Battle of the 80s ­Supercars with David Hasselhoff

8 p.m. ET on HISTORY

If you thought KITT, the iconic supercar on the 1980s action series “Knight Rider,” was the stuff of fantasy and nothing else, think again. In this two-hour special, actor David Hasselhoff, who played crime-fighter Michael Knight on that TV show, shows how KITT actually revolutionized the real-world car industry. The special climaxes with a race featuring — in addition to Hasselhoff and KITT — other stars and their wheels such as Dirk Benedict in the “A-Team” van and “CHiPs” star Erik Estrada with his motorcycle.

Marrying Millions

10 p.m. ET on LIFETIME - Series Premiere

The creative team behind "90 Day Fiancé" also devised this new unscripted series, which examines the love lives of six fiscally mismatched couples. In each case, one partner is extremely affluent and the other is, um, not. That leaves the couples trying to become comfortable in each other's worlds while weathering gossip that one of them is a gold-digger. The series premiere, "Can't Buy My Love," features Brianna, 21, who is ill at ease with the friends of Bill, who is 40 years her senior.
