Here’s what’s up in the world of TV for Monday, April 27. All times are Eastern.

Top pick

Tales Of The Grim Sleeper (HBO, 9 p.m.): HBO continues on its streak of culturally relevant and impressive documentaries with Tales Of The Grim Sleeper, which looks at the case of Lonnie Franklin Jr., a man accused of murdering anywhere from 20 to 100 women over the span of 25 years. In his pre-air review, Noel Murray writes the documentary doubles as an inquiry into race and crime in the United States.


Regular coverage

Gotham (Fox, 8 p.m.)

Bates Motel (A&E, 9 p.m.)

RuPaul’s Drag Race (Logo, 9 p.m.)

Jane The Virgin (The CW, 9 p.m.)

WWE Monday Night Raw (USA, 8 p.m.)

Elsewhere in TV Club

TV Club is taking over Watch This this week to tell you all about the best episodes of shows based on books. First up, Erik Adams talks Gossip Girl and the sidelining of Kristen Bell in “Blair Waldorf Must Pie!” starring Leighton “Set It On Fire” Meester and some other people.


What else is on?

The Voice (NBC, 8 p.m.): America messed up by sending Team Christina’s Rob Taylor home last week. Don’t mess up this time, America!


The Following (Fox, 9 p.m.): “A hostage situation develops on the day of Joe Carroll’s execution and Ryan is forced to enter the facility alone.” We’re all very surprised that the execution of Joe Carroll does not go as planned.

The Originals (The CW, 8 p.m.): The phrases “startling details,” “enticing proposition,” and “opposing ideas,” “looming deadline,” “intriguing offer,” and “difficult decision” are used in the TV Guide synopsis of tonight’s episode of The Originals, but they could be used to describe any episode of The Originals.


The Night Shift (NBC, 10 p.m.): Maybe it’s time for us to all start watching The Night Shift. Maybe The Night Shift won’t hurt us in the ways Grey’s Anatomy does. Tonight, Timothy Busfield guest stars, so hey, that’s something.

X-Men: First Class (FX, 8 p.m.): Watch the love story of Charles Xavier and Erik Lehnsherr, uh, we mean the origin story of Professor X and Magneto.


Saw, Saw II, Saw III, Saw IV (Syfy, 6:30 p.m.): Syfy is running a Saw marathon from 6:30 p.m. until 1:30 a.m. if you want to make your Monday evening a little more high-stakes and traumatizing.

MLB Baseball: Nationals at Braves (ESPN, 7 p.m.): Washington faces Atlanta at Turner Field.


In case you missed it

Veep: Veep continues its hot streak with the tense, hilarious “Data.”
