PICK OF THE DAY
“America’s Got Talent: The Champions” (NBC) Finale at 8 p.m. ET
The best of the best have been narrowed down. “America’s Got Talent: The Champions” pits all of the previous winners against each other to crown the true best of the best. Twelve acts remain on the finale. Five advanced immediately from the preliminary week, including singer Susan Boyle and extreme knife throwers Deadly Games. Another five advanced through super-fan votes, such as comedian Preacher Lawson and opera singer Paul Potts. The last two spots went to judges’ wild card contestants Jon Dorenbos (magician) and Darci Lynne Farmer (ventriloquist). Who will walk away a champion among champions? Tune in to find out.
“The Secret History of Air Force One” (History) at 10 p.m. ET
How much do you know about Air Force One? The History Channel takes a look at the history of the President’s official aircraft through the years. This includes insider interviews, new archival footage and further research with historians to uncover new facts about the famed plane. From the bi-plane Teddy Roosevelt used to our current Boeing 747, the one hour special gives viewers an in-depth look at the history and evolution of Presidential transport.
“Children of the Snow” (ID) at 9 p.m. ET
The prosperous ‘70s boom for Detroit comes to a sharp halt upon the murder of four children by the Oakland County Child Killer. Threats and appearances of the serial killer haunted the area for 13 months before the killings stopped. The 2 night event “Children of the Snow” follows one Detroit resident from that period, J. Rueben Appelman as he teams up with Detective Cory Williams to find answers to the murders. The first two parts of the story airs tonight at 9 p.m. ET. The remaining two parts will air on ID tomorrow night at 9 p.m. ET.
“Manifest” hopes to touch down for a smooth finale. The fall’s #1 new drama finishes its first season tonight at 10 p.m. ET. This first season saw members of Montego Air Flight 828 deal with the fact that 5 years had passed between their departure and arrival. The finale promises another disturbing link between the 828 passengers that could provide answers to their mysterious predicament. Tune in at 10 p.m. ET on NBC, following “America’s Got Talent: The Champions,” to be all caught up.
MOVIES ON TV
Looking for a movie to watch tonight? HBO features two exciting and different movie premieres. At 8 p.m. ET, HBO premieres “United Skates,” a look at the last remaining roller rinks. The underground African American roller skating community that frequents these roller rinks have been on the ground floor of many great musical talents, such as Queen Latifah and N.W.A. In conjunction with looking at the history of roller rinks in the music scene, the documentary spotlights three skaters fighting to save these neighborhood institutions. John Legend serves as executive producer on the project. Additionally, it features interviews from Salt-N-Pepa, Coolio, Naughty By Nature’s Vin Rock and World Class Wreckin’ Cru.
Not in the mood for a documentary? Flip the channel to HBO2 and check out their premiere of “Deadpool 2,” last year’s hit superhero comedy. No, this is not the edited “Once Upon a Deadpool” nonsense that came into theaters last year. Tune in at 8:30 p.m. ET to catch the full, unedited R-rated raunch fest that dominated the box office this past summer. This sequel finds Deadpool (Ryan Reynolds) teaming up with some new superhero faces to take down Cable (Josh Brolin), a genetically enhanced time traveling soldier.
