Today’s Top Picks


Ad Astra

8 p.m. ET on CINEMAX – Premiere

James Gray’s 2019 sci-fi adventure is one of those baffling examples of a critically acclaimed film failing to click with mainstream audiences, but while it may have lost money on its initial theater run, this beautiful movie is finally finding a new audience on cable and home video. Brad Pitt stars as an astronaut who ventures into space in search of his long-lost father (Tommy Lee Jones), who was last associated with a project that now threatens the solar system. Ruth Negga, Liv Tyler and Donald Sutherland also star.


Little Women: Atlanta

9 p.m. ET on LIFETIME

After the unpleasant showdown with the Twins, Abira gains some valuable perspective on how being little has affected her perspective on life in the new episode “Miss Management.” Meanwhile, the Twins put Minnie on notice, and Andrea makes her first attempt to walk the runway. When a St. Patrick’s Day gig goes off track, Juicy reacts in typical fashion by insulting the rest of the girls.


NBA Basketball

10 p.m. ET on ESPN

A clash of cross-state rivals goes down tonight at Toyota Center, where John Wall and the Houston Rockets defend home court from Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks. These teams have met twice this season, each winning on the road, the most recent being in early January when Doncic’s 33 points, 16 rebounds and 11 assists paved the way for a 113-100 Mavericks victory.


Hip Hop Uncovered

10:18 p.m. ET on FX

As the drug game starts to dry up in the streets, the new hip hop hustle emerges in the new episode “Things Just Ain’t the Same for Gangstas.” After time in prison, the five main contributors move to Atlanta. Meanwhile, Bimmy is hired at Def Jam, and Trick Trick records his first album.
