A second season begins for the rebooted “Ghostwriter” (Apple TV+, streaming) 

“Undercover Boss” (CBS, 9 p.m.) goes bowling. 

Adam Schiff, John O. Brennan, Keli Goff and Bret Stephens are on a new “Real Time with Bill Maher” (HBO, 11 p.m.).

During a pandemic maybe “Love After Lockup” (WeTV, 9 p.m.) may not be such an exotic thing.

Miners runs to solid ground before the ice vanishes on “Bering Sea Gold” (Discovery, 8 p.m.).

The Chupacabra pops up on “Monster Quest” (History, 9 p.m.).

“To Live or Die on Everest” (Discovery, 9 p.m.) tells the stories of those who lived. 

The horror films on Turner Classic Movies tonight involve rising from the grave with “The Ghoul” (8 p.m.), “The Black Sleep” (9:30 p.m.), “Mark of the Vampire” (11 p.m.) and “Night of the Living Dead” (12:15 a.m.). Then comes a couple of Burt Reynolds movies from the 1970s, “White Lightning” (2 a.m.) and “Gator” (3:45 a.m.).
