Sunday TV: Shark Week Seeks Ideas

For more than three decades, Shark Week has been serious and ridiculous. It begins more on the latter side this year with its oddball kickoff “Tyson vs. Jaws: Rumble on the Reef” (Discovery, 9 p.m.), in which former heavyweight champ Mike Tyson against a tiger shark, supposedly in an underwater bout. Also on tonight: “Air Jaws: Ultimate Breach Off” (Discovery, 8 p.m.) and “Shark Lockdown” (Discovery, 10 p.m.). 

The snazzy looking “Perry Mason” (HBO, 9 p.m.) ends its first season with some sort of resolution to the big trial. A second season has been ordered. 

Also reaching closure: the eight-episode season of “The Alienist: Angel of Darkness” (TNT, 9 p.m.) ends after a pair of episodes. 

From the network that brought you “Surviving R. Kelly,” here’s an update on the notorious financier accused of trafficking and assaulting young women. “Surviving Jeffrey Epstein” (Lifetime, 8 p.m.) is a two night documentary that comes on the one year anniversary of his death in prison. 

A murder investigation in Oxford starts the new season of “Endeavour” (PBS, 9 p.m.) as it moves into the 1970s.

A network that is usually more frivolous looks at serious topics with a roundtable discussion, “Race in America: A Movement Not a Moment” (Bravo, 10 p.m.).

On the dark British import “We Hunt Together” (Showtime, 10 p.m.), Eve Myles and Babou Ceesay play a pair of detectives in pursuit of a couple of murderers.
