Here’s what’s happening in the world of television for Thursday, February 15. All times are Eastern.

Top pick

RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars (VH1, 8 p.m.): The highlight of any Drag Race season has arrived, with its highs higher and its lights brighter: Get ready to match the all-stars in a very special edition of Snatch Game. The competition for the double-entendre-laced celebrity impersonation challenge is stacked (which is neither a reference to their chest plates nor the stage setup): BenDeLaCreme and Kennedy Davenport are both past Snatch Game champions, and previews of the episode hint at a panel populated by some heavyweight impressions, including Grace Jones, Paul Lynde, Maya Angelou, and Mama Ru herself. Oliver Sava is so excited for this episode (“How excited is he?”), he could [Blank].


Regular coverage

Top Chef (Bravo, 10 p.m.)

Wild card

20/20: Roseanne: The Return (ABC, 10 p.m.): How is it that no one on Drag Race has ever done Roseanne for Snatch Game? Or reached for their own armful of Emmys by doing Laurie Metcalf-as-Jackie-on-Roseanne? This reboot-pushing installment of 20/20 could provide some helpful research.
