines revolve around sexuality, of course. One daughter wants to be a porn star, one has overprotective parents who don’t want her to date, and one is a mother at 18 who is unsure of the father’s identity. Hey, if you don’t like this show, hold on for WE’s entry in the faith-reality genre, “Divas for Jesus,” which will be about upscale Christian women who are naughty during the week and then repentant on Sundays. No, not kidding.


The Taste  9 p.m., Channel 5

Yet another one of TV’s many cooking contests reaches its finale. “The Taste” has been a kind of foodie version of “The Voice.” Heading into Tuesday’s episode, four cooks are left competing for the $100,000 prize. Ludo Lefebvre has two team members still in the competition, Brian Malarkey has one, and Anthony Bourdain has one. Alas, Nigella Lawson’s team was wiped out.
