What’s On TV? – Monday (03/30/2020) – A&E Tries to Finally Get to the Bottom of One of America’s Most Notorious Cold Cases

What do you fancy tonight? Looking for family-fun (“Grease,” “Spider-Man: Far From Home,” “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off”), or reality TV shenanigans (“Love and Hip Hop,” “Below Deck Sailing Yacht”)? Or maybe you’re more in the mood for a good drama (“Soul Food,” ” Prodigal Son,” “The Plot Against America,” “Days of Thunder”) or something a little more educational (“Cosmos: Possible Worlds,” “How the Universe Works”). Whatever you’re in the mood for, Monday night has got what you’re looking for.

Pick of the Day:

“Hunting JonBenet’s Killer: The Untold Story” (A&E) at 8:00 p.m. ET

The JonBenet Ramsey case enveloped the entire country in 1996 and for many years to follow. In this new A&E investigative series, Elizabeth Vargas takes a fresh look at one of the most notorious cold cases in American history. In this deep dive, Vargas tracks down new leads with a new DNA test in the hopes of bringing peace to the Ramsey family. This untold story is laid out with an exclusive interview with John Ramsey as well as many never-before-seen photos while dissecting the numerous “intruder theories” of the crime.

Movies on TV:

“Grease” (BBC) 7:00 PM ET

Grease (1978) Directed by Randal Kleiser Shown in the foreground from left: Jeff Conaway, Olivia Newton-John, John Travolta, Stockard Channing

Looking for a fun time tonight? Tune in to BBC America to join the T’birds and The Pink Ladies while they embark on a new school year. Follow good girl Sandy and greaser Danny after they are reunited after a summer fling. Filled with memorable songs (“Summer Nights” “Greased Lightning” and “Beauty School Dropout”), fun dance sequences and a young all-star cast (John Travolta, Olivia Newton-John, Jeff Conaway and Stockard Channing), “Grease” is a feel-good time and a classic for the entire family.

“Gosford Park” (Flix) 9:45 p.m. ET

If you’re looking for a high-class mystery dramedy, look no further than “Gosford Park.” This story revolves around the investigation of a murder at a party in a country house in England in 1932. Pitting the lives of the upstairs guests against the downstairs servants, they must untangle the lives and connections of everyone gathered at the estate. Think Agatha Christie whodunit mixed with a dissertation on the English class system and a little “Downton Abbey” for good measure. Filled with top British talent (Maggie Smith, Michael Gambon, Kristin Scott Thomas, Jeremy Northam, Helen Mirren, Emily Watson, Richard E. Grant, Charles Dance, Stephen Fry, Kelly Macdonald, and Derek Jacobi) and nominated for 7 Oscars in 2001 (winning one for Best Original Screenplay), Robert Altman‘s “Gosford Park” charms the audience with well fleshed out characters and lots of drama.

“Days of Thunder” (TMC) 10:00 p.m. ET

In this 1990 action-drama “Days of Thunder,” a young hot-shot stock car driver (Tom Cruise) gets his chance to compete at the top level. Also starring Robert Duvall, Nicole Kidman, Randy Quaid, Cary Elwes, and John C. Reilly, this adrenaline-filled film, made by the same team that brought you “Top Gun,” takes viewers into the high-pressure world of NASCAR racing with a little romance mixed in. It’s loud, action-packed, and drama-filled and well worth the watch tonight.
