“Miss Marple” (8 p.m. ET on PBS)
Miss Marple (Julia McKenzie) will be on vacation when Season 7 of the PBS mystery series premieres, but that doesn’t mean she’ll be taking a break. When a fellow guest suddenly dies it’ll be up to Miss Marple to investigate his death – which leads to a “web of deceit, murder and dark magic.”
“Madam Secretary” (8:30 p.m. ET/ 8 p.m. PT on CBS)
Get ready to meet newly-appointed Secretary of State Elizabeth McCord (Téa Leoni) – who immediately gets sucked into “complex political challenges” and an international hostage situation. But this new CBS drama doesn’t just follow Elizabeth’s time at work, it also explores the major changes that her and her children are dealing with at home.
“Liv & Maddie” (8:30 p.m. ET on Disney)
Who is ready for the annual Wisconsin Cheddar Brat Cheese Easting Contest? Disney Channel’s Season 2 of “Liv & Maddie” will return with Liv (Dove Cameron) ecstatic to partake in the festivities after missing them for four years.
