Laura Linney joins, taking the voice of Carrie Chapman Catt, who takes a practical route compared to Alice Paul, whose protests get her jailed where she promptly begins a hunger strike.

On “Deadliest Catch” (Discovery, 8 p.m.), things get pretty dire: A boat catches fire during a bomb cyclone.

Duels continue on “World of Dance” (NBC, 10 p.m.). “America’s Got Talent” (NBC, 8 p.m.) appears to be a rerun of the season’s first spisode.

“Stargirl” (CW, 8 p.m.) gets herself in trouble after an unexpected confrontation.
