Overnight was the 70-minute special Attenborough: Behind the Lens on AMC+. With the culmination of his epic series about the planet, the world expected Sir David Attenborough to call an end to his extraordinary 65 career, but the lure of innovative technology led him to the most prolific period of his career; with classic clips, new footage and interviews, the documentary looks at the man behind the screen, and reveals Sir David Attenborough as he has never been seen before. The special will also air on BBC America at 8/7c.
Tonight is the TV movie Dream Wedding on GAC Family at 8/7c. Sisters Kate (Rebecca Dalton) and Megan (Christa Taylor Brown) attend a local wedding fair and jokingly enter Kate in a raffle for a dream wedding package, though she has no current plans to marry. When Kate wins, the sisters must put on a show or be mortified by the joke gone awry. It also stars Jesse Hutch (Blessings of Christmas, B&B Merry).
Tonight is the TV movie Napa Ever After on Hallmark at 8/7c. After inheriting her estranged grandmother’s winery in Napa Valley, Cassandra (Denise Boutté), a high-powered attorney, takes a sabbatical from her job to renovate the property that was the source of the fractures within her family. With the help of handsome local Alec (Colin Lawrence), she learns more about the grandmother she hardly knew and is able to reconcile the past, while finally opening herself up to a love like she’s never known.

    Star Wars: Ahsoka was moved to Tuesday

      I believe it’s overnight on Tuesday night, but because it’s at 3:01 ET, I put those on the next day, since everyone in the US is now considered Wednesday morning at that point. 🙂 That’s how I’ve always done it, so… Unless you mean it’s moved to overnight Monday night/early Tuesday morning…
