Madoff (8 p.m., ABC) - The week of dubious criminal bio-dramas continues with Richard Dreyfuss’ portrayal of Bernie Madoff, the mastermind of the biggest financial fraud in U.S. history. The two-night movie event, which details Madoff’s elaborate con in a cogent yet entertaining way, also stars Blythe Danner as Madoff’s wife, Ruth. Dreyfuss is plenty convincing as the alternately cool and extremely high-strung crook. Part 2 airs Tuesday at 8. (Note: Robert De Niro and Michelle Pfeiffer will star in a Madoff movie coming this year to HBO).

Mike & Molly (8:30 p.m., CBS) - Molly is stunned when she learns Joyce has decided to leave the house to Joyce in her will.

Chicago PD (10 p.m., NBC) - Lindsay goes undercover in hopes of finding a police officer who targets women leaving a local casino.
