BEST BETS

The Washington Times Daily - - LIFE - TMS MOVIE RAT­INGS:

Hair­spray Live!

/ 8:00pm (4) Pro­duc­ers Craig Zadan and Neil Meron con­tinue their an­nual tra­di­tion of stag­ing a live mu­si­cal with the hit show based on John Wa­ters’ pur­posely kitschy movie. The cast is filled with per­form­ing vet­er­ans in­clud­ing Kristin Chenoweth, Jen­nifer Hudson, Harvey Fier­stein and Martin Short — but new­comer Mad­die Bail­lio gets the cen­tral role of Tracy Turn­blad, a teen who at­tains her dream of danc­ing on a 1960s Bal­ti­more tele­vi­sion show, then lob­bies to in­te­grate it.

/ 8:30pm (7) Jimmy (John Ross Bowie) has reser­va­tions about JJ (Micah Fowler) join­ing a sled hockey team, though the squad and its mem­bers seem well-suited to the young man, in this new episode. Maya (Min­nie Driver) re­con­sid­ers her stance on Ken­neth (Cedric Yar­brough) when they take a CPR class to­gether and she ob­serves others’ very pos­i­tive re­ac­tions to him. Ma­son Cook and Kyla Kenedy also star.

Speech­less Vik­ings

/ 9:00pm (His­tory Ch) As Rag­nar (Travis Fim­mel) en­deav­ors to gather a crew and equip his voy­age to Wes­sex, the lo­cals of Kat­te­gat dis­ap­prov­ingly tell him their gods have de­serted him in a new episode called “The Vi­sion.” Else­where, an ex­cited Bjorn (Alexan­der Lud­wig) pre­pares to ful­fill his long-held dream of ex­plor­ing the Mediter­ranean.

/ 9:31pm (7) Dre (An­thony An­der­son) re­sists Bow’s (Tracee El­lis Ross) ap­peal to land Zoey (Yara Shahidi) a fel­low­ship in the new episode “Noth­ing but Nepo­tism.” Bow then uses her own con­tacts to help Zoey, prompt­ing Dre’s about-face. Ju­nior’s (Mar­cus Scrib­ner) in­ten­tion to be a good em­ployee back­fires when in­for­ma­tion he gives about his work­place gets it closed. Daveed Diggs (“Hamil­ton”) con­tin­ues his guest role, and Teen Vogue ed­i­tor Elaine Wel­teroth also ap­pears.
