White House Correspondents Dinner (6 p.m. CSPAN, 7 p.m. CNN, 9 p.m. MSNBC) – Do yourself a favor and catch this on MSNBC, or record one of the others and fast-forward to President Obama’s speech, which is always hilarious, and host Larry Wilmore’s speech that follows. The rest will be painfully boring. Wilmore, host of “The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore” on Comedy Central, promises to skewer Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump pretty hard, so whichever side you’re on, take note. Trump (subject of many birther jokes at the 2011 event, which he attended) has said he will not attend the year.

Jazz at the White House (8 p.m., ABC) – President Obama and the first lady host a concert featuring Herbie Hancock, Sting, Aretha Franklin, Trombone Shorty, Diana Krall, and others.

Seduced (8 p.m., Lifetime) – Two women join forces to bring down the dangerous con man who simultaneously romanced and duped them.

My Cat From Hell (8 p.m., Animal Planet) – Jackson Galaxy helps a soft-spoken musician who is ashamed that she can’t control her abusive cat.

Chris Hardwick: Funcomfortable (10 p.m., Comedy Central) – In this new comedy special, comedian Chris Hardwick discusses a strange experience with a blowup doll and how inappropriate humor helped him cope with his father’s death.
