1) “Independent Lens,” 10 p.m., PBS (check local listings). Here’s a Veterans Day view of war-zone people; they’re interpreters, risking scorn and death to help American soldiers. Congress has said they should get hurry-up consideration, if they apply to move here. Bureaucracy, however, doesn’t seem to have a hurry-up mode. We meet a likable chap (shown here), a chain-smoker who goes by the name Philip Morris; he had to wait four years. Another man gave up on waiting and decided to flee, with tragic results.
2) More Veterans Day shows. There are a some war documentaries today – one (on SEAL’s) at 7 a.m. on History and a marathon starting at 1 p.m. on Smithsonian. And there are plenty of movies: History has them from 8 a.m. to 5:30 pm., including the terrific “American Sniper” (2014) at 11:28 a.m. Turner Classic Movies has them all day, including two classics – “The Best Years of Our Lives” (1946) at 9 a.m. ET and “Glory” (1989) at 5:45 p.m.; “Dirty Dozen” (1967) follows at 8.
3) “Bob (hearts) Abishola,” 8:30 p.m., CBS. Here’s a rerun of a fairly good episode, in a new show that has often been terrific. Tonight, Abishola calls off her relationship with Bob, before it’s anywhere near a romance. They try dating other people, with so-so results.
4) “All Rise,” 10 p.m., CBS. Shuffling its Monday shows, CBS has “Bull” at 9 p.m. and “Rise” at 10. This one is a rerun, with Judge Lola taking the jury to a crime scene.
5) “The Good Karma Hospital,” any time, www.acorn.tv. Acorn has an overload of doctors who move to small, quirky places. That includes “Doc Martin,” “The Heart Guy” and this amiable show, filmed in Sri Lanka: Dr. Ruby Walker moved to India, working in a hospital run by another British transplant, Lydia Fonseca. As the third season begins, Ruby’s plans are uncertain, after four months away with her family. We soon get drama, romance and (especially in the third episode) deep tragedy.
