PICK OF THE DAY
“SCHITT’S CREEK” SEASON 5 FINALE (POP) AT 10 P.M. ET
Break out your best Moira Rose (Catherine O’Hara) wig, it’s time for the final episode of “Schitt’s Creek” Season Five. What better way to close a season than with a musical? The finale centers around a performance of “Cabaret.” Unfortunately, its star, Alexis (Annie Murphy) is nowhere to be found prior to curtains. Meanwhile, her brother David (Dan Levy) attempts to make a big announcement, but struggles to command the attention of the family. The season finale airs at 10 p.m. ET on Pop. The show has been renewed for one more season on Pop. However, season six will be the show’s last. Make sure to savor the last bits of “Schitt’s Creek” left.
“IN THE DARK” (CW) at 8 P.M. ET
Who doesn’t love a good murder mystery? Then CW’s latest show, “In the Dark,” might be for you. Murphy (Perry Mattfeld), a blind 20-something, drifts through her 20s in a drunken haze. The only two things that break through the clutter are her friends – Tyson (Thamela Mpumlwana), a teenager who saved her from a mugging, and Jess (Brooke Markham), her roommate. Murphy’s world gets shaken up one night when taking a walk with her guard dog. She comes across a dead body in her apartment’s alleyway that she believes to be Tyler. By the time the police arrive, the body disappears. While her days used to be filled with benders, now Murphy commits her time to figure out Tyler’s death. CW’s “In the Dark” premieres tonight at 8 p.m. ET.
“MUMMIES UNWRAPPED” (DISCOVERY) at 10 P.M. ET
How much do you know about mummies? Whether you’re an expert or a novice looking to learn, Discovery has you covered. “Mummies Unwrapped” premieres tonight at 10:13 p.m. after the season six premiere for “Expedition Unknown” (see writeup later on). The show employs Mummy expert Ramy Romany to debunk various mysteries related to mummies. The premiere episode tonight goes to an underwater grave that is believed to be guarded by a Mayan serpent deity. What Romany finds in the grave may be even more frightening.
“DARK SIDE OF THE RING” (VICE) at 9 P.M. ET
What happens in the ring doesn’t always stay in the ring. Viceland’s latest docuseries “Dark Side of the Ring,” for lack of a better word, tackles various wrestling controversies. The first episode begins tonight at 9 p.m. ET. While wrestling focuses on fighting, this first episode deals with love. Specifically, it dives into the tragic love story of Randy “Macho Man” Savage and Miss Elizabeth, his former manager and fellow wrestler. The show then expands further to look at the “Von Erich curse,” based upon the Von Erich wrestling empire. All episodes are narrated by former wrestler Dutch Mantell.
“EXPEDITION UNKNOWN” SEASON 5 PREMIERE (DISCOVERY) at 9 P.M. ET
Over the past five seasons, host Josh Gates has taken us to so many exotic, far away locales. His show, “Expedition Unknown,” returns for its sixth season tonight on Discovery at 9 p.m. ET. Where in the world will Gates take us this season? On the premiere episode, the show travels to the former Third Reich. What’s the goal? Legend speaks of a Nazi fortune, started by Hitler’s private secretary. The key to finding it supposedly lies in a piece of sheet music. Will we solve the mystery of this hidden Nazi treasure? Tune in to find out.
“HOMICIDE CITY” SEASON 2 PREMIERE (ID) AT 10 P.M. ET
Every American city comes with a sordid history of murders. With its return for a second season, “Homicide City” broadcasts more tales of American crime murders straight from the recollection of the detectives who led the investigations. We begin season two in Philadelphia, as the show looks at the murder of 18-month-old Devon Manderach. While the police suspect the parents, even they aren’t ready for the horrific twists in store for them. The second season premieres at 10 p.m. ET on Investigation Discovery.
MOVIES & SPECIALS ON TV
Can’t get enough of mummies tonight? You’re in luck. BBC America airs “The Mummy” at 8 p.m. ET. The 1999 Stephen Sommers film launched a franchise whose entries ranged from meh to yuck. However, the original accomplishes its mission of being a rolicking good time. The action/adventure film pairs Brendan Fraser with Rachel Weisz as an American adventurer and Egyptologies, respectively, who unwittingly unleash the wrath of Imhotep (Arnold Vasloo). Settle in and have a fun time traversing through the Egyptian deserts. Just make sure to stop after the first film in the franchise.
