1) “Lopez vs. Lopez,” 8 p.m., NBC. This gets a much-needed boost from Neil Flynn (shown here) and Eden Sher, as the new neighbors. They play father and daughter – just as they did in “The Middle,” a much better comedy; as it happens, he’s George’s old friend-turned-foe. Flynn and Sher have a solid approach – as does Mayan Lopez, who is George’s daughter, on the show and in real life. They’re a welcome relief from the other characters, all overwrought.
2) “Young Rock,” 8:30, NBC. At first, Dwayne Johnson’s efforts to launch an acting career sputtered. He got roles playing fighters on “That ‘70s Show” and “Star Trek Voyager,” but nothing else … until a “Saturday Night Live” hosting gig stirred his career. Here’s a fictional version of that stretch.
3) “Raiders of the Lost Ark” (1981), 8 p.m., Paramount Network. It’s movie-star night on cable. Here, Harrison Ford stars in a Steven Spielberg gem and its first two sequels, which are at 10:30 p.m. (1984) and 1 a.m. (1989). Also at 8 p.m., there’s Brad Pitt in Aaron Sorkin’s clever baseball film, “Moneyball” (2011), and Tom Cruise is in the sleek, Oscar-nominated “Top Gun: Maverick” (2022), on MGM+, formerly Epix.
4) “Fire Country,” 9 p.m.,, CBS. The local fair becomes a disaster zone when a ride malfunctions. That’s part of a no-rerun night on CBS. On “SWAT” (8 p.m.,), a rampage is tied to a brutal moment in Hicks’ past; on “Blue Bloods” (10), Danny rushes to stop a killer targeting young women.
5) “Your Place or Mine,” Netflix. Reese Witherspoon has become a hyper-active producer. That includes a well-crafted movie (“Where the Crawdads Sing”) plus three series – “Daisy Jones & The 6,” “Tiny Beautiful Things” and “The Last Thing He Told Me” – that start streaming in March and April. And occasionally, she also acts in her shows. In this one one, she and Ashton Kutcher play friends who temporarily trade homes and lives.
