“Streets of Compton” (A&E 7pm) The Los Angeles neighborhood infamous for rap music and drug traffic gets the documentary treatment, exploring the suburb as seen through the eyes of current and former residents.

Friday 10

“Voltron: Legendary Defender” (Netflix streaming anytime) The beloved ’80s cartoon about a giant robot/lion who defends Earth and the color-coded kids who pilot it gets a post-millenial reboot.

“Time Beings: Extreme Time Travel Conspiracies” (History 8:03pm) History digs into the historical “evidence” of people who have traveled through time—basically all those Facebook memes your weird cousin posts of Civil War photographs with people carrying “cell phones.”

Saturday 11

“People’s List” (KOAT-7 7pm) People magazine transforms into a weekly news/entertainment/lifestyle program. Because who has time to read magazines on their Kindle these days?

“Hollywood 911” (Reelz 8pm) Find out what happens when 911 operators get emergency phone calls about celebrities like Whitney Houston, Shia LaBeouf, Miley Cyrus and Lamar Odom. … So much more glamorous than when grandma falls and breaks her hip.

Sunday 12

“The 70th Annual Tony Awards” (KRQE-13 7pm) Rap music awards are all about the Benjamins, but Broadway’s Tony awards (this year, anyway) are all about the Hamiltons.

The Night Stalker (Lifetime 7pm) Lou Diamond Philips finally gets around to the role he was born to play, infamous serial killer Richard Ramirez.

“Still The King” (CMT 10pm) Billy Ray Cyrus stars as a washed-up one-hit country music wonder (you don’t say) who finds himself making a living as an Elvis impersonator. When he drunkenly crashes his Cadillac into a rural church, he’s sentenced to perform community service. But then, he runs into the teenage daughter he never knew he had. So naturally, he pretends to be the church’s new minister. Man, that’s a lot of hijinks for one sitcom.

Monday 13

“BrainDead” (KRQE-13 9pm) Alien invaders are snacking on the brains of Washington, D.C. politicians (we suspected as much), and it’s up to one young Capitol Hill intern (Mary Elizabeth Winstead from Scott Pilgrim vs. the Word) to expose the political conspiracy.

“Spartan: Ultimate Team Challenge” (KOB-4 9pm) Given that American “Ninja Warrior” and “Super Sloppy Double Dare” already exist, do we really need more TV shows with obstacle courses?

Tuesday 14

“Uncle Buck” (KOAT-7 8pm) You loved Mike Epps as Art Carney in the 2005 remake of “The Honeymooners” (no, you didn’t), so you’ll probably love him as John Candy in this remake of 1989’s Uncle Buck (or not).

Wednesday 15

“Skin Wars: Fresh Paint” (Game Show Network 8pm) RuPaul hosts this spin-off of GSN’s body-painting competion. This one’s about body-painting too.
