Here’s what’s happening in the world of television for Tuesday, November 7. All times are Eastern.


Top pick

30 For 30 (ESPN, 10 p.m.): In this corner: Weighing in at more than 150 installments spread across eight years and multiple subseries, the winner of Best Documentary Feature at the 89th Academy Awards (even though O.J.: Made In America was a TV miniseries, not a movie), 30 For 30! And, in the opposite corner, in the bleach-blonde mullet and the $600 lizard shoes, the 16-time world champion carrying baggage that only a man of his wealth, power, and stature could bear, “Nature Boy” Ric Flair! Refereeing this bout is Noel Murray, who expects a good, clean fight, and insights into one of the most colorful and beloved personalities in sports entertainment history. Woo!

Wild card
