Whether they’re bruising egos (“What’s something your partner thinks they’re good at, but really they aren’t?”) or flirting with disaster (“If I could date anyone from the 90 Day Fiancé universe other than my partner, who would it be?”), expect playful banter, plenty of eye-rolling, and a fresh glimpse into their lives.

Tonight is the 2-hour special A Spy in the FBI on Reelz at 8/7c. Robert Hanssen is a contradiction. On the surface he is a family man, devout Catholic, and career FBI agent. Secretly, he is a spy, betraying the trust of everyone he knows. In the final years of the Cold War, Hanssen positions himself within the FBI to spy for the Soviets, compromising sources and programs through the entire US counterintelligence community. While the FBI and CIA search for the mole in their midst, his fellow agents, friends, and family have no clue of his second life. His betrayal runs deeper that selling out his country as he is carrying on secret relationships and keeping secrets from his wife. But Hanssen can’t hide forever from the best detectives in the world. Former FBI agents and journalists recount Hanssen’s life, what drew him to espionage, how he stayed hidden in plain sight for over 20 years, and the events that brought down the most damaging spy in American history.

Overnight was the complete first season premiere of Where Murder Lies on Discovery+. Everyone is hiding something. It may be a harmless secret, or it might be something far more serious: a terrible betrayal of trust or a shocking indiscretion. Some of these come out over time, while others stay hidden forever.

Where Murder Lies gradually exposes murder investigations one truth after another, revealing the sinister underbelly beneath seemingly placid communities.

From growing up in a strong and resilient family, to being surrounded by the wild characters of his professional wrestling family, to playing football at the University of Miami, the show will explore the crazy rollercoaster that has shaped Dwayne into the man he is today and the larger-than-life characters he’s met along the way.

Tonight is also the 2-hour series premiere of The Black Church: This Is Our Story, This Is Our Song on PBS at 9/8c. This moving four-hour, two-part series from executive producer, host and writer Henry Louis Gates, Jr., the Alphonse Fletcher University Professor at Harvard University and director of the Hutchins Center for African and African American Research, traces the 400-year-old story of the Black church in America, all the way down to its bedrock role as the site of African American survival and grace, organizing and resilience, thriving and testifying, autonomy and freedom, solidarity and speaking truth to power. The documentary reveals how Black people have worshipped and, through their spiritual journeys, improvised ways to bring their faith traditions from Africa to the New World, while translating them into a form of Christianity that was not only truly their own, but a redemptive force for a nation whose original sin was found in their ancestors’ enslavement across the Middle Passage.

In each 30-minute episode, the show explores different survivors’ stories and analyzes their choice of avoiding confrontation to increase the likelihood of survival or fighting back as a last resort. Survivors join Gio Benitez to reflect on the incidents and have their voices heard. Alongside the testimonials, videos captured in vivid detail on smart security systems, hidden cameras, cell phones, and dash cams are highlighted and analyzed to help understand the events that took place. The series explores the difficult and split-second decisions a person must face when confronted with an act that threatens their life, safety or liberty.

Overnight was the complete limited series premiere of It’s a Sin on HBO Max. Set in 1981, Ritchie (Olly Alexander), Roscoe (Omari Douglas), and Colin (Callum Scott Howells) are young lads, strangers at first, leaving home at 18 and heading off to London with hope and ambition and joy…and walking straight into a virus that most of the world ignores. Year by year, episode by episode, crossing the whole decade, their lives change as the mystery of that illness starts as a rumor, then a threat, then a terror, and then something that binds them together in the fight. It’s the story of their friends, lovers and families too, especially Jill (Lydia West), the girl who loves them and helps them, and galvanizes them in the battles to come. Together they will endure the horror of the epidemic, the pain of rejection and the prejudices that gay men faced throughout the decade. There are terrible losses and wonderful friendships. And complex families, pushed to the limit and beyond. This is a series that remembers the boys we lost, and celebrates those lives that burned so brightly.
Tonight is the premiere of a three-part docuseries The Widower on NBC at 10/9c. The show goes behind the scenes of one of the country’s most confounding murder investigations, revealing a tale of evil and a tireless quest for justice in real time. The riveting docuseries features unprecedented and exclusive access to the alleged killer playing cat-and-mouse not just with investigators, but with “Dateline’s” cameras.
Tonight is also the complete first series premiere of Tell Me Your Secrets on Amazon at 12:01AM/11:01PMc. This is an intense, morally complex thriller starring Lily Rabe (American Horror Story), Amy Brenneman (The Leftovers), Hamish Linklater (Legion), and Enrique Murciano (The Blacklist). The series revolves around a trio of characters, each with a mysterious and troubling past: Emma (Rabe) is a young woman who once looked into the eyes of a dangerous killer, John (Linklater) is a former serial predator desperate to find redemption, and Mary (Brenneman) is a grieving mother obsessed with finding her missing daughter. As each of them is pushed to the edge, the truth about their pasts and motives grows ever murkier, blurring the lines between victim and perpetrator. Also starring is Murciano as Peter Guillory, a therapist with seemingly good intentions.

Overnight was a documentary special, The Chameleon Killer, on Discovery+. Decades after first uncovering the bodies of a woman and young girl discarded in a barrel in 1985, detectives take viewers through a convoluted case that led to the capture of an evasive serial killer who crisscrossed the country and used multiple fake identities to evade justice. With intersecting investigations across state lines, this intense special reveals how ancestral DNA exposes the Chameleon Killer’s true identity, and features never-before-seen interviews with his children and ex-wife who are forced to face the grim reality of who Terry Rasmussen really was.
Overnight was also the feature film special Flora & Ulysses on Disney+. Flora & Ulysses is a delightful comedy-adventure based on the Newbery Award-winning book about 10-year-old Flora, an avid comic book fan and a self-avowed cynic, whose parents have recently separated. After rescuing a squirrel she names Ulysses, Flora is amazed to discover he possesses unique superhero powers which take them on an adventure of humorous complications that ultimately change Flora’s life–and her outlook–forever.
Overnight was the premiere of the Netflix film special I Care A Lot. Rosamund Pike (Gone Girl, BeirutGame of Thrones), Eiza González Reyna (Baby DriverArgo).

The documentary special follows a group of beekeepers and scientists who must work together to protect their community from the dangerous insects after a beekeeper discovers his colony of 60,000 honeybees destroyed. At the center of the documentary is Washington State Department of Agriculture entomologist (or insect expert) Chris Looney, who is on a mission to track down the hornets. Joining him in the investigation are beekeepers Ted McFall and Ruthie Danielsen, government insect-expert Sven-Erik Spichiger, and Conrad Bérubé, the first person to destroy a Murder Hornet nest in North America.

    I really enjoy and appreciate your info. It is particularly disturbing when it is not there. Hope you are well and can carry on.

  2. Koolaid says:

    Wow I thought it would never happen. The Fat Old Guy on Hell’s kitchen this season actually is the last man standing.

  3. Ffej says:

    I’m confused. Fox lists Family Guy Ep19-10 as aired on 1-17-21. How is episode 18-09 on this week?
