BEST BETS

The Washington Times Daily - - TELEVISION -

MLB Base­ball / 8:00pm (ESPN) Two Na­tional League East teams with great pitch­ing, that will be see­ing lot of each other this sea­son, wrap up a week­end se­ries as Jay Bruce and the New York Mets host the Wash­ing­ton Na­tion­als. It was the Nats who won the di­vi­sion last sea­son while the Mets, who went to the World Se­ries in 2015, fell in last year’s Wild Card game af­ter ac­quir­ing Bruce to be their right fielder and slug­ger in a mid-sea­son trade. MOVIE “New York Prison Break: The

Se­duc­tion of Joyce Mitchell” / 8:00pm (Life­time) 12:02am (Life­time) Pene­lope Ann Miller takes the ti­tle role in this new fact-based TV movie, which chron­i­cles how a mar­ried mother of three al­lowed her­self to be se­duced by two charm­ing in­mates (Myk Wat­ford, Joe An­der­son). Sub­se­quently, she helped the men, con­victed mur­der­ers Richard Matt and David Sweat, es­cape from the Clin­ton Cor­rec­tional Fa­cil­ity in up­state New York in 2015. She even briefly con­sid­ered killing her hus­band and join­ing the fugi­tives on their flight to Mex­ico. Feud: Bette and Joan / 10:00pm (fX) 11:21pm (fX) 1:45am (fX) Sea­son 1 of this crit­i­cally ac­claimed — and let’s ad­mit, in­sanely en­ter­tain­ing — an­thol­ogy se­ries wraps with “You Mean All This Time We Could Have Been Friends?,” a poignant episode that echoes one of Baby Jane Hud­son’s lines for its ti­tle. Be­fore fade­out, Joan (Jes­sica Lange) ac­cepts a lead­ing role on a new film de­spite in­creas­ingly se­ri­ous health is­sues. Mean­while, faced with a new ri­val, Bette (Su­san Saran­don) re­flects on the man­u­fac­tured feud into which she and Joan al­lowed oth­ers to thrust them.

Mary Kills Peo­ple / 10:02pm (Life­time) 11:02pm (Life­time) 2:04am (Life­time) 3:04am (Life­time) Dr. Mary Harris (Caro­line Dhav­er­nas, “Hannibal”), an emer­gency room physi­cian, is forced to walk a tricky eth­i­cal line be­tween what she knows is morally right and what she also knows is il­le­gal as she moon­lights covertly as an an­gel of death, of­fer­ing as­sis­tance to suf­fer­ing pa­tients who want to end their lives on their own terms.

Su­san Saran­don stars in “Feud: Bette and joan” Sun­day on FX.
