Tuesday TV: Brian Wilson Documentary

Summertime brings Beach Boys classics, and “American Masters” (PBS, 9 p.m.) brings a new documentary on the group’s genius in “Brian Wilson: Long Promised Road,” that tells the story of his triumph on “Pet Sounds” and “Smile” and so many memorable singles, and Rolling Stone editor Jason Fine tries to interview the subject (not an easy task) by driving him around Los Angeles band landmarks and listening to his music. Bruce Springsteen, Elton John and Nick Jonas comment on his achievements; Jim James and Wilson unveil a new song written for the film “Right Where I Belong.”

Another artist assesses her career in “Halftime” (Netflix, streaming) in which Jennifer Lopez looks back at her career so far while preparing for the 2020 Super Bowl halftime show with Shakira. 

The latest stars presenting a slate of comedians are the leads from “Grace and Frankie.” “Jane & Lily: Ladies Night Live” (Netflix, streaming) has Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin introducing Iliza Shlesinger, Michelle Bureau, Christina Alonzo, Margaret Cho amount other female comics. 

The newsmagazine has a spinoff, concentrating on true crime, with “Dateline: The Last Day” (Peacock, streaming). Another spinoff, “Dateline: Unforgettable” (Oxygen, 8 p.m.) is also on tonight. 

“Mayans M.C.” (FX, 10 p.m.) has a fourth season finale.
