Sunday TV: Trouble Down in Texas

OUTCRYThe five episode documentary series “Outcry” (Showtime, 10 p.m.) covers the case of a celebrated Texas high school football star convicted of child molestation but a large group in the small town rally behind him to get it overturned. Like a lot of true crime miniseries it seems a little slow going (it takes ten minutes to establish that high school football is popular in Texas). But there are some strong personalities and a compelling underlying story.

On the second episode of Sunday’s other premium cable true crime miniseries “I’ll Be Gone in the Dark” (HBO, 10 p.m.), we learn a little more about author Michelle McNamara. Maybe too much.

Lou and aye face a threat on “NOS4A2” (AMC, BBC America, 10 p.m.).

On “The Chi” (Showtime, 9 p.m.), Emmett and Tiff move in with Jada.

Revolution finally comes on “Snowpiercer” (TNT, 9 p.m.).

“Good Witch” (Hallmark, 9 p.m.) has its season finale with a housewarming at the mayor’s mansion.

The women are still in Palm Springs on “Married to Medicine Los Angeles” (Bravo, 9 p.m.).

“Desus & Mero” (Showtime, 11 p.m.) returns with a new episode, remotely.

A streaker is found dead in the Fens on “Grantchester” (PBS, 9 p.m., check local listings).

On “Beecham House” (PBS, 10 p.m., check local listings) Margaret intends to leave Delhi.

There’s a summer cookout episode of “The Food That Built America” (History, 3 p.m.).

“Tournament of Laughs” (TBS, 10 p.m.) moves into a new round.

Matching kitchens is one symptom on “sMothered” (TLC, 10 p.m.).

“Unearthed: Seven Wonders” (Science, 8 p.m.) is a new series about what the Seven Wonders of the World originally looked like.

Darcy Carden, Iliza Shlesinger, Twitch, Tone Bell, Yvette Nicole Brown and Amanda Seales play the final “Hollywood Game Night” (NBC, 8 p.m.) of the season.

A Turner Classic Movies Jessica Tandy double feature brings two films 45 years apart: “Driving Miss Daisy” (8 p.m.) and “The Seventh Cross” (10 p.m.).
