Monday TV: Making of ‘Imagine’ and Punk

John&YokoTwo strong music documentaries are on tonight.

The British-made “John & Yoko: Above Us Only Sky” (A&E, 9 p.m.) is about the making of the “Imagine” album, whose title track was pretty much based on a Yoko Ono idea and was originally intended as a B-side to “Give Me Some Truth.” Lots of backstage footage creates a picture of the life of the two, including more of her art background than these rock bios usually give. Ono herself appears at the end as do grizzled surviving members of the band for the album, from Klaus Voormann to Jim Keltner.

I still can’t forgive John Varvatos for turning CBGB’s into a high-end clothes boutique, but his love for the music that occurred there is what drives his new documentary series “Punk” (Epix, 10 p.m.), which does as good a job as any in chronicling the rise of the raucous movement, starting with Iggy Pop, who also happens to be an executive producer. Like the other rock doc tonight, it will be shocking to see how many of the surviving figures in the movement have aged.

“The Bachelor” (ABC, 8 p.m.) pretty much made his choice last week, but Cassie said she wasn’t sure she was 100 percent sure about engagement so they broke up completely and he jumped that damn fence. They’ll spend two hours tonight getting him back in the game and trying to convince Hannah and Tayshia that they’re still in it, too. But the two hour finale is Tuesday.

It’s the second season finale for “The Good Doctor” (ABC, 10 p.m.), which finds Shaun in a bar fight.

“The Passage” (Fox, 8 p.m.) has its first season finale, still in the midst of its cat and mouse game. Lynn counsels a pod kid on “Black Lightning” (CW, 9 p.m.).

A plan is hatched to catch a U.S. ambassador selling classified information to a Colombian cartel on “The Enemy Within” (NBC, 10 p.m.).

Blind auditions continue on “The Voice” (NBC, 8 p.m.).

“Arrow” (CW, 8 p.m.) tries to work with the Star City Police Department.

Jordan and the Praetor try to track down Heidi on “Shadowhunters” (Freeform, 8 p.m.).

On “The Neighborhood” (CBS, 8 p.m.), Gemma fires a teacher.

The dogs dig up a human bone on “Magnum P.I.” (CBS, 9 p.m.).

The two Toms plan a Puerto Vallarta vacation, but there’s some fallout on who exactly is invited on “Vanderpump Rules” (Bravo, 9 p.m.).

Shay faces surgery on “Love & Hip Hop: Miami” (VH1, 9 p.m.).

There’s tension as the house prepares for a Fourth of July party on “Summer House” (Bravo, 10 p.m.).

Brent has a meltdown on “Lindsay Lohan’s Beach Club” (MTV, 10 p.m.).

Joe enjoys hanging out with his nurse on “Man With a Plan” (CBS, 8:30 p.m.).

Fred Astaire movies minus Ginger Rogers are on Turner Classic Movies tonight, with “You Were Never Lovlier” (8 p.m.), “The Band Wagon” (10 p.m.), “Broadway Melody of 1940” (midnight), “Three Little Worlds” (2 a.m.) and “Easter Parade” (4 a.m.). All day, there are various literary adaptations: “La Bete Humane” (6 a.m.), “The Earrings of Madame De…” (8 a.m.), “Love in the Afternoon” (9:45 a.m.), “From the Earth to the Moon” (noon), “The Three Musketeers” (2 p.m.), “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” (4 p.m.) and “Madame Bovary” (6 p.m.).

Basketball has Charlotte at Houston (NBA, 8 p.m.) and Boston at Clippers (NBA, 10:30 p.m.).

In hockey it’s Mets at Houston (MLB, 1 p.m.), Angels vs. Texas (MLB, 4 p.m.) and Kansas City vs. Seattle (MLB, 9:30 p.m.).

Men’s college basketball has Hofstra vs. Delaware (CBS Sports, 6 p.m.), Wofford vs. UNC Greensboro (ESPN, 7 p.m.) in the Southern final, Wright State vs. Green Bay (ESPNU, 7 p.m.) in the Horizon semifinal, Northeastern vs. Charleston (CBS Sports, 8:30 p.m.), Iona vs. Monmouth (ESPN2, 9 p.m.) in the Metro Atlantic final, Gonzaga vs. Pepperdine (ESPN, 9 p.m.), Northern Kentucky vs. Oakland (ESPNU, 9 p.m.) and San Diego vs. Saint Mary’s (ESPN2, 11:30 p.m.).

In women’s games, it’s Marist vs. Quinnipiac (ESPNU, 2:30 p.m.) in the Metro Atlantic Final, Marquette vs. Georgetown (Fox Sports 1, 4 p.m.), DePaul vs. Creighton (Fox Sports 1, 6:30 p.m.), Connecticut vs. UCF (ESPN2, 7 p.m.) in the American final and Baylor vs. Iowa State (Fox Sports 1, 9 p.m.) in the Big 12 final.
