David Cassidy: The Last Session (9 p.m., A&E) — A two-hour special exploring the life of former teen star David Cassidy during his final days, including never-before-heard audio tapes from 1976 and a raw and poignantly filmed final recording session. In this sad but fascinating film, Cassidy admits to producers that he lied about having dementia, confirming that his public episodes of slurred speech and forgetting words to songs were due his battle with alcoholism. Cassidy died of liver failure in November 2017.
