PICK OF THE NIGHT

Mavis!

HBO, 9 p.m.

Mavis Stapes, the legendary soul singer and activist from Chicago, has had an awe-inspiring career. But as this documentary more than makes clear, she’s not done yet. “I’ll stop singing when I have nothing left to say,” Staples says in the doc. She’s not the only one with something to say, either: Bonnie Raitt, Chuck D, Jeff Tweedy, and more make appearances to honor the singer. Also: there’s some hot gossip about Bob Dylan worth tuning in for.

Major League Legends

Smithsonian, 8 p.m.

Baseball isn’t here quite yet, but it almost is! In the meantime, fans of the national pastime can tune into this new series. Each Martin Sheen-narrated episode takes a deep look at the life of a different player, including Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, and Ted Williams (go Sox!). Tonight’s episode, however, tackles the great Hank Aaron and his journey to become the home run king.

BATS— CRAZY

Gotham

Fox, 8 p.m.

The logline for tonight’s midseason premiere hints that “a chilling villain emerges in Gotham,” so you know what that means: It’s Ice T! Just kidding, it’s obviously going to be Mr. Freeze — but instead of ol’ Arnold Schwarzenegger, the baddie will be played by Nathan Darrow of House of Cards and Billions fame.
