1) “American Experience: Citizen Hearst,” 9-11 p.m. PBS; concludes Tuesday. William Randolph Hearst stormed into a stodgy newspaper world. He had money (thanks to an obliging mother), ambition and imagination – sometimes too much of all three. His papers had sharp writing and human-interest stories; at times, they also tended to exaggerate. Hearst built a castle, dated a movie star, had fancy dinner parties (shown here) ran for office; he built an epic life that crumbled during the Depression. Here’s a fascinating portrait.

5) “Midsomer Murders,” any time, www.acorn.tv. For 22 seasons, “Midsomer” has had English-style mysteries – calm, quiet, calculated. Now it has movie-length tales on the next four Mondays. This is the 50th for Neil Dudgeon, who took over the lead role a decade ago. He heads to a board-game mogul’s mansion, which swarms with suspects. That makes Acorn a good site for mysteries. Today, it also adds a new episode of Lucy Lawless’ “My Life is Murder,” with William Shatner as a guest star.
