Overnight was the series premiere of Pushing the Line on Discovery+. Friends and rivals try to walk thin, nylon ropes stretched 500 feet in the air. On the line, the daredevils push each other to try increasingly dangerous stunts and break records. Off the line, who’s hooking up and who’s breaking up adds more tension.
Tonight is the series premiere of Meerkat Manor: Rise of the Dynasty on BBC America at 8/7c. Once again narrated by Bill Nighy, this new series continues the compelling saga of the heartstring-tugging, dramatic tale of survival revolving around three families of meerkats who are descendants of the legendary meerkat matriarch, Flower. Neighbors and rivals who share a bloodline are forced to compete for food and resources in an environment that is undergoing a great deal of change: the Kalahari Desert in South Africa.

Tonight is a 131-minute “Crikey! It’s a Baby!” special for Crikey! It’s the Irwins! at 8/7c. Special moments leading up to the birth of Bindi and Chandler’s daughter, Grace Warrior Irwin Powell, including their homecoming as a family to Australia Zoo.
Tonight is the TV movie Gone Mom on Lifetime at 8/7c. Based on a true story, the movie details the story of Jennifer Dulos (Annabeth Gish), the wealthy, Connecticut mother-of-five who mysteriously vanished on May 24, 2019. Jennifer believed she had found her Prince Charming in Fotis Dulos (Warren Christie), but by the time of her disappearance, their marriage had all but disintegrated and the estranged couple was engaged in a contentious custody dispute. After she disappeared without a trace, after dropping off their children at school, police turned the spotlight on Fotis, who claimed Jennifer staged her own disappearance ala the film, Gone Girl. Despite his assertions, investigators charged Fotis with murder in January 2020 but just weeks later, Fotis committed suicide, still claiming his innocence. To this date, the body of Jennifer has not been found.
Tonight is the Hallmark movie You Had Me at Aloha at 9/8c. When the host of a popular travel show resigns, the network enlists Paige (Pascale Hutton), to step in for the next season set in Hawaii. Unbeknownst to her, they have also hired Ben (Kavan Smith), who likes to push everything to the extreme. As these two new co-hosts clash over their opposing ideas for production, they grapple with the fact that not only do they need each other to further their careers, but they also balance each other on and off the screen.
Finally, tonight is the special Beyond the Headlines: The Jennifer Dulos Story on Lifetime at 10:03/9:03c. A look at the marriage of Jennifer Dulos and Fotis Dulos through the point of view of those closest to them, as well as the police investigation, murder charges and Fotis Dulos’ suicide.
