Today’s Top 5 Picks


American Housewife

8 p.m. ET on ABC

The hit sitcom returns from hiatus with a new episode called “The Things You Do,” which finds Greg (Diedrich Bader) determined to do the household taxes himself, a situation that moves Katie (Katy Mixon) to take matters into her own hands. Elsewhere, after Taylor (Meg Donnelly) finally sees Pierce’s (guest star Milo Manheim) true colors, the family helps her mount an over-the-top campaign to win back her wronged ex-boyfriend, Trip (recurring guest star Peyton Meyer).


American Soul

9 p.m. ET on BET – Series Premiere

Sinqua Walls (“Once Upon a Time”) stars as Don Cornelius in this new docudrama that charts the life and career of the celebrated entrepreneur, particularly as he launches the phenomenally successful music and dance TV show “Soul Train.” When that series premiered in the early ’70s, it played a big role in how black American culture was perceived by the rest of the world — and, indeed, by white America. Jason Dirden, Iantha Richardson, Christopher Jefferson and Kelly Rowland (as Gladys Knight) co-star. Another episode immediately follows.


The Curse of Oak Island

9 p.m. ET on HIST

As brothers Rick and Marty Lagina continue their obsessive treasure hunt in the new episode “Slipway When Wet,” a shocking new discovery at Smith’s Cove points to the theory that the origin of the famous Oak Island mystery could date back much further than most people have believed. There’s also a very real possibility that the secret in question could have far more profound implications than the treasure hunters ever imagined.



10 p.m. ET on TV LAND

As a rule, lovesick Ms. Bennigan (Katie O’Brien) is all in favor of her swoony boyfriend, Hot Dad (Ryan Caltagirone), doing sweet, unexpected things for her, but his latest gesture — surprising her with a visit from her parents — leads to confusion and some hurt feelings. Most of those are on Hot Dad’s part, because it quickly becomes evident that there’s a whole lot his sweetheart hasn’t told her parents about, in the new episode “Sidelined.”


My Great Big Live Wedding With David Tutera

10 p.m. ET on LIFE – Series Premiere
