Bookmark and Share

Shark Tank (9pm, ABC) - Mark and Lori offer an entrepreneur an investment of $1 million, and an engineer runs into difficulty while discussing finances. Also, the makers of a peanut butter from Season 3 give an update on their business.

Great Performances: Paul Simon's Graceland Journey (9pm, UNC-TV) - The making of Paul Simon's 1986 "Graceland" album is recalled in this documentary, which accompanies the singer-songwriter on a visit to South Africa, where he reunites with some of the musicians involved in the recording.

Over/Under (10pm, USA) - This was originally supposed to be a new USA series, but it was scrapped after this two-hour pilot was filmed. Not because it was bad, but because its "darker tones" didn't really fit with the quirky "Characters Welcome" USA vibe. It's now a two-hour movie about a Manhattan day trader whose massive gambling problem costs him his job, forcing he and his photographer wife to relocate to Brooklyn. In Brooklyn, the man and a young father-to-be start a high-end bookie business. Stars Steve Pasquale, Caroline Dhavernas, Anthony Carrigan and "Breaking Bad" villain Giancarlo Esposito.

Blue Bloods (10pm, CBS) - Danny and Kate search for a sniper who appears to be a radical environmentalist. Meanwhile, Danny's youngest son is seriously injured in a bicycle accident.

The Dead Files (10pm, Travel) - Amy and Steve visit a Seattle restaurant, which they come to believe is haunted by spirits who want to cause harm. Also, evidence of a bloody massacre is uncovered.
