1) “The Longest Day” (1962), 8-11 p.m. ET, Turner Classic Movies; and “Saving Private Ryan” (1998), 7-11 p.m., AMC. On the 75th anniversary of D-Day, here are esteemed films, a generation apart. Both won Oscars for cinematography (black-and-white, for “Longest Day”) and were nominated for best picture. “Longest Day” required three directors and endless stars, from John Wayne to Richard Burton; “Private Ryan” (shown here) had Tom Hanks and the brilliant, Oscar-winning direction of Steven Spielberg.
2) “Paradise Hotel” finale, 8-10 p.m., Fox. This show has thrived elsewhere, with versions in 18 countries, but keeps sputtering in the U.S. It was cancelled after one season in 2003 … then revived and cancelled in 2008. Fox brought it back this year, insisting it had been “ahead of its time.” Maybe it still is; ratings were dismal and Fox pulled the plug early; tonight, apparently, a couple will win $250,000.
3) “iZombie,” 8 p.m., CW. Liv keeps munching the brains of murder victims and assuming their personalities. This time, the victim is a matchmaker … so she’s obsessed with finding someone for Major. That’s a new episode; so is “In the Dark,” at 9: Murphy and her roommate are going through similar circumstances, but in very different ways.
4) “Mom,” 9:01 p.m., CBS. This reruns the episode that launched an atypical plot for an otherwise terrific show: Bonnie invites her former foster sister (Kristen Johnston), newly paroled, to stay with her. It’s a so-so tale, but stick around because there’s a new “Life in Pieces” at 9:30.
5) More D-Day shows, cable. The National Geographic Channel has three hours of documentaries, with “Eyewitness D-Day” at 7 p.m. ET and “D-Day Sacrifice” at 8 and 9. Turner Classic Movies has a full day of World War II films, including some clever fiction at 1 p.m. ET: In “36 Hours,” the Nazis concoct an extreme scheme to trick an American (James Garner) into revealing D-Day plans.
