1) “Celebrity Dating Game,” 10 p.m., ABC. The “Dating Game” franchise has been around since 1965, but this is apparently a first for it – a contestant considering people from both genders. That’s Demi Burnett (shown here), whom viewers have seen dating a man (Colton Underwood) on “The Bachelor” and a woman (Kristian Haggerty) on “Bachelor in Paradise.” Now, answering her questions, will be both options.
2) “The All American,” 8 p.m., CW. It’s a double night for Tae Diggs. Here, he’s a coach; as the football season nears an end, his son Jordan worries about his football future; also the star player, Spencer, ponders his next step. Later, switch channels and find Diggs as one of the two celebrities on “Celebrity Dating Game.” He’s 50 and divorced from Idina Menzel, his former “Rent” castmate.
3) “The Republic of Sarah,” 9 p.m., CW. Things seemed easy at first, when the town spotted a treaty quirk that put it in neither New Hampshire nor Canada; it became a separate republic, with Sarah, a passionate history teacher, in charge. But now New Hampshire has closed the borders; she asks some teens to help solve the crisis. Also, her brother has a secret he’s kept from Sarah and their mom (played by Megan Follows, a terrific actress since her “Anne of Green Gables” days).
4) “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood” (2019), 6:28 p.m., Staz; or “Erin Brockovich” (2000), 8 p.m., Sundance. If you’re looking for real-life heroes, here are good choices. First is Fred Rogers, the gentle force behind feel-good kids’ TV; then is Brockovich, the layman who battled a giant utility. They’re played perfectly by Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts; she won an Oscar and he was nominated.
5) ALSO: If you missed the “BET Awards” – awash in music performances – on Sunday, you can catch a rerun now; it’s 9 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. on (logically) BET. And Acorn (www.acorn.tv) gives us two kinds of mysteries – two seasons of the dead-serious Irish “Proof” or a new episode of the amiable delight, “Ms Fisher’s Modern Murder Mysteries.” This one is a fairly interesting bowling-alley story that has personals impact on Peregrine Fisher and her friend James, the police detective.
