SEAL Team Six: The Raid on Osama Bin Laden 8 p.m., National Geographic
The most famous manhunt of our time has already produced a book (“No Easy Day” by actual SEAL Mark Owen) and will soon produce a movie (“Zero Dark Thirty” from “Hurt Locker” director Kathryn Bigelow, due next month). Nat Geo gets in on the action with this TV movie from the Weinstein Company. The film features familiar TV faces including Cam Gigandet (“The O.C.”), Robert Knepper (“Prison Break”), Freddy Rodriguez (“Six Feet Under”), and Kathleen Robertson (“Beverly Hills 90210”).
The Walking Dead 9 p.m., AMC
If the zombie apocalypse comes you definitely want the Governor with you, not against you, since he’s got fresh veggies and, um, trophy heads. For those who haven’t read the comics this is a nice, fresh turn in the road for the show.
The Amazing Race 8:30 p.m., Channel 4
Istanbul, not Constantinople
The Next Iron Chef: Redemption 9 p.m., Food Network
