Thursday TV: Diane Keaton Gets AFI Award

keaton-streep-1-2000Even Woody Allen showed up last week for the 45th AFI Life Achievement Award: A Salute to Diane Keaton (TNT, 10 p.m.), an event that also brought tributes from Al Pacino, Jane Fonda, Warren Beatty, Morgan Freeman, Reese Witherspoon, Sarah Silverman, Emma Stone, Steve Martin, Martin Short and Meryl Streep, wearing some “Annie Hall” duds.

The British crime drama “The Tunnel: Sabotage” (PBS, 9 p.m., check local listings) returns with a slightly different tunnel, owing to the fact that a plane also crashes into the English Channel near the site of an abduction investigation at the Eurutunnel. Originally closely based on the Scandinavian hit “The Bridge” (which had a successful U.S. adaptation as well), the series returns Clemence Posey and Stephen Dilate as detectives from different countries hoping to solve the events.

Morgan races the ice to get supplies on “Mountain Men” (History, 9 p.m.).

“Alaska: The Last Frontier: The Frozen Edge” (Animal Planet, 10 p.m.) has a cattle drive. Which qualifies the series for the Animal Planet.

I was hoping it was the old 80s soap acted out by animals, but “Dingo Dynasty” (National Geographic, 8 p.m.) is just a documentary on the wild dogs in Australia.

A tall oil platform is the subject of “Impossible Engineering” (Science, 9 p.m.).

“Paul Walker’s Fatal Crash” (Reelz, 9 p.m.) is about just that.
