Doubt / 8:00pm (13) Echo­ing the show’s ti­tle, Sadie (Kather­ine Heigl) de­vel­ops doubts about Billy’s (Steven Pasquale) in­no­cence when he gives a less than sat­is­fac­tory re­sponse to fresh ev­i­dence against him in the new episode “Poi­son Prize,” An­other case places the firm on the verge of a ma­jor con­tro­versy. Cameron and Tif­fany’s (Lav­erne Cox, Dreama Walker) lat­est client is an al­legedly thiev­ing psy­chic. Guest stars in­clude Lisa Ann Wal­ter and Wil­son Cruz. Dule Hill also stars.

MOVIE “Lov­ing” / 8:00pm (HBO) 2:10am (HBO) Jeff Ni­chols’ 2016 his­tor­i­cal drama didn’t blow the roof off the North Amer­i­can box of­fice, but it earned glow­ing re­views for its mov­ing ac­count of how mixe­drace cou­ple Richard and Mil­dred Lov­ing (Joel Edgerton, Ruth Negga) took their case to the Supreme Court af­ter be­ing held in vi­o­la­tion of a Vir­ginia law pro­hibit­ing in­ter­ra­cial mar­riage. Both leads re­ceived Golden Globe nods for their per­for­mances; Negga also was nom­i­nated for an Os­car as best ac­tress.

MOVIE “Get Hard” / 8:00pm (TNT) The dif­fer­ing comedic styles of Will Fer­rell and Kevin Hart are the main sources of hu­mor in this 2015 tale of a fi­nan­cial man­ager (Fer­rell) be­ing sent to prison for un­eth­i­cal prac­tices. He de­cides he’d bet­ter toughen up be­fore he gets there, so he seeks ad­vice from a man (Hart) he pre­sumes to be an ex-con — which turns out not to be the case, but they be­come al­lies any­way. De­but­ing di­rec­tor Etan Co­hen co-wrote the script. Costars in­clude Ali­son Brie.

Brad Ke­selowski de­fends his ti­tle in the Coke Zero 400 on NBC.
