Michael Douglas stars as legendary pianist Liberace in this long-awaited biopic from director Steven Soderbergh. Based on the memoir of the same name by Liberace's lover Scott Thorson (played with gusto by Matt Damon), the film covers the two men's relationship from their first meeting to the aftereffects of the 1982 palimony suit Thorson filed when Liberace moved on. Rob Lowe, Debbie Reynolds, Scott Bakula and Dan Aykroyd also star.
Gary Sinise and Joe Mantegna return to host this tribute to service members and veterans, airing from the West Lawn of the Capitol.

Tonight's two-hour finale for the critically acclaimed but ratings-challenged musical drama series is all about the Tony Awards; in the first hour, the gang awaits news of who's nominated, then the big night arrives in "The Nominations; The Tonys." Christian Borle, Megan Hilty and Anjelica Huston star.
Rock star and entrepreneur Bret Michaels turns a fascinating array of run-down RVs into mobile mansions for their deserving owners in this fun and functional new series. "Whether you've lived the RV lifestyle like I have or you haven't done it yet, I want people to be compelled by the stories and the actual mechanics -- and then love what unfolds at the end," says Michaels, who has logged more than three million miles in motor homes.
U.S. open-wheel racing's biggest race, the Indianapolis 500, revs up for the 97th time from Indianapolis Motor Speedway with the traditional "Gentlemen, start your engines." Answering the call on the 2.5-mile oval will be the likes of Ryan Hunter-Reay, James Hinchcliffe, Helio Castroneves, Scott Dixon and 2012 champion Dario Franchitti.
It's the year's second Grand Slam tournament and the culmination of the European clay-court season as the French Open kicks off in Paris. Rafael Nadal goes for his eighth singles title but will face competition from Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray and longtime foe Roger Federer. On the women's side, Maria Sharapova completed the career Slam with her first French Open win in 2012. Top challengers include Serena Williams, Victoria Azarenka, Li Na and Petra Kvitova.
Formula One returns to one of the world's most prestigious races on one of the most famous courses, the Circuit de Monaco, for the Monaco Grand Prix. Don't be fooled by the breathtaking Mediterranean scenery along the course and through the streets of Monte Carlo and La Condamine. The Monaco GP is one of the toughest for drivers, with hairpin turns and changes in elevation and scant room to pass. Australia's Mark Webber won the race from pole last year.
When playwright Ntozake Shange's award-winning "For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When the Rainbow Is Enuf" opened off-Broadway in 1974, her vibrant gallery of female characters was billed as a "choreo-poem." It's probably unfilmable in conventional terms, but while Tyler Perry deserves credit for trying to translate this iconic theater piece to the screen, his decision to render it into a pedestrian soap opera is definitely the wrong way to go.
A big day in motorsports concludes in North Carolina with the Sprint Cup's longest race, the Coca-Cola 600. A field including Dale Earnhardt Jr., Jimmie Johnson, Brad Keselowski, Greg Biffle and Carl Edwards will take to the 1.5-mile quad oval of Charlotte Motor Speedway in a race that begins in evening and ends at night, meaning temperature changes along with the race's 600-mile length will surely pose challenges for drivers and crews.
Wesley Snipes had a good run in bringing the Marvel Comics character to life, and the franchise still proved to have box-office potency with this third chapter from 2004. Creatively, though, this Blade had lost some of its edge in a plot that found the title character teaming with his mentor's (Kris Kristofferson) daughter (Jessica Biel) and a vampire hunter (Ryan Reynolds) to pursue a villainess (Parker Posey) who wants to resurrect Dracula (Dominic Purcell).
A clash of National League East rivals is in the offing tonight at Citi Field, where David Wright and the New York Mets close out a three-game series against Freddie Freeman and the Atlanta Braves. While the Braves jumped out to the division lead thanks to stellar pitching and a lot of home runs, the Amazins have regressed to the mean following a better-than-expected start. These teams split two games at Turner Field earlier this month.
Avalanche-dodging grizzlies, head-bashing bighorn sheep, elusive mountain lions and cunning coyotes are among the creatures featured in the new episode "Learn Young or Die," which looks at the fight for survival in North America's remote forests and mountains.
To contain the plague, Cesare (Francois Arnaud) burns Costanzo's palace with him inside. A young beauty catches Micheletto's (Sean Harris) eye. Realizing that her family needs a power base in Naples, Lucrezia (Holliday Grainger) engineers the ascent of Prince Frederigo (Luke Allen-Gale) to the throne, in part by framing his rival for an attempt on his life, in the new episode "Lucrezia's Gambit."
