Thursday TV: Once More, With Puppets

The legacy of the civil rights hero killed Mississippi in 1966 is retold in “Walk Against Fear: James Meredith” (Smithsonian, 8 p.m.). 

A two hour episode of “Big Brother” (CBS, 8 p.m.) allows for the show’s first triple elimination. 

Reluctant to tell you of the violent new series “Gangs of London” (AMC Plus, streaming) in part because it’s on a streaming service nobody has. 

But it’s also the home of the new series about “The Salisbury Poisonings” (AMC Plus, streaming), based on the 2018 case. 

The uncharitably titled “CripTales” (BBC America, 10 p.m.) consists of six short films, written, directed and performed by someone with disabilities. 

The animated “Carmen Sandiego” (Netflix, streaming) returns for its third season, with Gina Rodriguez providing the voice

There’s more fighting on the second episode of the “Star Trek: Discovery” (CBS, 10 p.m.), imported from CBS All Access. 

“Impact of Murder” (Investigation Discovery, 9 p.m) looks into a murder investigation in West Haven, Con., in its season finale.

“Celebrity Family Feud” (ABC, 8 p.m.) pits Joel McHale vs. Ben Feldman and Jesse Palmer vs. Ceelo Green.

Kim comes to Washington on “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” (E!, 8 p.m.) and so does Terry in “The Bradshaw Bunch” (E!, 9 p.m.). Perhaps they shared a plane. 

“Press Your Luck” (ABC, 9 p.m.) avoids the Whammy. 

Mexico still hasn’t paid for “The Wall” (NBC, 8 p.m.).

A cold front hits the water supply on “Alaskan Bush People” (Discovery, 8 p.m.). 

Not sure that “Double Shot at Love with DJ Pauly D & Vinny” (MTV, 8 p.m.) deserves a reunion episode, let alone the first of multiple ones. 

Turner Classic Movies marks the 30th anniversary of the Film Foundation with a handful of their restorations: “La Strada” (8 p.m.), “Two for the Road” (10 p.m.), “Dodsworth” (midnight), “The Memphis Belle: A Story of the Flying Fortress” (2 a.m.) and “Black Girl” (3 a.m.).
