Gloria Estefan: The Standards Saturday, 10 p.m., WGBH

Come on shake your body baby do that . . . Great American Songbook! The Grammy-winning mistress of the Miami Sound Machine enlists the Henry Mancini Institute Orchestra to perform songs from her recent “The Standards” release. Among the tunes Estefan tackles are “Good Morning Heartache,” “They Can’t Take That Away From Me,” “How Long Has This Been Going On,” and her wedding song, “El Dia Que Me Quieras,” translated into English for the first time as “The Day You Say You Love Me.”


The Killing Sunday, 10 p.m., AMC

The revived series may have frustrated many in its first season when it didn’t solve its central mystery. But viewers that have stuck with the bleak, Seattle-set drama saw a strong third season with great performances from stars Mireille Enos (pictured), Joel Kinnaman, and Peter Sarsgaard. After last week’s somewhat shocking reveal, Sunday’s season finale ties up some loose ends and starts our detectives down a new path.
