The Wonderful World of Disney Presents The Little Mermaid Live!

8 p.m. on ABC

Airing to mark the 30th anniversary of Disney’s beloved 1989 animated musical version of the Hans Christian Andersen fairy tale, this two-hour special is a hybrid that features live musical performances by cast members that are woven into the original feature film. Auli’i Cravalho (“Moana”) appears as Ariel, the titular mermaid, while Queen Latifah plays Ursula the sea witch and Graham Phillips (“The Good Wife”) plays Prince Eric. Grammy-winning musical artist Shaggy voices the tiny crab Sebastian, while John Stamos appears as Chef Louis.


The Curse of Oak Island

9 p.m. on HISTORY – Season Premiere

Treasure hunters Rick and Marty Lagina return for Season 7 of their unscripted series, picking up the action with a revelation that closed out Season 6, when seismic testing revealed that a sunken ship may be buried in the triangle-shaped swamp. As the new season opens, Rick, Marty and their team go back to Oak Island, determined to honor the legacy of the late treasure hunter Dan Blankenship, who began this quest back in the 1970s.


NCIS: New Orleans

10 p.m. ET on CBS

Still reeling from his brother’s murder, Lasalle (Lucas Black) embarks on a quest for revenge by tracking a drug ring he believes was responsible for the killing in the new episode “Matthew 5:9.” Elsewhere, while Pride (Scott Bakula) is assisting with the case, he crosses paths with Eddie Barrett (guest star Eddie Cahill), an elusive type who obviously knows far more than he’s willing to share. Vanessa Ferlito also stars.


Mayans M.C.

10 p.m. ET on FX – Season Finale

This gritty crime drama, a sequel to the critically acclaimed “Sons of Anarchy,” wraps up Season 2 with a finale from series co-creator Kurt Sutter (who also created the original “Sons”) called “Hunahpu.” As this season reaches its climax, an undeniable hunger for justice forces the Reyes brothers (J.D. Pardo, Clayton Cardenas) and their motorcycle club to weigh some difficult decisions. FX has not yet announced whether this show will return for a third season.
