Here’s what’s happening in the world of television for Monday, January 29. All times are Eastern.

Top pick

Supergirl (The CW, 8 p.m.): Adrian Pasdar is back as Morgan Edge, who blames Lena (Katie McGrath) for his brush with death. Of course, Kara (Melissa Benoist) is there to try to mediate things as Sam (Odette Annable) confides in Alex (Chyler Leigh) about “losing time,” which is a cute euphemism for wreaking havoc as Reign, we suppose. As always, Caroline Siede will be there to get to the bottom of things.

Regular coverage

Lucifer (Fox, 8 p.m.)
The Alienist (TNT, 9 p.m.)

Wild card

AfroPoP: The Ultimate Cultural Exchange (PBS, 7 p.m.): The focus of the latest installment of this long-running and stirring docuseries is on two Dominican Republic natives, Johanna and Christina, who sought better lives in the French island group, Guadeloupe. “Between Two Shores” explores their hardships—and hopes.
