Tuesday TV: When Covid Hits the Poor

Child poverty has only been made worse by the pandemic and racial uprisings. A new “Frontline” (PBS, 9 p.m., check local listings) looks at the effects on families in Ohio. As with her earlier film, “Poor Kids” in 2012, director Jezza Neumann seeks her truth from children. 

The special “Harbor from the Holocaust” (PBS, 10 p.m., check local listings) recalls the time when 20,000 Jews found refuge in Shanghai during World War II. 

The early days of the music video network, long before it got involved with Teen Moms or Jersey Shore is told in the documentary “Biography: I Want My MTV” (A&E, 9 p.m.). 

The new crime series “Living a Nightmare” (Investigation Discovery, 10 p.m.) talks to families of crime victims. It comes after the third season premiere of “Homicide City” (Investigation Discovery, 9 p.m.), which is, according to the series, Philadelphia. 

Meg starts live streaming on “Dead Pixels” (CW, 8 p.m.). 

It’s an odd night for an original made-for-TV romance but here’s “Love, Romance & Chocolate” (Hallmark, 8 p.m.) about love for a chocolatier for royal family of Belgium with Lacey Chabert, Will Kemp and Maarten Ketels.
