Back on Board: Greg Louganis

HBO, 10:00 pm ET

Filmmaker Cheryl Furjanic got unprecedented access to Olympic gold medalist Greg Louganis for her award-winning and surprisingly candid 2014 documentary, which chronicles the complex life of the diving champion as he re-emerges to return to the sports world as a mentor to up-and-coming athletes. Louganis once dominated that world, yet occasionally it did not welcome his presence as an openly gay man who was also HIV-positive.

"JFK: One PM Central Standard Time" revisits the shooting of John F. Kennedy minute by minute, using the CBS News footage filmed that day in Dallas, and broadcasts fro the newsroom in New York. Walter Cronkite -- who famously teared up on the air in reporting the president's death -- Dan Rather, Bob Schieffer (who ended up having direct contact with Lee Harvey Oswald's wife), Marvin Kalb and Marianne Means are among the journalists featured.

Hollywood veteran Robert Wagner returns as DiNozzo's (Michael Weatherly) father in "The Artful Dodger," as the character lends his expertise in art to the team. A murder is connected to a rare painting that turns out to have been swapped with a copy, prompting a probe of the world of black-market art dealing.

America's Got Talent

NBC, 8:00 pm ET

A familiar face -- not only from this show, but from elsewhere as well -- pops up in the new episode "Judge Cuts 4," as former series regular Piers Morgan returns to the judging panel. He's given control of the Golden Buzzer, and whichever act he uses it for will head straight to the live shows at New York's Radio City Music Hall. The others have to compete as usual for judges Mel B, Heidi Klum, Howie Mandel and Howard Stern. Nick Cannon is the host.
