1) “The Last Dance,” 8 and 9 p.m., ABC. This acclaimed documentary series (originally on ESPN) concludes next week, with Michael Jordan (shown here) and the Chicago Bulls going for their final championship. First, this detour: At 30, Jordan found his life overloaded – three straight championships, the Olympics, gambling accusations and the murder of his father. He played minor-league baseball, quit basketball for a year-and-a-half … then returned to try to save the Bulls’ season.
2) “The Good Liar” (2019), 8 p.m., HBO. Two great actors collide in a smart – maybe too smart – tale. Helen Mirren, 75, plays a rich woman, with Ian McKellan, 81, as the con man who romances her. From there, the story takes a wild journey through flashbacks and schemes. It all seems excessive (and maybe too convenient), but it does add up to a thinking-person’s story, worth sticking with.
3) More movies, cable. Prefer something more youthful? TNT has re-arranged the first six films of the “Star Wars” saga, to have the story unfold chronologically. They’re at 7 a.m. (1999), 10 a.m. (2002), 1:07 p.m. (2005), 4:15 p.m. (1977), 7 p.m. (1980) and 9:47 p.m. (1983). Younger still? Freeform has “Finding Nemo” (2003) and “Finding Dory” (2010), at 4:40 and 7:10 p.m.
4) “Partners in Crime” opener, 7 p.m., Ovation. After showing the light Frankie Drake mysteries, Ovation switches to something more substantial. The six episodes adapt two Agatha Christie novels, updating them to the 1950s. Jessica Raine (“Call the Midwife”) plays Tuppence, who tugs her husgand into Cold War espionage adventures. Alice Krige and Clarke Peters co-star.
5) “NCIS: New Orleans,” 8 p.m., CBS. In a rerun of the season-opener, Pride is supposed to be on vacation. He has to rush back to work when Hannah is suspended for breaking protocol.
