Monday TV: Raising an Arm in Protest

By raising his gloved fist at the 1968 Summer Olympics, sprinter Tommy John became one of the first athletes to bring activism to sport. He recalls the moment in the new documentary “With Drawn Arms” (Starz, 9 p.m.), which includes comments from Megan Rapinoe, Jemele Hill, Jesse Williams and the late John Lewis. 

Stress levels are growing to the point where politics isn’t funny any more. But an Election Eve collection of past “Saturday Night Live” skits make up The 2020 SNL Election Special (NBC, 10 p.m.). 

A fourth season starts for “The Good Doctor” (ABC, 10 p.m.), who of course is dealing with COVID at his hospital as well.

“We Are Who We Are” (HBO, 10 p.m.) ends its first season. 

A whole new crew accompanies Captain Lee on the eighth season of “Below Dock” (Bravo, 9 p.m.). 

On “Soulmates” (AMC, 10 p.m.), a man learns that his soulmate is dead.

It was supposed to be double elimination night on “Dancing with the Stars” (ABC, 8 p.m.), but make it three: Jeannie Mai had to withdraw this morning out of health concerns. Last week, “Cheer” coach Monica Aldama got the boot.

“The Voice” (NBC, 8 p.m.) has its final night of blind auditions.
