Game Change 7 p.m., HBO
This HBO movie, about John McCain’s 2008 presidential campaign, got 12 Emmy nominations, all of them deserved, especially those for Julianne Moore, Woody Harrelson, and Ed Harris (pictured, with Moore). We see a believably complex Sarah Palin who is eager yet incompetent, able to excite crowds and intoxicated by that ability. As Palin, Moore delivers so much more than parody or impersonation. She captures vulnerability, naivete, and egotism. And Harrelson does some of his best work as campaign strategist Steve Schmidt, a powerfully frustrated man trying to stem a disaster.
Craft Wars 8 p.m., TLC
Gluesticks, rise up! Felt, feel the power! This series tries to move crafting from the category of quaint hobby to art form. Oddly, this show is on the same channel as “Strange Sex,” “Virgin Diaries,” and “My Strange Addiction,” the freaky show that featured a woman obsessed with drinking and bathing in her own urine (I’m permanently scarred from that one, especially the Neti pot scene, and, no, I’m not making that up). But I digress. Tonight, “Craft Wars” includes the creation of a bedroom set from zippers.
