Monday TV: ‘Wakefield’ on Showtime

From Australia comes the limited series “Wakefield” (Showtime, 9 p.m.), a psychological drama about doings at a psychiatric hospital in New South Wales and a nurse (Rudi Dharmalingam) who suddenly finds himself a patient as well. Geraldine Hakewill and Mandy McElhinney also star.

It follows a timely premium cable premiere of “Senior Moment” (Showtime, 7:15 p.m.) starring William Shatner as a retired NASA test pilot who meets Jean Smart on public transportation. Christopher Lloyd, Esai Morales and Kaye Ballard also star. Makes you think Shatner’s space trip last week was all a publicity connection.

“The Real Queens of Hip-Hop: The Women Who Changed the Game” (ABC, 10 p.m.) is a tie-in special to the series “Queen” that begins tomorrow.

A second season starts for “Manhunt: The Night Stalker” (Acorn TV, streaming), the popular series starring Martin Clunes.

On “POV” (PBS, 10 p.m., check local listings) is a story about a woman who returns home to Colombia after moving to the United States decades earlier to help her daughter. It’s titled “La Casa de Mama Icha.”

Sherri Shepherd, Ryan Hamilton, Dulce Sloan, Preacher Lawson, Natasha Leggero and Patton Oswalt join the host on the comedy special “Howie Mandel & Friends: Don’t Sneeze on Me” (CW, 8 p.m.).

“NCIS” (CBS, 9 p.m.) will be busy explaining to viewers what happened to Mark Harmon.
