Uncle Buck (9 p.m., ABC) – A new sitcom based on the 1989 John Candy film stars Mike Epps as the uncle who steps up to be a nanny for his brother’s kids when the family moves to town. Two back-to-back episodes tonight.

Animal Kingdom (9 p.m., TNT) – The trailer for this new drama has a definite “Sons of Anarchy” vibe, with Ellen Barkin as the matriarch of a crime family in Southern California. A second episode airs at 10.

O.J.: Made in America (9 p.m., ESPN) – In the second part of the riveting “30 for 30” documentary series, racial tensions overflow in Los Angeles while O.J. sits in his Brentwood mansion.

If you missed part one on Saturday, it repeats at 7 p.m. On the fence about whether or not to jump in? Then read our review for “O.J.: Made in America.”
