Today’s Top 5 Picks

Zoey Johnson (Yara Shahidi) and her friends return for a summer session of new episodes, following the spring midseason cliffhanger that left several characters at a crossroads.

2019 CMT Music Awards

Award-winning group Little Big Town hosts this year’s edition of an awards show in which fans select the winners via online voting.

What Keeps You Alive

9:05 p.m. ET on SHOWTIME – Premiere

Filmed primarily in Muskoka, Ontario, writer-director Colin Minihan’s modestly budgeted but effective 2018 Canadian thriller opens as Jackie (Hannah Emily Anderson) takes wife Jules (Brittany Allen) to a remote cabin for a romantic trip to celebrate their first anniversary. Red flags start to appear almost immediately, however, when a childhood friend (Martha MacIsaac) of Jackie’s drops by and calls Jackie “Megan.” Joey Klein and Charlotte Lindsay Marron also star in this chiller, which received favorable reviews both for its cast and taut storytelling.


Lone Star Justice

10 p.m. ET on ID – Series Premiere

Sheriff J.B. Smith of Smith County, Texas, leads his handpicked detectives in investigations into a variety of local crimes in this new unscripted series. In the premiere, “She Had Everything,” young Nate Anderson finds the bullet-riddled body of his older sister Amanda, a college student. Leads are scarce until forensics spots a tiny crime scene detail.


The Employables

10:01 p.m. ET on A&E

In the new episode “Don’t Judge My Book Cover,” Victoria, 25, has had occasional success in concealing her autism spectrum disorder from prospective employers, but Gabe’s Tourette syndrome manifests as tics in nearly every part of his body, including his eyes.
