1 The Na­ture of Things

8 p.m. on (NW)

Who knew that Earth’s big­gest mi­gra­tion was ver­ti­cal, not hor­i­zon­tal? In the new doc­u­men­tary “Ocean Magic at Night,” cam­era­man and marine bi­ol­o­gist Rick Rosen­thal cap­tures for the first time footage of some of the bil­lions of an­i­mals who nightly make a long trek from the depths of the ocean to its sur­face to feed, then at dawn be­gin the long dive back into the deep. The deep-sea ex­plo­ration team at the Monterey Bay (Calif.) Aquar­ium Re­search In­sti­tute as­sists him on the pro­ject.

2 My Best Friend’s Wed­ding

8:10 p.m. on (TMNE)

The pretty woman gets pretty de­vi­ous in this 1997 hit ro­man­tic com­edy. Ju­lia Roberts plays food critic Ju­lianne Pot­ter, who de­cides her best buddy (Der­mot Mul­roney) should be more than that and pulls out all the stops to keep him from mar­ry­ing some­one else (Cameron Diaz). Rupert Everett drew raves from crit­ics and fe­male fans for his por­trayal of Ge­orge, Ju­lianne’s gay friend and co-con­spir­a­tor. 3 Après Ski

9 p.m. on (SLICE)

Newly ap­pointed man­ager Jim has just one week to prove his team de­serves to come back for an­other sea­son in “Last Run,” the sea­son fi­nale. Bobby, mean­while, is ex­tremely un­happy about Jim’s pro­mo­tion, but when he meets with Joey to chal­lenge that move, he’s too hun­gover from a party the night be­fore to be very per­sua­sive. Lynsey’s hard-drink­ing clients from Texas are work­ing her last nerve, so she tries to find a way to sat­isfy them while keep­ing them away from the booze. 4 Border­town

9:30 p.m. on (FOX-R)

Surely top­i­cal, as any ob­server of cur­rent political mat­ter will rec­og­nize im­me­di­ately, this new an­i­mated se­ries con­cerns the re­la­tions be­tween two fam­i­lies liv­ing on the bor­der of the United States and Mex­ico. A Bor­der Pa­trol agent (voice of Hank Azaria) feels com­pet­i­tive to­ward a wellto-do im­mi­grant neigh­bor (voice of Ni­cholas Gon­za­lez). “The En­gage­ment” — as this first episode is called — of two of their rel­a­tives doesn’t help mat­ters.
