We can almost laugh now, half a century later, at the goofballs who so botched the Watergate break-in. They certainly do in the five-episode “White House Plumbers” (HBO, 9 p.m.), which stars Woody Harrelson as E. Howard Hunt and Justin Theroux as G. Gordon Liddy. Liddy is a specific kind of nutcase, but Theroux sometimes gives him a Don Adams twist. The fun cast also includes Lena Heady of “Game of Thrones” as Judy Greer as the wives. It takes a while for action to start, but there are a lot of details to remember (like Dita Beard (played here by Kathleen Turner).

Another limited series “A Small Light” (National Geographic, Lifetime, 9 p.m.) brings a fresh angle to the story of Anne Frank, concentrating on the Dutch woman who arranged to shelter her family. Live Schreiber is part of the international cast. 

“E! Live from the Red Carpet” (E!, 6 p.m.) covers the Met Gala, the high-fashion New York fundraiser whose whole point is pretty much the red carpet entrance. 

Three patients with amyotrophic later sclerosis, or Lou Gehrig’s disease, are followed in the documentary “Matter of Mind: My ALS,” making its debut on “Independent Lens” (PBS, 10 p.m., check local listings).

“The Good Doctor” (ABC, 10 p.m.) heads to the delivery room in the season finale.
