“O.J.: Made in America,” 9-11 p.m. ET, ESPN.
After pausing for
one night, ESPN wraps ups this ambitious documentary mini-series. The
first two episodes reflected O.J. Simpson's immense success in
football, movies and TV, contrasting it with growing unrest in black
neighborhoods. The third (rerunning at 7 p.m. ET today) included his
Now comes the trial,
including a bizarre moment: Before the jury visited his home, lawyers
removed photos of Simpson with whites ... replacing then with African
art and photos with blacks.
“NCIS: Los Angeles,” 8 p.m., CBS.
Here's the second
half of a rerun that started last Friday. In Russia, Sam, Callen and
Anna (Russian-born actress Bar Paly) try to help her father and his
CIA companion break out of prison.
Also, there's a
milestone of sorts for Callen (Chris O'Donnell). Raised in an
orphanage, he never had a first name, except for the letter “G.”
Now – after 159 episodes – he learns what it stands for.
ALTERNATIVE: “What Would You Do?” season-opener, 9 p.m., ABC.
The world really
wants us to watch a reality show tonight. In the same slot are reruns
of “MasterChef” on Fox, “Penn & Teller: Fool Us” on CW
and a new “Marriage Boot Camp: Reality Stars” on WE.
But this one, from
ABC News, stands out because it offers interesting human insights. It
has actors fake different situations – anything from a spat to a
theft – and uses hidden cameras to catch responses. Barring a late
change, it begins its 13-week season tonight.
“Black Hawk Down”
(2001), 7-10 p.m., AMC. On June 28, National Geographic will have a
documentary, recounting the remarkable rescue of a U.S. helicopter
crew in Somalia. First, here's another chance to see the movie
version – a tough, high-octane film that won Oscars for its editing
and sound and was nominated for its cinematography and director

9:58 p.m., with the middle one rerunning at 10:50.
Talent,” 8-10 p.m., NBC. This reruns Tuesday's round of auditions.
p.m., Fox. Moving to its summer spot on Fridays, this show has a
rerun that puts Detective Villa into a romantic triangle with two
handsome doctors. While chasing a serial killer with Rosie (Morris
Chestnut), she's increasingly drawn to Mike (Taye Diggs).
9 p.m., CBS. Professor Danno? It sounds unlikely, but Danny (Scott
Caan) goes undercover in this rerun. A college prof has been killed
and Danny is his replacement.
10 p.m., CBS. Things are getting too personal for Det. Danny Reagan
(Donnie Wahlberg) in this rerun: A serial killer is threatening his
family. Meanwhile, his brother Jamie, a street cop, argues with his
superior officer about handling a hostage crisis.
ALSO: There are more
movies, ranging from kids (“The Good Dinosaur, 2015, at 8 p.m. on
Starz) to grown-ups (“Woman in Gold,” 2015, a true story with
fine work from Helen Mirren and Ryan Reynolds, at 10 on Showtime).
And as pledge drives wrap up, some PBS stations (check local
listings) have an excellent George Plimpton profile at 9 p.m. and the
wedding episode of “Vicious” at 10:30.
