What’s On TV? – Monday, 10/21/19 – Fierce Women and True-Life Stories

Tonight, strong women are taking center-stage, from “Catherine the Great” to “Wonder Woman” and “Lara Croft Tomb Raider.” Whether you’re looking for historical drama and backstabbing or some a little more modern day (“The Devil Wears Prada”), Monday night’s got you covered. Or if sitcoms or procedural dramas are more your speed (“All Rise,” “Bluff City Law,” “Bob ♥ Abishola,” or “Live PD”), we’ve got that too.

Pick of the Day:

“Catherine the Great” (HBO) at 10:00 p.m. ET

Tonight, HBO premieres the first episode of their new miniseries on Russian Empress “Catherine the Great.” Filled with scandal, drama and intrigue, this new series tells the story of the historic tsarina and her unique relationship with Grigory Potemkin, who helped mold modern-day Russia. Starring Helen Mirren (who has a knack for portraying historical royalty) and Jason Clarke, this is bound to be an intriguing and engaging historical account.
