Burning Love 10 p.m., E!

You have to see this show, which originated as a Web series. It’s the full-on parody of “The Bachelor” that you’ve always wanted. Ken Marino from “Party Down” is the bachelor, who gets to ask his favorite ladies, “Will you accept my hose?” The contestants include a homeless woman, an 84-year-old cougar, a pregnant flight attendant, and a stuffed bear. A number of former “Party Down” cast members make appearances, including Adam Scott and Martin Starr. Pictured: Marino with costars Abigail Spencer (left) and Erica Oyama.

Inside Comedy 11 p.m., Showtime


This show is so mellow. David Steinberg interviews comics with a gentle, reverent touch. On Monday night, he talks to Betty White, who describes learning to use cue cards for her appearance on “Saturday Night Live.” And Will Ferrell pulls out his George W. Bush impression for a question-and-answer session. “Inside Comedy” isn’t must-see, but for comedy lovers it’s a nice, little treat. Pictured: Steinberg (left) and Ferrell.
