Here’s what’s happening in the world of television for Monday, January 8. All times are Eastern. (Note: Pickings are still kind of slim at this time.)

Top pick

David Bowie: The Last Five Years (HBO, 8 p.m.): This David Bowie documentary hits HBO two years after his death, which is just enough time for you to have watched every other doc about the late rock icon. Director Francis Whately has pored over Bowie’s private documents and interviewed his longtime collaborators like Tony Visconti to turn up new revelations, like the fact that The Next Day and Blackstar almost didn’t get made. So put on your favorite platform shoes or just slap on some extra eyeliner and enjoy the show.
