The Wonderful World of Disney Presents The Little Mermaid Live! on ABC at 8:00pm ET. Original telefilm. There is still a live action film scheduled to begin production in early 2020, the one with Halle Bailey as Ariel. In the meantime, though, we have this live musical event with Auli’i Cravalho as Ariel, Queen Latifah as Ursula, Shaggy as Sebastian, and John Stamos as Chef Louis. Oh, and Graham Phillips as Prince Eric, but honestly as a kid the chef made a larger impression on me than Eric who was basically a human MacGuffin in a lot of ways.
Empire on Fox at 9:00pm ET.
This Is Us on NBC at 9:00pm ET.
Famously Afraid on Travel Channel at 10:00pm ET. Series premiere. This is a new series where “celebrities” tell “their terrifying, true tales of encounters with the supernatural and unexplained - from hauntings to UFO sightings, to demonic possessions and beyond.” Tonight’s celebrities are Howie Mandel and Chloe Lukasiak but if you’re into celebrity ghost stories I’d recommend the middle bits of Jenny Slate’s Netflix special.
Mayans M.C. on FX at 10:00pm ET.
