Today’s Top Picks


First Man

7:35 p.m. ET on CINEMAX – Premiere

An Academy Award for best visual effects went to Damien Chazelle’s 2018 biographical drama, adapted by screenwriter Josh Singer from James R. Hansen’s book “First Man: The Life of Neil A. Armstrong.” Leading man Ryan Gosling received excellent reviews for his performance as Armstrong, as did Claire Foy (“The Crown”) for her portrayal of Janet Shearon Armstrong, the astronaut’s first wife. The strong acting ensemble also includes Jason Clarke, Kyle Chandler, Corey Stoll, Pablo Schreiber and Christopher Abbott.



8 p.m. ET on LIFETIME

Child-rearing expert Jo Frost comes to the rescue of Ian and Jamie Orr, exhausted parents to four rambunctious children. Their oldest son, Julian, is particularly trying since his questionable addiction to violent video games leads to terrifying nightmares after he goes to bed. Moreover, all the kids are picky eaters, refusing to consume almost anything that isn’t fried and unhealthy — cooking chores that fall on Jamie, who works full-time outside the home, even though Ian works from their residence.


Kindred Spirits

8 p.m. ET on TRAVEL

Paranormal investigators Amy Bruni and Adam Berry bring psychic medium Chip Coffey along on a trip to a bleak, desolate island off the coast of Newport, R.I., in a new episode called “Keeper of the Light.” On this site — where disease and disaster have been given free rein over the years — dark spirits have gathered to fester, inevitably leading to reports of chilling paranormal activity from both employees and guests.


Shahs of Sunset

9 p.m. ET on BRAVO

GG wrestles with the consequences of trying to conceal her IVF from the group in the new episode “Pool Party Massacre,” but the stress makes her start to worry that all this drama is taking a toll on her health. Elsewhere, Sara clashes with Destiney over the latter’s liaison with Sara’s brother during the group trip to Las Vegas, Mike remains shaken by Nema’s painful accusations about him and Paulina, and Nema’s plan to restore the peace at Sara’s pool party backfires spectacularly.
