Love Under the Rainbow

8 p.m. ET on HALLMARK – Premiere

Lucy Taylor (Jodie Sweetin, “Fuller House”), a grade-school teacher, has all but given up on finding true love until she accidentally spills a hot beverage on a handsome stranger (David Haydn-Jones, “Supernatural”) in a coffee shop. He’s widower Jack Evans, who recently moved to town with his 10-year-old daughter, Sophie (Dakota Guppy), and in another of those rom-com coincidences, Lucy just happens to be her assigned teacher at school. The trio grow closer as Lucy gives Jack and Sophie a tour of their new town.


Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

8 p.m. ET on HBO – Premiere

Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard return to their roles as velociraptor wrangler Owen Grady and Claire Dearing, the former operations manager of Jurassic World, in this 2018 action-adventure sequel, the central “panel” in a planned “Jurassic World” trilogy. The story finds the now-estranged couple setting aside their personal issues to save Blue and the other remaining park animals from a volcanic eruption that threatens their Central American island. Rafe Spall, Justice Smith, James Cromwell and Toby Jones join the cast.


Ghost Adventures

9 p.m. ET on TRAVEL – Season Premiere

Zak Bagans and his crew of paranormal investigators open Season 18 on the road to Yuma, Ariz., where they hope to investigate a series of alleged mysterious attacks inside a former casino with a dubious past in the season premiere “Lutes Casino.” Once their party goes into lockdown, they encounter a childlike entity who nonetheless registers as a dark, sinister presence and seems to be roaming the building.


Drag Me Down the Aisle

9:03 p.m. ET on TLC

Four of the most popular drag queens in America — Alexis Michelle, Bebe Zahara Benet, Thorgy Thor and Jujubee — come to the rescue of a tomboyish bride from Amish country whose wedding is in trouble, in this new special. The bride, Emily, wants to dazzle her groom, but her body image issues and general insecurity keep her in a glam-deficient flannel-and-jeans wardrobe. The wedding budget is tight, too, so she needs assistance from drag queen wedding experts who can work miracles on a shoestring.


Family or Fiancé

10 p.m. ET on OWN – Series Premiere

This new unscripted series from Bunim/Murray Productions, the company that gave us the groundbreaking “The Real World” series, revolves around engaged couples whose families have voiced very strong concerns — some real, some imaginary — about their proposed union. The couples and both their families are brought together to live temporarily under one roof, where they’ll participate in activities designed to strengthen their bond, identify and address points of conflict and generally get the families to view the central couple in a new light. Relationship expert Tracy McMillan serves as host.
