I Am the Night (9 p.m., TNT) - This new dramatic series starring Chris Pine and India Eisley tells the story of a young girl named Fauna Hodel (Eisley) who is given away at birth and grows up to investigate the secrets of her past with the help of a reporter (Pine). Their investigation leads to an infamous Los Angeles doctor involved in some of Hollywood’s darkest deeds — possibly including the unsolved Black Dahlia murder. This six-episode limited series is inspired by true events. There’s a companion podcast hosted by Fauna Hodel’s daughters called “Root of Evil: The Story of the Hodel Family and the Black Dahlia.”
The Bachelor (8 p.m., ABC) - We love drama, but there was almost too much of it last week between 2018 Miss North Carolina USA Caelynn Miller-Keyes and her Miss Alabama rival Hannah Brown. Unfortunately (fortunately?), it’s not over tonight. Colton has a one-on-one date with Caelynn tonight, and host Chris Harrison has hyped this date as an extremely emotional one. Apparently, Caelynn shares a deeply personal story with Colton and it prompts Colton to share some personal things, too.
The King (9 p.m., PBS / UNC-TV) - In this Independent Lens documentary, filmmaker Eugene Jarecki takes Elvis Presley’s 1963 Rolls-Royce on a musical road trip across America. Jarecki travels from Memphis to New York to Las Vegas and beyond, tracing the rise and fall of the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll as a metaphor for the American Dream. It features Emmylou Harris, Roseanne Cash, Ethan Hawke, Alec Baldwin, Chuck D., Dan Rather, Van Jones, Mike Myers and others.
