What to Watch on Tuesday: "Two Escobars" examines soccer and violence

30 for 30: The Two Escobars (9pm, ESPN) - A two-hour documentary from Jeff and Michael Zimbalis examining the influence of drugs in the world of Colombian soccer. Zimbalis shows the surprising connections between the deaths of soccer star Andres Escobar, who was murdered because of a mistake on the field that cost Colombia a shot at the World Cup, and drug baron Pablo Escobar.

HawthoRNe (9pm, TNT) - The second season premieres with Richmond Trinity out of business and several staffers working at a decaying hospital in a bad neighborhood.

Deadliest Catch (9pm, Discovery) - Tonight marks the first of four episodes chronicling in detail the real life death of Captain Phil Harris (right), one of the show's stars who died in February of this year. Harris had a stroke on his ship, the Cornelia Marie, and died two weeks later.

Downfall (9pm, ABC) - Right after "Wipeout" ABC premieres a new game show in which contestants atop at ten-story building answer trivia questions to keep a conveyor belt from dumping prizes over the side of the building. This sounds stupid, so it'll probably be a huge hit.

Memphis Beat (10pm, TNT) - A new crime drama starring Jason Lee as an offbeat Memphis detective whose style irritates his boss (Alfre Woodard). In the opening episode Det. Dwight he investigates the abuse of an elderly female disc jockey. Should you watch? Check out Adrienne's review.
